Three Philosophers

Today's beer more than makes up for anything that's been lacking in any beer lately. It was part of a gift-pack that my brother-in-law got me for Christmas. I just haven't had a chance to try it until now.

Three Philosophers from Brewery Ommegang is a wonderful marriage of a thick malty quadrupel and just enough of a kriek (cherry lambic) to balance it out without putting any one flavor over the top. Every sip is a mouthful. This stuff puts anything watery to shame. If only all beer were this fulfilling.

This is definitely something I'd drink again. No contest.

I don't think so. I'll have to go find a picture and if not I'll try to hunt some down... not today though. Maybe later.

Sounds like a lot of fruit flavors in that bottle... Will have to try. BTW, had a nice ale the other day, tasted a little "young" but was quite refreshing: Loose Cannon.
