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.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown with beige head.Aroma of horse blanked, toasted grain with a touch of dark fruit. Flavor is very much the same with a light sweetness, pepper with a nice alcohol spiciness. Mouth feel is medium body with soft fizzy carbonation. Tasty brew.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2010
Bottle. Fogged copper, level beige collar going nowhere. Marmalade, apple strudel, peppery spice aroma with the bits in; fruit loaf, liquorice and banana cake without. Bit of a weizenbock-type effort; lemon zest, orange rind and pepper finishing on quite a hot alcohol note. Hardly a Trappist classic but decent, which is a relief after the abysmal ’Puur’.

psilosophy (513) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - OCT 30, 2010
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur miel sombre, trouble, mousse assez faible, ne tient pas longtemps. Des arômes assez fleuris et une pointe de réglisse. Très raffinée, douce au palais, bonne longueur. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2010
Dark brown-red colored with hazy appearance. Little yellow head. Rich licoricy aroma with nice yeastiness, reminds me of some Gouden Carolus products. Medium bodied. Flavor is more dry with same licorice still dominating, some grassy and plummy note here too. Aftertaste is yeasty-dry, good one indeed.

Quack-Duck (8159) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2010
bottle, thanks to Bierkoning! Amber colour, large off-white head. Malty, honey, pleasantly fruity (tropical fruity and raisins), as well as caramel and atiny touch of honeycomb-chocolate.

rougeau13 (2034) - Richmond, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Deep amber, hazy with a small white head. Taste is sweet malt and caramel with a touch of fruit sweetness. Aroma is fruity, soapy and malty, but not very strong. Nothing is overdone here, yet it has a very full flavor and feel. Very nicely balanced. This beer is very smooth, and I can imagine drinking a bunch of them before I even realized it. Good stuff.

trevman7 (58) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Bottle in trappist glass. Aroma was a damp dough and honey with a hint of citrus interesting but not all too pleasing. Brownish orange in appearance with a tiny tan head. Taste was a bready honey-sweet. Thick and oily mouthfeel. Short finish with lingering citrus.

borisz (376) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2010
Pours a deep, rich cheddar orange with a nice off-white head. Aroma is orange, peach, sweet yeast, and a touch of raisin/plumb. Flavor is a doughy sweet raisin with a finish of peach and orange peel. Zesty, tingly mouthfeel that deceives the drinker into thinking the beer is thinner bodied than it is really. Finish seems to resonate with apple juice aged in the dank, musty cellar located under the brewery. A nice beer.

rosenbergh (7416) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2010
330 ml bottle. From Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
Parallel tasting with La Trappe Blond/Dubbel/Isid’Or/Quadrupel.

Hazy reddish brown colour with small dense creamy off-white head. Aroma: Mild berries, sugar, honey (melon?). Flavour: Harsh alcohol, solvent, unpleasant jumpiness. Straight forward for Trappist.

Fin (7698) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle from a pub in Brugge (forgot to write down the name but think it was Bierboom) consumed 01.10.10. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Nicely soft in the motuh. This is fruity and sweet to start with and a bit of coriander? probably wrong with that last shout but that’s what I got. Bit dry towards the end. A6 A3 T7 P3 Ov13 3.2
