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.

RSRIZZO (1914) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2012
33cl. (11.16oz) bottle poured into a Trappist glass at 45°. Color is a hazy orange gold with very good carbonation and a very tight smooth white head. Aroma is a fruity Belgian yeast scent. It has a lighter medium body that goes down with a smooth almost creamy mouth feel. Flavor has a light malt taste giving it a nice touch of toffee then a nice fruity Belgian yeast with pear and pineapple. After taste is slightly dry as the fruit flavor lingers. Overall, like everything I’ve had from this brewer, this is a great Belgian Ale.

It poured a medium copper color with a thin white head. The aroma was of light fruit, apricot and pear. The taste was light malts with a nice sour apple overtone. Thanks Strykzone.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. I brought it. Wood brown and murky. A small beige head. A big time fruity nose that is quite sweet. The flavor is not quite as sweet but is every bit as fruity. It is complex fruit. This is sspuper easy to drink. Some yeast and malt. The finish is a bit of chocolate and more malt. A bit boozy, too. I like this.

Draught at Ninkasi Public House Tel Aviv. Pours hazy ruby-copper with a thick white head. Fruity apple-cinnamon aroma, tart-tatain maybe? Full, rich bitter taste. Full body, bitter finish, high carbonation. Good winter ale.

MaartenRF10 (1817) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2012
Clear amber with small off-white head. Taste is overripe fruit, banana and raisins, all moderate. It’s over-carbonated and too thin-bodied. Relatively sweet as well.

Pours a dark and hazy amber color. Aromas and flavors of spices, yeast, fruit, caramel and a little bit of alcohol. Medium bodied with low carbonation and a sweet finish. A solid beer.
