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.

Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a off-white head that left spotty lacing. Aroma was sweet with fruit, raisins, caramel, yeast and spices. Flavor was slightly sweet and lightly bitter with caramel, fruit, yeast, plums and had a soft and silky mouthfeel.

sebletitje (7120) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2011
bouteille;ambre, mousse beige Palais et arôme de sucre candi; raisins et prunes tout en gardant ce goût profond de fruits noirs, peut-être un peu de cassis aussi présent. Malt est légèrement grillé avec le sucre candi et un côté allant sur le caramel qui se ressent à l’arôme également. Sur la fin, je note un léger fini de massepain. Une bière qui reste surprenante et se laisse dégustée.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Pours to a hazy and deep chestnut colored body with a tall and mostly lasting off-white head. The aroma is sweet and caramelized with green raisins and white wine, a dash of butter, and subtle hay. The flavor is quite delicious. Candied pineapple, ginger, sweet caramel, deep earthy yeasts, and a nice grain-laden finish. The palate is sweet and yet still finishes clean. Medium bodied with a carbonated feel.

Hermod (3725) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle from Bierzwerg. Poured hazy dark orange color with a frothy nice looking, lacing head. Aroma is orange, yeast and spices. Flavor is caramel, orange and some fruitiness, slightly sweet. Medium carbonation. The alcohol is just slightly coming through in the finish. Really enjoyable, and incredibly easy to drink.

gunnar (5975) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2011
Shared bottle, thanks to Ivar Andrè for this one. Pours unclear golden with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet malty bubblegum, yeast. Taste is much the same, overall on the sweet side, fresh and inviting though. Medium bodied. Not bad.

abemorsten (3033) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2011
Shared bottle courtesy of gunnar. A tanned, frothy head about a finger thick, pungent with wooden aroma notes before it disappates from the murky orange body which has more spices and dried fruits to it. Syrupy texture and flavor, where the sweetness and the alcohol are the most prominent features. Carbonation is on the lively side. Medium body.
