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.

Amber with very small white head but a lot of bubbles. Sweet malts with big spices (koriander, cinnamon, nutmeg). Nice dried fruits and some apple, prunes and orange. Nice yeast profile and faint liquorice. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Decent stuff.

Genialne Belgijskie Ale. Delikatny owocowy na początku smak przechodzi w słodowy karmel. Godne polecenia. Brilliant Belgian Ale. Delicate fruity flavor at the beginning turns into caramel malt. Worth recommending.

Color: Ámbar con una capa de espuma color blanco roto. Aroma: Excelente combinación de aromas de especias, flores y frutas. Sabor: La Trappe Isid’or se creó en 2009 gebrouwen con motivo del 125 aniversario de la abadía de Nuestra Seńora de Koningshoeven. Su sabor armonioso es en primera instancia afrutado y se transforma a continuación en cebada y caramelo; un equilibrio perfecto entre lo sencillo y lo complejo. La cerveza recibe su nombre del hermano Isidoro, el primer maestro cervecero de la abadía. Regusto: Amargor agradable.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Marrom acobreada, com bastante espuma, de baixa duraçăo. Aroma de malte, păo, muita levedura, cravo. Na boca, é suave, boa carbonataçăo. Sabor proeminente do malte caramelado, com um final seco, notas frutadas, um pouco picante. Bom equilíbrio, ótima cerveja

Nagy, tartós habbal rendelkező, mély borostyán, rezesbe hajló színű sör. Komlós, fűszeres illat. Íze enyhén édeskés, fűszeres, halvány citrusos beütéssel. Enyhén kesernyés. Utóíze rövid, fűszeres, enyhén kesernyés, csak jelzés értékűen karamelles. Közepesen telt sör. Egy picit lehetne kevesebb szénsav. Átlag belga.
