COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

JoeMcPhee (9268) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2006
Cloudy copper coloured beer with a fast fading white head. Aroma of light toffeeish malt, a bit of coriander citrus notes, cardamon and some yeasty dustiness. Fairly thin bodied. As it warms it seems to sweeten a bit. Some citrusy tangerine flavour with a subtly herbal finish. Okay, but not really great.

Hazy, toasted wheat color with a loose, scattering, sudsy white head. Aroma of apple sauce, orange-blossom honey, flowery heather, and herbal spice suggesting corander. Flavor brings out pear characters with prominent honey notes and medium, unbalanced sweetness. Comes across like a thin spiced wine/mead. Flat, syrupy thin body. Doesnít particularly appeal to me. Iíd be curious to try a very fresh sample, but thatís not an easy option.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2006
Aroma has some mild apple notes, mild spice some more pronounced herbal and spice notes. The body is light amber that leans more to yellow than light orange. There is some suspended yeast specks in the pour. The head starts large, two fingers thick, but the fluffy whiteness fades away fairly quickly. The fore is spiced apple and a mash of apothecary herbs. The bosy is fairly full, but the flavor has a watery tasting finish. On the whole though I rather liked this. There are coriander notes that linger on the tongue..just as a p.s.

In the bottle from HyVee CB. Pours a hzy gold with dark tiny particles that are heavy and electron dense. Minimal white head. The yeast cake in the bottom was dark, thick and impossible to dislodge, so the appearance might be more wit-like for others if they can coax the yeast off the bottom. Aroma is remarkable and amazing. Apple orchard aroma. Smells of a real barbershop (witch hazel and bay rum). Gooseberries. Caramel. Flavor does not match the wonderful aroma. Thin in body. Lacks a substantial palate. Tartness predominates. Orange and lemon flavors, but fails to deliver the goods promised by its flirtatious aroma.

From a 12 oz. brown bottle with a blurb and coded lot/freshness date on the back label. Poured a cloudy amber hued orange with a foamy head that settled into a thin lacing. Aromas of spice, coriander, herbs and orange peel. Moderate carbonation and a smooth, slick lightish medium bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant and mild tasting, softly tart fruity, apricots and pear with a light orange zest, mild spices and herbs, nutmeg, and a dryish spice and orange finish. I was expecting a bit more taste from this when I purchased it, so for me, average drinkability. I was hoping this would be more tasty than it was, it will be a while before I try it again.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2006
Very intesting beer... bottle from the Belgian Room, NYC. Other than Heavyweight Two Druids, this is the only other gruit Iíve had. An intense fruity character lined this beer, along with a powerful herbal/sage/parsley aroma. The fruits in the taste (wheaty fruits -- lemon/banana/kiwi/fruit punch) were a bit overwhelming. Spicing was noticable but subtle.

Bottle from Super Saver. Dark straw pour with a lot of carbonation bubbles. Aroma of bready malt, tart apricotty fruit, some honey and hopcitrus. The flavor was citric and tart, with some bready malt, hops, and some finishing honey and apricot.
