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.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 33cl bottle, Cellier des Arcades, Arras. Cloudy amber, small beige head. Aroma: fresh apples, pears, peach, yeast, Belgian malts, nice. Flavour: Very sweet, malty, candi sugar, yeasty esters as mentioned above. Flows quite well and the sweetness is in check. Very ambiguous style-wise, which is kind of cool. I couldn’t resist the bottle, what with such a handsome fellow looking blankly to his left.

Nice amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel. Taste is lightly sweetened with a soft bitter citric sour to it. Very balanced and easy to drink. Great tasting beer!

Not a lot of head. Apple juice cherry oak smell. Cherry taste with some yeast very smooth, very little bitter. Different, but wouldnt pay 20 bucks for another bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Candied plums and currants on the nose. Some black grapes as well. Clear garnet, thin yellow head. Candied plum flavor, treacle under current. Mouthfeel is a tad harsh. Sweet molassesesque malty notes become more apparent upon warming. I think I would much prefer this from a bottle so that I can control both the vigor of the pour and the temperature of the liquid.. This definitely shines at cellar temperature. Very tasty.

At Map Room. Decent easy drinking Belgian ale. Some candy sugar flavor which works but almost tends to be too sweet. Serving:Tap

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.

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.
