a - first time getting this in the 12 oz four pack, sorta forgot about the sediment, whoops... still looks fantastic, bright crimson, nice clarity and an off-white head that holds throughout
s - cherries, dates, roasty malts, subtle alcohol burn, sweet but subtle... very inviting
t - really just a fantastic beer, all the wonderful complexities of the best Belgian quad - dark chocolate, dark malts, toffee/caramel - with the lively fruit and tartness of a Belgian kriek sprinkled on top - it's amazing the amount of character that the lambic offers to the beer at only a 2% blend
m - velvet, thick and cloying and it allows for the cherry finish to linger, I love it
o - this beer is solely responsible for my love of Belgian style beers, it introduced me to a style that now represents a large portion of my beer budget and I'm just as impressed by it today

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!
