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

Senka (1068) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 27, 2016
33cl Pours pale yellow, like a simple eastern european lager. Either a strong single hop aroma, or a smooth balance of multiple hops. Pleasant and uniform. Fair malty base, and strong bitterness. Feels like a homebrew, and has some powderness to it. I do not know why - there is no sediment. Feels like water used is rather hard. In a blind tasting, I would consider this to be a fortified lager, with a strong malty base. It Smooth textured, medium carbonation, gentle and easy finish for the ABV. Good to try, as it is not a typical BSA in my opinion.

Vells (1630) - Rga, Latvija, LATVIA - JUL 24, 2016
Lovely maltiness, toasted caramel, candy sugar, somewhat berries, light herbal, citrusy hop impact this time doesnt ruin Belgian. Moderate sweet with moderate to light bitterness. Decent, solid brew

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle - Slightly hazy deep golden colour, durable large frothy white head. Flowery and herbal hop nose alongside the typical belgian fruity estery aromas. Taste is well balanced between belgian sweetish malty character and subtle classic continental hop features. Medium body, medium carbonation, silky mouthfeel, decent hoppy finish, alcohol is well hidden. Nice, well rounded hoppy belgian strong ale.

Xstream (242) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2016 Troebel gouden kleur met goede kleverige kop schuim. Geur is hoppig en fruitig. In de mond is t wat alcoholisch, fruit en zoetig. De finish is hoppig maar nog wel in balans, niet zoals een IPA. Fruitig en pittig hop biertje. Wel lekker, maar ik ben geen hophead.
