La Trappe Isid'or is an amber colored top fermentation beer, re-fermented in the bottle. It was brewed for the first time in 2009 to celebrate the brewery’s 125th anniversary. It was supposed to be a one-time brew, but because of its huge success the monks decided to continue brewing the beer.
It is named after the monastery’s first ever brewer, Brother Isidor. La Trappe Isid'or is brewed with Perle hops that are grown at the monastery. It is a lightly sweet beer with notes of caramel. It has a bitter flavor, a fruity aftertaste and an alcohol content of 7.5%.
Serving temperature: 6-8 °C
The La Trappe beers are the only ones in this shop who aren’t Belgian, they are brewed in the South of the Netherlands in Trappist abbey ‘De Koningshoeven’. What makes the La Trappe beers stand out between the other Trappist beers is that they also brew beers that fall outside the normal Trappist beer categories. They have amongst others a La Trappe Bockbier, a dark red beer style that is very popular in the Netherlands, as well as a La Trappe White Beer. Although white beers are quite common in Belgium and the Netherlands, this is the very first white Trappist.
