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.

thewolf (12803) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2007
Bottle @ OL i Aarhus. Pours a light - almost neon - yellow. A small white head. Aroma is youghurt, sweetness and a little ’wet dog’. Quite low carbonation - perhaps too low for the flavours. Which are too limited, making the beer feel watery. Some sweetness, maltyness and a slight dose of hops.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2007
Fruity and spicy aromas, very spicy(coriander that is), sweet and sourrish taste. Fruity finish, bit sticky mouthfeel. Alltogether this one is allright. Reminds me a lot of a belgian witbier.

cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle from Riversbend: Pours a dirty gold color with a small white head. Smell is thick with lemon and some spice. Smells pretty sweet. Taste is a little sweeter than the smell leads on. I taste a bit of a butter bread taste with just a hint of lemon. This is easy to drink in the summer.

patrick767 (4197) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 26, 2007
bottle - Pours murky orange with numerous dark floaters that sink after awhile. It has a very herbal aroma and flavor and tastes somewhat sweet. I really can’t place the herbs, but they certainly give it a unique flavor. It reminds me of the heather ale that I tried awhile back. The carbonation is low and the body seems a little watery. It has a light, dry finish. It’s an okay quaff, but I definitely wouldn’t pay $6 for a bottle again.

3.3
Tmoney99 (14983) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2007
Bottle from Party Town. Poured a hazy golden color with a small white head that modtly lasted with good lacing. Good aroma of spice and yeasty fruit. Medium body with smooth texture. Good fruity sour & sweet flavor with a spicy complex finish of moderate duration. Interesting complex good brew.
