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.

330ml bottle. Looks nice in the glass: Opaque, hazy, orange-amber hue with small amount of yeast sediment, large frothy light beige head quickly diminishes, sudsy lacing. Divine array of complex aromas: very fruity (sweet over-ripe fruits, apricot, banana esters, cherry) marzipan, moderately malty especially caramel, toffee, brown sugar, yeasty , spicy (clove especially) later on a hint of mint, yuuum. Tastes delicious: light heavy sweet though not cloying, moderately bitter. Enjoyable palate: medium body, oily slightly syrupy texture, light carbonation, dry warming spicy finish. Very very enjoyable.

darioklc (576) - Karlovac, CROATIA - SEP 24, 2015
Copper colour with an amber hue. Smell of sugary malts, brown sugar, toasted caramel, hints of boozy sweetness, and a touch of leafy greens. Taste also of sugary malts alongside hints of toffee, vanilla and oaky undertones. Some mild leafy green hops linger alongside some buttery yeast esthers. Lighter bodied, smooth and a touch of ABV heat on the finish. Really nice beer

Dogbrick (9824) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Bottle at Winking Lizard. The beer pours a hazy orange-amber color with a medium white head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruit, yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of raisins, caramel malt, earthy yeast and mild hops. The finish is fruity with a raisin and yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall
