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.

AirForceHops (3516) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 17, 2014
750 bottle, vintage 2014. Glowing bright yellow color with thick lasting head retention. Aroma is baby diaper and funky ass Brett, light citrus.

Flavor shows me dusty yeast, barnyard hints upfront with a Brett and citrus in the center. Finish has a citrus rind, grass and Brettanomyces. Medium body with a soft creamy carbonation. Complex funky citrus flavor, anybody who likes lightly funky brews with enjoy this a great deal. Layers of funky Brett.

Luk_ (209) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 First bottled batch. Hazy golden pour with kick-ass lacing. Aroma is definitly hoppy, very funky (lots of bretts). You can also feel the white wine barrel. More bitter than expected, crushed by funky bretts and a splash of citrus. On top of it, bready malts for taming purposes. Full bodied with lively carbonation. This is a multilayered masterpiece by Shaun, once again succeeding in incorporating many different flavors harmoniously. 4.7 2nd bottled batch (april). Lots of white wine in the aroma but bretts and funk are definitly more subtle. Taste is less powerful, it has moderate bitterness and wildness. I will give some time to my other bottle to develop. 4.2.

77ships (4298) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 26, 2014
Thanks to AdamJackson. 750 ml. bottle sampled @ ZBF 2014. Pours a hazy bright golden with little head. Nose is incredible, very intense fruity passion fruit and pineapple punch, peaches, mixed with crisp brett and bretty white wine. Smell leads you to believe that you are going to get a fruit cocktail upfront in the taste, instead you start of with slightly bitter zest, white pepper, esters, plenty of bretty white wine, followed by citrus, juicy pineapple and peach. Faint tartness. Effervescent, very easy to drink. Truly outstanding.

gEUS (1266) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 26, 2014
Bottle shared by a generous soul on the ZBF14. Pours hay-ish yellow with a slight head. Spicy and yeasty aroma, not your typical saison. Light body, slight sour, very fresh fruity notes. Nice, but not that top.
