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.

Caramel, citrus, bloemig. Een heel goed gelukt bier met nét genoeg bite. Fruitig fris en toch stevig en niet te zoet. Erg lekker. Zeker een aanrader

MarkoNm (442) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUN 24, 2014
Pours a slighty hazy amber color, topped with a very decent yellowish head and nice retention. Lot’s of bubbles. Malty aroma, some spices, some yeast smell as well. Not completely pleasant. Strong taste, starts slightly fruity, followed by very strong bitterness, some soury and metal feel aslo present. Spicy aftertaste. Not my favourite.
