BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hardywood Park Craft Brewery

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.

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.

I received this beer when I was given a thank you gift from my neighbor, who put it together at a local Wegmans mix a six. Off of the pour I noticed an nice yellow color with an ample amount of carbonation. This one has the smell of a nice, solid , yeasty Belgian. Big bold flavor for sure ! Medium to light bodied, with a surprising crisp, dry finish. A very nice yeast / unique profile for sure. As time goes on, I am becoming a fan of Hardywood, especially their reserve and barrel aged series products.

From a bottle, pours as hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is yeasty with indistinct spices. Flavors are yeasty malt with pepper, coriander, and bread. Only complaint is that all the flavors fade quickly without the "sustain" of other brews.

I had this on tap at Blackfinn Ameripub in Merrifield, Virginia. It had a nice clear yellow color with ample white head. The smell was fresh malt. The taste was lightly peppery. It had a great mouthfeel. Overall it was a quite easy drinking solid beer.
