COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 opens with a sour vinegarlike nose, in the glass lime, coriander, dough, basement aromas, hint of ginger, cloudy pale yellow, frothy white head that lasts for while, light lacing, fresh light sour taste with coriander, lemon and again that touch of ginger leading to a dry somewhat bitter finish, light-bodied, though not really thin is it a bit watery

Erasmus_ro (1458) - Alabama, USA - SEP 14, 2013
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.

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

Abijen (1511) - ’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.
