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.

fletchfighters (1449) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2012
A-- Poured an almost iced tea color, golden hazy brown. One finger slightly off white head that quickly faded away. A little bit of lacing on the sides of the glass. Good, responsive head retention to this. S-- A lot of spices in the nose. Also get some orange and a touch of vanilla. Spices a very dominant. T-- Once again a lot of spices with some orange, grapefruit and vanilla. Different was my first thought. M-- Quite carbonated and lighter body feel. Really reminds me of say marmalade. Candied orange peel, candied grapefruit and such. Very prickly on the tongue. Hops are very floral and have a big vanilla blossom feel and taste to this. Lots of vanilla and in some ways reminds me more of vanilla extract. D-- Different pale ale to me. Vanilla is interesting and quite different. Gets sweeter as it warms up and the alcohol becomes more obvious as well.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 Smell of old, dried toffee, dust, dark malts, and yeasty esters. It’s a quaint aroma, no doubt. The palate is medium to thin; a bit watery, but correctly carbonated, and overall quite serviceable. The taste is sweet and smooth, with a strong caramel character and yeast notes showing up. A mundane pleasure, but one of the better ones, I’d say.

Wolfbass (1128) - Firenze, ITALY - AUG 11, 2012
L’aspetto è davvero notevole, con uno splendido colore ambrato ed una fine schiuma a coprirlo. Al naso principalmente caramello, ed anche in bocca la parte più dolce domina la bevuta, ma in modo equilibrato così la beva scorre molto bene.

Vignale (3508) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2012
En flaska som har några år på nacken. Bärnstensfärgad, klar men jästfällning i bottensatsen. Doft av honung och söta torkade frukter som äpplen och aprikoser. Kroppen har mycket kraft kvar. Apelsinskalsbeska som är markerad, honung, jästiga estrar, mogen banan. Fin balans och kraftiga smaker. Riktigt god.

kidmartinek (4884) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Cloudy light brown color. White head shrinks to nil quickly. Aroma’s of brown sugar and maple with a little characteristic Belgian yeast. Taste is of dark, syrupy sugars and fruity esters. It’s slightly alcoholic and therefore harsh on the palate.

Boutip (6097) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle: Poured a deep caramel color ale with a huge foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of Belgian caramel malt with some sweet notes and some light fruity ester. Taste is also a mix between some Belgian caramel malt with some good notes of fruity ester and a balanced level of sweetness. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed with nice level of complexity and great level of drinkability.

ThirstyBird (2683) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2012
Pours hazy reddish brown with a lofty light tan head. Smell is caramel, fruit, yeast - smells rich and delish! Tastes as it smells with a hint of a sour twang to it which is nice finishes a bit dry. Medium body with active carbonation which is finely structured. I liked this beer the first time I tried it a couple of years ago and i still do.
