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.

wlajwl (4793) - 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 (3492) - 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 (2863) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (13631) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Hefig alkoholischer Antrunk, wenig herb, etwas süßlich. Das Bier bietet nicht gerade ein breites Aromenspektrum. Zum Ende noch muffig malzig. 7/6/7/6/8/6

Nice colour and smell. Tastefully and at the same time not to strong. A nice beer

Kuzo (116) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Pours a medium copper with thin white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is light fruit, apricot, pear. Taste is light malts with a nice sour apple overtone. The apple really becomes prevalent as it warms up. Very mild spice. Soft, light/medium bodied, some carbonation. Goes down very easy but not much to remember.

erickok (4340) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2011
Amberbrown body, lightly filtered, with nutty coloured head. Big head with small bubbles that brings out a yeasty aroma. Dough, leather, roasty and spices/nutmeg. Rich typical Belgian style sweetness with a slight bitterness in the back - but fatty rather than dry. Like the sticky mouthfeel. Slow drinker. (33cl bottle)

Chipalsa (1311) - Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Poured from a bottle into a trappist glass. The head is very thick, and the lacing is smooth and creamy. The color is a hazy amber, with a medium body. The scent is rich with dark fruits (plum more specifically) and some caramel with a hint of spice. The flavor is delicious and satisfying, the low carbonation makes it seem creamy. Flavors of sweet malts and yeast come to the tongue, with a faint vanilla bean aftertaste chased by the spicy warmth of a nice 7.5% abv. I loved this brew, simply another fantastic trappist brew.

Martinus (4065) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2011
Red amber colour, enthusiastic, fluffy, cream white head. Yeasty malt aroma, some tartness, banana, reminding of overripe fruit. Rather sweet flavour, quite malty, caramel, some spice. Slight bitterness coming through. Finish rather dry, some lingering fruits/malt tones. Rather nice. (From 33cL bottle)
Brewed for the 125th aniversary of the brewery, and this is my 125th rating. What a coincidence ;)

beer4eternity (212) - Tauranga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 3, 2011
330ml bottle. Looks nice in the glass: Opaque, hazy, orange-amber hue with small amount of yeast sediment, large frothy light beige head quickly diminishes, sudsy lacing. Divine array of complex aromas: very fruity (sweet over-ripe fruits, apricot, banana esters, cherry) marzipan, moderately malty especially caramel, toffee, brown sugar, yeasty , spicy (clove especially) later on a hint of mint, yuuum. Tastes delicious: light heavy sweet though not cloying, moderately bitter. Enjoyable palate: medium body, oily slightly syrupy texture, light carbonation, dry warming spicy finish. Very very enjoyable.
