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.

Bottle. Thanks Steve! VERY carbonated, makes it tough to really pour. Great head retention means trying to drink a beer through 3 inches of foamy white head. Bubblegum, slight spice, and funky brett notes in the nose. Cloudy straw yellow color. Belgian and brett notes converge in this funky beer. The upfront is dominated by the belgian traditional like saison flavor and then the funkiness takes over. Some bitter notes in the end. Medicinal aftertaste with aspirin.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle shared with friends. Pours cloudy gold with a fluffy, white head. Smells of strong, fresh manure, some herbs, and wet hay. Tangy, mildly tart flavor, light grass, citrus rind, poo. Light to medium bodied with high carbonation. Light sweetness to finish, mild dryness, plastic grass, light fund, poo, some tangy lime and citrus. Great manure character.

Marheb (1945) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
UPDATED: APR 18, 2014 (Batch 2013):Bouteille explosive et dentelle anarchique sur une robe blonde assez trouble. Beaucoup de chêne et une bonne sécheresse en fin de bouche viennent s’appuyer sur le brett, l’écorce d’orange et les houblons variés, belle amertume redoutable pour couronner le tout.*4.3 (Batch 2014): Les notes grassement vineuses dominent et laissent la place aux fruits tropicaux alors que le dry-hop fait vraiment des dommage, chaque gorgée est survolante.*4.7

JulienHuxley (2852) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle. Beautiful glowing hazy gold pour with white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is very complex, lots of oak, brett is thick, winey character, some orange peel. Taste is slightly sour but with a strong hop bitterness, bretty, woody. Palate is amazing, really effervescent, medium bodied, super dry. Delicious

Night of the Funk. The aroma of this one reminded me of a summer hayride, and the taste reinforced the image. Delicious.

callmemickey (2475) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2012
UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 Hazy golden wheat colored body. Rocky white head. Soapy skim. Wheat, lemon orange and grapefruit. Medium to thin bodied. Perhaps too thin but the Effervescence is nice and the lingering makes up for it.

Bottle from hbmason...thanks Tim! - Pours hazy amber with a fluffy white head. Nose is light lemony hops, yeasty with a bit of funky, earthy brett. Taste has lots of citrus rind, light lemon, grassy hops, and a light pal malt base. Smooth and not too in-your-face bitter. Big carbonation, fluffy, with lots of bite. My favorite HF so far.
