Three Philosophers Belgian Style Blend - Quadruple
Brewery Ommegang – Cooperstown, NY
This Belgian Style Quadruple lists that it is 98% ale – 2% ale with cherries added - an authentic Kriek a cherry-lambic from Belgium. I did not read the bottle while tasting it, and would not guess there were any cherry flavors added.
Appearance – this beer poured out beautifully – nice and rich looking amber with a significant 1 to 2 inch head...impressive. Very clear, not cloudy in any way.
Scent – reminded me of caramel corn. Caramel, malt, raisins, dates, figs, brown sugar
Taste/Mouthfeel – fairly carbonated until it settles down awhile, but again the rich caramel tastes with the dried fruits and malt. The carbonation balances the sweet, making for a great mouthfeel and not an overpowering sweet taste.
I really really liked this beer. I look forward to trying this again in the future.
