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 on-tap at the brewery, the beer is a slightly hazy, golden coloring, with a thin, filmy, white head. Nose of honey, apricot, and a spice blend of clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Aromas are complex, balanced, and refrain from overpowering. Flavors are tangy sweet forward, heavy on honey and cream, with highlights of citrus and berry. Subtle spice blend of clove and cinnamon kicks up a little at the end of the palate. Smooth, light, and crisp in mouth, with a subtle sweet honey and spice aftertaste. Crisp, clean finish. Refreshing beer.
