4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Butelka. Barwa brunatna, ciemno bursztynowa, mętna. Piana lekko beżowa, gruba, szybko znika. Aromat intensywny dojrzałych owoców (wiśni, jabłek, winogrona), suszonych (śliwki), oraz dodatkowo aromat kwaśny pochodzący z dodatku kriek’a. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie bogactwo. Goryczka niezalegająca, kwaskowa. Wysycenie wysokie. Piwo jest pełne, bardzo treściwe, tekstura kremowa. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy, deep ruby brown with a large, frothy, long lasting, tan head that laces. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, overripe fruit and yeast. Sweet fruity flavour of dried fruit, cherries, caramel malt, yeast, wood and alcohol with a dry, slightly acidic finish. Medium to full body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Complex, very nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance as clear sediment reddish brown with diminishing creamy beige 1/2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are cherry, brown sugar, alcohol and rich beady, sweet malts. Taste are cherry blast upfront gives way to Hawaiian bread sweetness mid sip. Toffee, Caramel with warming slight Vicks 44 finish. Palate was full chewy body with smooth creamy CO2, then an Elagant rich balanced finish. Overall a wonderful Quad/Kriek blend, try it. Warms up smoother.

Pretty awful. It had a weird taste to it. Had to try it once, but never again. It's not as bad as some, but not good.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Originally rated on 1/10/08. "This is my second try at 3 philosophers, the first time i got a bad bottle and rated it a 2.9. Today i decided to give it another spin. When poured It was a nice dark reddish-brown, with lots of yeast floaters, looks pretty. Not much aroma to speak of, flavors of cherries, and chocolate, rather malty. Good mouthfeel, alcohol present but not overwhelming like last time. Much better the second time around.

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.
