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.

angelkostvo (1225) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 25, 2012
Amber color with nice off white head. Aroma is fresh, citrus, grapefruit, floral... quite refreshing. Let;s taste it.... it’s smooth, really nice body you can feel the alcohol but in a good way, warming you, also it tastes fruity and sweet. Nice brew, quite nice.

Theydon_Bois (18919) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle at home (Noel Cuvelier) 23/10/12. Pours a slightly obscured dark amber with a big foamy off white head that soon collapses to the edges and forms a pond on top of the glass. Nose comprises Belgian yeast, toffee, dark fruits, banoffee pie, cloves and a little other spices. Tastes of toffee, sweet sugars, candied fruits, spice. Medium bodied with light prickly carbonation leading to a sweet finish with a touch of booze.

sfuen03 (362) - Barcelona, SPAIN - OCT 20, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2012 Off-white fizzy head with very good lacing. Intense, fresh aroma. Light body, fizzi carbonation, a little bit spicy. Long bitter finish. More hoppy taste that the usual for a belgian beer.

Hammy78 (972) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle picked up at the Dundas Ontario LCBO. Pours a cloudy orangy copper colour, with a fast dissapating head. Nose is spicy, caramel and a touch of malt. Tastes sweet, bitter, malty and a dry bitter. Good stuff.

herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle. Pretty hazy copper pour, delicate tan head. Yeasty, grassy aroma. A litte brown sugar, floral and alcohol. Medium and sticky, it’s not complex. Sweet with a litte boozy, slightly bitter finish. Pleasant but not a ton of character.

jookos (6421) - FINLAND - OCT 17, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2012 Rerate: From bottle now, previous was draught. The candi and yeast is there, but I didn’t react to the nuttyness I’m finding now. Must have been part of the oak I was rambling about.

A very dark, musty trappist. Hazelnuts along with the usual candi, yeast. Some vanilla.
original rating: (7.4.7.3.12=3,3) Amber belge with oak woody notes. Candi, belge yeast. The works. Not as smooth as a double, more like a quad wo the body. Ok, but not my fav.

Listigovers (1101) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2012
Has a great funky smell, but the rest of the beer falls short. It is quite acidic, which is something I adore in a good gueuze, but doesn’t really work in this sort of bitter sort of sour combination. The body is also very thin, so the flavours just sort of run into each other without much thought. The finish is sort of watery with a slight dryness, but nothing like the dryness I’d hope for from a beer with flavours like this. I think it’s a few inches away from being wonderful, but it misses the mark. Looks good though.

reebtogi (6204) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2012
750ml corked bottle pours a pale amber color with a 2 finger off-white head that retains well and leaves some very nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with some yeast and earthy notes. Taste is a mild raisiny sweetness with some yeast and an earthy hop bitterness with a dry finish. Medium bodied with abundant carbonation leaving a pleasant tingle on the palate. A very well done Belgian ale which is highly recommended to try.

Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Aroma is not strong but overall sweet and yeasty. Pours a coudy deep copper with a non-sustaining white head and minimal lacing. Taste is slightly sweet, with hints of bananas and spice. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, very subtle and smooth. Wild drink again.
