4.33/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the bottle into a wine/goblet type glass.

Really wonderful creamy white head forms while pouring, and some snappy sounding carbonation can be heard. Lots of pin-head style bubbles. Some faint whispy lacing among the collar while drinking. The body is a nice classic golden yellow and crystal clear. good rising carbonation.

Nose feels completely Belgian in a way. Sweet candy. Yeasty. Mild honey and nice mellow hop and Belgian like ? sweetness. This feels very inviting.

Palate hits with a crisp wine like body. Sweet tasting wine, with a big yeast profile. Great effervescent carbonation with mixes of honey, and lemon. Angles of pear and champagne crispness abound everywhere. Bold and big without a lot of alcohol fronting booze or rush either.

Overall just a great beer to enjoy, a drink that deserves a lot of attention. Deserves it's place like a solid white wine next to it.

3.73/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pour is light yellow with a little haze. White head stays across the top - light lacing.

Nose of straw, corriander, freshly plowed field dirt. A little yeasty funk.

Effervescent entry - straw flavor - a hint of lemon. Medium mouthfeel. A complexity brought by the carbonation. It dances around the palate a bit.

Flavors are decent, but fairly simple. Finish is crisp - but a lingering sweetness comes back after a few seconds and lingers.

A decent beer, but rather simple and safe.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: spot on pour: crystal clear yellow beer with a massive foamy head that slimmed somewhat but never went away; plenty of fine-bubbled lace

S: bright, fresh hop and yeast aromas, reminded me of grassy fields in sunshine

T: flash of spice, then an easy, clean taste that becomes almost champagne-like; some light citruses, subtle woodsy and pale fruit flavors weave throughout.

M: very drinkable, brightly effervescent, clean finishing; tantilizing on the tongue. Finishes right between sweet and dry.

O: super classy pale from the same brewers that give us Gavroche (also considered a biere de garde here (but a darker beer, more like a red ale, to me)). 3 Monts is a quality brew - could be France's equivalent to Duvel, but lighter-bodied and with less taste profile complexity. This is typically not a go-to style for me, but this is certainly a go-to beer. Evokes thoughts of the summertime, farm gardens, and blue skies.

Nicely crafted.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Very interesting method of securing the cork with a staple looking piece. Pours slightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger fairly dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some good spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of grape, apple, hay, grass, pepper, honey, earth, pear, lemon zest, bread, and light fruity funkiness. Nice and well balanced aromas with good strength and complexity; very pleasant. Taste of apple, grape, honey, herbal, hay, grass, pear, lemon, pepper, earth, clove, bread, and cracker. Light earthy tartness and herbal spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, hay, grass, earth, pepper, clove, bread, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of fruity flavors and earthy spiciness; with nice complexity and no cloying flavors. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly crisp and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed on the finish at all. Overall this is an excellent Biere de Garde! Great flavor complexity and balance; and extremely smooth to sip on. Highly enjoyable offering.

Served in an over-sized tulip.

Appearance: This beer looks and pours alike a true classic with me having to have a sip. Golden body that has bubbles going to the top throughout.

Smell: It smells a little yeasty like your usual dubbel, but maybe a little bit more.

Taste: Little honey here and there and creamy like a marzen, hoppy like your pilsener.

Mouth: The feel of this beer is outstanding with medium to heavy, a little more friendly on the heavy side but seriously crispy can a beer get.

Overall: I had this not knowing a thing about it this beer feels like the best "Imperial Pilsener" I have ever had. I was astonished on the greatness of this beer. I will but it again and again yes that good...Salud!

4.35/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

For today's tasting I spied an odd presented cork bottle at the back of my local 1st Choice Liquor. It seemed to cry out "Drink me, I look like a fancy Belgian trippel", and having both fond (Duvel, Chimay, Orval) and not-so-fond (Abbaye De Floreffe Prima Melior) memories of them I decided to take another chance.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into some sort of a fluted chalice that is actually a cocktail glass however it does the job.

A: Pours and looks like a typical Champagne: 4cm gassy white head and nice golden body, however with the addition of haze from the bottle conditioning. Pleasing enough thus far.

S: Similar aroma to Duvel (though not quite as pronounced), the dry fruitiness of a Pinot Gris, a nice crisp apple peel tempers throughout, with that hint of yeast on the nose.

T: It's alright. 3 Monts has made a comparable brew to a Belgian tripel, without much of the finesse the Belgian brewers bring to the art. It has an up front double malt flavour, think barley/grain/caramel, which is followed by some astringent and acidic crisp apple, not unlike a good dry cider, and a dry finish. This one actually improves in flavour as it gets warmer and I would imagine the ideal drinking temp to be around 5 degrees celcius (I have a fridge with a broken thermostat that freezes everything in winter). If you can imagine cider, lager and Champagne together this is what the outcome might be.

M: Very excited, Champagne bubbly mouthfeel. Carbonation is reasonably high and the body is medium.

