COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
E. is for Edward (1917-2002), my grandfather, as well as the name of the first beer that I brewed in my brewery on March 30, 2010. E. is for Easter; brewing in Denmark revealed a European tradition of crafting Easter (Påske) beer. Thus, in honor of E., to the past and future emprises here on Hill Road, a special first anniversary release. Edward fermented with yeasts of Belgian origin, tank conditioned over four months, dry hopped with Galaxy hops, and bottle conditioned. E is for Entelechy, the continued actualization of our potential through spirited effort and vision.

13ºP 6.2% abv. Pale and Caramel Malt; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, Warrior, and Galaxy Hops; Saison and Brettanomyces Yeast, and our Well Water.

Released usually every year. No 2013 version released. Last batch released April of 2014.

Oh, so this is what ousts Orval out of it’s #1 style spot?
Pours a very hazy blonde with a small head & some nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is bright and peachy, it has some lemon and new oak, some musty basement and some chillin’ in a barn style funk.

The flavor is tart and peachy. It’s earthy with a great minerallity & lemon rind. It’s lightly sour & quite delicious.

It’s really great, it’s not "knock Orval down an notch" great... but it’s delicious.

Bottle, shared at RBAG 2014 by Steve. Cloudy light orange. Enticing aromas of guava, funk, and grass. Hoppy, funky, lightly skunky with flavours of green mango, grapefruit, grass, and funky earthy/barny undertones. Complex and delicious.

Bouteille 750mL, vintage 2014. Edward est disparu au profit du brett qui prend la majorité de la place alors que les houblons sont peu perceptibles. Bof, pas de complexité.
