BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hardywood Park Craft Brewery
Virginia, United States
hardywood.com

Style: Belgian Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Year-round

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 from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bright golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of yeast, fruits. Taste is yeast, malts, some fruits, a bit of black pepper. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking and decent beer.

I like Tank 7, I really do. I wish Tank 7 taste like this. It's just a bit more of something. No disrespect to Tank 7, because I love what Boulevard does.

12 oz bottle from Virginia.
Poured golden amber; Clear with a good white head.
This could result pitas for a true Belgian despite the U.S. origin. It has lots of flavor and aromas from the Belgian yeast including banana, clove, nutmeg and wood. Some hop spicing including white pepper. Very complex.

Pours a clear, dark yellow color with a bright white head that slowly dissipates. . Smells yeasty, with cracker, and lemon. Tastes of banana, peppery, bread, coriander, and hop bitterness. Finishes cleanly and crisply. Medium-light body beer, good for summer. Easy drinker, nice and solid.

Very clear golden beer with crackling white head that dissipates after about a minute.

Aroma similar to a pilsner- dry, spicy, lemony. Some hops, not much malt.

Taste follows aroma, with the inclusion of coriander and grass. Spicy hop and some malt.

Overall, a good summer drink, when you are about to reach for a pilsner and then decide to bump it up a notch in terms of IBUs and flavor profile. I'm drinking this a little warmer than usual and have no criticisms. Well done.

One of my favorite beers I've had out of a bottle. Tastes great and has a good mouth feel.
