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.

50 IBU / 18.6 Plato

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.

Japalo (1874) - DENMARK - JUN 9, 2016
[email protected] Two finger foam. Orange haze. Peppery Spice notes. Dry some alcoholic mouthfeel. Love the hop alcoholic balance. The malts subdue the yeast and hops. Still nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

imdownthepub (14209) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Bottled, 330ml from Cafe Rose Red, Bruges, West Flanders, Belgium. Hazy gold with white pillowed head. There is a heavy Belgian yeasty note to this right from the start, pear drops, banana essence, its like a combo of wit and blonde. Herbal notes later with a candied sweetness. All in all okay if a little too eager.

dnicolaescu (2441) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 9, 2016
BOTTLE 33 CL. Hazy golden, creamy ivory head. Big apricot aroma - both fresh and dried, some corn? The taste has a pretty big honey pale sweetness with notes of tart fruit, balanced and died up by a pretty strong bitterness with quite a bit of alcohol in it. Some corn grits here and there. Quite nice, maybe too boozy.

wedgie9 (2697) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Tasted on 5/4/16 from a capped 330mL bottle purchased at Frugal. Pours hazy pale orange with a thick, smooth white head that slowly recedes to thick lace. The nose is sweet candi and honey malt with some light bread, a touch of earthy yeast, and very light hops spice. The flavor is a fairly sweet honey attack, moving to some light bitterness and the same yeasty character from the nose, and finishing with more candi sugar sweetness. The body is nearly full with very lively carbonation, and a medium honeyed and lightly bitter finish.

Draft at the Quad Alehouse for my birthday. Decent head. Aroma were classic spicy/fruity Belgian. Hoppy flavors gave it that difference they were looking for. No bad

lello4ever (916) - ITALY - APR 28, 2016
UPDATED: APR 28, 2016 Bionda, torbida, bel cappello di schiuma bianca pannosa. Aroma interessante di lievito, agrumi, banana e frutta. Carbonazione medio alta. Bevuta per nulla pesante nonostante un buon grado alcolico. Malto, frutta, una discreta nota amara su una base dolce. Piacevole.
