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.

Aroma is yeasty, earthy hops, banana, clove, very dry, barnyard, but also fruity. Appearance is dark amber, light tan head, hazy. Taste is earthy hops, very fruity, some banana, barnyard, dry, and a weird Quad thing happening at the end, like figs. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, dried fruit and dusty aftertaste. Overall, this is a very good representation of the style.

You’ll definitely like it if you’re into the 7/8% range of Belgians, though compared to others in the same range, I found the aftertaste on the palate a little too bitter and longlasting. Still very good.
