Notes / 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.

The beer pours out a hazy dark golden/brown color, with a thin off white colored head------------- the aromas are of raisins, Carmel, spice, sweet malt and grass/floral----------- the flavors are of plums, raisins, dried cherries and spice, the beer has a high amount of carbonation giving it a thinner mouthfeel with a slightly bitter finish--------------- overall this beer was nice, it's your typical Belgian strong ale with sweet dark fruits, spice and grassy aromas

My first trappist and it was amazing. Nice amber color, wonderful smell. Absolutely no clue of its alcohol content. Kinda warms you up also. Would I buy this again? Yes.

Pours a murky rust colour, an inch of foam to start, shrinks fairly quickly.

Smells of caramel malt, dried fruit, cloves, brown or candi sugar; I can't make up my mind.

Fruity taste, spice of cloves, brown sugar, malty but light sweetness. Light bitterness.

Medium body with prickly carbonation.

Nice beer.

Drank at Delirium Café, Brussels.


Quick notes: Pours a beautiful yellow to orange body. Aroma was strong of belgian yeast. Taste is more close to a tripel then a BSPA. Very interesting La Trappe beer.

Pours almost opaque caramel color with abundant head and thick lacing into a 4oz glass. Smells of burnt sugar and spices, maybe cinnamon, clove, and honey? Taste is caramel malts, clove, faint other spices. Feel is thick and smooth. As I keep drinking, a slight apple character comes out. Another absolute winner from this brewery.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a glossy semi-dark amber color. Sustaining finger’s worth of glossy white head dissipated in a nice slow fashion. Slim lacing. The aroma takes on all of the normal Belgian sweet to spicy bready/yeasty goodness. Sly grassy sweetness with Belgian sweet sugar embalms it all together nicely. The flavor takes all of the previously mentioned aromas to ride into a slight sticky Belgian sweet sugar aftertaste. Slight sticky sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable to sipping feel to it. Overall, pretty nice for a Belgian Strong Pale ale.
