Bierbrouwerij De Koningshoeven B.V.

Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

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.

An orange color with a thin head. Some yeast on the bottom of the bottle.

Smell is fruity and has a light caramel notes.

Taste is sweet and fruity and has a heavy malt base. A very light hoppiness. Mouthfeel is sweet and sticky. This appears to be a light version of the quadrupel and is a nice addition to the La Trappe range.

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

Thanks to John for the bottle.

Pours a cloudy caramel body.

Aromas of bubblegum and caramel.

Sweet caramel turns to grape bubblegum, apricot, and spicy yeast.

Medium to full body. Not much on the finish.

Not bad, but I think we have come to expect more from Trappist brewers.
