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.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2011 RE-RATE: Pours a caramel tawny hue; head disperses quickly. Slight caramel and pear flavors dominate a rather subdued-tasting brew. Smooth, mellow, and luscious overall profile. Far from complex for a trappist or Belgian style ale, but I enjoyed the overall profile anyways. Easy drinking and yummy. Tastes like an ever so slightly "lighter" version of Chimay Bleu. Excellent.

Caged & corked bottle. Poured hazy brown color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sweet fruit and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Copper pour with a 1 finger, white head. The aroma is caramel, toffee, tree fruits, bubblegum, dry spices, and nuts. The flavor is dry and relatively clean with very mild belgian esters, some subtly sweet bread and caramel malt and a touch of nutty tree fruits on the finish. Dry, medium body wit lots of carbonation.

Draft at Gingerman NY. Hazy amber body with a frothy, off-white head, mostly lasting. The aroma is malty with notes of bread, caramel, cookie and toasted grain. Hints of herbal hops and earthy, musty smelling yeast. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Tasted much like a light version of a quad, a bit less of everything including complexity and body. Despite its simplicity, it is easy drinking and enjoyable.

Bottle. Amber color, and a very nice head that slowly settles. It leaves a rocky, foam-scape which I love. Patchy lacings on the glass. Aroma is sweet with notes of flowers, honey and spices. Taste starts of medium sweet and unfortunately thats about all that happens... little different tastes, but it’s decently balanced. Finish is, again, quite plain, but all in all it’s a good beer.

Bottle 33cl. A cloudy amber beer with head that goes quickly. Smell is sour like. Aroma is malty with fruity and spicy notes, well carbonated. Resine and honey notes, very oily and sweet, some herbal notes too, very special brew not too malty.

Pours into a duvel chalice with huge yeasty off-white head and a dark amber body filled with carbonation. Aroma is orange peels, lemon, coriander, caramel. Taste is smooth malt with a kick of hops and coriander for an aftertaste, nice finish. It’s a very good trappist.
