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.

seynie (342) - Tienen, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2015
Cloudy orange yellow, gushing from the bottle. Light carbonation after that. Hoppy nose with some schnaps. Something not quite right with the aromas. Hops, sweet sour sauce, a lot of dirty earth. Dryer finish but a bit sticky

ruuurd (216) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2015
Is this a Tripel or an IPA? Its yeasty, fruity and bitter. Perfect beer for a nice summer day.

Shark_Pants (599) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2015
Golden amber colour with large off-white head. Inviting aroma of sweetened grains, honey, grassy hops. The taste is sweet honey, belgian funk, grassy hops, grain starch. Just enough bitterness to balance out the sweetness. Medium bodied with light carbcarbonation. This is mote like a tripel in style and is really quite good.

Icedwarf (1230) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2015
Troebel licht geel bier met schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en fris fruitig, appel en sporen van banaan. Smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen.

Stuedmaster (345) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 10, 2015
11.2 oz. bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Pours rich gold with a nice white head, good retention and slight lacing. Aroma of grass, hay, honey, slight bubblegum, grain, and earth. The hops add a spiciness and they balance the sweet malt well. Reminds me of Delirium Tremens in a way, but without the complex yeast flavor profile. It does have the Belgian yeast funkiness, which is good. I really like this beer, has a lively feel in the mouth and goes down easy with a nice balance of sweet and bitter.

R2k2 (450) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2015
Een vrij troebel bier waar het gist nog in rondzwemt, met een witte maar stevige kraag. Een zuur aroma dat doet denken aan een IPA. De smaak is bitter waar ook het appelzure in voorkomt. De nasmaak is bitterzoet en blijft even lekker hangen. A cloudy beer where the yeast still swims around. It has a white but firm layer of foam. It has a sour aroma like that of an IPA. It tastes quite bitter but the sourness is also present. The aftertaste is bittersweet and hangs on for a while.

bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Slightly hazy mefium amber with a full white head cover, sheets of lace. Taste is grassy malt that adds floral and citrus hops on the swallow, mo0ving from there to a delicate malt/grass/floral hop finish. A solid brew that never reveals it’s alcohol.
