Brewed by Huyghe for Jopen (www.jopen.nl). Until 2006 brewed by Van Steenberge. Jopen Adriaan is made as a lighter version of a gruit beer. Gruit is a medieval herbal mixture of which sweet gale is the most characteristic. Brewers used this gruit before hops were introduced. The beer contains 5% alcohol and is also brewed with herbs, but different ones than those used in Koyt. The herbs used in Adriaan contribute in the refreshing taste of Adriaan. The light taste of Adriaan can be compared with Wheat beers (Witbier) as those are made in Belgium and Holland.

Marstonlad (730) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy straw yellow with a little white head. The aroma features fresh citrusy fruitiness - lemon and orange - with pale, grainy and wheaty maltiness and a touch of coriander - fruity rather than spicy overall. Taste is dryish and very easily drinkable; not much bitterness or sourness and plenty of fruitiness with a pale malt base underneath. Flavours of wheat and grain and orange and lemon. The palate is velvety smooth and medium in body - smoothness especially is spot on for a witbier. Fresh and fruity, standard witbier - nice to drink but easily forgotten also.

Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has decent amount of wheat, some soapy lemon. Bit zesty and spicywhen warms. Flavour has watery dish washing liquid. Some wheaty notes. Not the best wit there is.

Bottle at home. Pours hazy and pale yellow with small white head which diminishes quickly. Aroma of wheat and notes of yeast, fruit and banana. Medium sweetness, really light bitterness. Quite crisp and nice.

Bottle@home, from Alko Kaleva, Tampere, Finland. Bit simple but balanced and soft, no yeast or sour nuances. Sweeter malts, wheat and a bit of banana and vanilla. Refreshing, still having medium body and light/medium carbonation.

A light yellow beer, a head is medium and white. Aroma has lemon, wheat and some coriander. Taste has lemon with slight lemony tartness, some spicyness, mustyness in the end. Medium bodied, strong carbonation. Not refreshning enough. Decent.

Bright yellow weiss bier. Totally unknown for me. Nice flavour. Good balance and no bad after tastes. And not too expensive here in Minimani - Vasa - Finland.
