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.

Pours a nice, light brown amber color, with a white/amber colored head. Complex smell, spicy yeast, some caramel, fresh and lots of fruity (citrus) notes. The taste is very good. The beer has a slightly bitter taste (a great mix of spicy hops and yeast) with a fantastic fruity aftertaste with some faint hints of caramel. It’s is a surprisingly well balanced amber beer. The mouthfeel is very smooth, but the beer is a bit high in carbonation. Overall a very good Dutch beer, especially for the summer period. One of my favourite La Trappe beers already (although not better than the la Trappe Quadruppel).

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2010
Dark orange. A lot of yeast but more fruit than a std Belgian (Dutch) ale. Some sourness/acid. A bit watery palate. There’s some bitterness but it fades off and finish quite bleak.

popephred (257) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Poured from the bottle into a goblet. Pour produced a copper colored, topped by a quickly diminishing head of off-white. Aroma is rich with hay and citrus. Sweet flavor with a medium mouth feel. This was a fine session beer with a balanced sweetness and minimal aftertaste.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Tasting – The Wine Source. Hazed copper, creamy off white head. Soft rich figgy-orange nose warms to light caramelized plum-like notes. Subtle dark fruity flavors balance on a lighter toffee-pear undercurrent throughout. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, soft bittersweet finish. Worth checking out at least once…
