I decided to drink this brew again before rating it and I was not disappointed. While it was not as "hoppy" as I remembered, this is a great beer to share with friends new to the brand. Popping the cork, you could smell the sweetness of the cherries that makes your mouth water. Pouring it in the glass, it was very smooth, thick, and showed minimal carbonation. The head was a beautiful pale with just a slight rust coloring that makes you just want to 'taste this beer!"

I was a little shocked though by the sudden sweetness and it's consistently throughout. If you are looking for a true taste of hops, you might have to wait a while. Even chilled the Three Philosophers was thicker than I remembered but it is a brew to be savored, not slammed. All in all a really good brew.

Frothy light tan head over chestnut brown. Aroma is wonderfully complex, with dark fruit and a mild sour note. Berries and alcohol with a deep pull. Flavors mirror aromas, sweet and tangy and sour. Nutty and bready malt is noticeable as well. Each last sip is tangy stone fruit. Medium mouthfeel leaving a bit of a sour residue on my palate. Good carbonation, good froth retention, and good lacing. It's gorgeous to look at, it smells wonderful, and the flavors are well balanced. Ommegang does a great job with this style.
