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

Really good strong Belgian beer: alcohol is nicely masked around fruity notes with hints of coriander. Aftertaste is just perfect, not too bitter, but still full of hops. Looks and feels like it should!

Nate (4200) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2016
On tap at Brunzies (5/1/15). Resiny dank hop and tropical fruit aromas, sweet and musky. Very nice aroma. Medium amber golden clear with thin head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts with tropical fruit sweetness, apricots and mango. Resinous and sharp dank quality to it, too. Big sweetness followed by bit bitterness. Big flavorful bitter finish and sweet bitter after.

Fine aroma banana, fenol. Clear pale, with a stable head. Fine carbonisation, coriander and banaan are the first you taste. Second taste is slight hopbitter, alcohol and a soft sweet and smoky ending. Well balanced, fizzy carbonation witch leaves a long aftertaste.

Konfuzzi (17) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2016
Kein Bier für mich. Schmeckt mir zu sehr nach Weizen (obwohl keines drin ist :-) ). Farbe ist heller als Bernstein, eher orange, Gold. Stark prickelnd, sehr viel Schaum beim Eingießen ins Glas. Geruch: fruchtig, Äpfel.
