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).
Kind of hops: 4 types of hops are used: Belgian Golding, German spalt, French tradition and saaz. 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.
