oversized wine glass
A- Slightly hazy amber brown with a noticeable amount of bubbles. Poured a finger high cream colored head that reduced to a complete covering of the top of the glass, lacing covered the whole glass. As I am a slow drinker the sides were covered. Very good looking color and head.
S- Sweet malts, mixture of fruits like white grape, sour apple, yeast, no real noticeable hoppiness. Smell reminds me more of a summer type beer, I find it very nice.
T- Much like the nose, but more of a wine like sweetness from the fruits, good balance and flavor. I am not finding all these dark fruits, maybe because ive been hitting the stouts more so I am going off of those. Has a slight spice in the finish that fades relatively quick.
M- A medium to full body that I found to be slightly heavier than what the sweetness would present. Lots of carbonation that actually went well with the fruitiness. Has a slickness that makes it go down easy.
O- I find this a pretty good tasting brew, lots of flavor, easy on the nose. Very good mouthfeel that makes it pretty easy to drink. I will buy this one again at some point, even tho it is not my normal style.

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.