D: This is a beer that gets better as you drink it. Yes it's not Duvel, but it is half the price of it's Belgian cousin and half price is the right price for this... and Duvel could be about $5 cheaper per 750ml bottle too. It will get you drunk as quickly as Duvel, and it has many similar characteristics as well, but somehow it just doesn't hit the same high point in the flavour department and sadly that is the only thing holding 3 Monts back from a near perfect score. If there was an interesting hops flavour in there then maybe it could be a 5/5. As it is I can say one thing: Duvel for the masses.

Food match: With a brew of such vinous characters I would recommend a food match similar to a like-minded wine, Pinot Gris; Bouillabaisse, Peruvian ceviche, Paella or Spaghetti aglio olio e peperoncino.

An old favorite revisited, pours with a pure white head leaving lace on the sides of the glass even before the first sip. Clear gold brilliance, tightly collared & finely carbonated and evidenced by the small bubbles.

Smell is not to much to talk about...a light malt/lager-like aroma, not really as I remember it. Taste is a thinnish mouthfeel and slightly tart then some hoppiness. Finishes quickly..I remember this being much better years back. The bottle is fresh and in good condition, dunno..maybe it's the trained palate I've attained in the years since last sampling.

Pours a crystal clear light yellow with a 2 inch puffy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, light fruits, and some skunky aromas that fade as the beer warms. Taste is of grain, grass/hay, slight fruit, and some herbal hop flavors. There is also a stinging alcohol flavor in the mouth with each sip. A mild bitterness lingers on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the skunky aromas that fade out are somewhat weird.

Pours a lively light lemon with a thin, but dense snowy head.

The smell is very inviting: It is a cidery scent, replete with apple, pear, hay, some faint bread. It invokes the memories of summer, fresh fruit and fresh air.

It tastes light, too - almost like drinking a Riesling. But that's a good thing, provided that you have the right food for it. It goes well with anything you'd use white wine for - cheese, fruit, delicately seasoned seafood. The alcohol content is well hidden, which makes it a very good session beer for long summer evenings - start with grilled scallops and vegetables, continue on with hard cheese and prosciutto, then finish with fresh fruit and brie. This beer can go along with all of these.

My first Bière de Garde. The corking on this one was a bit interesting, held down quite firmly by a staple-shaped "pressure cage." To avoid problems, I pulled out the corkscrew. Poured into a nonic pint glass at low altitude.

A: Pours a very light clear yellow color with a 3-finger stark white head. Lacing all over the glass, and a bit of head remained on the beer for the whole session. A notable amount of carbonation bubbles drift upward toward the top of the glass. Overall, quite a pretty beer.

S: The smell is light, but toasty malts and yeasty esters mingle here, bringing out dark fruits and hints of lemon zest.

T: Slightly sweet toasty malts up front followed by dark fruits and yeast. The finish is light lemon, with a noticeable amount of alcohol as it goes down, which detracts from the other flavors.

M: Medium-bodied, prickly and dry; cleanses the whole palate. Suits the flavors quite well.

D: This beer is quite subtle in terms of flavor, so it's pretty easy to drink despite the booziness. I would have it again, but I think I'd like to get more experience with the style before doing so.

poured from 750 into a tulip. Pours a nice medium/orange gold color. Same color as an aged sauternes

Very balanced aromas of funk, sour apples, some malts and a touch of blood oranges too

medium bodied with a real smooth feel. Balanced with round flavors of malts, some grains, sour apples, blood oranges and a bit of a tartness as well.

This is a wonderful biere de garde. Has a bit of sourness attached to it, but it would not be confused with a flemish red. This is a wonderful beer for those that like farmhouse styles

a half finger of bright white foam sits atop a crystal clear bright golden body. smells of apples and pears with a touch of cinnamon and clove. also shows some traces of bready yeast and hops. the taste is outstanding, tart crisp fruits lead the way to a well balanced bready malt body with traces of yeast and hops. mouthfeel is very sharp at first with a creamy feel to the body and a short crisp finish. as the beer warms the alochol comes out from hiding, but never dominates. this is an excellant beer and at $8 a bottle i will be buying more of these.

The gentlest pour ever gave way to a gargantuan head that left thick rings of lace. The beer is crystal clear golden in colour.

Smells invitingly sweet with lots of malt and undertones of biscuit, grass, and candied grain.

The taste is substantially different from what the smell would have you think. While all the flavours of the smell are there, limes, apples, yeast, notes of wheat, and a large dose of alcohol are also present. The tangy acidic flavours are nicely countered with a hop finish. Too pungent to be drank quickly.

Minimal carbonation makes it refreshing for a higher ABV. Soft and creamy on the palate.

Packs a lot more flavour than the the look or smell of it gives away. Tasty!

A: Beautifully lively carbonation, particularly transparent with a sort of typical light lager color. Sea foamy head of uniform size moderately small bubbles.
S: Malt and yeast very connected and hit you simultaneously. Grassy, and leaning toward vinegar. Acidic. Champagne
T: Similar to the smell but better. Less acidic, more like champagne. There's a funny nuttiness at the end, like a pinenut. Alcohol is well masked. It does take above 5% but not so much so. It's a fairly mild and delicate flavor, but quite nice. Light grassiness in the background. Edge of "sourness" but that's quite mild. Champagne of beers.
M: Semi soft liquid, mild sting.
O: Nice beer, nice balance. Champagne of beers.

