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.

Good one!!! A number of Belgian Pale Ales are kind of wimpy without a pronounced flavor. This one is subtle but still impressive. Pours a bright golden, clear color with a medium size bubbly white head. Plenty of carbonation, the head faces fairly fast but leaves a light covering on the top of the glass.

Aroma is pretty good, some lemon zest and yeast. Flavor is very good, a little malt, tons of Belgian yeast flavor, some lemon zest and a little tropical fruit (probably from hops).

Nice light carbonated mouthfeel. There is richness from the flavor but overall its a kind of summery and easy to drink

Nice.

12 oz bottle poured into a pub-style pint glass.

Appearance
Yellow-straw with 1 finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Good clarity with tiny yeast particles suspended throughout.

Nose
hay, potpourri, lemon, and spent grain. Saison-esque.

Taste
Potpourri and hay. Spent grain, lemon zest, pear, and sourdough. Finishes with tons of peppercorn and a subtle earthiness.

Mouthfeel
Medium-light bodied, crisp, dry, and stingy with carbonation.

Overall
Spicy, earthy, and dry. Tastes like a brash, peppery saison.
