A - Poured into a Chimay chalice. Color is predominately brown, with various strains of gold and ruby. Murky look to it, but with bright colors along the edges when held to light. Little to no lacing, but maintains a thin head that lasts for nearly the full glass.
S - Nice mixes, nothing stands out. Mostly what you might expect with a vague sweetness and a slightly funky yeasty smell. I'm looking for cherries here but not really encountering them.
T - Here is where the cherries show up, but not really so much in cherry flavor, as an up-front tartness. It's not strong, but it's definitely present, and gets rolled in with the sweet malts, a clearly Belgian-style yeast that has an ever-so-slightly sour note to it, and light bitterness.
M - Rich and medium-full bodied. The carbonation adds a lushness to it.
O - Very flavorful and enjoyable. Split this bomber with my wife and we both enjoyed it. We had it after dinner. I would probably recommend that you drink it before dinner so that you fully enjoy all of the rich characteristics and subtle flavors.

Sometimes with Ommegang, I don't know what to expect. White the 3 philosophers, I was thinking it'd be a bittery type of beer, but once I poured it, and saw a nice dark, caramel color, I knew it'd be different. It's sweet. Reminds me of amaretto, while my friends said it was like so co. Nice to drink of the bat, but gets heavy later on. I could see myself drinking this with a dessert, which I rarely do.
