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.

Malty and some caramel. This great looking beer is highly enjoyable and one of the best dutch beers you’ll probably find from the Netherlands.

PatBateman81 (178) - Caserta, ITALY - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle 33 cl bought @ Bir&Fud (Rome, Italy). A great appearance characterized by an intense cloudy structure from orange to brown. Flat head, anyway, just an half finger with no persistence at all. Yeasty and bready aroma, some spices, orange and fruit, floral and dried wheat, but all notes are weak in general. It has a medium body and high carbonation; the taste is annoyingly like ALL the La Trappe line: something fruity, breadish, but totally ordinary in malt and caramel feeling. Finish is slowly harsh, and nothing more. Industrial Trappists strikes back.

33cl Bottle from Bierzwerg. Appearance is reddish-brown color, slight off-white head with decent lacing. Aroma is malty with caramel as the dominant note along with some bread and fruit. Taste is similar with the caramel malts standing out complimented by the bread and some spice. Licorice and a leathery yeast hints also noticeable. Palate is medium-bodied, slick texture, fizzy, slight hard carbonation, and a mild bitter finish.

Bottle. What a nice surprise to stumble across this one, hadn’t even heard of its release. Nose is full of banana and clove, big yeast component. Dark orange pour with heavy mahogany edges and a much lighter creamy head. Taste is straight-up Weizenbock with less grapish malt but intensified alcohol presence. Dryish with a small caramel base and a significant sack of dried and candied fruits. Warms with a little earthy grit, full body doesn’t quite have the grace I was hoping for, but still makes for a nice sipper.

Bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Thanks sayravai. Originally rated on 5.12.2009. Pretty generic dark Belgian ale, nothing special here. Nice finish.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 27, 2011
Bright and clear reddish ale with a voluminous creamy white head. You smell that this beer hasd maturity in the form of a little bit of funky blue cheese, beeswax and malt biscuit. It’s a smell I really enjoy. There’s a thump on the back as this beer greets you hello. Strong, warming alcohols and a tang of older beer. It’s full bodied, creamy and rich. Tasty, but I have had better. In saying that, not bad at all.

nuplastikk (5268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 23, 2011
On tap at The Malt House. Served in official glassware. Murky orange-brown. Thick, creamy off white head. Soft effervescence. Really well executed, a chewy, nutty Belgian style Amber meets Bruin of sorts. Perfect balance. Smooth caramel finish. Very mild and drinkable. Excellent beer. Soft and doughy, light peppery hop balance.

maledictum (733) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUN 7, 2011
Bottle. 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.
