Notes/Commercial Description:
Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and uninhibited, Hardywood Singel is a feat in balance. Sunshine golden with a fluffy head and a veil of Belgian ale yeast, Singel’s tropical fruit esters complement its spicy hop aromatics. Delicate in body, Singel’s mellow, dry finish culminates a truly ethereal experience.

Hardywood Singel's stylistic inspiration originates with the Trappist brewers of western Europe, who are often celebrated for their gloriously complex dubbels and tripels, and whose devotion to crafting heavenly libations is second to none. Unknown to many, some of the Trappist brewers also brew a milder ale for daily consumption within the walls of the monastery. Hardywood Singel is our interpretation of this style.

I have gotten out of the habit of reviewing beers here, but as this is from a new Richmond brewery (and I really ought to support the home teams more often), I thought I should add my opinion.

Not sure what to make of this as an example of a Belgian Pale Ale, though of course Belgian Pale Ale is such a broad category that while I'm not sure it fits here, neither am I sure that it does not.

They certainly got the carbonation right, and I love the full, flowing Belgian head (which lingers nicely). Aroma is flowery with a little dusky pepper; not bad. I detect an aftertaste, though, that I am not fond of - sort of a cousin to what one gets from a bad lager, a bit sour, a bit off. Mouthfeel is also average - despite the carbonation, it becomes thin and watery too soon.

Overall, though, not a bad start.
