COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Origin: Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor completes the taste pallet of the gamma Carolus-beers. Name: "Hopsinjoor" is a wordplay to for one thing the several hops which were used, and on the other hand the typical character of Mechelen of Gouden Carolus: the figure "opsinjoor" is intertwined with the history of Mechelen (see: www.opsinjoorke.be/Opsinjoorke/opsinjoor.htm). Kind of hops: 4 types of hops are used: Golding, Spalt, Hallertau and Saaz. These hops were fractioned at several times in the cooking process in order to keep a maximum of aroma. Regarding to taste we can say that the beer has a gentle, but nevertheless bitter aftertaste. Gold-yellow colour. Hoppy aroma. 50 IBU / 18.6 Plato

Based on the name, I expected a way hoppier beer. Not bad, just not entirely what I expected.

17-12-2015 Delft Mitra Niet zo lekker als de andere bieren van Gouden Carolus maar zeker de moeite waard. Mooie donkergoud kleur met redelijk veel schuim. Heeft een sterk bittere nasmaak die (iets te) lang doorprikkelt in je gehemelte door hoge koolzuurgehalte. Desondanks toch nog vrij frisse smaak (citrus).

Hopverdju (210) - BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2015
Troebelblond bier met rijke witte blijvende schuimkraag. Lichte citrusgeur. Frisse smaak, wat citrus en licht hoppig. Aangenaam bitterige afdronk.
