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, Singelís tropical fruit esters complement its spicy hop aromatics. Delicate in body, Singelís mellow, dry finish culminates a truly ethereal experience. Hardywood Singelís 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.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle from a friend. Poured a cloudy golden-orange color with a fluffy, dense white head that clings to the sides of the glass as it slowly recedes. Soft, delicate apricot and white peach pair with tart lemon notes alongside a dusty, earthy yeastiness and a soft, honey-tinged doughy sweetness offset by a lightly spicy hoppiness. Smooth, lightly sweet doughy entry with hints of honey leads into a moderate earthiness paired with a lightly spicy, drying hoppiness with undertones of soft fruits in the form of apricot, peach, red apple that linger into the dry finish where they are offset with a soft, slightly chewy yeastiness. Moderate carbonation, and moderate yet crisp mouth feel. They did a good job offsetting dryness with sweetness, all the while remaining delicate, creating an incredibly drinkable beer. Overall, I absolutely dig this stuff, one of the best American Belgian paleís I have had in recent memory.

guzzler67 (1538) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Hazy gold appearance with a small white head and spotty lacing. Sweet, yeasty aroma with fruit and spices in the background. Flavors of bread, tropical fruit , spices and a low keyed hop presence. Soft bitter aftertaste stays focused on the spiciness. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish.

rosenbergh (7787) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2014
12 oz bottle. (Shenandoah Hops) Staunton, VA.
Cloudy pale yellow colour with a small white head. Mild aroma of yeast and apples. The flavour is mild bitterness, apples and hints of yeast. It clearly is a interpretation of Belgian Blonde. More flavour and more body would help a lot.

Nickls (1916) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Tap. I decidedly like the bottles sample I had a lot better for its depth, but sadly wasnít able to rate it. Hazy bright light gold, nice lacing. Citrus, hay, slight earth and white grape and pear sourness in the aroma. Flavor is very similar, touch bitter and has a nice refreshing finish. Lighter body with tingly carbonation. Good brew.
