4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bomber bottle drank in 2010 I believe: Huge thanks to Pat for this treat. After over a year in search of this elusive brew, my bros and I decided we had to slay it. Split this epic sea monster sour with Sean, James, and Vinny. Cork pops slow and soft, with gentle hiss of mist out of the top of the bottle. Immediate cedar scents float into the air, and upon pouring, the cedar blossoms with sour peach and apricot fruits, with hints of vanilla, oak, lemon zest, white grapes, grapefruit, white peaches, sharp funky cheese, barnyard, and soft notes of dry hops and fresh hay. Medium, slight, woody bodied with a stringently tight, tart, slick, ultimately sour palate. Finsihes with a dry, soft, airily smooth swallow. The peachiest tart beer I have had the pleasure to try. This is, undoubtedly, a beer geniunely worhty of its lofty reputation. Isabelle Proximus is definitely worth the effort of the hunt.Seek her out, and she shall not let ye down.

What can I say? Richard AKA IrishBoy hooked me up! Perpetual gratitude. This is truly an amazing beer. You know those moments when everyone is silenced and just smells the beer? This was one. Nobody wanted to finish it. Pours a golden color with a small white head. A powerful nose of sour woody notes with rich tartness, very akin to a great lambic. The flavor is just wonderful; rich tart fruit, woody, very acidic at times, aggressive, lemons, a full rich body, vanilla, more tannins. Amazing brew. Among my favorites.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle generously shared by Doug, thanks! Aroma is quite fruity, lots of lemon and grapefruit, grapes, touch of sour apple, lightly funky and sweaty, wheat, very complex. Pours mostly clear, straw color, minimal white head with a bit of lacing. Flavor follows the nose - pleasantly acidic, lots of lemon, some grapefruit, grapes, and apples. Funky and slightly sweaty, but the brett character isn’t overwhelming, wheat malt, some earthiness, wood, leather. Light body, medium-high carbonation. A complex and delicious brew.
