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.

Aroma is intensely fruity & floral. Flavour is similar, fruity and malty but also quite watery. This tastes much like íHerbal Essencesí shampoo smells. A strange concoction.

(12oz bottle) Particulate-filled murky amber body topped by quickly dissipating medium off-white head. Aroma is mild sweet, cardemom, light orange peel, light herbal, pepper. Taste is medium sweet, cardemom, orange, honey, light herbal. No bitterness evident. Watery light body. Not bad, but then again, it has nothing that would make me inclined to drink it again.

33cl bottle, wow, nothing on my bottle indicates that Steenberge brewed it. Code of 16DC on back lable. rusty color with head that dies, leaving some stingy lace. Smells like a Brachís Butterscotch candy. Exactly. Drinks with some hints of sour oragne apricot and butterscotch again. Ends up thin and somewhat astringent or metallic almost with some orange peel notes.. Very lazy bubbles flowing in it. Maybe a tradition not worth keeping. Still, not at all the worst thing Iíve ever had. As it breathes that butterscotch dies off, leaving behind a lot of orange peel and a farily refreshing beer. Not a fan of the butterscotch.

Coppery orange, thin head. Very slight horse aroma, hard to describe as not at all like a lambic. Whiff of sage. Slight sour start, a bit astringent, fades into soft citric note, along with some chervil herb notes. Interesting, but not something I would reach for again.

ADRIAN!!!! Orange Coloring with White Head. Nice Spice and Citrus.. Saffron? Coriander More then Likely. A Bit Odd..but Then Traditionals Like that as a Calling Card. Enjoyable in Either Case.

Pours a gold color with a foamy head. Oddly metalic and citrus nose with a bit of breadness as well. The taste is quite strange, not like the other gruits Iíve had. A little blueberry and corriander, I thought. Not bad, but certainly strange.

Floral hops are overwhelmed by huge butterscoth diacetyl aroma. Opaque copper coloured with thin, white fully diminishing head. Very short, sweet caramel flavour. Watery body with an oily texture and high gassy carbonation. Will need to resample as this canít be right - then again, at least one of us enjoyed it somewhat. Bottle - a disappointing butter-bomb sampled with MartinT and Rastacouere at Spuyten Duyvil (Brooklyn, New York).

Monstrous diacetyl punch covering a flat, white grapey, mead-like sweetness...Spices roam aloof in this sedentary texture but donít quite know where to settle...After having loved their Koyt, Iím led to believe that I need to resample this under different conditions...

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2004
Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Cloudy amber, nice color. Low off-white head. Aroma of spices mostly, coriander, sage, baked cookies, flour. Appears mostly sweet and grainy overall, a malt/yeast performance. On the tongue, spices become more overwhelming and develop into a shocking acidity. ROsemary and thyme nuances observable. Itís not blended too well and the flavor feels very short. Astringent and thin. Lively carbonation, thin (soda mouthfeel).

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2004
Milky orange with fine white head. Yeast, wheat, and iced tea like aromas. Light body with a refreshing citrus finish. Vanilla, citrus, grass, light spice and faint banana flavors. Very different, though some what like a belgian wit.
