Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

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.

Reddish-light brown in color with orange hues. Off-white two finger head with medium retention.

Rich, warm aromas of molasses, dark brown sugar, ginger bread cookies, christmas pudding and pumpernickel bread. Brett actually dries the sweet tones out slightly.

The richness continues on the palate with caramel, molasses, black bread, gingersnaps, wet animal fur and orange marmalade. Black fruit notes and allspice on the finish.

Medium+ body with a rich mouthfeel. Full bitterness on the mid-palate and finish balance the richness in the beer. Nice, long finish.
