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.

Pours up an amber with a bit of red, with a thick white head. Smells of mild alcohol. Taste has a lot of body and complexity. Spices, mostly. Interesting beer, I didn’t expect this.

750 mL bottle (K09F9). Pours murky copper with a two finger khaki head into a tulip; fades to lacing. Somewhat musty aroma of Belgian yeast, clove, faint spicy hops, light apple and red grapes. Plumb, red apples, and grapes take over at the beginning of the drink. A mild spicy hop/clove presence with balancing bready malts comes in around the middle. The finish is dry, musty, and a bit tart with banana and apricot. The abv is a bit more noticeable than I’d like here. It doesn’t hamper the drinkability, but I feel it doesn’t do the finish justice. Light to medium bodied with a fuzzy mouthfeel and a medium level of carbonation. All in all, fairly good.

Pours a cloudy dark golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of fruits, yeast and candy sweetness. Good flavor of yeast, hops, candied fruits and a mild farmhouse character, there’s mild bitterness in the end. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. Quite interesting.

Pour is classic amber with a huge head. Lots of fruity and floral notes on the nose. Raisin, plum, and light citrus/peach notes. Also hibiscus and a little honey for sure. Taste is light and refreshing, big honey, candied fruit, macadamia nut, with a sweet finish. Palate is a tad sticky, but not unpleasant, carb seems low for the style, but alcohol is nicely balanced. Overall very drinkable, wish it was a tad cheaper I would definitely buy a good amount.

Pours a nice, light brown amber color, with a white/amber colored head. Complex smell, spicy yeast, some caramel, fresh and lots of fruity (citrus) notes. The taste is very good. The beer has a slightly bitter taste (a great mix of spicy hops and yeast) with a fantastic fruity aftertaste with some faint hints of caramel. It’s is a surprisingly well balanced amber beer. The mouthfeel is very smooth, but the beer is a bit high in carbonation. Overall a very good Dutch beer, especially for the summer period. One of my favourite La Trappe beers already (although not better than the la Trappe Quadruppel).
