Three Philosophers is a unique blend of a Belgian-style dark ale and Liefmans Kriek, an authentic cherry ale from Belgium. Cherry chestnut in color, it's opaque but not cloudy with full carbonation topped by a smooth, tan head. Flavors and aromas of roasted malt, molasses and brown sugar, dark fruits, brandied raisins and chocolate, Three Philosophers has notable sweetness with low hop bitterness. The mid-palate shows a soft malt center which gives way to a dry, warm, wine-like finish.
The complexity of this beer make it a good candidate for aging gracefully, as spicy sherry and port notes should intensify.
Created by blending a rich, malty, Belgian - style ale with authentic Kriek, a classic cherry - Lambic from Belgium, their Quadruple is cultured yet wild, curious yet wise.
