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.

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.

Fluffy and growing head. Good spotty lace. Pale gold color.

Sour apple smell, like a cyber. Light hop spice with even lighter Belgian yeast nose.

Thinnish body with a sharp carbonation. Less sour than the smell, but more biting from the hop. The yeast flavor is present but muted. Pale malt finish with some hoppy bitterness.

Brown bottle with packaged date 01/18/16 (hard to read, black ink on brown glass), poured into glass. Brownish gold color, a bit murky (unfiltered), so-so white head. Nice yeasty aroma with mild balanced hops. Taste, definitely staying with the Belgian ale character, though that seems to emerge from the malts after a bit rather than be right up front. Some of the expected yeasty / fruity mix, with nicely integrated alcohol and hops for a tingle, and pleasant clean mouthfeel with a slight creaminess. Could be fruitier, though. Some mild hoppy aftertaste.

An easy to drink lighter version of a triple. Good but not amazing. Great for a warm day.
