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.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2012
(Bottle) Hazy amber colour with brief, frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with apricots, dried fruit, orange peel, treacle toffee and a slight acidity. Malty, fruity taste with notes of dried fruit, marzipan, caramel, orange, treacle, crisp-bread and a slightly citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness, drying out towards the end. Well balanced and tasty. Nice one.

schoolofchuck (135) - Kansas, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Light spice aroma, maybe even a little pear and apple. Dark copper color, almost brown. Taste seems slighly bitter upfront with a lingering sweetness. Has a thick mouthfeel with low carbonation. Not bad, but certainly nothing special.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Geschmacklich ist es süßlich-fruchtig leicht alkoholisch wobei die Fruchtigkeit in Richtung süß-apfelig und bedingt citrus geht, nur bedingt citrus, da das Bier nicht säuerlich ist, die fruchtigkeit mit seiner süße sorgt für ein Erfrischendes und leckeres Aroma, das stärkere Prickeln und der leichte Alkoholgeschmack machen es dagen zu einem Bier das die Trappisten gut vertritt. Das zweite Glas ist nicht ganz so fruchtig dafür mehr süß-hefig und etwas stärker jedoch immernoch zurückhaltend alkoholisch. Test vom 5.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,12,12,12,12,12 - 11,80

Small white head. Hazy brown body. Caramelly roasty sugar and banana aroma with oily licorice notes. Dry-sweet strawberry and licorice taste with banana and spice notes. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel. Dryish oily spicy licorice aftertaste with herbal notes. Very nice and dangerously drinkable. (0.33l draft at Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki.)

Bontus (758) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2012 Tasted, draft, at the open brewery day. Pours dark orange, almost brown, very dense shiny head. Nose and aroma are very sweet, candy, caramel, ... Palate a bit too sticky as a result. Rerate: not that sticky as first.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Aroma is candied fruit of caramel malt with yeasty background. Opaque dark orange with persistent tan head. Sweet flavor, kind of salty and sour. This is a beer where the yeast really run the show throughout the drinking experience. Crisp front and flush finish. Many estery Belgians have this profile, but few are this heavy A winner in the small horse race.
