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.

Kuparinen, punaiseen vivahtava olut ja paksu, runsas, valkoinen vaahto. Nätti olut. Tuoksussa on hedelmäisyyttä, karamellia ja siirappia. Maultaan olut on hieman makea, hedelmäinen, rusinainen ja aavistuksen mausteinen. Melko kuiva.

RSRIZZO (1940) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2012
33cl. (11.16oz) bottle poured into a Trappist glass at 45°. Color is a hazy orange gold with very good carbonation and a very tight smooth white head. Aroma is a fruity Belgian yeast scent. It has a lighter medium body that goes down with a smooth almost creamy mouth feel. Flavor has a light malt taste giving it a nice touch of toffee then a nice fruity Belgian yeast with pear and pineapple. After taste is slightly dry as the fruit flavor lingers. Overall, like everything I’ve had from this brewer, this is a great Belgian Ale.

It poured a medium copper color with a thin white head. The aroma was of light fruit, apricot and pear. The taste was light malts with a nice sour apple overtone. Thanks Strykzone.
