Look- Nice hazy brown color, fluffy white head that dissipates quickly with minimal lacing

Smell- Nice Belgian yeast character on the nose with bready malt

Taste- More of that Belgian yeast character and bready malt. Complex flavors in there

Mouthfeel- Medium body, crisp carbonation

Overall- A very good Trappist brew

Unusual offering from La Trappe, with a yeasty, sherry taste - decent beer, but not really one for me.

Pours a beautiful amber, copper color, with a decent, fizzy head.

Aromas of banana and toffeish malts are escaping from the glass.

Almost juicy banana along with cane sugar and a subtle hop dryness, including dough wheat, which blends well into the malty body of the beer. The hops compliment to the sweeter body of the beer, not only by adding balancing bitterness, but also by giving the malts a bready characteristic, including a somehow chewy aspect to the otherwise smooth mouthfeel. Finishes with a noteable, lively carbonation, which brings out honey and raisins. This gets accompanied by a supportive bitterness, which leaves the palate a little earlier than the malts do.

Isid'or pours a welcoming shade of golden brown, with a fizzy froth of vintage white sitting on top. The brew is somewhat murky, and more than adequately carbonated. From the nose, I am picking up lots of fruit esters, primarily plum... apple cinnamon, some phenols, and a bready malt character. The initial wave of flavor reveals a big molasses taste, with fig, moving onward to a very spicy, alcohol-laden ending, and a fair amount of sharp hops. The finish is smooth however, leaving a very wholesome grainy flavor on your tastebuds. Overall, very good, but could use some improvement in the balance department.
