A well crafted Belgian ale is a thing of beauty. Rich, complex, fruity but dry. And this Belgian style quad by Brewery Ommegang is all that and more.
They start out with the Three Philosophers which is already a wonderful beer by itself with silky caramel toasty notes, with hints of banana and clove on the back. Then they add blueberries and coffee which seem like an odd combination until you sip this wonderful brew. The blueberry is subtle adding a touch of sweetness at the end. The coffee adds a level of toasty warmth to the aroma and flavor. This is a beer best paired with good music and quiet reflection.
