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).

5 types of hops are used in this beer. 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.

Aroma of hops, dough, yeast and earth. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Taste mirrors aroma. WOW.

De couleur jaune paille voilée avec une mousse blanche abondante et invitante. Nez d’agrume et de citron, céréale et de caramel avec une touche floral! En bouche, miam, c’est bon! Les céréales domines, suivi de plusieurs épices. Une touche citronné, mielleuse et caramélisé. Les levures sont bien présente. Une finale longue et savoureuse, huileuse et sèche sur un fond de coriandre, de caramel et de céréale! Excellente! Cheers!

Bottle from Pivoteka. Finally! A beer from one of my favorite breweries that I’d managed to miss out on for years. Shared with heavy. Murky yellow body with a medium to big white head, thick. Fruity aroma, honey, jam, herbal hoppiness, dust, mint and grainy notes. Complex and pleasant. Dry, herbal, slightly citrusy sweetish herbal hoppy taste, notes of mint, slightly dusty. Very well hidden alcohol. A superb classic hop-driven Belgian blonde, without flaws and quite enjoyable. Exactly what I expected!

Pours very hazy gold with dense pile of foam. Aroma is hoppy. Taste is sweet with a hoppy bitter finish. Notes of light malt, lemon, bready yeast, spiciness, and loads of grassy hops. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Very Belgian, very hoppy. I think this might be a Belgian IPA. It doesn’t represent the best of either, but it does offer an unusual take on both.

Geel/goude kleur. Het bier heeft meer weg van een Belgian Strong Golden Ale dan een IPA. Een wat zurig aroma, met wat bloemige hop. Smaak is licht zurig met wat kruidigheid.

2016/11/21 - Pours a hazy, pale gold colour with a foamy, white head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is doughy yeast, orange, banana, clove, spices and grassy, lighty herbal hops. Taste follows nose; spicy/grassy/herbal hops, doughy yeast, orange, clove and some residual sugar. Mouthfeel is medium and slick with sharp carbonation and a long, dry, slightly herbal finish. Crisp and complex. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: cereal, herbs, dough-like yeast, spice; Appearance: golden, hazy, white foam ; Taste: light sweetness, medium bitterness ; full body, oily feel, average carbonation, long finish. Overall a very good and quite complex modern belgian beer, by a very good traditional brewery.

cattaneopapa (392) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2016
330ml bottle from LCBO. 8.0% alc./vol. Pours an opaque gold colour with one finger of lasting white head. Lacing clinging to the side of the glass. Aromas of hops, citrus, bananas, and a whiff of grapefruit. Taste matches the aroma with a dry and hoppy finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Oily on the palate. Excellent tripel.
