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

Like a champagne beer, its imposible to open or pour without the foam spilling over. Very smooth and silky carbonation though, Flavors are citrusy and lightly hoppy. The aroma is bandaid and soap. The finish however is bready and earthy with a typical Carolus Green apple hint to it. Alcohol not noticeable.

Gurthnar (3171) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle. Almost clear yellow colour, lots of stable head. Quite tame and balanced aroma, spicy. Taste also nicely balanced. Relatively high bitterness, balanced with spicy peppery notes. Good, not groundbreaking though.

Paladares (102) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 10, 2015
Botella. Ámbar claro turbio. Bien de espuma. Aroma muy frutal. Cítrico y algo de fruta tropical. En boca, fabulosa. Una explosión de aromas y sabores. Floral, clavo, frutal... es difícil apreciar sabores concretos pero el conjunto es redondo y equilibrado. Un toque final amargo completa una cerveza excepcional. De las mejores que he probado hasta ahora.

Je suis un amateur de la poivrée Carolus Tripel (qui est de retour au Québec, yeah!) alors je suis très curieux de goûter une de ses semblables... C’est plus délicat, plus léger que la tripel. Il y a malheureusement moins de profondeur aussi! Ça semble vouloir tirer sur la fraicheur du citron et le corps approuve en étant bien vivant. Malgré la description, les houblons ne sont par contre vraiment pas si présents que ça. Je ne détecte que très peu du fruité ou de l’amertûme en général procurés par ceux-çi... Peut-être faut-il boire cette bière très fraiche? Bref, rien de vraiment fantastique, mais quand même une bière raffraichissante que je boierais régulièrement sans problème.
