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.

Boutip (5910) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle: Poured a deep caramel color ale with a huge foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of Belgian caramel malt with some sweet notes and some light fruity ester. Taste is also a mix between some Belgian caramel malt with some good notes of fruity ester and a balanced level of sweetness. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed with nice level of complexity and great level of drinkability.

ThirstyBird (2613) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2012
Pours hazy reddish brown with a lofty light tan head. Smell is caramel, fruit, yeast - smells rich and delish! Tastes as it smells with a hint of a sour twang to it which is nice finishes a bit dry. Medium body with active carbonation which is finely structured. I liked this beer the first time I tried it a couple of years ago and i still do.

Davros (2782) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2012
Pours dark amber with a large, fading head. Nose shows sweet confectionary notes, banana, pear and apple esters alongside caramel. Flavours are equally sweet but seem a little weak, with just a bit of confectionery and alcohol. Not particularly interesting. Carbonation is too full on.
