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

Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht. The beer has a gold-yellow color and a light tinted large head, with a lot of bubbles. The aroma contains a lot of herbs, with tones of coriander. Further flowers and a hint of oranges. The taste is full and strong also dry with tones of walnuts. The finish is soft, with a nice bitterness from the hops. They’ve done a good job with this beer, it reminds me a little of triple beer.

Zarrach76 (32) - FRANCE - OCT 26, 2016
Belle couleur jaune paille / or légèrement troublée, avec une belle mousse blanche onctueuse qui persiste bien. Nez très frais : agrumes (citron vert, pamplemousse...), aromates (coriandre, persil, citronnelle...), épices (poivre, piment...), très beaux houblons aux arômes floraux sur des céréales maltées bien structurées et légèrement caramélisées. Bel équilibre et belle fraîcheur. La bouche est souple, ample, sans aucune sécheresse, avec une amertume franche qui s’efface rapidement pour laisser la place aux saveurs céréalières. La deuxième gorgée s’arrête plus sur les houblons, extrêmement savoureux et qui s’accrochent bien au palet. Bonne longueur avec le final sur les levures, le cuir et le bois. Les gorgées suivantes sont plus sur les sucres et le malt, malgré cette petite amertume qui traine toujours et qui laisse planer le mystère. Toujours la mousse qui s’accroche sur un demi-centimètre... Bière extrêmement plaisante, des houblons parfaitement dosés et qui distillent leurs arômes de manière graduelle, une réussite indéniable ! Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.
