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.

33 cl bottle. Orange/copper body with a small fizzy head. Roasted malt in the nose with touches of caramel en wood. The caramel en roasted malt come back in the taste and some alcohol. Medium sweetness, lightly bitter. Fizzy carbonation with an alcoholic aftertaste.

A reddish brown ale with a thin light moka head. In aroma, loads of barley candy, maderized, faint cardboard. In mouth, maple, treacle, nutty notes, light alcohol warmth, a bit light and tired. Shared with GRM, March 10 2011.

Bottle. Pours a light copper. Nose is malty/yeasty. Dry with fruit notes, Belgian yeast and a dry finish. Seems like a Belgian session ale,but there is decent depth and warmth to the flavor. Caramel/honey finish.

This beer has a very sweet and tart taste. The aroma reminds me of a stick of Blackpool rock

JStax (4306) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Poured into a tulip glass from a bottle. Appearance is a mildly hazy amber with a huge beige head that fades rather quickly. Aroma is toasty notes of bread and fruits. Taste is a lot like an apple. On the verge of sourness, but it just doesn’t quite get there. This is a very nice beer. Definitely one to pick up if you get the opportunity.

Draft at the double windsor. Huge aromas of grapes, dark fruits and yeasty bread. Flavors follow the nose with perfect balance of sweet and dry. Pretty good.

Hazy copper, persistant beige head, medium-full body, medium-high carbonation.

Aroma: tons of caramel and toffee, bready belgian yeast, slight alcohol warmth, and subtle fruity esters.

Taste: caramel, toffee, fruity belgian yeast esters, herbal stale hops, slight alcohol, and a slight sour note.

Complex but balanced.

3/9/11. Bottle courtesy mlunger12. Hazy orange pour with a fluffy off-white head that fades. Sweet yeasty aroma with a light burnt caramel and candy sugar taste. Not bad.

12oz bottle, new Trappist tick, spicy Belgian aroma, quite a bit floral and yeasty, easy to drink, not a bad option.

11.2 oz bottle, unique cap to this beer. The first Konigshoeven beer to be labeled as ’La Trappe’ in the United States. It pours a darker brownish/reddish pale with a hint of amber. The head is massive and ivory white and as it recedes it leaves delicate lacing. This one packs a punch in the smell department. It has tons of fruity elements including grapes, raisins, and other dark fruits. Lots of yeasty esters. There is a subtle hint of hops though it sits in the background. The mouthfeel is the first thing I notice here, it is not super carbonated, instead more of a barleywine type mouthfeel, interesting. It has a definite vinous/grapey vibe going through it along with raisin. It also has a large sweetness that also carries herbal hops. It is a solid pale ale, a somewhat unique one that has a bit different drinkability and mouthfeel characteristic than your standard Belgian Strong Pale Ale.
