COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Complex aroma. Light malty scents of toasted grains, yeasty scents of dough, soap, banana bubble gum and cherry. Huge, long lasting, off white head with excellent lacing. Poured carefully, bottle conditioned clear, medium amber orange body. Initial, light bitter sweet flavour and medium, bitter sweet finish of average duration. Light to medium body. Watery texture with lively carbonation and a dry chalky finish. Overall, a very nice beer!

Bière ambrée, trouble, très effervescence, au mince col de mousse crémeux. En bouche, la levure «gomme baloune» que je décèle dans la plupart des bières de Koningshoeven est plus subtile; elle se fond dans un joyeux équilibre entre des saveurs de caramel amer, de miel et un arrière-goût à la fois herbacé et fruité. Un produit étonnant.

Une levure très fruitée se dégage du premier nez. des notes de banane, de gomme balloune, de clou de girofle, de vanille. Superbe complexité. Également, de légères notes de pain s’immiscent en arrière plan. Une belle mousse effervescente vient couronner un liquide ambré légèrement voilé. La mousse s’attarde et persiste malgré son effervescence. L’attaque touche à tous les aspects du gustatif; autant l’acidité de la levure lui confère un caractère puissant, autant la délicatesse des fruits élargit sa palette de saveurs. Son effervescence active ajoute à son houblonnage discrètement mentholé et herbacé. La palette est très large. On y perçoit de la banane, du bonbon, des fruits tropicaux, du clou de girofle, de la gomme balloune, des herbes et de la menthe. Cette bière évolue à tous les niveaux. Dans la pure tradition du brassage trappiste.
