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.

Pailhead (4572) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Bottle: The aroma consists of yeast, candi sugar, grape, and some spiciness with a hint of pepper. It pours a hazy dull brownish-orange with a half inch off-white head with decent retention. The flavor starts moderately yeasty with some candi sugar and a hint of sweet citrus. The finish is light-moderately spicy with a hint of grape, apple, and pepper. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and somewhat soft mouthfeel.

Orange copper in color w/ a lasting head of medium bubbles which leaves sheets of lace w/ each sip. Nose is rather mild, mostly cloves and a bit of banana. Really opens up once tasted where the mild sweetness and slight tartness bring out the fruitiness. There is a slight booziness to this which actually helps lighten the palate which already sits nicely on a soft cushion of carbonation. W/ a more generous nose, I think this could potentially be a truly top notch beer. As it is now, it is just a very nice Belgian and that hardly leaves room for complaints.

(bottle, 33cl) 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. 23.I.10

CanIHave4Beers (3134) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 21, 2010
My favorite beer from La Trappe? Perhaps. Pours a light orange with a medium fluffy head that retains its self well. The aroma is fruity and floral with some peach some spiciness and some metallic stuff. The flavor is well balanced and more to the dry side with good peach and yeast spiciness. The beer is remarkably drinkable however there is a mild booziness that sort of helps the flavors along more than hinders this beer in any way. The carbonation is perfect, just lightly bubbly on the tongue. I think I need to buy some more.

Out of a bottle in a trappist glass. Pours a beautiful orange color with a dense, full off-white head. Sweet malt with a little bit of a fruity backbone. Great full mouthfeel with brilliant yeast. Nice malt balance with the candy sugar, also a little orange on the late palate.

Thanks Andy. Lots of banana in the aroma and flavor. At first I was unimpressed by the balance provided by the yeast character, but by the end that had all changed. Metallic finish.
