A: I actually grabbed this from my cellar expecting a tripel (I assumed "three" philosophers meant tripel), so I was surprised to pour a dark beer into my Tripel Karmeliet glass. Body is deep mahogany with one finger off white head. head disappears quickly but laces well.
S: A bit less traditional quad here. Not as meaty as its old world Belgian counterparts. Instead, its a bit medicinal and clove forward. Maybe it's the cherries that brings this out.
T: Most of the usual Quad prune and dark fruit flavors are quite muted. One again it's leafy and bright with a cherry a kreik cherry finish.
M: A bit smooth, almost no dryness at all. carbonation is well leveled.
Overall this is an interesting and tasty beer. One of my first from Ommegang.
