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.

Gription79 (2293) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Poured from a 750ml bottle. There is a big caramel malt character, a soft toffee note in the finished. Loads of malty sweetness. Some fruity alcohol flavors.

0,33 pullo@ OPP. Hiukan samea, meripihkan punaruskea. Tuoksussa makeaa mallasta, sherrya, kukkaisuutta, hunajaa, ehkä mesimarjaakin. Maussa pehmeää mallasta, hitunen paahteisuuden lämpöä, humalaa, alkoholia (ei liikaa), käynyttä hedelmää.

Ik weet niet wat het is met dit bier maar ik vindt het helemaal niet lekker. Ligt wel mooi in het glas.

Bottle shared by family. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, dark fruit, raisins, banana, yeast, some spices, decent but doesn’t pop like the oak aged quad series.

AtronSeige (676) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 21, 2014
Aroma: medium, banana bread. Light soft alcohol Appearance: body, hazy, ember. Head, off-white, good retention. Flavour: malt: bready, lingering. Yeast: med banana, lingering. Alcohol, high peppery, lingers. Hops: light, spicy. Mouthfeel: medium warming, very high caronation, high carbonic sting. Medium-light body. Overall: I expected more complexity. Good, but too much sting and warming. 330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre. 18b. Belgian dubbel

Simonsen (700) - NORWAY - OCT 20, 2014
Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Lys brun, uklar farget, lite karbonert med en tynn hvit skumtopp. Smaker hvete, karamell,frukt og gjær. Noe funk og sødme. En ganske god belgian ale

eduardovl (915) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in my favorite Grimbergen’s chalice. A: Beautiful amber color. A bit cloudy. Huge two fingers head which dissipates quite quickly leaving a bit of lacings S: Sweet malts. Sweet bubblegum and a bit of yeasts in the end T: Sweet malts is very evident, caramel and yeasts. Bitter end M: Medium body and molasses. Medium carbonation D: Good La Trappe, IMHO, is the "less good" Trappist. However, still a quite good beer. [ BA Review @ 4/11/2010 ]
