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.

Eructoblaster (4205) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2005
Limpid golden body with average carbonation. Although its white bubbly head tends to fade quickly, a thin creamy lacing remains until we empty the glass. Nice malty aroma with sweet, honeyish and fruity notes. Alcohol is easily detectable, without being unpleasant. Taste is well balanced and surprisingly mild. It carries some hoppy, bready, and corny notes. Ends with a good warming finish. This is a good and pretty well balanced bière de garde, but I must admit that I was expecting something more complex.

A full bodied beer with a big head and a honey sweetness, yet a slightly bitter finish. Soft on the palate with a flowery hops. Good brew.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2005
Couleur dorée foncée, apparence claire comme de l’eau, pleinement filtrée. Faible mousse blanche diminuant rapidement, un très faible dégagement gazeux observable au travers du liquide. Arômes initiaux de sucre allant entre le sucre candi et les sucre inverti, rappelant ainsi le miel. Arômes secondaires introduisant un houblon légèrement fruité, style Hallertauer, et également un faible mais grandissant profil de malt. Une touche de maïs, maïs en crème est aussi apparente. L’alcool apparaît initialement comme évidente et très détaché du reste des saveurs. La vraie magie se produit lorsque le liquide attend la température de la pièce…beurre et butterscotch se fusionnent sous des notes phénoliques, boisées et épicées (gingembre) se mariant ainsi très bien avec le malt au ton de caramel, masquant conséquemment la plupart de l’alcool apparaissant initialement comme déplacé. L’étalement devient ainsi plus long, les goûts plus évolutifs. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince, carbonatation piquante. Vraiment à boire température pièce. Bouteille, Dép. Rahman, août 2005.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2008 Pours a clear golden color with numerous tiny bubbles forcefully spiraling upward, the head is white, thick and fluffy, the head diminishes slowly and leaves nice lacing on the glass. Subtle and inviting aroma of fruits and spices. The flavor is composed of fruits, spices and yeast, the intensity is moderate, it feels slightly subtle and it goes well with the mellow texture, comfy like a good old chair. As with the rest of this beer the carbonation is moderate, just enough to transport the different elements. This beer is very relaxing, subtle, smooth, the kind of beer I would enjoy on a quiet sunday morning, delicate harmony.

DYCSoccer17 (3696) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Bottle. Sour, funky, DMS-like aromas in the nose of this. Some acidic fruit-like notes and maybe a bit of bananas. Transparent yellow color with a white head a la BMC. Start is kind of must, and funky. Like an old swampy cellar. In the middle, there are sweet malty notes with a nice body turning very very woody to finish with some bitterness as well. A different beer.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Lovely golden beer with a decent head. Starts clear and hazes the closer you reach the huge sediment at the bottom. Very full-bodied and quite potent without being alcoholic as such. Has the typical earthy, musty artinal touch often found in Bière de Gardes. 090602

joergen (28102) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2005 Bottled. Clear yellow coloured with a huge white head. Sweet aroma with fruity and spicy notes. Flavour of fruits, spices and malts with notes of alcohol.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle. Golden color with a white head. The taste is a thin light fruity body with a thin palate.

3.3
bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2005
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy yellow body with a large white head. Aroma of florals, mustiness, and butter. Creamy mouthfeel. Flavor of spicy yeast, butter, apple, and chardonnay grapes.

3.4
whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Lemon body with a foamy white head. Mild citrus and honey nose with light floral notes and a touch of cork/oxidation. Musty, sweet honey flavor with some spicy hops and a bit of hot alcohol. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Not bad, but the musty, oxidized character seems contrived and doesn’t thrill me.
