4.2/5 rDev +1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Color tied between a light murky brown and bright amber. Head is rich, micro carbonated bubbles, creamy.
S: Red candy licorice, strawberry/banana yeast reminds me of creamy pudding, hints of musky raw hide.
T/M: Ultra sweet for a Belgian, heavy body feel like syrup. Raw hide comes out in the end. Soapy, estery yeast dominates. Tons of complex flavors. Slightly bitter like a champagne , lacks an expected boozy touch.
O: An incredibly smooth QUAD that keeps me coming back for more! I love the Lambic aspect to put the complexity over the top. A must try.
Serving type: on-tap

5/5 rDev +20.8%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Appearance: Carmine/bole body with a pearl/eggshell head.
Aroma: Persimmons, plums, blackcurrants, cherries, grapes, and a slight orange 'musk' with notes of spicy, herbal yeast.
Taste: All of the fruits in the aroma, but with a 'burnt' characteristic - all with the classic alcohol presence of a Quad.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, bold, flavorful; classic Quadrupel.
Overall: My first from Brewery Ommegang, and it did not disappoint whatsoever. I highly recommend 'Three Philosophers' for those who are already fans of Quads and for those who would like to get into Quads. Cheers!
Serving type: bottle
