330ml bottle into a goblet.

Pours a slightly hazy dark brown although I did let a bit of sediment slip into the glass. Solid one finger off-white head with very good head retention. Lacing was just so-so.

Aroma is extremely fruity, even more so than other BPA's I have had. There is almost a tropical character to it but quite a bit of cherry thrown in. Also some peach and peppery spice. Quite nice.

The flavor carries over the fruitiness from the aroma with peach and cherry along with quite a bit of pepper and coriander. Nice bready malt in the background that plays nicely with the fruit. Very dry mouthfeel with abundant prickly carbonation.

Overall, this is a very good BPA although it fall a bit short of being outstanding. I love the fruitiness but the malt could be turned up a bit. All in all, though, a good beer.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of June 2014. Purchased from a Belgian supermarket while on a trip quite a while back. The label states that this beer was brewed to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the brewery and is named after brother Isidorus, the first brewer.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A deep coppery-amber hue with faint haze and good carbonation. Yields a decent head of creamy off-white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a thin surface layer. Aroma of caramel malt with hints of sherry, oxidation, fruity yeast esters, mild brown sugar, a twinge of marzipan and faint stewed leaves. Slightly vinous in character. OK but probably a bit old.

Tastes of caramel malt with a sweet oxidised character and a lingering finish. Notes of fruity yeast esters, subtle apricot, mild sherry, a hint of marzipan, light brown sugar, caramel, faint earthiness and stewed leaves. A twinge of cardboard in the background, followed by a delicate bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with effervescent carbonation and good body. Faintly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of sweet sherry, caramel and yeast esters.

Not bad, though it's pretty obvious that I've held onto this bottle for too long. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are reminiscent of fruity yeast notes and sherry. Somewhat oxidised and with little bitterness. Body is OK. Goes down alright, but I reckon this is overly oxidised and not as the brewer intended. I may re-review in the future if I have the chance. Worth sampling if you come across it.
