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

Am I the only one that did not enjoy this brew? Light aroma. Confusing taste, strange bitterness. Extra carbonated. Not balanced. Perhaps the problem was my bottle, but I do not believe it was that.

Opaque, golden colour, nicely translucent. Frothy head. I smell pears, apples and mandarins, some citric sourness. Hints of honey. Taste is bitter-sour with a dry finish. Extremely fizzy, very dry and with a sour astringent finish.
