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.

Bottle: Slightly hazy, light amber coloured, small persistent creamy off-white head, moderate fruity (citrus-fruity) and toasty nose; moderate - as well - bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; increasing alcohol in the sweet-bitter finish, followed by a distinctive tartness in the aftertaste. O.K. yawn.......

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2010
tasted 11/7/2009. beautiful hazy fiery burnt orange colored pour with a huge pale orange tinted tannish head. rich yeasty aroma... notes of candy caramels, orange peel, earthy spices, wet grass, a little vanilla, flowers and some fruitiness (apricots?). the flavor is equally yeast filled and somehow hot... a bit sweet but it finishes nicely dry... in between are notes of banana esters, flowers, brown sugar and clove-y cinnamon spiciness. it tastes a lot like bananas cooked in brown sugar caramel and sprinkled with clove/cinnamon and some kind of booze. the medium body is terribly easy to drink as it is prickly yet airy and soft. pretty safe and run of the mill but very tasty. 7/5/7/4/15/3.8

This beer pours a deep amber with a thin white head leaving a little lacing down the sides. The aromas are caramel, candied sugar and light citrus. Flavors are candied sugar a little cinnamon and light citrus. Cheers!

Botled 33cl (BB 01/2012)
Courtesy of bierkoning, ty Edo! Deep amber, hazy, color, steady off-white head. Fruity, a bit sweetish, Leffe-like aroma. Crisp carbonation. Slightly alcoholic, apricot, grapes, banana, lychee fruityness. A bit thin. Brewed for the 125th anniversary, but beer itself is not much to celebrate. Beer for masses and way too overrated here.
