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.

75cl bottle from Systembolaget. Best before 2012-02-01. It poured a hazy amber colour with a big medium big creamy white head. The aroma is sweet and inticing with notes of banana, apples, fruits, yeast and malts. The flavour is also sweet and malty. Notes of banana, apples, fruits and yeast. Some alcohol, but it’s hidden well. It has a medium long aftertaste. A very nice way to celebrate my 300th rating at RateBeer.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2009
0.75 L corked bottle from de Bierkoning, Amsterdam. A thin offwhite head upon a hazed orangey-brown body. Spiced, slightly sweet malt aroma. Some Belgo-yeast and ripe fruits. Sweet-flavored. Herbal, with yeast notes and a caramelly malt profile. Fruity background and tones of earth. Mid-bodied. Quite sticky in the mouth. Dries up a bit towards the ending. Solid, does not stand out.

Honey pour produces a descent ivory head that left significant lacing. Aroma and flavor show bubblegum, banana, clove, belgian yeast, and caramel. Not a favorite.

phaleslu (6843) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle from Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton. Pours a hazy orange color with a big beige head that sticks. Aroma of mixed fruits, caramel, Belgian yeast, and straw. The flavor also has a nice amount of fruit- banana, apricot, plum, green grapes, with notes of yeast, caramel, and straw. Some mild spice rounds out the palate. Soft and smooth, with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Nothing exciting, but solid.

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2009
Amber coloured beer with some very light carbonation and a small white head. Sweet vanilla alcoholic malty aroma. Full creamy palate. Finish is bitter, vanilla alcholic and fruity hinted. Nice one.

750ml bottle $10.49, I feel cheated. Hazy orange color, the head sucks, ha! It smells like funky fruits, belgian yeast, interesting. the taste is more of the same, weird fruits but not sour, maybe a bit of apple in the aftertaste, odd. This was an odd trappist beer, I would have rather had the dubbel. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-21-2009 02:34:18

Bottle at home. Cloudy amber coloured with a medium sized off white head. Sweet aroma of bananas, caramel and dried fruits. Sweet and fruity flavour of bananas, caramel and dried fruits. Sweet finish. Too sweet.

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.
