THE ALE: This smooth ale tastes citrusy with yeasty notes and a hint of peppery spice. Its dry finish and mild carbonation make it perfect for pairing with grilled chicken, rich fish dishes, and cheeses like camembert and brie. THE STORY: Philosophizer was a common term used to describe Del. He often came up with the perfect solution to a complex problem while drinking a beer and watching the sunset. Donít be surprised when you enter into deep philosophical debates after opening a Philosophizer. Just pop one open, pour, sip, and ponder.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Pours a cloudy orange color with a tall white head. Those nose has a pronounced spiciness to it, mostly clove and coriander, with a bit of white pepper. Some pears, apples, and banana give some fruitiness. Lots of sugary sweetness, too. The flavor is quite sweet and sugary with a hint of banana, apple, and pear. A light peppery quality, some spice, and bready malt. A little disjointed/all over the place, but not bad.

bhensonb (14162) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 18, 2014
750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy gold with a large frothy white head. Aroma is spicy, grassy, citrus, earthy. Tickles the nostrils. Med body or better. Hits like a tripel, but ... Hmm.... Itís a spicy, earthy tripel sort of thing. Itís Belgian allover. Iím not sure this fits the alleged style, but itís very tasty stuff. Finishing like Grains of Paradise. And a sort of apple fruit ester. This is very unusual? Good tho!

onceblind (7472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Hazy amber with a thin foamy white head. The aroma is a bit faint but smells like dry caramel malt and light doughy esters. The flavor is estery and mild with some pale sweet amberish malts and a light leafy flavor and bitterness, with a light eccentric estery finish. A bit plain but not bad.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle:   Batch 001, Bottle #1748.   Dark straw, thick and hazy, large sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Somewhat of a medicinal floral nose, a little barnish, musty, with some yeasty/bready notes.   That medicinal floral aspect comes out more on the tongue.   Slightly soapy, remains a bit barnish, musty as well as yeasty/bready.   Not as nice as the nose suggested.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Soft finish, remains bready/yeasty.   Tiz okay, spiciness comes out after the finish, but its muted... maybe a little corriander like spices.   Thanks for the chance at this brewery Bill!
