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.

brnandersen (2029) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2014
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Tulip. Hazy, deep golden colour with an amber tint. Thin, dense white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, grasses, yeasts, floral and herbal hops, oranges. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity-bitter with spicy hops and yeasts. Nice Belgian trying to be an IPA. Lacks a bit of the high drinkability as Duvel has.

Christian (11281) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2014
Hazy golden with a lasting, thick white head. Spicy yeast aroma, with plenty of grassy/herbal hopsand notes of citrus. Flavour is rather sweet, spicy and fruity, with notes of dark sugar, licorice, and dried fruit. There’s a bitter finish, but it’s too sweet for my taste

rikstar (923) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2014
0,33l fles bij mitra eindhoven vandaan. goudgeel met een volle witte kraag. in de geur redleijk zoet met appel en abrikoos en mout. Smaak begint erg zoet en het hopbitter komt pas laat en niet echt sterk om de hoek. Het lijkt er op dat er vooral aromahop is toegevoegd, daardoor komt deze blonde in de smaak iets tekort.
