ST SYLVESTRE SAYS…
A wonderful return to nature, with a flavour of yesteryear, this is a beer that is drawn from wooden barrels to fill so many mugs in our Flemish bars !
Brewed by infusion with strong and hearty Flemish hops, then fermented using top yeasts, 3 Monts is perfectly balanced between malt aroma, fruity flavours and bitterness. The head is generous, dense and long-lasting.
The best way to taste the 3 Monts beer is in a cool cellar (like the ones in our Flemish houses, which are between 8 and 12°C) !
Available in 750 ml bottles corked and stamped
Smells of wheat and similar to a Belgian beer style, full frothy head with long staying power, the colour is a light golden, fizzy crisp Lager looking beer. The taste is light in flavour which belies its 8.5% strength, this has a real good beer session flavour, something continental and different.
Only disappointment was the cork was more like a wine bottle cork and not a champagne cork, so you had to use the corkscrew to get at your beer, still with a satisfying pop but not as flash as doing it by hand. Label on neck is 3D by design which gives it a rather unique eye catching design.
