COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Alengrin (2463) - BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2014
One of the most famous and classic bières de garde, with creamy, coarse, off-white head and pure golden colour, clear at first but hazy with deposit as expected, calm fizz. Aroma has something sweaty which at first disturbed me a bit, luckily it fades away after a while to reveal impressions of unripe peach, sour cream, apple juice, juniper berries, white bread, baker’s yeast, straw, gin, cooked potato and iron. Sweetish, rather delicate onset, apple, peach and pineapple, hint of iron but not really disturbing, soft mouthfeel, honeyish malt sweetness, smooth, with a finish of grassy hop bitterishness and wodka-like, warming alcohol, not very well hidden but not really disturbing either. In all, a pleasant beer and a fine introduction to the style.

How to open a 3 Monts bottle in less than 30 seconds 1. Remove the capsule from the top of the bottle. 2. Take an ordinary table knife and pry one end of the metal staple away from the bottle, pointing the bottle away from you. 3. The staple will pop off the bottle smartly! 4. Remove the cork using a corkscrew with "wings." 5. Pour our the ale and enjoy!

Golden color with white head. Hoppy aroma. Taste of malt, hops and something spicy. Medium body and carbonation. Pleasant to drink.

aletcm (138) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 21, 2014
Cor amarelo ouro. Espuma de boa formação e pouca persistência. Aroma de frutas cítricas, pêssego e caramelo. No sabor, um pouco de acidez, grapefruit, médio amargor que persiste um pouco no final seco e um pouco adstringente boa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
