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.

TET (2104) - FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
Dark brown beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma is full of dark fruits, spicyness and some roastiness. Taste is also dark fruity, some roastiness, too simple. Medium bodied, balanced carbonation, nice to drink. Overally, flavour is too simple and only dark fruits are found. Balanced, but uninspirated, trappist’s glamour is missing.

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 (4625) - 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.
