Poured from a 2005 750ml bottle into an Ommegang cervoise, the quad is a deep mahogany that has a bottled conditioned cloudiness, although I didn't purposely swirl the yeast. A vigorous pour produced a large tan head with medium bubbles, that quickly subsided to a 1 finger collar, leaving some thick, sticky lace. The aroma is very rich and complex, earthy and vinous and mainly sour cherries. The taste is sweet, rich malt, caramel, prunes and yeast, reminiscent of Gulden Drak, but with a very pleasant tartness from the Cherry lambic and brett. that really takes it to the next level, before fading to a boozy and slightly dry finish. The 3 Philosophers had a moderate mouthfeel and a great flavor profile that takes a while to unlock, but is a bit rich to drink more then a bottle or too of...that said, it is choice for enjoying with a robust cigar, such as a Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real # 2 Belicoso, which is suburb.
