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.

Sampled on 3/5/2010. This Belgian Ale pours a medium brown copper color from a 750ml bottle. Medium sized beige foamy head, with good lacing and nice retention. The aroma is fruity, sweet, plums and yeast. A medium bodied Belgian Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, bready and yeasty. The hops are earthy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Mellow and unassuming. Smooth taste. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5402) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2010
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a large beige head. The aroma was sweetish and fruity with a spicy and peppery undertone. The flavor was tart and bitter with a fairly strong fruity hop presence and undertones of sugar, pepper and yeast. The finish was long, dry, yeasty and had lingering grapefruit. Fairly full bodied. Interesting.

yngwie (15194) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 4, 2010
Bottle, 75cl corked, at RBNAG -09, courtesy of OleR. A dense, two-finger, off-white head sits on top of an unclear, orangey dark golden body. Some cellar in the aroma, but it’s mostly fruits and fruitsyrup. The flavor is pretty much the same, with white sugar sweetness. Lasting finish with cellar, citrus and fruityness. Full-bodied and with a pleasant warmth. Overall, a bit on the sweet side, but a nice beer anyway. 091107

Mora2000 (5930) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2010
I picked this up on a recent trip to Austin. 11.2 ounce bottle poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass. The beer pours a nice orange color with a white head. The aroma is strong Belgian yeast with some fruit, wheat and bubblegum. Very nice smelling. The flavor is very similar with the bubblegum and fruit being fairly strong. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

11.2 ounce bottle in Chimay glass. Caramel color with dense beige head and some lace. Spicy bready marshmallow aroma. Spicy sweet marshmallow caramel tomato tobacco with spicy and sweet lingering finish without cloying. Pretty darn complex. Not what I was expecting, but very good.
