Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Rotating

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.

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.

La Trappe Isid'or on tap at the Pour Taproom (Greenville, SC).
Pours with a hazy copper body and a semi-durable off-white head that leaves patterned lacing.
Aroma: sweet and fruity with hints of candied fruits, dark dried fruits and vanilla. Intriguing.
Flavor: Largely follows the aroma, with dark dried fruits dominating the complex flavor. About equally bitter and sweet. Nicely harmonious and interesting.
Mouthfeel: medium body with soft, medium carbonation.
Overall: refined and mild, with well hidden alcohol, this is beer worth seeking out and savoring.

Bottle. Slightly oxidised copper colour. Light haze. Frothy head.
Spicy aroma. Yeast and malt. Orange peel.
Earthy flavour. Banana and dried fruit. Bitter finish.
Decent body with a soft carbonation.
Not my favourite style but nevertheless quite tasty.
