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.

Medium-bodied, with citrusy banana leaf notes dominating a creamy malt body with bread notes, finishing with clovey spice through the medium length.

GTAEgeek (1505) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2011
750 mL bottle aged for 15 months. Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. The aroma is tangerines, corriander, cloves, and heavy,dark bread yeast. The flavor is very sweet and a slight bitterness in the finish. The palate is heavy, smooth and clean. Overall, this is an excellent beer, made very mellow and smooth with age. The flavor is complex and pleasant.

Not the best contribution from La Trappe. Pours dark red with an amazing head but a surprisingly mild aroma. In the face of La Trappe’s other beers, the uniqueness of this beer’s dark fruit taste doesn’t compare.

Classica birra che vuole essere complessa e invece è "trappista" solo nel marchio. Bah

BelgianBeerGal (3435) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2011
75cl traded bottle somewhere in the neighborhood of a year old. Pretty classic appearance and aroma although the latter trended towards something like a quad. Taste was nice too; sweeter malt and maybe a little boozey for "only" 7.5ABV. Fine.

MotherBrother (817) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2011
Pour Deeb amber, with a big fomay white head. A bit bitter, or bitter-sweet. Aroma of sour fruits. Not my cop of tea, so to speak.

Hark! What flavor doth impart upon thine palate?! It is this BPA and my tongue is ablaze with delight! Goes daggum good with these buffalo wings! This brew had my senses on overload! Abundant in scent and abundant in flavor, this brew was quite the excitement from start to finish! As the brew warmed up those flavors and scents became much more robust and I found that as it continued to warm that brew just got better and better! Definitely a quality brew to have a good stock of on-hand!

notalush (5396) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2011
33cl bottle - gusher - pours a turbid purplish red - thick, frothy, lasting head - musty, dusty, earthy aroma, with notes of doughy yeast, Christmas cookies, plum, fig, bread pudding/treacle, cinnamon - soft carbonation, somewhat creamy in the mouth - flavor is sweet, but not nearly as much as the aroma suggests - notes of raisin and plum, a bit of toffee - moderate spiciness - mild earthiness, cobweb, oxidation - finish sweetens up a bit more, but the pronounced character in the finish is an almost peppery spiciness - I like it!
