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.

DerWeg (1562) - Toronto, Ontario, - JAN 3, 2013
Pale cear gold-orange with puffy white carbonation. Aroma a bit yeasty with strong notes of fruit and spice, lemon. Dry hop. Taste is sweet with a good finish of herbal hop dryness, and shows apricot pear and gold raisin, some lemon. Some peppery and bubblegum phenolics.

Batavi (143) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2015
La Trappe Isid'or uitgeschonken in La Trappe bokaal. Prachtig warm amberkleurig bier met kleine, lichtbeige fijne schuimkraag, die terugzakt tot een dunne schuimring. Zachte aroma's van karamel, butterscotch, noten, banketdeeg en gedroogd fruit als rozijnen en dadels. De smaak volgt de geur: behoorlijk complex, fruitig, licht zuur en bitter. Er zitten tonen in van karamel/toffee, speculaas, rijpe banaan, gedroogde vijgen, dadels en abrikozen, specerijen als vanille, kaneel, koriander, kardemom en kruidnagel, iets zurige afsluiting van rood fruit, aardbeien en bosbessen. Wat een complex en compleet smaakpallet! Het mondgevoel is een prikkelende carbonatie met een licht droge zachte verfijnde hopbitter. Oorspronkelijk gebrouwen voor het 125-jarig bestaan van de brouwerij, nu gelukkig een standaard bier in het basis assortiment bij La Trappe. Ontzettend lekker, staat voor mij zeer dicht bij de Quadrupel qua smaakbeleving en niveau. Ik had graag ook de Oak Aged versie van de Isid'or willen proberen, helaas is deze met pensioen. Wellicht komt deze ooit nog in een variant terug. Hoe dan ook deze Isid'or is een echte aanrader, op fles iets lekkerder dan op tap door de nagisting op de fles.

Icedwarf (716) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2015
Troebel bruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoet en licht bitter hoppig, heel licht zuur met sporen van bessen, caramel, vanille en anijs. Erg goed te drinken.

jamestulloch (2113) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle from Konzum, Dubrovnik. Hazy amber body with a thin beige head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of flat Coca-Cola, marzipan and fig. Flavour of cinnamon, caramel and brown sugar. Medium body with a smooth texture. Very fizzy. Rich and sweet but lacking depth and complexity.

75cl bottle, served in tulip. Pours hazy copper with small white lasting head. Soft candy aroma with some liquorice notes. The sweet flavour (not cloying) is balanced thanks to the hops, leading to a slightly dry lingering finish. Resembles fruity white wine, definitely very complex. Medium body, good carbonation. I got this for less than 6€...that means it is one of the cheapest good beers I’ve ever had.

jamaty (1234) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Precioso color entre miel y caramelo. Turbia. Espuma muy breve y película que queda en forma de natilla. Aroma agradable, escaso, ligeramente lupulaado. Alta carbonatacion, agradable, y bastante cuerpo. Excelente sabor marcado sobre todo por lúpulos herbales. Suculenta con un final algo alcoholico, bien equilibrado. Muy buena.
