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.

northropfrye (3643) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 22, 2012
Citrus and witbier aroma, a touch of pine. Yellow in colour with lots of lasting white head and mirky sediment. Very flavourful citrus, a touch of bitterness, but nice sweet Belgian yeast taste, too. Refreshing, lively. tasty.

draft @ waagstuk. very,very refreshing, even more drinkable ! some sweet hop, light mouthfeel.very nbice to drink like a lager or such, but whats with this aftertaste? it reminds me of horses.. maybe hay or such? either way, i dont like that and it ruins the beer for me

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Poured a murky gold colour with some sediment and a plump white head. Fragrant yeasty nose with notes of citrus, hops and bready malts. Flavour was sweetish with similar traits to the nose, alongside a warming booze hit. Fairly lively carbonation. Bitterness kicked in towards the finish. Decent brew.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 25, 2012
750mL with dinner. Yeasty, floral aroma with citrus and cider notes. Dark yellow-light orange color, fine frothy head in abundance. Tastes yeasty sweet, with minor hopping, and a sour backbone. Similar to Duvel, only more sour and less sugary. Doesn’t go out of it’s way to hide its high content, although it is easy drinking and goes with most foods.

Temptation (257) - - NOV 19, 2012
On tap. Light amber and cloudy colour, without sediment. Nice head, white and compact and an excellent lace. Aromas to flowers and citric with fruit (pear) hints. But its watery texture, its medium to low body and the short development dissapoint. Not a bad beer at all, but ir could be better; even much better.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
Cloudy yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma of herbal, citrusy hops and yeast. Flavor of herbal, citrusy hops and yeast with a dry, bitter finish. Light body with a creamy texture and lively carbonation.

4.2
Cybercat (5887) - Georgia, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pours a beautiful golden yellow with a thick and lively pale cream head. Strong aroma is yeasty and fruity with a malty undertone. Flavor is mainly fruity, mostly pear and apple with some banana, good yeasty note, underpinning of malt, hint of honey. Texture has good fizz and firm, smooth body. Finish is fruity and malty with just a hint of hops.

csaso (2284) - Missouri, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Tap - small foamy head, pale straw color, sweet lemon hop aroma and flavor, light bodied, would be very refreshing on a hot day

sir__v (2629) - FRANCE - NOV 10, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2015 Color: great blond gold beer with small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: floral and fruity sensation. Taste: yeast and wheat, great Belgium ale. Really pleasant. Aftertaste: great complexity with hops, wheat and yeast.

3.9
UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2012
hazy gold capped by white head. nose and taste of citrus, orange peel, light caramel. Yeast element of the nose does not transfer to taste. light to medium body makes this ultra drinkable.
