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.

Dark brown, light reddish in color. Taste is sweet, malty, with a complex spicy finish. Very aromatic, with a very smooth and excellent taste profile. Gotta have for any Belgian strong ale fan.

Eerste indruk is dat ik het biertje bij de eerste slok eigenlijk te zwaar voor een Belgische Ale vindt. Maar goed het biertje ruikt vrij fruitig en kruidig het is vrij troebel en heeft een mooie donkere amber kleur Gemiddeld koolzuur die voor een fijne schuimkraag zorgt. Hij proeft zoals gezegd voor mij net iets te sterk. Het biertje zelf proeft zoet, fruitig maar vooral kruidig met tonen van karamel en rozijn maar heeft ook een kleine bittertje op het eind. Aan de ene kant een biertje dat boven het gerstveld uit wilt steken maar heeft een aantal scherpe randjes zodat ik hem niet hoger kan waarderen. Gelukkig ik heb er nog een paar liggen die laat nog een jaartje rijpen en dan proef ik opnieuw.

La Trappe makes unfailingly tasty and approachable Trappist beers, and Isid’or is every bit as authentic as an abbey ale you could pick up in Belgium. Its appearance is chestnut brown and shows an amber shade when placed in front of direct light. Aromas are malty, spicy and fruity. There’s wheat beer characteristics: banana and clove. There’s also commonplace Belgian Ale yeast notes: caramel, dark bread, and dark fruits. Fat, velvety mouthfeel. A bit of earthy hop bitterness on the finish. Excellent stuff.

Aroma, bubblegum, banana ,cinnamon, raisins dark fruits. Appearance, three or four finger thick creamy head a copper amber color. Taste, somewhat happy with mild bitterness After warming the taste developed to more Rye or grain taste. Palate, carbonated and lively. Overall, a pretty good beer seems to be stuck somewhere between a triple and a quad.
