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.

Poured a light gold color and was somewhat hazy, one finger of white head didn't stick around too long.
It has that typical Belgian smell that I love with some banana and apple.
Taste followed the smell with the banana and some apple but also had a mild spice to it, very nice.
The mouthfeel was thin with a good deal of carbonation.
Overall I was very impressed and look toward to more from hardywood park.

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a golden yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch and a half of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A lot of fruit, along with a good deal of yeast and malt.

T: Tasted of yeast, malt, citrus (lemon), spices, and some other light fruit. A very vibrant, effervescent flavor with just the right amount of complexity.

M: A huge amount of carbonation with a crisp, smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: One of the better examples of an American version of a Belgian beer. Very easy to drink.

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!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: A meringue of a head mushrooms on top of the cloudy amber liquid, leaving a lace curtain behind on the tulip

Smell: Yeast forward aromatics, with pepper and coriander dominant; apple, pear and grape tones, underneath

Taste: The fruit flavors emerge first, with apple, pear and hint of vinous grape; by mid-palate, the pepper and coriander emerge and wind up dominating the finish though the fruit flavors linger underneath

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with high carbonation

Overall: Hardywood just goes from strength to strength in my book, mastering a broad range of styles; another fine brew that I could have mistaken for an Allagash or an Ommegang
