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.

Taster from bottle at Binny’s prominent banana-esque ester in the nose. Another amber color with a good ring of foam around the edge. Mostly tastes like a straight Belgian ale. Esters contribute to a fullness around all surfaces of the palate, almost a bit more "chewy" that an average Belgian beer.

Bon produit dans l’ensemble... Les levures sont très présentes et particulières en fait. Je sens aussi la pore et les biscuits. J’ai bien aimé!

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.
