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.

ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2008
Gift from Rickgordon. 75cl corked and caged bottle. Pours out in a hazy pale golden colour with a rich and lasting sticky white foam. Sweet aroma of corn, yellow apples, red apple-skins, orange-peels, white peer and alcohol. Dryish full flavour of oranges, banana, herbs, yeast and wet grass with undertones of salty licorice, lemon-zest, soap and soil. Dryish finish of oranges, grass and crackers. Despite it’s name; this is not a Belgian hop bomb, it’s leaning more to the Duvel territory
