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 gusher.........beware Poured a beautifil hazy orange with an eruption of head. Nose was hoppy with a touch of brett Flavor was bitter, too bitter for my liking.. flavor sorta fell flat for me. Either this didnt age well or the brettvwas overpowered by bitterness

ClubGonzo (4611) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 12, 2013
Bottle from trade with MtGoat. Pours a slightly hazy light orange body with a massive, bubbly white head. Aroma is fresh citric grassy tones up front, with candi sugar-like Belgian yeast esters, rich floral peachy hop tones and some dry brett touches and cellar must in the back. Very, very elegant - this one smells better than Orval! :-) Taste is dry white grape peel notes, peaches, grapefruit, grassy resinous notes and hints of honey melon and yeasty sweetness in the back. Dry finish with hints of horseblanket and citrus. Full body, sparkling carbonation. Excellent stuff; Hill Farmstead does it again! :-)

reggiedunlop (3414) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2013
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 (2654) - Gray, 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
