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.

From 03/29/14 notes. On tap at Fireworks in Arlington, VA.

a - Pours a pale yellow color with one inch of slightly off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of spices, mint, bananas, cloves, yeast, bready malts, light pepper, and light floral notes. Nice nose, little too much pepper.

t - Tastes of sweet bananas, fruity malts, apples, spices, cloves, light pepper, floral notes, mint. Taste is better than the nose, sweeter and more fruits.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a pretty good Belgian. Nice bananas and spices throughout, and easy to drink. Worth checking out.

On draft at Whole Foods in Alexandria, VA.

The beer is clear and golden with a small white head. the aroma brings Belgian yeast, light spice, a hint of alcohol. Simple and easy drinking. Not too sweet. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A nice American representation of an abbey single. A few small tweaks and they could be onto something.
