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.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra. Pale cloudy yellow with a white head. Spicy yeasty aroma. I didn’t like the overall taste of the Adriaan but I’M not a big Belgian White fan so I’m biased.

Very light yellow, slightly hazy beer with small white head. Taste and aroma are not impressive, it´s rather tastless. Bit refreshing, as a witbier should be, but there are a lot more tastier witbiers. Low body, carbo is nice.

Vaiz (3146) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2012
Bottle at home. Hazy yellow pour, thin white head. Aroma of citrus, lime, wheat, banana and some coriander. Flavor is sweet and refreshing and also a hint of citrussy sourness. Very nice for in the hot sun.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas steht ein zitrusgelbes Bier mit guter Trübung und viel feinem Schaum. Der Geruch ist hefig säuerlich, mit malzbitteren Tönen. Das Bier startet hefig säuerlich, schön fruchtig im Hintergrund. Der Abgang ist angenehm süßlich. Der Verlauf wird wesentlich fruchtiger und der süße Ton nimmt ebenfalls deutlich zu. Ein Kruidenbier wird mit Kräutern vergoren, aber davon schmecke ich hier leider nichts. Trotzdem ein leckeres, süffiges Bier.

I had this one a long time ago. If I have the chance to drink it again, I’ll update this rating

Pours an unclear and yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, fruit, yeast and notes of lemon. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is dry. Overall a beer below average.
