COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Taste the summertime with Jopen Adriaan. Besides wheat and oats, this wheat beer also contains herbs. The result is a fresh and fruity beer with a smooth flavour. Jopen Adriaan is named after the De Adriaan windmill. This windmill stood on the banks of the Spaarne for centuries and milled grain for use by Haarlem brewers. In 1932, the mill was destroyed by fire. An initiative to rebuild the windmill was sponsored by Jopen through the sale of this wheat beer. Hugely thirst-quenching and ideally enjoyed on a sunny outdoor terrace.

doublebock (558) - California, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Mile lemony aroma, Cloudy golden appearance. Complete lack of carbonation and drinks like a lemondade. Taste of citrus, almost like fresca and ends with slightly bitter spicy tones. Would be nice on hot summerís day but could use some maltiness. Still a unique brew.

This beer is one of the main reasons that I am glad Iíve expanded my horizons and am trying and rating many different beers. Sometimes you win, some you lose, but always an adventure. Similar to Gose, this beer had a style and taste all its own. Poured to a hazy orange-gold with medium off-white head that lingered well and left okay lacing. Then things got interesting. The aroma was a strange mixture of seemed to be apples, green vegetables and unknown spices. Since I did not read anything on this prior to tasting, I actually thought it would be classified as a Vegetable/Herb beer. The flavor of this beer followed suit perfectly, as I tasted several different tastes at different times, again centered around vegetables and fruits. And while the 5% alcohol never made itself known in either aroma or taste, the finish was fairly long, though not real thrist quenching. This was not a beer I could drink all the time, or a lot of, but a unique experience that Iím glad I had.

This ale pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruit (pears and peaches) and spices (coriander and pepper). A light bodied ale. Malts are very fruity and sweet. Not hoppy since itís a gruit. Lots of spices balance this ale out, coriander, pepper and ginger. Itís a touch floral and earthy as well. Light tasting, itís very wit like, but there is a lot of flavors; some tea, fruit sweetness and spices compare and contrast in this beer. Interesting, but I am not sure I would want to drink this one a lot. Well worth trying though. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 4, 2007
from crackedkettle.com - hazy golden-orange colour with a large white head; perfumy aroma of pear with a spicy touch (coriander?); soft initial sweetness sonn balanced by a dry bitterness; short and dry fruity finish - a good one

I was pleasantly surprised by this gruit. Most gruits seemed to be overly spiced and end up tasting like Chai. Not this one. Done lightly on the herbs, it has a delicate floral nose and a beautiful clear coppery color. No yeast or protein haze, even after a swirl. Head was white but fell instantly. Flavor was unique, without the bitterness of hops, but without the sweetness of other gruits. Perhaps they use some acidified malt to make it tarter.

vyvvy (6400) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 25, 2007
While I thought this was okay it may very well be the most overpriced beer Iíve had at $5.99 / 12 oz bottle. Pours copper / orange with a small white head. The aroma is similar to a wit, but a bit richer with different spices and more orange. Medium body that is quite smooth and has very little carbonation. The flavor starts with smooth lemongrass, light orange and smooth malt. The finish is lightly spicy and sharply lemony. An alright beer, but for the price I expected considerably more from this.

3.6
Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Pours gold/orange with a thin head. Aroma is somewhat acidy, has what I call a cork-quality akin to Lindemanís Lambic beers. Very wet mouth feel, some what thinnish there. Very refreshing taste, somewhat orange-like. A little musty in a strange way. Good beer!

SHIG (4956) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Bottle: Poured a golden amber with a white head. Soure citrus and spice aroma. Orange malt flavor that was diffrent.
