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.

SimplySike (1524) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2013
30cl. Bottle. Poors cloudy amber with small white head. Aroma caramel, bread, peach, sweet, sugar. Taste soft bitter, caramel fruity sweet. Mouth-feel creamy. Awesome beer, amber in color, so much going on in the nose and taste.

ALLOVATE (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2013
At just on cool this one produced up all hazy, a russet amber in body with fine carbonation and a lapsing fluff of white. Peach, mango and orange rind poke out amongst notes of caramel, yeast and fresh baked white bread on the nose. VERY bready is the palate. Yeasty and heavy, and a little clumsy in flavour. Butterscotch and caramel in there as some caramelised citrus and shaded spice late. Similar swallow and aftertaste. Not much here to be enjoyed. The carbonation lifts it a little yet it is still too filling and cumbersome in the stomach. Pretty average! (corked 75cL, BBE 05/13, Mane Liquor, Belmont)

Frère Isidorus serait-il content ? Je vais employer une réponse de Normand … tout à fait adéquate pour la Hollande : « il ne serait pas mécontent... ». Bière pour le 125ème de la brasserie, avec moultes remous sur l’authenticité du produit trappiste... 125 ans de galère donc, célébrés par une nouvelle bière, ben oui, quand on s’appelle Bavaria, pourquoi pas ? Bière ambrée cuivrée. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes pas très nombreuses. Mousse qui retombe pour napper mais légère, sans structure crémeuse. Odeurs de prune, figue, poire, candi et châtaigne. Volume soyeux. 1ère bouche plutôt sur les épices, avec une arrière-bouche malt/houblon (où le houblon Perle cultivé sur place passe déjà très finement. 2ème bouche plus complète sur du malt avec une belle amertume. 3ème où on arrive à une bouche pleine et équilibrée. Arrière-bouche épicée fine et houblonnée. La longueur offre une belle ligne crescendo. L’alcool est très correct, il paraît plus fort que son titre (7,5 % abv, ce qui est modeste). La levure est douce, soyeuse, avec une pointe de sel, très adaptée. La finale se laisse déguster et nous offre une autre face donc de Koningshoeven. Manque juste un peu d’élan pour être au top, mais à 125 ans on est vieux... Merci Isidorus.

laiti (8513) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2013
33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 15.01.2010
Aroma is fruity with apricot, some citrus, spices and distant floral notes. Flavour is somewhat sweet with apricot, peaches, spices and some citrus. Also some alcohol on some sips. Good, but shouldn’t this be a Belgian strong with this ABV?

Ik ben liefhebber van triple bier, maar dit biertje is extra speciaal.door meer aroma en meer smaak. Dikke aanrader

3.8
RexTalionis (3799) - FINLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 03/2015. Pours amber in color with frothy off-white head. Dark fruitiness, yeasty spicyness and vanilla in aroma. Intruiging aroma. Brown sugar with sweet maltyness in taste. That bready toastiness is also there, this feels very well balanced over all. Bready malty and dark fruity sweet in finish. Really enjoyable to drink.

3.5
podey (638) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2013

3.3
Sdaniel90 (1096) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. Pours a deep copper/maple colour with a modest offwhite head. Aroma is rich in fruits, spices. Very "cellary", oak, very sweet.

3.6
GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 22, 2013
330mL from WF Virginia Beach. $3. Pours a low haze deep orange. Large, yellow foam erupts. Big swathes of lacing. Nose is sweet golden raisins, yeast, sweet dark fruits, fruit cake. Taste is spicy, mealy, baked apple, golden raisins, finishing with seltzer and butter. Palate is aerated, a tad chalky, mealy. Nice enough- more of a dessert beer.
