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.

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

0,33 liter bottle. Hard to rate this one as it was served too cold an I normally don't like amber colored beers. But this one was nice.

75 cl bottle @ parents in law. Sweet, amber pour with some nice bitterness. Its not an average trappist, its more fruitier than others.

the sauger (131) - La Pocatiere, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2018
Bouteille de 750 ml. Couleur brune tirant vers l'ambrée avec un joli col beige. Arôme de céréales brûlées et de mélasse. Goût de caramel, de mélasse, de crème brûlée et sirop. Bonne bière, à ne pas boire trop vite, elle tombe sur le coeur.

Scrumpy369 (986) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 30, 2017
Bottle at pater marcus. Lightly hazy amber colour lasting beige head. Nose is malty roasted, faint alcohol. Taste is malty, honey, faint roasted notes in the background, light molasses. Smooth mouthfeel fast finish. Not groundbreaking but very well put together.

First: Nice, smooth, sweet, hoppy and malty, caramel trappist ale, very good. Drunk it aged. Brown in colour. Second: There are different vintage productions of this beer. Also with different labels on the other side of the bottle. My father drunk such different bottle. Was sparkling brilliant champagne-like colour ale, like trippel karmeliet even whiter, and what I ve heard from my father "it was unbelievable and remembered forever BEER!" I have such bottles, that are different and the difference is obvious in the label and in the taste, as my father told me. I will try it soon! And maybe will re-rate this! I think it depends on freshness too!

cattaneopapa (445) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2017
750ml bottle from IGA. Pours a hazy deep golden colour with one finger of white head. Sweet banana aroma with some toffee notes. Taste matches the aroma with a well balanced hoppy finish. Excellent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

p0urmeac0ld0ne (407) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - DEC 21, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2017 A great variant of the world famous La Trappe. It was the last beer of my recent trip to Belgium & The Netherlands and honestly, it was the perfect, fitting end to it all. Tasting notes are scarce as I was beyond knackered at this point, but I noted that this was amazing. May have to try it again at some point.
