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.

PorterPounder (5190) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 750 ml caged corked bottle. Pours a murky light orange with a sift silky head that sticks around leaves a bit of sticky lacing. Fresh fruity aroma - peaches, cantaloupe come to mind. Chewy flavor with some soft raisin accents, a hint of chocolate and some cookie dough. Mouthfeel has nice carbonation to it. didn’t blow me over but a nice drinking Belgian.

Tejas (851) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Draught > Flying Saucer. Has the usual yeasty fruity flavor that shows up in all La Trappe beers. Good cherry esters on this one. Incredibly drinkable. Will drink again.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2009
Bottle… Lightly hazy amber ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma is complex mélange of caramel, biscuit, brown candy sugar, freshly baked bread, mandarin orange, light clove and a hint of sassafras. Medium to full-bodied with powerful carbonation. Leans a bit toward the sweet side of balance; offering up cookie, biscuit and whispers of clove, sassafras and mint. Crisp, lightly bitter, bready finish.

Bottle. Amber color. Malt, tangerine and a hint of pepper in the aroma. Malty sweetish flavor with pepper, tangerine, hints of tropical fruit and a touch of alcohol. Medium bodied, sticky mouthfeel. Pleasant and quite drinkable trappist ale.

djd07 (2912) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear copper amber with a large frothy off white head that leaves good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a sweet malt with yeast and banana. Medium mouthfeel with a dry malt with caramel and light spice with a nice dry finish. Hides the alcohol well making it easy to drink, a very good Belgian ale,

satan165 (1018) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2009
sample at fall 2009 tasting at brasserie jo. big yeasty nose that slowly reveals weizen like characteristics. sharp and refreshing again like the beer it seems to be emulating. hit of booze in aroma is fleeting but returns with a prickly sensation on the palate. color is a shade off of simple orange with near typical belgian head.

Moolesen (106) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2009
30cl bottle. Too large creamy head which might have been caused due to its temperature (I usual drink beers around 12-15 C). The taste is not as sweet as La Trappe’s Dubbel, but more intense, with a nice bitterness. A very nice beer

MennoO (148) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2009
bottle, hazy orange-brown with medium white head. overall nice aroma and flavours. fruity, sweet, some malt. it misses complexity though
