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.

RyanE (145) - British Columbia, - FEB 6, 2013
Golden pour with thick foamy head. Complex aromas with citrus, dried fruit and crackers. Good balance, light maltiness, hints of sourdough. Not a fan of the finish. Oily and alcoholic.

labeerinthum (705) - Milano, ITALY - JAN 13, 2017
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso ritrova un buon profumo di floreale e di speziato. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è apprezzabile. Il cappello di schiuma ha una discreta resistenza. La grandezza delle bollicine è media, come la carbonazione. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Le bollicine sono fini. La carbonazione è persistente ed insistita. Il colore è giallo dorato. Il corpo è pieno. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di miele, cereali e fiori.

Cantabrian (1077) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 5, 2017
I kept this bottle for almost five years, before the most underwhelming tasting session ever. Ordinary aroma of an uninteresting pale ale, almost skunky as an euro lager, with a touch of sweet maltiness and stonefruit. Flavour is not much better, following the aroma, with a boring grassy bitterness that does not save the day. Colour is as faded gold as the label, with a very bubbly head and the body is rather thin, watery. Gets a 3 on palate for the crispness. Cork clamp is very inconvenient. I have had better ones on this style, but it will definitely put me off for new ones.

Zarrach76 (163) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 2, 2017
Blonde de chez blonde, dorée à souhait avec une chevelure réduite à sa plus simple expression (coupe Armée de Terre voir Légion Etrangère...). Au nez, un côté fumé/boisé s’affirme directement. On sent de la bonne céréale, un houblonnage fin, des malts plus torréfiés que pour la moyenne des blondes, avec des arômes de caramel et de pain tout juste sorti du four. Des notes d’amande amer, de genièvre, de noix, de pissenlit, de paille. Nez clairement végétal. L’alcool est assez sage malgré les 8.5%. Carbonatation moyenne, amertume fine, longue et équilibré, texture souple presque huileuse sur la fin de gorgée, arômes de cassonade, de caramel, de résineux, d’herbes, de zest d’agrumes... La levure est bien droite, ferme et ne s’attarde pas sur les saveurs de sous-bois. Le final d’une longueur plus qu’honorable est dans l’amertume, avec des arômes à cheval entre les végétaux, les notes de noix fraîche et de bois ainsi que les malts qui ferment la marche. Les 8.5% restent discrets et respectent l’équilibre général. Une bonne bière de garde avec un côté rétro dans l’élaboration qui ravira le plus grand nombre... Bouteille 75cl, supermarché Z.

From 750ml bottle. Poured with huge, medium sized bubbles head with wonderful formation and head retention. Beer was perfectly crystal clear and beautiful. Aroma was subtle and a little like a white wine. Flavour is subtle with a little bitterness similar to a light lager but is more refined than typical mass market lager

Kittenbieer (135) - LYON, FRANCE - DEC 3, 2016
Dégustée dans un verre Duvel, belle robe dorée surmontée d’une mousse blanche très généreuse avec une forte carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des arômes maltés et levurés avec une pointe d’alcool.La bouche nous amène sur des saveurs à l’image du nez avec en finale une amertume mêlée à une petite lourdeur peu agréable .Une 3 monts que je n’essaierai pas de gravir une 2ème fois!

appiantiqua (135) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 3, 2016
Dégustée dans un verre Duvel. Température de début 7 à 8°. Belle robe dorée et transparente surmontée d’une généreuse et tenace mousse blanche; bonne carbonatation. Nez épicé et levuré. Goût également sur les épices et la levure avec des saveurs maltées. La finale est sur l’amertume avec malheureusement une petite lourdeur. Une bière de garde qui évoque une triple moyenne.

minutemat (4908) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2016
75cl bottle at Granny’s house in Hazebrouck, France. Also on tap at Het Hoek Kerk. Pours clear gold, large white head. Aroma is light herbs, with a sugary sweetness. Taste has some floral elements, honey, yeast.. fairly light in flavour and generally quite light for the strength. Pleasant enough for an afternoon beer, but fails to stand up against others classic BdGs.

Drank this one straight from the bottle. A bit of honey, some dry hoppiness, a little malty. A decent beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
