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 March of 2016.

Bottle at HFS. Dark orange pour with some initial white foamy head. Smells like a hoppy Arthur - that hop and tart aroma combo. Flavor is just that. Itís a hopped up, wine infused tasting saison-y ale. Taste lingers and the hop really hits home in the beginning but fades to this nice tart wine flavor.

750ml bottle shared with Seb and bought yesterday at he brewery. Aroma: nice apples, floral, white wine, oaky giving some vanilla aroma. Really reminds me of the TDD X. App: hazy orange, small white head, thick lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, really vinous, silky, light bitter and subtle sour finish. Overall: great stuff. Really reminds me of TDD X. Great stuff. Would like it to be a bit less bitter but still, this is pretty good.

Shared at Zwanze 2015, I think itís probably not as interesting as it might have been fresher when the hops were much more alive. Itís still pretty damn good.

Happy to get to try this. A very well made beer that has characteristics of a pale, but is more like a saison. Funky nose, and tastes good, but not great.

í14 release. Pours an orange color with a creeping head. Also a slow gusher from the bottle. Aromas of fruity yeast, some hops. Heavy funk with a load of brett. Taste is funky and dusty with fruity and floral hints. Pretty dry with a medium body. Seems like the Brett has eaten most of the residual sugar which prompted the gushing action along with the over attenuation, which really works well here actually. This is god nectar.

750 mL bottle. Batch 1. Originally reviewed 5/25/2013. Itís a hazy orange with a huge off white head. It slowly oozes out of the bottle pushing gunky crap with it. Sticky lacing. Extremely bretty aroma, but lots of flavor behind it. Still some hops there. Lots of citrus. Taste is Earthy and very bretty. Mimics the nose almost identically. Citrus more prominent. Lots of earthiness in the finish. Slight bitterness. Medium body. Well carbonated but not overly so. Arguably better than Mimosa. Has more complexity than Mimosa because of the fresh hop character, even at this age.

Hazy golden with a foamy sticky white head. Amazing aroma of earthy sourness and sweet pink Chapstick. In a good way. Smooth Belgian musty funk flavor with bright yeasty tones and an earthy malt.

Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is wood, mild spices, some mild acidic notes as well. Flavour is wood, spices, herbs and some floral notes. Quite fruity and earthy aftertaste. Wellbalanced, but not the best of HF beers.

(Bottle, 0.75 l - 2014 vintage, at laitiís, 20150613, thanks) The beer poured golden and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had tartness, fruitiness, dry wood-like scents and apple seeds. Palate was medium bodied and dryish with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, tartness, wood-like dryness, sourness and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity, sour and hoppy. Very well done balanced brew with tartness and hoppiness.

750ml bottle - thanks VastActiv!
Hazy pale orange, but as this was a gusher I have to punish it (-1 to look), brief head. Pleasant apricotty wood aged, bretty, aroma. Sharp palate, refreshing, and nice carbonation. Sharp acidic taste, fruity and apricotty, but predominantly acidic. A strange sour/pale ale hybrid, not entirely sure this is what the brewer was aiming for, in particular if he doesnít have enough control over the process to keep the beer in the bottle upon opening. Not sure what the fuss is about, this is only decent, nothing to gush over.
