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 March of 2016.

75 cl bottle @ home, bottled 2014. Thanks jtclockwork & VastActiv!
Aroma has strong earthy notes, citrus and grapefruit. Feels like a farmhouse saison. Flavour is tart with strong earthy notes, lots of citrus, some grapefruit and orange. Dry finish. Very tart and citrusy. And very farmhouse.

750ml bottle, 2014 vintage. Thanks VastActiv!

Pours yellowish orange with a massive foamy head. Aroma of oak, ripe fruits, yeast, earthy notes, spices, hops, bretta, hints of herbal notes and grass. Taste is funky yeasty, farmyardy and earthy with some bretta, oak, wood, fruits, grass and herbal notes. Finish is funky, woody, oaky and rustic with some bretta, ripe fruits and funky yeastiness. Pretty good.

rxeight (2620) - Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2015
750 bottle, dark lord line share. Cloudy light yellow. In one word it’s yeasty. Barnyard, pepper, dry white wine. I guess for me it has way to much of the Brett and barnyard stuff going on and not enough sour to balance it out. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Probably more wrong with me.

Mr_Abner (337) - Michigan, USA - APR 26, 2015
2014 Bottle into an HF glass. Pours golden with a white head. Aromas of HF yeast, Brett, musty funk, citrus. Taste is similar. Lots of musty funk in the taste up front; lightly bitter, some citrus, finishes tart. A lot more funk than I normally enjoy in my beers.... Would love to have tried this when fresh.

Swan Song at Bruce’s. Thanks to Manny G. Hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Nose of mild piss and sweet malts. Palate is airy and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Light dry malt cream. Mildly sour orange and lemon. Some peel. Little yeast. Light bitterness in the airy dry finish. Nice flavour and pretty drinkable, the nose a bit pissy.
