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.

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 pale’s I have had in recent memory.

Golden beer with a good head. Sunshine golden color. Pleasant to look at with a taste to match. Smooth drinkability with a pleasant aftertaste. Limited kick but goes down easily. Definitely worth a shot.

JoeMcPhee (8962) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2015
Pale straw colour. The nose is spicy and fruity. Has a little bit of pepper and some nice soft fruitiness. A classic yeast profile and a little bit of herbal character. Pretty damn nice pint.

On tap at Couch Tomato MANAYUNK. I'll keep this simple. It was really spot on for a Belgian Single blond. Good Belgian aroma and flavor. Not over the top and very flavorful and drinkable. All around good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FROTHINGSLOSH (5359) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy yellow-gold color with a huge creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy, vaguely fruity, yeasty and a bit musty. The flavor was tangy, yeasty, chalky, a pit of pez and citric acid. Turns a bit dry and has a touch of cardboard. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

Light Aroma of malt, hop, fruit, wheat, citrus. Enjoyable light brew. Mild bite, more citrus and wheat than anything.

Pours a super light straw with a quickly dissipating fluffy white head. Nice clean, slight yeast aroma. Yeast, fruit on the palette. Great dry finish of hops and spice.
