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.

Zilverenmaan (359) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2018
Bottle from AH in Brasschaat. Poors beautiful amber with light caramel head. Quite complex tasting: caramel, malty, some plums, yeast, fine hop bitterness. Distinctly sweet but sweetness tolerable.

Marstonlad (1040) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 19, 2018
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours brown with a big frothy head. The aroma features mostly sweet maltiness and ripe fruitiness; caramel, pear, chestnut, raisin. Taste is medium sweet and in the finish light bitter. Sweet maltiness dominates with strong yeasty fruitiness balancing; hoppiness is mild. Flavours of ripe fruitiness, caramel and candy sugar, fudge. The palate is medium to full bodied and smooth; creamy texture. Quite good: not too sweet and very enjoyable palate.

Bottle from drinkshop.sk Nice classic belgian ale, I do mind higher carbonation only. But besides that it's good, sweetish, yeasty with fruity notes in aftertaste.

Zilb (432) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - APR 7, 2018
UPDATED: APR 7, 2018 1 an et 5 mois avant DLC. Ambrée belle mousse à grosse bulle, tenue moyenne et carbo moyenne. Arôme malt toasté et un peu métallique. En bouche, du caramel et du malt légèrement torréfié. Finale amère qui contrebalance la douceur relative.

A good Belgian beer, for my soft mass, I like the most complex Belgian beer. The viag tasted with a bottle to share and liked the rest of the people.

svanke (35) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2018
Uit het La Trappe assortiment had ik er wat meer van verwacht. De commerciele omschrijving bevat termen als caramel en banaan. Ik kan het niet ontdekken. Meer licht fruitig en bitter, hoppig. Te hoppig naar mijn smaak. Gaat meer de kant op van een Palm.

Moretum (327) - Vienna, AUSTRIA, AUSTRIA - FEB 27, 2018
Eingetrübte orange bräunliche Farbe mit weißer Schaumkrone. Prägnant süßer, malziger, leicht fruchtiger Geruch. Geschmacklich süß malzig mit Karamell, leicht hefig, leicht fruchtig, spürbarer, aber gut eingebundener Alkohol. Große Süße mit leichter Bitterkeit, mittlerer Körper mit spürbarer Kohlensäure.

DraftDodger (1956) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2018
Copenhagen 24/2-2018. 75 cl bottle from Meny. Painting of extremely tired-looking Monk which I assume is Brother Isidorus on the label. Pours hazy amber with big white head. Settles as frothy, creamy 0,5 cm thick layer of foam. Substantial lacing. Aroma is pleasant and sweet. Caramel, light roastiness and tart lemonade streak. Soft carbonation and soft, creamy texture. Flavor is quite sweet with a little roastiness. Followed by light tart bitterness. Aftertaste is sweetish with a boozy touch. Pleasant enough - if not extraordinary - way to celebrate a 125 year birthday.
