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.

Abio (1816) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2010
Pours out orange-amber coloured. A medium sized head, colapses way to quick for sure. Good spiced smell. A bit earhy, some sourness that comes up, malts, caramel. NIce smell, only something metallic that disturbes it a bit. Decent taste for sure, the nice smell gets back at the taste. Some nice balance between bitter and sweet, with some more sweetness. Not to much fruits inside, good spiced. A bit of a surprise for me.

Tranquillity (1584) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2010
Nice one! The beer is very dark brown orange hazy with a yellow hinge. The middle/sized head is very compact and creates a perfect haze after settling. The aroma of raisins and orange zest works very well together. Very full, good palate. Soft and silky. The taste is not as strong as the aroma suggests. The finish is perfect - just enough taste very similar to that of the aroma, always tempting you to get that next sip. Great!

SHIG (4060) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - AUG 31, 2010
Bottle: Poured a orange to gold color with white head. Aroma is that of fruit and yeast. Taste was mix of citrus and mellow fruit, malt, and yeast. A bit of alcohol kick.

ClubGonzo (4903) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2010
Bottle @ Bierproeflokaal In De Wildeman, Amsterdam. Pours a clear, amber body with a medium, off-white head. Aroma is figs, caramel and hints of booze. Taste is warming boozy notes with caramel notes and a touch of whiskey. Pretty straight-forward taste profile, not too much complexity going on here. Some maltiness around mid-palate. A bit boring, to be honest, but overall a decent beer.

Beerdrinker79 (1811) - Idaho, USA - AUG 29, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2010 750 ml. corked n’ caged bottle- Pours unclear golden amber with a skim of foam, the aroma is bananas and yeast, also very Belgium. The flavor is very Belgium obviously, fruity up front and no alcohol presence, just pure brewing genius, its nice to finally have the only Trappist brewery thats actually not form Belgium,and it could not taste finer. Thats not to say that this is the best trappist brew, I can think of at least five that are better, all from Belgium. Thats not to say anything bad about this beer, its a great beer.

LomYst (669) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2010
Aroma has lot’s of malt, some caramel, not nearly as much fruit as you would imagine on account of this beer’s color (almost none actually)... some alchohol also... it has a nice medium to full body... complex malty taste... it also stays alive quite some time... if you look at La Trappe’s other beers (especially the uber fruity tripple) this beer is a nice addition

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Aroma is caramel and yellow fruits, hints of bananas foster, grain, hay. Big banana-y yeast character in the flavor. Medium sweet. Mouthfeel seems a wee bit thin, considering. Not bad at all, but it may be my least favorite La Trappe.
