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 (Pske) 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.

13P 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.

maekchu (3754) - Hirakata, - OCT 7, 2012
Bomber. Big thanks to KyotoLefty! Manure-covered demons escaping into the ether, crushing citrus fruit and raining it down on the earth. Cloudy pale yellow. Wow! Explosions of fruit in the initial; mid palate is full of overripe and even rotten fruit; final is sharp and tart and stay on the tongue a good long whle. Medium body, with a lot of tongue scraping. Astounding stuff. Exceptionally complex, in both aroma and flavor. One guy at the table kept a quarter-glass of this for a few hours, so we could occasionally have a scent of it. Transporting and transfixing stuff.

750ml 2014 bottling of E. Hasnt dried out as much as expected after all this time, and the funk level is moderate. Not a brett bomb by any means. Hop punch from release is obviously gone, now has a more rounded earthy orange character with some stonefruit and Belgian yeast spice in the finish. Also some touches of light sweet bready grain and honey notes. The fading of the hops revealed much more of a Belgian charactee than expected. Pretty balanced out right now in the profile. I preferred the somewhat dreggy pours from the second half of the bottle. Very enjoyable, but this is definitey one to drink now if youve still got it.

Frank (4146) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2016
This tastes like a Hill Farmstead beer and thats a good thing. Its cloudy w/ a creamy white head. There seems to be a lot of tropical fruit such as you get from some strains of brett. Theres definitely a bit of hops in the mix as well but its pretty subdued. There is some implied tartness by some more fruity aromas once tasted. Its a bit bitter and feels balanced and drinkable. I could drink a ton of this stuff.
