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.

Dark blond beer with a large white head. Aroma of tropical fruit. Taste fruity, with a mix of herbs and bitterness. Dry aftertaste.

mansquito (6971) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Whole Foods, Bowery 750ml ($12): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is fruity, yeast, champagne, and a bit of hops. Taste is pretty standard BSA. This might be too sweet for me, not that it was exactly cloying, but coupled with the underlying sourness (not in a sour ale way), it was a bit much in the aftertaste. Hoppiness is mildly assertive at best. Not a spectacular beer. Body was ok.

Valgreen (814) - DENMARK - MAY 16, 2013
Draught at fairbar Aarhus 16/5 2013. Almost clear orange, with small white head. The smell is trappist yeast, with weak hop background. Taste is very spicy, like pepper, some citrus, green apples. Very long aftertaste. Nice mouth feel, with a warm alcohol taste. Overall a okay beer.

Scopey (15862) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle at CGarvie tasting. It pours pale yellow with a thick white head and some suspended particles. The nose is lemon, grapefruit, dough, green apple and light herbal. The taste is icing sugar, straw, alcohol warmth, lemon, white grape, grapefruit, green apple and pear drops. Medium body and fine carbonation. A touch sweet perhaps, but it hides the ABV well. Drinks pretty well.

zimbo (974) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2013
Sharp on the tongue with spice. Looks like a pilsner big drifting white head. Gentle but strong. Very nice really. Packs a decent punch for something relatively light on its feet.

4.2
TET (3230) - Kaarina, FINLAND - APR 26, 2013
A dark yellow beer with a quite big, dense and blond head. Aroma is delicious, tropical fruits, "belgian"fruits, lots of fructose, mangos, pears, hint of bananas. The great mix of sopfisticated belgian ale with intensive tropical fruits. Taste is also very fruitfull, balanced sweetness, mangos, spices, some peppers. The drying aftertaste, spices and some herbs. Medium+ bodied, quite high carbonation that lightening the drinkability. Very succesfull beer, surprise for me, the great aroma is quite similar with the great Rulles Triple, otherwise also balanced and fruitfull beer.

3.6
podey (638) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2013
33cl bottle at BXL East. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma is strong of Belgian yeast, fruits, sugar and green apple. Taste is slightly bitter, hoppy and funky. Slighly sweet but bitter finish.
