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.

4.35/5  rDev +15.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a brilliant golden hue with a one-finger white head that dissipates rather quickly. Barely any lacing. Somewhat cloudy consistency but the color is truly something to behold. 4.5

S - Smells of apricot, pear, bergamot and plum along with malt and a bit of hops. Overall, even though it's a bit faint it smells delicious. 4.0

T - The taste is hard to describe but is wonderful. It's a mixture of sweet maltiness and bitter hops at the back of the tongue. Begins with a characteristic Belgian Pale Ale flavor (slightly sweet with a bitter aftertaste) yielding hints of lemon, citrus, and pear. Then hoppy finish is great and leaves you craving another sip immediately after. 4.5.

M - Feels pretty good overall. Smooth consistency and slightly tingly, only mild amount of carbonation but it's just the right amount for this type of beer. 4.0.

Overall, I'm very, VERY impressed with Hardywood Park Craft Brewery so far. Their Singel is a great beer and their Farmhouse Pumpkin is a wonderful example of what a pumpkin ale should strive to be. I'd give the Singel a 4.5 out of 5 overall, and I hope that people give Hardywood a try in the near future!
