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 amber, fizzy off white head. Aroma is clovy, full of Belgian yeast character with a bit of candi sugar, like a tripel.
Nice body, classic Belgian notes of clove, herbs, sugar. Hints of banana esters. Spritzy on the tongue. Austere bitterness on the finish.

Bottle. Amber coloured pour with a medium beige head. Malty, fruity aroma. Caramel, fruity, yeasty, little sweet, watery taste. For some reason I was expecting this to be a great beer but it was rather poor, I love their Quadrupel though.
