Brouwerij Het Anker
Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor
Brewery: Brouwerij Het Anker
Style: Belgian Strong Ale
Format: 330ml Bottle
The name Hopsinjoor is a play on words, derived from the word Opsinjoor and use of 5 different hops in the brew. Opsinjoor refers to a character from Belgium history; a short fat man with a moustache, whose is eternally a drunkard. As punishment for his antics, he is thrown by his neighbours on a big sheet in the air and caught again. In remembrance of this charcter, every year the people from the town of Mechelen, in Belgium, gather to throw an Opsinjoor doll into the air using a canvas sheet and then catch it again.
The ale has a gentle taste with a slightly bitter finish and strong hop aromas. The beer is bottled unfiltered in order to preserve the bitterness of the hop as much as possible.
