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 pour dark amber w/ stewed dark christmas cake fruits on the nose and through the palate, finishing sweetly caramel and blood orange. Overall, a classic in the style.

Xavalias (154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark hazy amber with big beige-yellow creamy, persisting head and some lacing. Aroma is spicy, yeasty and fruity with ripe fruits, tons of sweet dried plums, caramel, malts. Taste is sweet, with a light but very subdued bitterness. Very smooth on the palate. Very nice Belgian ale, perfectly balanced, a bit like a pale version of a dubbel.

Maakun (594) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2014
Amber with very small white head but a lot of bubbles. Sweet malts with big spices (koriander, cinnamon, nutmeg). Nice dried fruits and some apple, prunes and orange. Nice yeast profile and faint liquorice. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Decent stuff.

Alengrin (1743) - BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2014
Anniversary beer launched in 2009 with thick, creamy, yellowish white head and cloudy amber colour. Smoky aroma, caramel, meat, pear, pineapple, honey. Nutty and caramelly malt basis, clearly sweetened with extra caramel, light flowery hops in the finish. Enjoyable but like most of the La Trappe beers, clearly short of the world class one finds in the Belgian trappist brands, and I mean this objectively, without being chauvinist.

DWF. Kopper farge med hvit skum som faller samme. Mild Aroma malt gjær. Smak av gjær mal og karamell. Mild og fin. Jo mer jeg rater jo mer sjønner jeg at jeg ikke sjønner. Sjønner???

Finn (4210) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Gylden. Svakt uklar. Bra middels høyt skum som varer en stund. Aroma av frukt & krydder. Smaken er karamell - uten å bli for søt. Lite kullsyre. Smaken får et lite alkoholpreg etter hvert.

Een goed biertje. Ze hebben betere bieren bij La Trappe, maar dit was zeker niet slecht.

Giochaurand (43) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2014 330ml bottle. Dark wood amberish colour to it. Smells like caramel and peach. Makes love to your mouth and tongue in a lively and lovely threesome as soon as you pour it inside. As Ger puts it, it’s a beer sex symbol.

Bottle - hazy red with a big foamy beige head. Thin lacing. Aroma of dark fruits, molasses, yeast, coriander seeds and ripe banana. Taste is sweet and malty with peach and cherry. Fairly spicy and peppery with hints of cloves and quite yeasty. Medium body with a prickly carbonation.
