Brewery Ommegang is about as Belgian as a brewery can get without actually being in Belgium. Not only do they make a wide range of well-executed Belgian style beers, their parent company is Duvel-Moortgat, makers of the legendary Duvel Golden Ale. Today we’re featuring two of my absolute favorites from Ommegang, Rosetta and Three Philosophers.
If there is a beer that could change your mind on sour beers or fruit beers, Rosetta may be it. Perfectly balanced between aged and new Flemish Brown Ale and blended with the sweetness of the cherries it was aged on for at least three years. It’s a beautiful beer that will pair well with soft cheeses like Brie or Triple Cream.
With all of the beer options out there, it’s easy to forget about beers that are still just as good as the first time you had them. This is your reminder that Three Philosophers is still that awesome. A big, bold (9.7% ABV) Belgian-style Quad that also blends in 2% of Leifmans Kriek for a refined complexity. Tasting notes are figs, brandied cherries and molasses, making for a wonderful pairing with rich and hearty meals like stew and big stinky cheeses.
