Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a Three Philosophers wine-style glass.
A- Pours a reddish light brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains well before meandering down to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and sporadic bubbly surface foam. Sudsy, not-so-resilient lacing.
S- Lots of dark fruit notes including black cherry, raisin and fig. Quite sweet with a noticeable booze fume.
T- More dark fruit plus some Belgian candi sugar. Has a dryness that bounces off the fruity sweetness to make for a great duality. There's that booze again making itself known but not so much that it spoils the party.
M- As said before, dry with medium carbonation and a fullish body.
O- Though I mention the alcohol presence quite a bit in this review, it really isn't so detrimental since that 2% blend of lambic ups the sweetness which rounds everything out. A great quad from a great brewery.

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.
