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 (PŚske) 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.

13ļP 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.

bytemesis (3151) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle thanks to agentzigzag! Pours hazy golden amber, medium off white creamy head, nice lacing. Aroma is Bretty, musty, citrus and grapefruit notes as well. Reminds me of Anchorage Brett strain. Flavor has a light bretty funk, lightly bitter with plenty of citrus notes. Minerally, as is my usual impression of HF beers, perhaps a very light saltiness at the end. Medium body, silky mouthfeel. This is a hell of a beer. I wish I could buy it in six packs.

barn0216 (403) - California, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Cloudy golden color, foamy. Fruity aroma, citrus but i canít pin down the source, tiny bit of funk. Nice bitter yet fruity flavor. Super drinkable, really like this one though i would like it slightly drier.

CanIHave4Beers (3253) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Oh, so this is what ousts Orval out of itís #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 chilliní in a barn style funk.

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

Itís really great, itís not "knock Orval down an notch" great... but itís 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.
