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.

A good craft witbier. Some soft spicy tones. A little bit sweet, and a smooth aftertaste.

Interesting. Murky yellow with a small head and soft prickly carbonation. Malt sweetness with notes of yeast overripe fruit and spices. More a weizen than a wit. I like it.

Flaske 0,33. Farven er lys gullig hvid ufiltreret. Skumkronen er hvid og høj, men falder hurtigt sammen til næsten ingenting. Aroma er citrus og banan, medens smagen er frugt, ananas og citron.

Amarilla blanquecina, consistentemente turbia y con abundante espuma blanca. El aroma es herbal y especiado, escaso. Agradable en boca, suave al paladar y cremosa. Frutal, plátano, y picor especiado. Buen punto de gas. Mas seca que dulce. Refrescante y agradable. Buena wit.

Bottle at home. Pours a hazy strawlike gold, indeed like the typical whitebeers, with a frothy white head and light carbonation. The aroma is indeed heavily dominated by coriander, with peppery notes, some malts, wheat and yeast. I quite like the beers by Jopen, but I did expect a bit different whitebeer from them, and therefore was a bit surprised when the coriander was also demanding mist space in the taste. There’s notes of floral citrus, a lot of cloves and cardemom, hint of bayleave ( but I expect that will be the gale they use, although that’s supposed to be sweet...), a touch of honey and lemon ofcourse. It’s got an oily mouthfeel with an anisidic( is that the right word for something tasting a bit like anise?), peppery aftermatch with a very thin silt lining. For my taste the coriander and lemon could me more subdued to make the perfect balance, it’s pretty acidic(citrus) in overtone after a while. Nevertheless it’s a very refreshing and beautiful beer, specially once you know about the "gruit" they used for it, so the historical effort alone makes it interesting. On a hot summers’ day it’s one you can’t beat in refreshment if you’re into whitebeers!
