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.

bottle, pours carmel red with a tall light tan head. Nice sweet carmel aroma. Toasted nutty malt base with candy sugar and light white pepper notes in the finish. I like this and it’s a great session brew.

Bloekie (210) - BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2009
This beer reminds a lot of Orval, without the dry finish. You could say it’s a wet Orval, only flatter in taste, like a watered-down version. Appearance isn’t all that well, very sparkly and an uneven foamy head. Not really tasty, but very lively.

Oddio..questo favoloso luppolo coltivato autonomamente dai monaci di Koningshoeven io non vorrei neanche vederlo in cartolina, dato che la sua presenza è davvero da seduta spiritica in questa birra dolciona e quasi respingente. Tuttavia, se devo stare fedele al mio metro, è la migliore Trappe che ho assaggiato dopo la pur deludente quadrupel; 125 anni di produzione e tanta furbizia, sicuramente Frate Isidoro sarebbe contento di vedere come la sua piccola impresa sia divenuta uno dei più celebri avvelenatori di birromani pseudoconsapevoli. Questo prodotto non fa che confermare la mia scarsa stima per il marchio La Trappe, però al momento mi riscalda anche un pochino e scende in qualche modo. Sapete che devo correggere 30 pagine di tesi? Mi viene il latte alle ginocchia; inoltre con sto font greco sto diventando pazzo. Frate Isidoro, aiutami tu.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Brown pour with ruby highlights. A flew flecks of lace. The aroma was yeast, light spices and some citrus. The flavor was a fairly standard Belgian ale, led by the expected yeast profile and some malt. A bit of lively citrus made it slightly more interesting. Nice, medium bodied mouthfeel.
