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.

hawthorne00 (2549) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 2, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 750ml bottle, caged cork closure. Abbey glass. Dark gold, creamy head. Yeasty fruit nose. Fruity and almondy - I suppose that means apricots. Moderate carbonation. Slightly oily. Some bitterness and cloves at the finish. Drier and less yeasty than their tripel, less interesting than either that or the quad. Nice, but really not that special. [3.4]

Little bottle, 11C. Amber with a light beige head. Aroma is fruity and doughy with light spices. Sweet and fruity with apricots, orange oil, light muscatels and almonds, white pepper. A touch of tart apples. Dry finish with some bitterness.

From a 750 corked and caged bottle purchased at BevMo. Poured a cloudy amber with a moderate sized beige head. The nose has notes of fruit, mostly apple, some yeast, and some caramel. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is sweet with some malt, caramel, yeast, and again that apple, along with some light spices, culminating in a dry spicy finish.
