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.

drfat at Blue Monk. Toffee/caramel colored pour. Rich maltiness & toffee are the dominant factors in the aroma. Light nuttiness, lots of toffee richness, raisiny notes. Very flavorful, surprised at the average ratings

On tap at the abbey cafe during last week’s trip to Belgium. Reviewed from notes. Served in a La Trappe chalice. Pours an amber-caramel color with a great white head and plenty of lacing. The nose brings light fruit and some caramel. A bit of bread crust. The flavor adds in a fair amount of fruit. The mouthfeel is full and chewy with a bit of alcohol and light bitterness. Nothing spectacular.

kappldav123 (5515) - GERMANY - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass orange, huge head. Starts mild, moldy-malty, a bit yeasty. Fruity notes of banana. Also some spicy notes. Well balanced finish, quite drinkable. Not bad!

Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels
Hazy golden-amber color. Mild malt aroma with light vegetables. Correct body strength; malt flavor with some sweetness, light fruitiness (peach/apricot jam), but also very light vegetables; low bitterness. Drinkable, but uncomplex.

750, corked and baled. Pours a cloudy dark brown with bright toffee-colored edges. Toweringly massive tan moussy suds on top. Big sweet caramel, cream, and green apple nose. Smells like a cross between a tripel and a table beer. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, green apples, and sweet cream on the mid palate. Mild sweet brown bread finish. Nice beer but not their best.

Hair6a11 (1427) - Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2011
On tap at the map room; pour is murky dark golden with an off white head that retains on the average side in this tulip; eventually hazing the glass, while the lacing is fairly impressive here. The nose is sweet breads, spices, caramel, and plum skins. The flavor profile didn’t really impress me; there are some other notes present, however. There’s a certain sweetness up front, like honey, as well as the caramel. Bready malts are present, while there is also a bitterness on the finish, like port, coupled with dark fruits.

Bottle at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Red brown color, off-white head. Smell moderately sweet. Taste pretty much the same. Average carbo and body. Decent.
