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.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 18, 2010
Quite an in your face aroma - old furniture, dusty/musty attic, and a big whack o’ hot alcohol. Luckily it gets so much better after that. Orange peel, allspice, nutmeg, and caramel on the palate. Makes you sip and sip and all of a sudden it’s gone. A great beer from a great brewery.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Draft at Three Penny Taproom - Poured an orange-amber in color with a medium foamy off-white head that stuck around to produce some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite yeasty, fruity (dark fruits, surprisingly) and definitely Belgian. Flavor is yeasty (of course), malty and slightly sweet... a hint of burnt sugar... some fruits... raisins, prunes, etc... some spices, but not overwhelming. Very good...

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 14, 2010
Bottle (in NZ), plenty of spice on the nose and the palate. Raisiny and medicinal, along with the caramel malt and orange fruit. The alcohol seems more than the 7.5%.

750 ml bottle sampled@RBNAG 2009, Vatlandsvåg. Hazy orange body with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity and spicy. Flavor is malt, some light burnt caramel and a bit sharp spicy. Quite nice without being anything special.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Sampled in a 22oz bottle. A pretty nice brew. One of the better dutch brews I have had. Overall the quality is fair. Aroma is malty with not much spice. Flavor is weaker than what you would have expected from this Beligian rivals.

thegreenrooster (3295) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Pour is a dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is candi sugar with some light fruit and dry malts. Flavor is caramel with some dark fruit and spice. This is good but just ok as there is really nothing to carry this one over the top.
