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.

This orange collored beer is more refreshing than most wheatbeers. Although I doubt if this beer is a fair compairison with wheatbeers. After the refresing taste there is a good bitterness in the aftertaste. My terras favourit.

had this on tap at some well-stocked but pricey beer bar in arnhem. original stuff - very yeasty aroma then lots of dark grape and watermelon with a surprisingly sour/dry finish. had this in between a few abbeys and it more than matched them tastewise

On tap at Arendsnest, Amsterdam. Hazey white/yellow, with a thickish head. Really nice chalky lemon aroma. Less chalky than expected in the mouth, more sliky in fact, with a lemon meringue pie feeling. Sweet fruit, with creamy fizz and a crunchy carbonation on the finish. Very good stuff, even though I never clocked it was anything other than a standard Wit stylee.

Well this is supoosed to be a wit so this is under the wrong catagory. Not bad I like this sdtyle very much but as wits go this is nothing special. It sounds real interesting when you read the copy but it is rather watery if crisp. Better then many beers but for its style just OK.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2007 Bottled, gift from my mother. Fruity with lots of herbs. Very easy to drink. Like most of the other beers from this brewery, pretty good.

pleasant surprise. yeasty, bread aroma. kind of fizzy mouth feel at first then it became mroe subdued. tastes were rampant with fruits like watermelon or maybe orange. Nice collage of fructose. really good.
