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.

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.
