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.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with decent white head. Aroma is a lot of lemon. Fairly sweet, light coriander. Taste is much of the same, but coriander is stronger. Alcohol comes through a bit. Light, too much carbonation.

Good witbier, mostly thanks to the use of gruit. It has the distinctive taste of wheat and herbs, but with a unique touch.

Gouden kleur met een volle schuimkraag. Weinig geur. Iets zoetig en iets citrus. Smaakt fris, citrus en iets fruitig, Prima witbier. Niks bijzonders.

Lekker witbier, mag wel koud gedronken worden. Iets voller van smaak dan de meeste witbieren ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Abijen (1472) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2013
Pours a pale golden unclear beer with a good white head. Smells more like a german weizen instead of a belgian white. Bit banana and lemon smell. Taste is boring. Pretty standard belgian white taste. Also some tones of licorice? Good carbo, wstery texture and thin body. Not a bad beer but very average.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is citrus, yeast and some light fruits. Flavour is light lemon, medium malty and has a quite watery palate. Decent beer, but could be better for a witbier.

bartlebier (1718) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2013
30cl bottle, Bier&Co Rotterdam, NL sampler. - typical gruut/gruit wit, rather flat on taste and with cooking&baking spices supplanting hop bitterness. Lactic yellow, thin palate. Still drinkable, but not a joy to down.
If this is brewed after an age-old Harlem recipe, why has it been brewed in commission by Van Steenberghe and then Huyghe, both two very lacklustre Flemish contractor breweries from the wider Gent area not very renowned for theirs wits (eh), when Gent already has its own true-to-the-medieval style Gruut brewery? Still minimally more characteristic than Huyghe’s own Blanche des Neiges.
