But it sure feels like one...

Why is "miesiącem" in Inst. and not Gen. I mean, since it's NIE jest, or it's always Inst. form follwed after Być?

(Nie) jest + kim/czym? - miesiącem

In other words your second idea is better. With or without nie, mieciącem is in Inst. Nie changes case when sentence has ma +kogo/co?, nie ma + kogo/czego?.
