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.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2011
Cloudy amber with a low and fragmented head. Fruity aroma with further presence of yeast. The flavour is primarily sweet with notes of spices. Quickly forgotten.

Somewhat watery and disappointing, coming from this brewery. Expected too much, I reckon.

Ernesto987 (4548) - Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 Very Carmelly nose, heavy syrupy consistency and prominent belgian yeasts, some bitterness in finish. Not an easy drinker cause of those weird thick syrups.

Malty and some caramel. This great looking beer is highly enjoyable and one of the best dutch beers you’ll probably find from the Netherlands.

PatBateman81 (178) - Caserta, ITALY - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle 33 cl bought @ Bir&Fud (Rome, Italy). A great appearance characterized by an intense cloudy structure from orange to brown. Flat head, anyway, just an half finger with no persistence at all. Yeasty and bready aroma, some spices, orange and fruit, floral and dried wheat, but all notes are weak in general. It has a medium body and high carbonation; the taste is annoyingly like ALL the La Trappe line: something fruity, breadish, but totally ordinary in malt and caramel feeling. Finish is slowly harsh, and nothing more. Industrial Trappists strikes back.

33cl Bottle from Bierzwerg. Appearance is reddish-brown color, slight off-white head with decent lacing. Aroma is malty with caramel as the dominant note along with some bread and fruit. Taste is similar with the caramel malts standing out complimented by the bread and some spice. Licorice and a leathery yeast hints also noticeable. Palate is medium-bodied, slick texture, fizzy, slight hard carbonation, and a mild bitter finish.

Bottle. What a nice surprise to stumble across this one, hadn’t even heard of its release. Nose is full of banana and clove, big yeast component. Dark orange pour with heavy mahogany edges and a much lighter creamy head. Taste is straight-up Weizenbock with less grapish malt but intensified alcohol presence. Dryish with a small caramel base and a significant sack of dried and candied fruits. Warms with a little earthy grit, full body doesn’t quite have the grace I was hoping for, but still makes for a nice sipper.

Bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Thanks sayravai. Originally rated on 5.12.2009. Pretty generic dark Belgian ale, nothing special here. Nice finish.
