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 little bit cloudy, wheat beer with a modest layer of foam. Is has a fruity and a little bit sour aroma, but with a hidden touch of malt. A nice bitter taste with the touch of citrus, and only a bitter aftertaste remains. Een ietsjes troebel, doch nog helder witbier met een bescheiden witte kraag. Het aroma is fruitig en ietsjes zurig, maar wel met de toets van mout op de achtergrond. Lekkere bittere smaak met op de achtergrond een citroenzurige hint. Alleen een iets bittere nasmaak blijft over.

Idiosynkrasie (5016) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2014
330ml bottle [as "Gerrie Hondius", part of the Bekenesserkerk series]. Slightly cloudy, yellow-ish, pale golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Style-adequate aroma with a prevalence on the sweet-ish, orangey side. Taste is better balanced, fuller, starts citrusy with explicit lemon note, moderately sweet middle part with hints of orange, finishes fully developed with wheaty basis, coriander and other spices, a tart lemon touch, orange zest, floral notes, a herbal hoppy touch. Light bodied but rather rich and flavourful.

Jopen adriaan is een lekker witbier met een friszoete smaak. Een van de betere witbieren maar niet het beste jopenbiertje
