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.

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.

TET (2988) - 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.

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.

MaartenRF10 (1949) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2013
Sample at Mitra Bier Experience
Cloudy light golden, white head. Both aroma and taste have some hop, a lot of yeast, some funk. Low to medium body and carbo with a soapy mouth feel.

JorgeLee (2086) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2013
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Light yellow in colour with a billowing head. Yeasty Belgian and yet also hoppy aroma, smells fantastic. It’s a hoppy Belgian ale, very floral with a decent lengthy finish. Enjoyable and very drinkable.

3.1
Aurelius (5294) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Sugary, yeasty aroma. Good label; muddy tan beer with flocculent floaters; thin white head. Pleasantly bitter, sour fruit, yeasty, green apple astringency, malting is a bit on the dry biscuity side when cold, sweeter as it warms. Frothy mouthfeel. New Leaf Market.

3.7
MoritzF (9851) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2013
(bottle, 75cl) Cloudy, particle-laden pale golden coloured hue with a blond and fluffy mid-sized foam. Citrus-fruity (tangerine) and mildly spicy hoppy aroma with yeasty notes, pale malt and white bread. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Balanced pale malt-character with biscuity notes and an aromatic amount of noble hops, including notes of citrus, tangerine and grapefruit; the latter especially towards the sweet-bitter and lasting finish. I like those hoppy Belgians. 26.XII.12
