COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after brother Isidorus, Koningshoeven Abbey’s first brewer. Brewed to mark the occasion of the Trappist brewery’s 125th anniversary in 2009, Isid’or was so well received that it earned itself a permanent place in La Trappe’s line-up. Unfiltered, slightly sweet amber ale with a hint of caramel, which continues to ferment after bottling and has a rich, slightly bitter flavour, and a fruity aftertaste. Wheat & barley malts, Perle hop.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown producing a medium offwhite head. Aroma is malty and light fruity. Candy and hints of banana-esters. Taste is light sweet. Malts and caramel. Hints of grass and fruity yeast notes in the aftertaste. Quite dry finish.

dandeman (616) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
Une levure très fruitée se dégage du premier nez. des notes de banane, de gomme balloune, de clou de girofle, de vanille. Superbe complexité. Également, de légères notes de pain s’immiscent en arrière plan. Une belle mousse effervescente vient couronner un liquide ambré légèrement voilé. La mousse s’attarde et persiste malgré son effervescence. L’attaque touche à tous les aspects du gustatif; autant l’acidité de la levure lui confère un caractère puissant, autant la délicatesse des fruits élargit sa palette de saveurs. Son effervescence active ajoute à son houblonnage discrètement mentholé et herbacé. La palette est très large. On y perçoit de la banane, du bonbon, des fruits tropicaux, du clou de girofle, de la gomme balloune, des herbes et de la menthe. Cette bière évolue à tous les niveaux. Dans la pure tradition du brassage trappiste.

electrotype (320) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2015
Le genre de bière qui résume parfaitement "une bière belge classique". Elle n’a rien de vraiment particulier, ni du côté positif que du négatif. Elle ne se retrouvera surement pas dans les annales, mais se laisse boire bien. Un peu trop sucrée peut-être, ses notes d’épices, quoique discrètes, sont tout de même appréciées.

HammerTroll (700) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 31, 2015
Cloudy mahogany, firm, medium sized tan head. Aroma is yeast, banana and other fruit. Taste is sweet with sour finish, also fruity and yeasty. Medium body, lively carbonation. Better than expected.
