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

From the bottle pours a soft gold, great clarity with a tall small bubbled white head. Dry and crisp with a soft fruity finish. Hops provide a soft bitterness, hints of citrus pair nicely against the yeast esters. Great balance and oh so drinkable.

Strykzone (5816) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2009
Because of the explosive head patience is required while pouring this beer. Some solids on the final pour of the 750. Slightly cloudy honey gold color. Massive lacing acing is almost powdery. Aroma is honey, Simcoe hops, grass, and faint spice. While not a big aroma it is nice. This is a well hopped beer. They are citrus, grass, and floral. There is a distinct bitterness that lingers following each sip. It is somewhat acidic and has a peppery zing. Alcohol is not noticed until well into the bottle and it gets spicier as the beer warms. The hops combine to make a delightful beer. Very good.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Tasted at Ale Atlanta. Very hoppy aroma. Smells a little garlicky (in a good way) like Simcoe, but what do I know, the deScription says othe hops. Lots of bitterness. Nice.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Pours amber with a nice lingering white head. Smells of dry malt, spice, pepper, pine, some citrus, hints of sugar. Tastes grassy and earthy with some peppery splashes and a dry malty finish. One of their best beers.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JAN 3, 2009
C’ chi vede questa birra come troppo sbilanciata sull’amaro, io non sono molto d’accordo: cio, s, innegabile che esso sia l’elemento dominante per non necessariamente una menomazione dovuta alla funzione di preparazione dello zio paperone. Una birra aggressiva, che da bere tutta intera 75cl un po’ pesante per d grandi soddisfazioni soprattutto al naso per ho lo stomaco un po’ a rovescio causa antibiotici.

Enjoyit (3621) - Vadum, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2009
Hazy yellow of color with a white head. An aroma of spice, citrus and hops. A flavor of spice, hops and weak sweets.

jfm (1724) - Holbk, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle. Yeast and hop aroma. Hazy golden with a thick white head. Very nice full flavoured body with the typical belgian yeast flavors. Notes of citrus flavours. Very nice complex bitter palate. Very nice beer even if it is a little bit too carbonated for my taste.
