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.

"Perfect" head over seemingly average, pale, gold ale. Held to light the continually rising bubbles and clean simplicity of this beer shine through. Nose is of yeast and hops, with very little alcohol. Taste follows suit. But the palate is very complex with cereal and other similarities I can't put a finger on. I want to rerate a "kept" bottle. The alcohol is *very* well hidden, which make big gulps great. (Slight alcohol tingle on tounge, but 8.5%?). Clean and easy, good stuff.

Pale yellow color with thin foam layer. Yeasty Belgian smell. The taste is super fine carbonated, very yeasty and boozy and reminds me of a Belgian tripel. The aftertaste is dry and belgian.

Golden color with big white head. Floral aroma, bananas, spicy yeasts, grainy. Taste is similar, carbonation is high. Nice if you like Belgian Blondes, I don’t think it stands out.

Eindelijk eens een wat steviger bier in Frankrijk. Goeie body. Lekkere koolzuur. Verder geen uitzonderlijke biere de garde. Maar smaakt prima.

Bottle - clear pale yellow with thick white head which stays foamy to the end. Heavy carbonation - floral aroma. Slight ting on tongue and in mouth. Refreshing taste.

Nice enough at first. It as it got warmer it tasted of alcohol and corn. I’m happy I finally found a small bottle of this.
