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.

Very smooth beer with a strong lingering maltiness. More carbonation than I expected, which helps to balance the sweetness. Very good and unique beer.

12/17/2009 3:45:53 AM Bottle at The Half Pint, NYC. Nice dark red body with slight tan head. Nose of lots of fruits, malts, caramel. Taste also of caramel, bitter and fruits. Sweet, but not too much. But quite fruity (or bitter) to me. Enjoyable all the same.

브루어리 오메강 - 쓰리 필라소퍼스 9.7% ABV 오메강의 콰드루펠. 뉴욕주에 브루어리가 있지만 실제로 듀벨 소속의 벨기에 양조장으로 출발했다. 들큰하게 치솟는 알콜기에 설탕에 절인 과일같은 테일의 에일 꽤나 고급스럽고 고전적인 레이블 등으로 인해 맥주맛 좋다고 알려진 브루어리로, 크래프트 맥주를 고급 문화의 일부로 소비하는 계층에게 특히 사랑받는다. 레이트 비어 99점이지만 솔직히 그 정도 맛은 아니다. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

12 oz bottle from 2012. Shared with ebone1988. The pour is a dark ruby brown with a cap of light tan head and no lace. The aroma is surprisingly full of cherry. There is a little Belgian malt and a lot of cherry. I love how they mixed the Kriek here. The flavor is really, really malty. There is no Kriek present, the cherry all left. It's got a Belgian malt that forces it's way in with clove and a light yeastiness. The mouth feel is thinner than it looks with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly malty and Belgian finish. It started out so well, only to drop the ball. Damnit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared with koleminer20. 2012 vintage. Aroma is tart cherry, dry, yeast, caramel, decent. Appearance is red brown, light tan head. Taste is malt, caramel, light cherry, skins, dry. Mouthfeel is harsh, carbonation is high and unpleasant. Overall, so much potential gone.

tomekboniek (281) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 22, 2015
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.

cmacklin (472) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2015
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.

Wittales (733) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 13, 2015
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
