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.
Rich and complex, this tour de force is a glorious blend of elegant Belgian- Style quadruple ale and authentic Belgian Kriek, it's malty depth and gentle sweetness enhanced by sparkling carbonation and a serendipitous tough of cherry.
Pouring a mysterious chestnut brown, Three Philosophers is the perfect beer for leisurely sipping and quiet contemplation.
The complexity of this beer make it a good candidate for aging gracefully, as spicy sherry and port notes should intensify.
