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.

A very heavy beer. It has a grape flavor associated with it that makes it seem like a wine. Not a fan.

Butelka, warka do 06-2016. piana dosc wysoka i poczatkowo ladna, pozniej sie szybko dosc redukuje, Kolor miedziany, mocna opalizacja. Aromaty owocow ciemnych, stosunkowo malo drozdzowo, slody dosc ziemiste, troche karmelu... podstawowa roznica w stosunku do blonde to owocowosc w strone wisni, sliwek, jablek zamiast brzoskwini, banana. W zapachu to takie skrzyzowanie blonde i dubla. Smak jeszcze bardziej owocowy niz aromat, troche przypraw, drozdzy belgijskich, karmelu. rownowaga w strone slodyczy, choc i nutki kwaskowate sie pojawiaja. czuc tez goryczke, wyzsza niz w blonde, trawiasta. alkohol dobrze schowany. w ustach umiarkowanie pelne, zywe wysycenie, odczuwalne na jezyku. bardzo dobre piwo.

ManvsCity (182) - Redmond, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle - corked and caged. Lightly carbonated amber body with quickly disappearing white head. Faint caramel and stone fruit aroma. Dry, slightly sour, oak overshadowing most other flavors. Lots of oak tannins in the finish. Would dump it, except that it cost a lot of $$. Expected a better tasting Belgian ale with more character.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Klar röd bärnstensfärgad vätska med lågt vitt skum. Doftar belgo och karamell. Sött. Smaken går åt samma håll. Små stickiga bubblor. Välsmakande.

750ml brown bottle, corked. Hazy orange with a nice compact white head. Nose has raisin and caramel. Tate has some fruity notes, yeast, caramel, raisins. Yeasty finish, maybe a touch of hops. Lighter mouthfeel than expected. Overall a good stronger Belgian ale, pretty approachable.

artemb (15) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - FEB 1, 2015
Cloudy with many small particles, Aroma: spicy alcohol, caramel, dried figs. Light sourness and bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall this is a strong ale with dried fruits, caramel and light spice notes. Not bad.
