Hop Ruiter (Hop Rider) has a full, almost rustic malt body, and pairs Belgian yeast-driven flavors with American assertive hoppiness. It is dry hopped, with two noble varieties which add complexity, delicacy and a bit of funk.

UDBeernut (2638) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2012
hazy gold capped by white head. nose and taste of citrus, orange peel, light caramel. Yeast element of the nose does not transfer to taste. light to medium body makes this ultra drinkable.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
A slightly hazed golden pour with a white head. Very fruity hop aroma of apple, citrus, and a mild tropical note. Some definite yeast and spice notes with a slight malt sweetness. The flavor is very citrus forward but also has some nice floral qualities. Malt sweetness, a bit of spice, and a fair amount of yeast.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2012
330ml bottle from Arden Wines. Dusted, streaming gold propping up a dense, rocky foam. Soapy, perfumed aroma with coriander, jasmine, lemon wine gum, mosquito repellent and honey notes. Clean, perfumed and herbal with lemon jelly and parsley-like citrus finishing with a satisfying bitterness and lingering bread and biscuit. The coriander is pronounced but still enigmatically Belgian. Turbo-charged Hoegaarden, basically. Like it.
