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

bought at LCBO, Ottawa Pours pale hazy with beautiful thick white head the overall picture in my glass reminds me of a whit or Weiss. aroma shows signs of citrus texture is quite thin with a fizzy carbonation, which kind of turns me off for a 8% belgium beer. not my favourite, but still a great pick for the price.

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.
