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.

Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht. The beer has a gold-yellow color and a light tinted large head, with a lot of bubbles. The aroma contains a lot of herbs, with tones of coriander. Further flowers and a hint of oranges. The taste is full and strong also dry with tones of walnuts. The finish is soft, with a nice bitterness from the hops. They’ve done a good job with this beer, it reminds me a little of triple beer.

Very good distinctive hoppy flavor, which gives this Belgian Ale a new aspect, that became much more popular lately. Which I highly appreciate.

JaKeAFC (1265) - ITALY - AUG 25, 2017
Yellow color, hazed, big white creamy head, infinitely persistent. Big hoppy smell. Aroma of fresh pale malts and lots of resiny hops, very ’green’. Spiced yeast, green apple, some cider and white wine, likely champenoise fermentation? Very tasty, citrus and tart still maintaining a nice sweetness and strong bitterness. Finish quite dry, perfumed, with solvent tones as abv is quite high, but not distracting. Very very nice, crisp, sparkling, liked a lot.

DavidSvinth (217) - DENMARK - AUG 17, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2017 Flot, stabilt skum. Diskret humle i næsen. Kraft og krop som en belgisk øl, men mere bitter. En humlet udgave af en Belgian Strong Ale.

ha1ag (946) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2017
Bottled from local supermarket in Mestreech. Color is golden, with thick fluffy head. Sedimented. Hoppy nose. Aroma is yeasty and fruity with some hops. The flavour is sweet spicey with a dry yeasty and finish. Alcohol comes through too much.
