The 3MONTS beer : A wonderful return to nature, with its flavour of yesteryear, this is a beer that was drawn from the wooden metal-circled barrels to fill so many mugs in our Flanders bars! Its bitterness comes from our hop fields scattered throughout the region. Brewed by infusions, it is an old-fashioned rising beer made with strong and hearty Flemish hops. Fermented using top yeasts, like the barrel brewers of yore and clamped like bonderised barrels.

Bottle into glass. Earthy leather aroma. Pours a clear pale with white head. Taste is light to medium sour. Medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long finish. A very interesting beer with lots of character.

Aged a few years bottle at home. Very different to fresh. Sediment, cloudy blonde colour, still a big head. Spice, vanilla and marzipan, which I have never found before in this beer or any beer for that matter. I’m a big fan of amaretto so for that the aged trois monts gets an A+.

Huge frothy white head with very good retention. Clear golden yellow. Soft aroma, malty, almost no hop, slight bread and honey. Taste has some bitterness and dryness, medium sweet malty, spicy and yeasty. Some alcohol presence, some caramel too. Crispy palate.

[backlog] 31-12-15 / bottle at home, bought in France. A lot of foam, typical Biere de Garde. Well carbonated. Medium sweet body. Bitter finish. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 2.75/5

M_Sack (623) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2016
Bottle. Clear gold, white head with strong lacing. Yeasty aromas of bugglegum and banana, stone fruit, lemon blossom, horse blanket and a caramel finish. Rich, boozy flavours fo bubblegum, honey, slight nuttiness and pleasant sweetness. Great beer with a cheese plate.

Bière de garde des Flandres de 8,5 % Abv, à l’œil, la 3 Monts est d’un beau blond translucide. Ses fines bulles couplées à belle effervescence et à une mousse de 2 cm d’épaisseur finissent de lui consacrer une classe certaine. Si l’on en croit le site internet, la gamme 3 Monts présenterait des bières à l’équilibre parfait entre leur corps, leur amertume et leur taux d’alcool. La brasserie St Sylvestre devrait donc revoir son référentiel de la perfection. Le nez est largement porté sur le malt et l’alcool. Il vous sera cependant possible de distinguer de légère nuances de pommes A la dégustation, l’attaque sur le malt laisse place une amertume relativement bien maîtrisée mais sans aucune nuance. Où sont nos 3 monts? Le panorama est particulièrement plat! La longueur en bouche est plutôt bonne mais sur une finale purement alcoolique et légèrement astringente la rendant légèrement désagréable. Heureusement la 3 Monts n’est pas sur-saturée en sucre, ce qui ne la rend pas écœurante. Un conseil : ne vous attardez pas de trop et contournez rapidement ces monts....
