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.

Shark_Pants (585) - 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 (1187) - 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.

rondphoto (3840) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 26, 2015
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.

Excalibur123 (346) - Soria, SPAIN - JAN 21, 2015
Color amarillo pálido algo turbio, media capa de espuma permaneciendo una fina capa; aromas a pomelo, hojas de pino y levadura, en boca entrada suave y refrescante con el alcohol bien integrado y el lúpulo muy equilibrado, empieza con un suave amargor que se va disipando en el pos gusto, cuerpo y carbónico medio.

Nice cloudy yellow colour with a big foamy head. Silty Sharp lemon aroma and some spices. Fresh! Sweet plum and malts, not do much hop tones. Also not do much carbonation. A bit dry aftertaste. Plums stay. A bit to sweet for me.
