Brother Isidorus Laaber was the first brew master of the Onze Lieve Vrouw of Koningshoeven Abbey. In 1884, he began brewing Trappist beer, laying the foundation for the beer that we brew to this day. A wise decision for which many beer lovers are grateful to him. That makes brother Isidorus the founding father of La Trappe. In 2009, on occasion of the 125th anniversary of the Trappist brewery, brother Isidorus was honoured with his own beer: La Trappe Isid’or. The beer was received so well that it has been included in our standard collection.
Colour: Amber-coloured with a broken white head.
Aroma: A lovely combination of herbal, floral and fruity aromas.
Taste: La Trappe Isid’or was brewed in 2009 in honour of the 125th anniversary of Onze Lieve Vrouw van Koningshoeven Abbey. The harmonious taste starts as a fruity flavour and then shifts to malty caramel; a perfect balance between complexity and simplicity. The ale is named after brother Isidorus, the first master brewer of the abbey.
Aftertaste: Pleasantly bitter.
