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.

Poured a hazy dark copper with a thin head. Decent lacing. Aroma is very fruity with some yeast, syrup, and a hint of alcohol. Taste is sweet with fruit, caramel, and some bitterness. Fizzy on the palate. Lasting aftertaste that is almost bubblegum.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Draft @ Avenue Pub. Deep ruby auburn. Sweet candisugar aroma. Cinnamon spice and peppermint. Cakey malts. Sweet sugars don’t become cloying bc of the spicy finish. Light mellow carbo and medium body. Flavors mellow, but alcohol goes to head. Fruitcake with the red candied bits. Pannetone Italian Xmas bread. Candied Orange peel. Kwakish. Spicy sweet candi Belgian strong. About what I expected.

DSG (11117) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle. Hazy reddish dark amber color with a huge, stable, creamy off-white head. Yeasty aroma with lots of fruit esters, light spicy notes and a bit of caramel. Sweetish flavor, fruity and spicy, with some caramelly malt and a drier finish with some slightly peppery alcohol notes. Medium-bodied. OK.

ThreeCats (764) - ISRAEL - DEC 25, 2011
Dark, hazy,copper with a large, slightly off-white head, aroma of malt and bread, raisins, and some grass, not as pronounced as in most trappist beers. Malt and raisins in the taste, medium-full mouthfeel, bitterness remains subtle as palate develops, with alcohol taste in the back of the throat.

jvhemert (374) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 24, 2011
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.

(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.
