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.

AROMA: floral, resin, dough, alcohol APPEARANCE: golden, clear, frothy then minimal head TASTE: light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour PALATE: fizzy, medium body, slick feel, OVERALL: too fizzy, and too much alcohol in the aftertaste, not the best La Trappe, but does have much character with many aromas.

SlovakSniper (4650) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2011
(33 cl, courtoisie de Viper666) Une petite tête flotte sur un liquide ambré. Un nez malté et grillé, touché par du miel, du caramel, des amandes, des raisins, des oranges et des cerises. Au goût, un alcool bien présent mais jamais agressant dans lequel baigne des flaveurs fruitées et caramélisées. Une légère amertume, des houblons discrets mais goûteux. Une bouche portante avec une effervescence modérée et une texture crémeuse. Une finale légèrement mordante qui s’accorde sur des notes maltées et légèrement chaudes.

rodenbach99 (3990) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
Bouteille de 330ml. Bière ambrée avec une mousse beige crémeuse et durable. Le nez est frais, épicé, une touche de levure est perceptible. La bouche est impeccable avec des goûts boisées, bien épicées. La finale a une touche d’alcool et de gomme balloune.

mutz (814) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2011
Van de tap op het Scrooge festival in Arcen. Donkergeel van kleur met een goede kraag. Lekker zoetig en fris. Smaakte supervers en fruitig. Was eigenlijk iets te koud getapt om de smaaknuances mee te krijgen. Ik heb ’m ook ooit uit een flesje geproefd en toen was ik niet zo onder de indruk.....

GSAP (660) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2011
UPDATED: APR 29, 2014 De geur van banaan met wat ander fruit, erg fris. Schuimkraag verliest snel zijn vorm. Smaak is puur, een mix van citrusfruit, zachte karamel en ver weg wat koriander, licht bittertje die langer lijft hangen. Leve Isidorus. #2 schuimkraag blijft nu fier overeind, temperatuur iets hoger laten opkomen. Aroma en smaak precies zoals eerste rating. Drinkt fijn weg, met steeds iets te ontdekken, zo’n breed palet.

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.
