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.

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.

Fules (309) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 24, 2016
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.

Cette bière est une bière ambrée, légèrement sucrée avec une fine note de caramel. Elle développe une fine amertume et arrière goût fruité. Elle est brassée avec du houblon Perle cultivé sur place. Sa robe d'un ambre profond est surmontée d'une large couronne de mousse blonde. Le nez est riche et fleuri avec des notes de fruits. La bouche, douce, laisse percevoir des touches de caramel et d'épices. L'alcool procure un arrière-goût chaud et agréable, avec toujours ses notes de fruits.

mgajdaczewa (1476) - Katowice, POLAND - APR 29, 2016
W aromacie karmel, drewno, brzoskwinia, pieprz, przyprawy, nieźle. W smaku raczej wytrawne, karmelowo-tostowa słodowość, pikantne przyprawy, nieco pustawe. Raczej pijalne, mocno zdradliwe. Tylko przyzwoite.

schavuitje (32) - apeldoorn, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2016
een drinkbare ale,niet verkeerd,maar net iets te zoet vrij rijk aan fenolen, iets wat gauw verveeld en dan niet meer zo lekker smaakt, zeg maar smaakvervlakking

ForlornHope (356) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of malt and spice. Taste is sweet with a little balancing bitterness. Good malty background with a nice spicy fruitiness. Gentle bitter, dry finish. OK, but quite safe.
