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.

Poured from 11.2 fl oz bottle [aged 4 years]. Amber brown with beige head. Caramel malt and dried fruits, mild breadiness, hint of yeast and veg. Very smooth, light texture, slightly flat (probably from aging so long).

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2016 Denne trappist har et uklart rød-brunligt udseende med et medium hvidt skum. Øllen har en sød karamel og smager deraf med en bitterhed. Lidt tør fornemmelse efter. Medium karbonering.

kepano (267) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Pours a beautiful hazy chestnut brown with a creamy, fluffy head. The aroma leaps out, unhindered by the cold of my refrigerator. Full of brown sugar, Isid’or clearly takes after the Belgian tradition with a comforting bouquet of mellow, spicy aromas. La Trappe’s house blend of dried spice cake fruits brings its usual brightness: white raisins, apricots, pears. The rich, sticky banana bread undertone gives this beer a balanced smell that is delicious yet subtle. On the tongue, the flavor succumbs to an unexpectedly bitter trio of alcohol, burnt malts and sharp hops. Paired with a creamy, smelly cow cheese this pungency would be quite welcome, but on it’s own it overpowers the otherwise delicious undertones of ripe banana, clove and brown sugar that echo the nose. The aftertaste leaves a shard of oaky vanilla, orange peel and the warming sensation of brandy.

ALIBALI (1123) - Kiel, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2016
Eine Lage karamelige Würze weht durchs Näschen. Dubbelig süß. Dann geht’s unerwartet weiter, die Süße löst sich fast gänzlich auf und lässt Schaum, Getreide und Säure den Vortritt. Was dann passiert lässt sich schwer in Worte fassen, die einen Geschmack beschreiben sollen. Vielleicht ist es ein wenig so als wenn ein überreife Physalis in deinem Mund explodiert und dann der Saft langsam am Gaumen herabläuft. Huhi. Eine alkoholisch anmutende Hopfenbittere der erdigen Sorte, gesellt sich zum Abschlußtanz ebenfalls hinzu. Kleine Flasche direkt aus dem LA TRAPPE Klostershop somewhere in the Netherlands.

Gehbe (308) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - NOV 1, 2016
Deep amber with a huge beige head. Aroma of dried fruits, dates, caramel, spice, yeast, citrus. Sweetish taste immsdiately backed up by carbonation sourness and mild grapefruitty bitterness. High carbonation, medium body, smooth yet crispy. Wonderful, dangerous
