Poured into my Ommegang chalice a dull medium golden with a nicely formed white one finger crown that held well atop.Aromas are lightly spiced with a big dose of pilsner malt,a bit of drunken fruit as well.Flavors are again lightly spiced with the pilsner malt being the backbone of the flavors,a bit of drunken fruit lingers.Not overly complex but it's food friendlyo the hilt.I liked the "basic" 3 Monts a little better I think.
8.3% ABV. per bottle label.

750mL (code 11 20) into a Hennepin glass. Pours a clear honey amber w/ a thick fluffy white head that leaves big sticky clumps of lace on the glass. Not nearly the same carbonation level as the regular 3 Monts.

Aroma is a combination of wet hay, spices and fruits. Similar to a saison. Yeast leads the way.

Taste is spicy, fruity malt and Belgian yeast. Apples and pears, with a mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with a clean dry finish.

Overall a really nice smooth Bière de Garde. Aside from less carbonation, not vastly different from the golden ale version.

Wonderful clear golden color with a very faint haze. The head is very fluffy and settles within two minutes.

There is a pungent fruity smell arising from the yeast as well as some alcohol.

Tastes very yeasty, specifically the almost nuttyness and alcohol. The sweetness from the malt is a bit overpowered by the yeast but it is still a decent flavor. Hops are very week, which is good for me.

Feels like an average beer, very wet. But the yeast and alcohol create an interesting effect; if you rub your tongue againt the roof of your mouth it feels like wet paper.

750ml bottle, 10% biere ambrée

poured into a tulip. The color is a beautiful amber, very clear, lots of carbonation, fine bubbles. Big thick white foam on top. It stick on the glass on every sip.

smell is malty, herbal, some alcohol,

taste is good, its a strong amber, mix of malt, herbal flavours, alcohol, fruits, evything combined makes a fine brew. Delicate and strong.

mouthfeel is a bit liquorous, fine carbonation, finish is a bit dry.medium body.

its a fine brew, nicely balanced, a 10% beer wich it does not feel too strong.

B+

750ml into a tulip. Pours a crystal clear wonderful amber copper, towering dense yellowish cream colored head retains nicely, excellent lacing.

The aroma is a complex triptych of fruits, floral notes and spices atop a yeasty base. No low notes. Clean, upbeat.

The taste, while all the scent promised is delivered, is muted. No personality. Fails to be of strong character, all edges are rounded. Slightly dry finish, tiny bitter, the aftertaste disappears quickly. Light to medium bodied lively mouthfeel.
