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.

poisoneddwarf (1931) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - NOV 9, 2012
750 ml corked and clamped bottle. Pours clear gold with a large white soapy head with good retention. Aroma consists of barnyard funk, banana, earth, doughy bread. Taste is sweet and savory, like fresh-mown hay; finishes dryly. Not bad.

@ Basunen 15-6-27: doftar och smaker riktigt fulbira. Liten aning metall och små smöriga toner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

floydslip (246) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Pale gold beer with a thin fizzy bright white head. Sour, musky nose of lemon, wood, and leaves. Flavor is brighter with a sour yeasty opening followed by a mild, cardboard like bitterness, which is then cut through by some citrus and spice. Enjoyable.

stoutnick (715) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2015
Urine straw coloured pour. Aroma is mild sweetness, mild earthiness. Taste is very sweet and tangy. Not my thing.

jamaty (1155) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Botella de 75cl. Pajiza de color. Aundante espuma blanca. El aroma no dice nada. En boca tiene carbonatacion alta y cuerpo medio. Ningun sabor muy marcado, bastante bebible, escondiendo bien el alcohol. Final potente, amargo y dejando aparecer poco a poco el calor alcoholico. Normalita.

vidmidia (77) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - MAY 24, 2015
Amarela clara, límpida. Espuma abundante de média duração. Aroma de lúpulo e especiarias. Sabor equilibrado de cereais, com notas de especiarias, melado e guaraná. Retrogosto seco com final amargo. Menos adocicada que costuma ser uma bière de garde.

GuideDogSaint (778) - Xiamen, CHINA - MAY 23, 2015
330ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of Belgian style yeast, hay and bread. Hint of alcohol. Bittersweet finish. Drunk while eating a spicy burger so notes maybe not accurate!

UXO (763) - CANADA - MAY 10, 2015
Pours clear pale straw with three fingers of fluffy white head, excellent retention and moderate patchy lacing. (4/5) Nose is sweet pale malt, green apple, doughy yeast, grassy hops, slightly dusty. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter, slight tart and funk. (7/10) Medium bodied, slightly oily, moderate carbonation, dry vinous bitter and boozy finish. (4/5) Not as sweet as some other Bières de Garde, with a dry vinous character. There’s also a little funk and tart to keep things interesting, and the hops are relatively pronounced - lots of Belgian character from both the yeast and the hops, actually. A French style made with Belgian (Flanders) hops, and it shows characteristics of both lineages. The ABV is definitely present, but largely in the finish, and is actually fairly subdued for the weight. I prefer this type of interpretation of the style over the sweeter, maltier ones. (15/20)

Alpha10 (417) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2015
2015/04/20 - Pours a clear, pale gold colour with a thick, rocky, white head that lingers. Aroma is sweet; pale malts, cereal, mild apple, green grape, dough and grassy hops. Taste is cereal, mild apple and grape, wood, pale malts, white wine notes and grassy hops. A touch metallic. Mouthfeel is light with effervescent carbonation and a vinous finish that is drying and mildly bitter. Drinkable, but nothing remarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light toffee & grape notes on the nose. Spicy & bitter grapefruit taste with a great deal of effervescence. Rated by BrewTom
