COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle, from Hydes, as a birthday gift. Make (or get the Missus to make) a rhubarb, almond and polenta cake. Eat this, with this beer as an accompaniment. You can thank me later...

It's a nice beer. Don't have any strong feelings either way. I had no problems drinking a glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ljthiessen (354) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle. Hazy orange-brown pour with a medium beige head, settling to a nice creamy coating. Enticing, complex aromas of candied cherries, brown sugar, raisins, a little citrus and yeast. Less cherry notes in the flavour, but some nice dark fruit, along with light citrus. A bit light for a quad, with a subtle sourness and a very dry finish. Very nice and a bit different for the style.

Dark reddish brown with long lasting tan head. Let it warm up to release even more flavors of this complex beer. My first quad so maybe it’s expected that I didn’t particularly care for it. Kinda tastes like cherry cough syrup.

radio_nowhere (792) - Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2014
Draft at Roasthouse Pub in Frederick, MD. Served in a snifter glass, dirty amber-brown color with some white head. Aroma of brown sugar, dark fruit (raisins, plums, figs), faint cherry and spices. Taste brings out caramel and faint sour fruitiness. Medium-heavy body, low-moderate carbonation, sticky with slight warming finish. Pretty tasty balanced quad, despite my description was not a Belgian sweet bomb at all.

Bue en bouteille 75cl. Arômes de prune et de fruits rouges. Acidité légère bien compensée par le côté belge quadruple. Du lourd.
