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.

Gangstergafje (98) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2015
Beautiful orange red color. Nice layer of foam. Nice aroma. Incredible strong taste. Delicious beer, nice fizzy feeling. The gas tingles your mouth. And it has that nice La Trappe taste.

A very heavy beer. It has a grape flavor associated with it that makes it seem like a wine. Not a fan.

Butelka, warka do 06-2016. piana dosc wysoka i poczatkowo ladna, pozniej sie szybko dosc redukuje, Kolor miedziany, mocna opalizacja. Aromaty owocow ciemnych, stosunkowo malo drozdzowo, slody dosc ziemiste, troche karmelu... podstawowa roznica w stosunku do blonde to owocowosc w strone wisni, sliwek, jablek zamiast brzoskwini, banana. W zapachu to takie skrzyzowanie blonde i dubla. Smak jeszcze bardziej owocowy niz aromat, troche przypraw, drozdzy belgijskich, karmelu. rownowaga w strone slodyczy, choc i nutki kwaskowate sie pojawiaja. czuc tez goryczke, wyzsza niz w blonde, trawiasta. alkohol dobrze schowany. w ustach umiarkowanie pelne, zywe wysycenie, odczuwalne na jezyku. bardzo dobre piwo.

0.33l bottle. Amber color with white head. Aroma is caramel, fruits, spices and yeast. Taste is sweet with caramel, herbal notes and spices. Full body and soft to average carbonation. Overall it’s nice and tasty beer.

ManvsCity (183) - Redmond, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle - corked and caged. Lightly carbonated amber body with quickly disappearing white head. Faint caramel and stone fruit aroma. Dry, slightly sour, oak overshadowing most other flavors. Lots of oak tannins in the finish. Would dump it, except that it cost a lot of $$. Expected a better tasting Belgian ale with more character.

Heerlijk amberkleurig bier vol van smaak en een lekkere afdronk. Zoet en vol van smaak.
