Poured from a 750ml corked bottle. 2006 edition.
A - Hazy copper, similar to apple cider. Large head that leaves a lot of lacing.
S - Some sweetness with a little alcohol coming across.
T - Good, but maybe a little too much alcohol taste. There's a nice dry, sweet finish, no doubt from the cherry lambic that's been added to it.
M - Fairly smooth, although the alcohol comes across here again and hurts it, IMO.
D - Very drinkable for something that is almost 10% ABV, but I know of other beers near the same content that are much more drinkable than this.
Overall it's a very good brew, I'm not disappointed but I don't know if I'd pick this up again. It was good, just nothing that overly impressed me. It pretty much tastes exactly like it should, like a belgian that had some cherry lambic added to it. I think I'd be more happy to just have the quadruple part of the beer and skip the cherry lambic. Might be something good to serve to someone who doesn't really like beer who usually sticks to wines or sweeter drinks.

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.