Second try of this beer. Into the tulip, pours clear golden with a beautiful white three finger head that slowly fades leaving some droopy, sticky lacing and settles into a permanent thin white cap. Visible carbonation keeps this thin layer of foam going strong.

First thing I smell when I pop the bottle is some citrus zest. There's also some light toasty grains and cellar mustiness along with very mild noble hops.

At first this beer tastes just like a nice full lager, with that clean, light dusty, bread/wood flavor. Very mild fruitiness, apples and lemon, and some floral hops in the back. As it warms I start getting some spicy, peppery alcohol, as well as a more complex, nuttier malt profile. Very nice.

Remarkably smooth despite the very high carbonation. Not too prickly, not too much body despite the high alcohol. Well balanced.

Overall this grew on me. It's highly quaffable, but take your time and sip this one a bit, enjoy the changes as it warms up and the flavor profile opens. Almost too drinkable, but the 8.5% ABV does start making itself feel known after sneaking up at first.

Pours an amazing clear gold color w/ a big three finger head. The head is quickly down to one finger after a couple minutes. Excellent carbonation, and fantastic lacing on my snifter glass. The nose is spices, some yeast, malt, and slight funkiness. Very smooth, refreshing, and clean smelling. Taste is similar to the nose- nothing different here. This beer is super smooth, spicy and refreshing. I don't get any of the 8.5% ABV in the taste at all. This would be an incredible summer beer- if you don't mind the higher alcohol, and don't want a session brew. Overall, this is good- but maybe a hair short of great. Still, I would get this again. Cheers.

I'm still working through some notes with this one.

This is somehow both brilliant and pale, a medium yellow in color and obviously unfiltered, as there's both haze and sediment plentifully evident. A white cap forms nearly two fingers of height and proves sturdy. Lacing is left in soft patches and legs snaking down the glass.
From the aroma, I understand immediately that this is a Belgian style, as the clove, lightly and inoffensively dusty and light fruits/subtle bubble gum sweetness of the yeast mingle. There's a bit more to it as well, as something gently herbal and a bit more spiciness also come in.
Less of the character that told me this was a Belgian in the aroma is present in the flavor, as more of the underlying characteristics come out from underneath. The spiciness pulls through and alcohol creeps out a bit more. There's something like a gentle mix of spices in there as well, and a more complex sweetness than I realized initially also peeks through, particularly (along with pear and light fruits flesh) some vanilla and perhaps toffee. This really is more complex than I could have realized at first.
The mouthfeel is exceptionally smooth, riding off a rolling carbonation that isn't simply filler and building of a gently nipping crispness. This feel really pulls it all together.
This is still a fairly unfamiliar style to me, but I get what they're doing and this one does it very well.

750 mL bottle from Amanti Vino's Beer of the Month selections for October. It was allowed to warm a little before being poured into my Brooklyn Brewery tulip.

3 Monts pours a crystal clear goldenrod, with a buckshot of lemon shining through upon being held up to light. The fluffy white foam that sprung up after each pour always had good height and head retention. Lacing started out solid, and only got nicer with each subsequent pour. The nose is a little timid, but does feature a very nice, delicate balance between pale and stone fruits and peppery aromas. The flavor is a bit more robust, but still centers around that fruit-pepper dichotomy. There's a bit of honey that joins in with the apples and pears up front, and a subtle warming from the alcohol that comes in along with the spicy phenols. The mouthfeel is absolutely phenomenal. The body is surprisingly light given the solid malt presence, and the carbonation is expansive and active, Belgian at its finest. 3 Monts is a great beer and a very good Biere de Garde, one I'd be more than happy to have again.

Ah good beer, it's been too long. My first review in a long time. For the start of my time teaching and my one year anniversary back from Bulgaria I looked for something nice, and found it in the most random of places, a small store in the beer wasteland of Santee, SC. A pleasant surprise. Here goes.

A: The bottle was incredibly hard to get open. Inside the bottle a huge amount of yeast and sediment is visible. This will have to be a very careful pour for sure.
Poured from the 750 mL corked bottle into a tulip glass.
The beer is a bright yellow color with lots of sediment floating around. Head is 3 or so fingers, offwhite and sticks around a bit wile leaving clumps along the side of the glass. Overall a good looking beer, but the huge amount of sediment is a bit off.

S: Slightly spicy and herbal with a slight funkiness in the back. Yeastiness is definitely a highlight. Sourdoagh bread. Some citrus zest in there as well.

T: Very refreshing with loads of citrus and a subtle spiciness underneath. Slightly tart, but very light and surprisingly sweet but not too much so. Like a saison but without as much funk. Like a champagne, but not as winey. This is a fantastic drink.

D: Light and subtle. Has a bit of zest but not too much at all. Great.

O: This beer could go with anything. I enjoyed it by itself on a relaxing night in SC. Great way to get back into the swing of things. Very nice beer.
