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.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2007
Pale yellow transparant body with a large head and mediocre lacing. Bland aroma, reminded me of crappy pilsners and other cheap pale lagers. Hardly any hops - lots of generic malt though. The taste was light, malty and somewhat dry. Alcohol wasn’t really noticable and stayed on the background. Very thin & watery mouthfeel. Boring brew.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Pours a crystal clear golden color, full of champagne-like effervesence, all sitting beneath an inch or two of nearly white, tightly-packed foam. There’s lacing after each sip, but the lace then slowly slides back down into the glass. A good solid ring of foam remains throughout the glass. Pleasing aroma of sweet fruity white wine - and faint alcohol. Initially moderately sweet, but that was only the first sip. Every subsequent sip (and there have been several) has been pretty dry, and both the sweet and the dry were delicious. Spicy like a light coriander. A hint of sweet malt remains in the aftertaste. Has the texture of a dry sparkling mead - softly carbonated but lots of it. Interesting beer, but would have liked more malt character to call it exceptional. Odd - take a small sip, get dry taste. Take a large sip, get a mildly malty sweet taste.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2007
Pours as a huge white foam with a light yellow liquid eventually appearing underneath. Strong aroma of apple and lemon. Flavour is more apple-like and has a buttery aspect and texture. Lots of alcohol in the finish. May have needed more aging.

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2007
(Bottled, 0.75l) Clear, paleish golden color with a medium, quite lasting, foamy head. Grassy-hoppy aroma, reminiscent of North-German pilseners, but after a moment, there’s also some European Strong Lager’ish, fruity-alcoholic aroma. Lightly malty, dry-grassy-hoppy, quite alcoholic flavor. Light to medium-bodied, dryish palate with pretty fizzy carbonation - much like sparkling wine. An interesting mix of cheap pilsener from Lidl, strong malt liquour, and dry sparkling wine. Definitely not up to the fancy looks of the bottle in sophistication, but nice to try once. It will also get you drunk fast, and was quite cheap at 3.60 euros for 0.75l in Amsterdam...

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Pours a crystal clear light gold with a medium white head. Aroma for some reason made me think of my grandpa’s Schaefer (go figure). I really did not like the first taste of this at all. Tasted like hoppy alcohol with no malt sweetness. As I had some more sips th eflavor kind of grew on me and I could detect the malt presence better. The alcohol flavor is still quite pronounced. Not at all my type of beer, but

Svesse (8484) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2006
(Bottle) Yellow colour, with huge, brief white head. Yeast residue in the bottle. Lively. Malty nose with notes of lemon, toast and grassy hops. Malty, fruity taste with citrus,white bread, herbs and spicy, floral hops. Notes of yeast. Malty sweetness lingering through in the finish. Nice and tasty.

jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Bottle. Weak aroma, nothing standing out. Very gold look with thin head. Flavor is very mild with a slight spice and very slight alcohol burn. Smooth brew. A very dissapoiinting biere de garde.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2006
Aroma is seriously yeasty, honey, peachy and floural hops kicking in to. Taste is similarly yeasty, tastes to me like a strong golden ale, very drinkable.

mkgrenwel (618) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Lightfruity malt. Apple and pear. Spicy floral hops. Pepper and slight cinnamon. Has some of that belgian alcohol funk and burn. Tasty and refreshing, but not anything impressive.
