COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered
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.

3.8
Moretum (186) - Vienna, AUSTRIA, AUSTRIA - JAN 16, 2018
Trübe, dunkelgelbe Farbe mit ansehnlicher Schaumkrone. Frischer hefiger und malziger Geruch, die 5 verwendeten Hopfensorten sind ebenfalls deutlich zu spüren. Prägnantes Zusammenspiel von fruchtiger Hefe, süßem Malz und floralem Hopfen. Mittlerer Körper mit aktiver Kohlensäure. Komplex und spannend.

ebone1988 (2232) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2018
Bottle from Super Liquor IV in Ann Arbor. Aroma is caramel, nutty, booze, hops, yeast, old. Appearance is brownish amber, hazy, light tan head. Taste is fruit, caramel, hops, nutty, yeast, booze, old. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, boozy old fruit caramel aftertaste. Overall, I'm sure this is better fresh, but I'm pretty sure it's past its prime.
