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.

Pours a hazy honey color with a huge, foamy white head...bottle was a slow gusher. Aroma has notes of pair and herbal bitterness...very lightly medicinal like a faint iodine. Flavor is very rindy and herbal with some bretty notes and funk...still some pear here...definitely funky...mildly medicinal but not to its detriment. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is bretty/rindy/herbal.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by czar, thanks Martin! Hazy yellow with a frothy white head and good lacing. Aroma is really interesting with brettanomyces, loads of fruits, citrus and slight spices. Taste is about the same with a slight bitter/pineapple sticky finish. Mouthfeel is dry. Carbonation is prickly. Very good Belgian Ale. If it was not of the sticky bitter finish, it would be a great beer.

bottle shared with friends. murky pale yellow with a frothy white head, good retention and lacing. green, citrus, soft brettiness, spices, hint of acidity, leafiness. prickly carbonation, light body, abrupt (read not necessarily enjoyable) herbal-grassy finish. overall: a very good offering from HF, again.

Lukaduke (2398) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle thanks to Dave ! Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with tons of sticky gaseous foam that rises with little agitation. On the nose its complex and inviting... nice lemony tartness mingles with citrus, barnyard funk and some nice vinous fruit. The palate is as yummy as the nose and just as complex with great juicy orange, bitter citrus peel, hop funk and vinous tartness all coming together in a well balanced focused finish. Wow

[4718-20120818] Bottle. Mild snakeskin yeast aroma. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy off-white. Light lemony yeast flavour has a boozy punch. Medium body. Nice, drinkable. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5

Boutip (4917) - 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.

cpetrone84 (1564) - 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.
