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. 750ML $20 a bottle.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle: Poured a hazy pale yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma consists of pungent herbal hops with loads of funky notes and some rustic malt also discernable. Taste is a unique and funky mix between some herbal and floral hops with pungent notes with some rustic malt and light residual sugar notes. Brett is well dosed and hard to distinguish. Body is full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. This beer made for a very nice Christmas eve treat.

750 ml bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a cloudy orange color with a massive white head. A big sour Brett nose. A massive Brett saison with light oranges, pepper, lemons. Very good. A full palate.

cpetrone84 (1201) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2012
pour is extremely cloudy orange with tons of bubbly white head. Nose is lemony, notes of Saison yeast, a touch dusty and citrusy. Taste is a bit bland, some lemon, maybe faint yeast. Fairly celtzery and leathery, thin finish. Overly bretted, body is decent, high carb and drinkable, faintly dry.

Stine (1453) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Fully hazed, brilliant yellow-orange pour gathers a rocky, lathery head. A quick whiff of funk quickly gives way to the brightest golden kiwi and pineapple aroma I can remember. A blanketing of tough to find herbs and spices comes next; tarragon, clove, white pepper and dandelion. Citrus and stone fruit notes flash like meteors. This is a connection of quieted hops and brilliant yeasts that just thrills the imagination with its soft layering of herbal notes and pungent, rather indescribable moments of rustic funk.

The flavor is enormous but reserved like a young Orval. First is a white pepper dusted apricot flavor, distinct and quiet. Very light resiny hop oils surrounding it, and some dry green herbs. Myriad stone fruits. Gorgeous lavender. Banana. Gravelly and brittle. The yeast doesn’t flex much yet, and so what we have is a lovely, quiet showing of hops gathered up in the dimly seen funk of the brett. It’s like a fresh farm with no animals.

Texture is light and young; punchy with light acids and hops. Gruyere rind and pineapple finish, leaving an oily, rubbery texture grabbing every corner of my mouth. This is delicious, and it doesn’t have it together yet. There’s so much hop, so much saison yeast, and when the funk arrives it will just fucking kill it. And right now, it still kind of does.

Bottle shared by Blake at an impromptu tuesday tasting, thanks man! Pour is enticing looking cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma and flavor loaded with light dry spice and clean dry hop notes. Hints of light orange and then a wonderfully clean finish accented by hints of black pepper and a very clean hop note. This tastes a lot like de Dolle Arabier which is one of my all time favorites. It’s got a lot of character, but it’s so clean and drinkable that you could sip on E for hours.
