Lost Abbey Isabelle Proximus
Thanks to a wonderful donation by Al’s of Hampden to Alex’s Lemonade Stand at the Pliny the Younger event at Monk’s Cafe in Philadelphia, our table (including Al) was provided the last bottle of Lost Abbey Isabelle Proximus. The beer pours a golden yellow color with no head at all, possibly due to the aging of the beer. The aroma consists of vinegar, grass, sour apple, raspberry and yeast. The raspberry in the aroma became more prevalent as the beer warmed. The taste is funky and sour with some sour apple, raspberry, orange, lemon, and a sweetening vanilla finish from the barrels. The alcohol content is 7.0% ABV. The Isabelle Proximus was an amazing beer with a great funky flavor. I enjoyed have the earthy grass flavors danced with the sour fruits on the tongue, and the raspberry flavor made me want more of this beer.
