COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Flesje gekocht bij Kuva in Ophoven. Blond bier , licht troebel, mooie kraag die uiteindelijk als een laag op het bier blijft liggen. Ruikt hoppig, citrusfruit, lychee. Smaak is meer bitter dan zoet, weinig nasmaak en ook geen full body zoals in de omschrijving staat. Niet zo mijn smaak.

Hazy dark golden with fluffy off-white head. Nice aroma hops with lemon peel and some pine. Sweet fruits with apple and light tropical touch. Clean malty body with spicy Belgian yeast. Quite sweet. Medium bodied. Decent Belgian ale with nice hops

skortila (4433) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2014
Bottled. The aroma has some biscuity malts, earthy yeast tones, citric and floral hoppiness. Hazy, yellow coloured beet with a medium head. The taste is light bitter, bit sweetish, has some citric/floral hop tones, malts and earthy yeast. Bit more dry in the finish. Medium carbonation. Nice.

Mooie oranje kleur met een volle fijne kraag. Ruikt fruitig, hop, orange, beetje honing. Smaakt fruitig, zoetig, iets bitter ook.

Grassy and floral hops, fresh apple and some cider, some lemonade... a candy like sweetness which is a bit too much for me... malty finish
