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.

A beer from a minitrade with Countbeer - Thanks a lot. A nicely poured beer with a fine tanned head on top of a redish-brown body with a mild hazy glow. The nose is malty with clear caramel notes topped with raisins - a real belgian landslide. The taste is likeways a tour de force through belgian impressions just with some harchness in the finish. Not much to tell in the aftertaste. Sume cane sugar, mild spices and raisins with lots of caramels. The mouthfeel is medium on the light side with a sparklin feeling.

Hazy medium amber with a clean white head and good lacing. A great looking brew. Taste is solid Abbey Ale with a chewy caramel malt and raisens. Floral hops show up midway through the swallow, and then give way to more candied fruit and raisens joined by alcohol warmth in the finish. Very well done.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2011
330ml bottle from Cornelius. Pours a deep golden colour with a decent yellowish head. Aroma of raisins, alcohol and candy sugar. Similar raisin flavour with some caramel, biscuity malt and a long alcohol hum. Moderate carbonation and a little CO2 prickle. A dry raisiny finish. Not bad.

Caramel-color with fair creamy collar. Sweet caramel smell, not strong. Sweet mild taste of abbey beer, lemon freshness, fruity sweetness?

Served in my la trappe glass, bottle is around a year old,pours amber whit nice off white head, great aroma of yeast and dark fruits/cherries perhaps a bit of clove in there as well, love the aroma on this. The taste is good but not as lively as the aroma, taste of yeast clove and cherry but lacks the depth I was hoping for that the aroma gave me, bubbly mouthfeel and nice clean dry finish.
