COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three Philosophers is a unique blend of a Belgian-style dark ale and Liefmans Kriek, an authentic cherry ale from Belgium. Cherry chestnut in color, its opaque but not cloudy with full carbonation topped by a smooth, tan head. Flavors and aromas of roasted malt, molasses and brown sugar, dark fruits, brandied raisins and chocolate, Three Philosophers has notable sweetness with low hop bitterness. The mid-palate shows a soft malt center which gives way to a dry, warm, wine-like finish.

Pours a deep dark amber with a creamy beige head. Smell of sweet cherry and raisin. Taste or cherry, raisin and nuts. Slight tart and boost finish. Interesting blend and strange but decent beer.

Ommegang doesnt do a lot of things wrong. Definitely strong but bittersweet on the finish. Well balanced. Reviewed - A Brew With You, Ep. 38

En bouche, bonne effervescence, belle texture, notes de fruits, dattes, cassonnade et des cerises qui entourent le tout. Cest une grosse bire mais elle se boit trs bien.

Frudel (236) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2017
Amberish cloudy liquid, dissipating head that is only letting a ring around the glass. Nose is Belgian yeast without doubt, dark sugar, small acidity, spices. Taste is ripped bananas, dark dried fruits, lots of residual sugar, subtle tartness, caramel, toffee. Full body, warmth alcohol feeling in the throat. Sublime!

shawnmurphy (262) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - APR 22, 2017
Large caged and corked bottled pours slightly cloudy amber-ruby with tan head and lacing. Aroma: dark brown bread, raisins, prune juice, cherry juice. Flavor: caramelized brown sugar, figs, dates, prunes, black pepper, sour cherry, cloves, cinnamon, plums, chocolate, nuts. Mouthfeel: medium- to full-bodied, rich, soft on tongue, yet a bit too dry from the spices. Warm alcohol finish. A sipper, for sure.

Korcz (3134) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 14, 2017
Solidny quadrupel (choć daleko mu do klasy chociażby Struise) z dość niskim ciałem, idący w karmel i ciemne owoce, z delikatnie wiśniowo kwaskowatym finiszem. Przyjemne piwo.

ciocanelu (2222) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 14, 2017
Dark amber color with beige head. Aroma is quite boozy with sugar coated raisins. Taste starts sweet and fruity with raisins and dried berries. Finish has some cardboard and rag notes but not too intense. Medium body and carbonation. Overall its a decent beer but it has its flaws.

kapusil (1393) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 13, 2017
0.355l bottle. Slightly hazy very dark orange body with a beige head. Aroma of dark sugar syrup, orange zest, nutmeg, toast, cherries and a hint of booze. Taste of chocolate, dark sugar, orange peel, plums, toast, brandy and floral hops. The alcohol is quite obvious, but doesnt ruin the sensation. Very nice beer.

Butelka w Chmielarni na Marszałkowskiej. Aromat suszonych owocw, melasy. Smak słodki, sporo tutaj karmelu, toffee, suszonych owocw. Trochę brakuje ciała.

opalescent reddish-brown colour, one inch creamy beige-ish head; aroma of dried cherry, cherry, liqueur, some dark chocolate, maybe anise and biscuit notes; taste is the same with burnt bittery plum jam, herbal liqueur and hoppy bittery notes, as well as spicy alcohol; lovely quadrupel
