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.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 27, 2011
Bright and clear reddish ale with a voluminous creamy white head. You smell that this beer hasd maturity in the form of a little bit of funky blue cheese, beeswax and malt biscuit. It’s a smell I really enjoy. There’s a thump on the back as this beer greets you hello. Strong, warming alcohols and a tang of older beer. It’s full bodied, creamy and rich. Tasty, but I have had better. In saying that, not bad at all.

nuplastikk (5090) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 23, 2011
On tap at The Malt House. Served in official glassware. Murky orange-brown. Thick, creamy off white head. Soft effervescence. Really well executed, a chewy, nutty Belgian style Amber meets Bruin of sorts. Perfect balance. Smooth caramel finish. Very mild and drinkable. Excellent beer. Soft and doughy, light peppery hop balance.

maledictum (725) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUN 7, 2011
Bottle. Hazy, amber colour with a big and beige foamy head. Yeasty and sweet toasty caramel-malty aroma with notes of ripe stone-fruits and a touch of coriander and liquorice. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly yeasty cara-malty taste with notes of biscuits, a tinge of citrus and present spices; toast-malty and bitter-spicy finish.

arminjewell (8673) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Pours dark reddish almost mahogany with off white head, aroma has notes of green apple, ripe fruit, candi sugar, molasses, toffee, and some vanilla. Taste is a very nice mix of tart and sweet, with the apples shining through tart and sweet, but notes of toffee, dark fruit, and vanilla balancing it out to create a very quaffable brew. Delicious!

wlajwl (4688) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Amber in color and the aroma is slightly nutty and malty. The flavor is as expected malty with a moderate yeast flavor to it. Subtle for a Belgian Ale but still very good.

MrHangover (3305) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2011
Nice brew, named after the first beer brewer of La Trappe, brother Isidor. Loads of carbonisation in the glass. A nice foamy thick head that stays on during the drink. Taste has a bit of caramel, some bread and nuts. Too bad it doesn’t stay long. Colour is nice amber red and looks good in the La Trappe goblet.

Defreni (2860) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2011
Flaske: Flot orange let diset øl med et kæmpe skumhoved, virkelig en majestætisk øl at se på. Duften er klassisk la trappe, men heldigvis ikke så sød som nogle af dens navnebrødre. Fin balanceret smag af frugt og sødme.
