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.

BlackHaddock (5658) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2012
1st had this beer in De Bierboom (Brugge) and bought this 33cl bottle (Euro 1.60) to review at home. Best before 09-2013 and poured into a Westmalle chalice on a quiet Saturday night in (4th June 2011). . Looks the part, mini haze in the hazel-nut reddy/brown body, a thin but complete off-white foaming head sat on top. Bubbles rising to the surface throughout the tasting. The head also prouced some good heavy lacing. Toffee in the nose, and the sweeter end of the malt table, no burnt or toasted bread or chocolate, just a pleasant toffee aroma. The taste is a lovely blend of toffee flavours and understated hops, which give the beer a slight bitterness towards the end of the mouthfeel. The alcohol contend is well hidden and this is so easy to drink you could forget it has an ABV of 7.5%.

_angst_ (4261) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2012
330 ml bottle bought @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours clear amber with a big fizzy and frothy off-white head that leaves some lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, yeasty and fruity with very ripe pears, plums, grapes, yeasty esters, orange zest, alcohol, hay, flower nectar and hints of lemon juice. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly bitter and slightly sour with pears, green apples, lemon juice, grapes, orange zest, grass, metal and yeast. Mouthfeel is smooth, bubbly, tiny sticky sweet and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and lingers for quite some time with the same kind of fruits found in the smell and taste.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 29, 2012
Csakajósör, Budapest, csapolva. Nagyon szép, borostyán vörös színe van, belül pedig varászgömbszerűen ködös és sejtelmesen gomolygó. Habja piszkosfehér, egész méretes, igen sűrű és kitartó. Illata belga élesztős, igen gyümölcsös, aszalt fügés, édeskés és fűszeres. Mintha egy aszalt gyümölcsökből készült édességbe kóstolnánk, ami egy édeskésebb likőrrel lenne leöntve, amihez csatlakozik egy adag grapefruit, sok finom fűszer és élesztő. Könnyű teste van és pezsgőszerűen buborékos. Utóíze keserédes, élesztős, aszalt gyümölcsös, kissé fanyar és száraz. Remek belga ale, a legjobbak között a helye!
