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.

tomer (3047) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 5, 2016
Draught at De Paas, stable medium creamy head, cloudy lemon color with orange taints, aroma of wheat and bubblegum with a spicey hint, flavor of lemon grapefriut and bubblegum with some almond in the back, light citrusy bitterness, light sourness, prickly carbonation. Very nice and really easy to drink.

The beer looks nice, like a witbier should. The color is a rather light yellow. The beer is pale, but some beers are paler. On top of the beer there is a nice layer of rough white foam that collapses quickly. Almost nothing of the foam remains. The smell is nice but simple and a little mild for the type. I smell some zest and citrus fruits. It is a little watery though, the aromas could have been stronger. The taste is the same. A bit to watery and to mild. I’ve expected somethings stein get. The bitter and sour zest aromas are to weak and the sweets are also to weak. I expected more, especially from Jopen.

0.33 l bottle from Alko Hakaniemi, Helsinki. Cloudy and pale (wit) with a nice head. Taste has coriander and orange. Less citrus than usually due to oats which make this more malty.

Hyvin hailakanvaalea sameahko olut, jonka vaahto katoaa nopeasti kokonaan. Tuoksussa jonkinlainen yllättävä hieman tunkkaisen sitruksinen ja korianterinen aromi. Jollain kierolla tavalla omaan nenääni leijailee jopa palvikinkkuista tuoksua. Maku sitruksinen, mutta samalla hieman tunkkainen. Melko kuiva, kevyt suutuntuma, runsaasti hiilihappoja. Ei silti lainkaan raikas witbier.

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.
