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.

On tap at Bulldog NE. Belgian snifter glass. Beautiful amber color with a healthy white head. Honestly really appealing to the eye. Smell is floral and a little candy. Almost a tropical fruit quality too. Taste is mostly malty sweet with a rich, brown sugar aftertaste. Maybe a hint of hops as a form of balance. An easy to drink beer that hides its potency well. Really solid Belgian ale. I’ll definitely seek this out again.

Pour a hazy amber topped by about a finger of lightly tanned fizzy head showing good retenttion and lacing properties. The nose is fruity with banana and muskmelon. Some earthy add depth and some sweetness is spotted in the back, perhaps due to the added syrup. The taste is somewhat fruity at first. As it the melon clears, sweet toasted malts appear and expand into what will become the lingering warm finish. The brew is full-bodied, hold decent carbonation and sports a nice sourness. Cheers!

androman (880) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015
33cl bottle at home from Mitra, Maarssen. Body is fizzy, clear to opalescent, amber, head is medium, tan, fizzy, average lasting, no lacing. Nose is dried fruits, flavor is caramel, herbs, spices, liqueurish, wineish, raisin. Medium to heavy sweet, light bitter, light sour. Finish is long lasting fruity medium sweet, light hoppy bitter, medium alcohol warmth. Medium to full body, sticky texture, lively carbonation. Light dessert beer, not too easy, too much alcohol in the flavor for ABV 7.5, interesting though.

Pours a hazy golden with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of bananas, light spices and sugar. Taste is of bananas, caramel and moderately bitter. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel a little fluffy. Overall a nice belgian ale, glad to see that in our grocery stores!

lesifflebiere (1457) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2015
Liquide cuivré orangé, avec une petite mousse couleur crème ; le nez est fruité, abricots et prunes, avec du sucre cuit en arrière-plan. La bouche est charmante, plus houblonnée que prévue mais le fruité domine toujours facilement (surtout les prunes). On n’est pas loin d’une dubbel légère. Elle est également moins sucrée qu’anticipé, ce qui est apprécié. Une très bonne bière, manque un peu de richesse peut-être, mais elle gagne en buvabilité.

bkurtz (996) - PERU - APR 28, 2015
Bottle - Pours a hazy amber with a fairly large, rocky, lasting head. Sweet malt and caramel aromas, nice. Rich, well balanced malt flavors. Well made, but not my favorite style.

Bon produit dans l’ensemble... Les levures sont très présentes et particulières en fait. Je sens aussi la pore et les biscuits. J’ai bien aimé!
