look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Three Philosophers Belgian-style blend of 98% ale and 2% ale with cherries added (said to be Leifmans Kriek on the bottle). Pours an opaque almond brown with an initial 2 finger soapy off-white head that dissipates quickly to a ring around the tulip.

Plum, rum-soaked raisin, sweet bread and just a hint of cherry in the nose.

Much more cherry forward in the taste, although it's not the dominant note. Slightly tart cherries intermingle with the plum, raisin and fig, some sweet and bready malt, a little brown sugar and caramel, some earthiness and just a touch of vinegar. The Kriek really sets this off and makes it stand out among the typical quad. Really delicious stuff.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, almost no alcohol noticeable, dry finish.

Quads and BSDA's are more and more becoming one of my favorite styles (and in fact I used to not care for them at all), and this one definitely stands out as one of my favorites. A really solid quad with the added awesomeness of some Kriek blended in. While a little on the pricey side, I would still buy this again.
