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.

Nice burnt amber color with light colored carbonation. Dried fruit and caramel nose. Lightly hopped to offset the sweet caramel taste. Good finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (11399) - 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.
