Three Philosophers is a remarkable limited edition strong ale brewed by Brewery Ommegang in response to a home brewer’s description of his dream beer. Realbeer.com, the internet’s largest beer website, hosted a contest called “Create a Great Beer.” Brewery Ommegang was chosen by Realbeer.com to brew the Belgian-style ale for the winning essayist. Noel Blake, a home brewer from Portland wrote the winning description for what his “dream beer” would be like.

Great one and slow to drink. It is very thick and, maybe it is a trippel but quite good in looks and taste, also in aroma.

Full of great flavor...a bit sweet, but I like that! Foamy head disappeared very quickly. Well balanced. Perfectly browned. I will buy this again!

jspencer78 (14) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Pours semitransparent reddish brown with a thin brown head that quickly dissipated. Strong fruit taste: cherry in particular of course but plum, figs etc. as well and a bit of alcohol. Fizzy carbonation and rather thin in the mouth. Not a bad beer but not a great one either.
