3.93/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Copper/rust brown/red body. Kind of sweet tea colored. Tan lingering head with moderate looking carbonation.

S: Mildly sweet but kind of faint. Wine-like smell. The alcohol is apparent.

T: Sour up front with sweet dark cherries. Slight spices, and the alcohol comes through heavily. Heavily roasted malt and some fruity hops come out. Yeasty.

M: Heavy and warming. A cold day kind of body. Just enough carbonation to stay interesting.

O: A great beer for sure. It's unique and unbalanced. Different from any other quad I've ever had...but quads are all pretty different.

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.
