Powerful blend of herbs
Strong gruit beer, 8,5%
Jopen Koyt is brewed with gruit, a medieval blend of herbs in which sweet gale picked according to ritual was essential. Legend has it that, to avoid its hallucinogenic properties, sweet gale could only be picked at full moon by nude witches.
The spicy flavour is highly complex and smooth. This reddish-brown beer is a reproduction of a Haarlem beer and is brewed according to the brewer’s statute (recipe regulated by the council) of 1407. Deliciously risky.
Delicious with mussels and sheep’s cheese

Spicy eucalyptus and menthol fragrances along with summer fruit and caramel aromas.
Full-bodied warming flavour with smooth, sweet malty tones at the finish, switching to spicy liquorice and bay leaf tones.
Spicy finish with bay liquorice and resin tones.
Dark brown in colour. Medicinal aroma and a treacle-like density. Powerful flavours with (cough) syrup and sweet Olorosso sherry aromas. Develops a citrus peel fragrance, a certain scent (violets?) and an almond flavour. Greatly stimulates the sense of taste!
