COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and uninhibited, Hardywood Singel is a feat in balance. Sunshine golden with a fluffy head and a veil of Belgian ale yeast, Singels tropical fruit esters complement its spicy hop aromatics. Delicate in body, Singels mellow, dry finish culminates a truly ethereal experience. Hardywood Singels stylistic inspiration originates with the Trappist brewers of western Europe, who are often celebrated for their gloriously complex dubbels and tripels, and whose devotion to crafting heavenly libations is second to none. Unknown to many, some of the Trappist brewers also brew a milder ale for daily consumption within the walls of the monastery. Hardywood Singel is our interpretation of this style.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle from a friend. Poured a cloudy golden-orange color with a fluffy, dense white head that clings to the sides of the glass as it slowly recedes. Soft, delicate apricot and white peach pair with tart lemon notes alongside a dusty, earthy yeastiness and a soft, honey-tinged doughy sweetness offset by a lightly spicy hoppiness. Smooth, lightly sweet doughy entry with hints of honey leads into a moderate earthiness paired with a lightly spicy, drying hoppiness with undertones of soft fruits in the form of apricot, peach, red apple that linger into the dry finish where they are offset with a soft, slightly chewy yeastiness. Moderate carbonation, and moderate yet crisp mouth feel. They did a good job offsetting dryness with sweetness, all the while remaining delicate, creating an incredibly drinkable beer. Overall, I absolutely dig this stuff, one of the best American Belgian pales I have had in recent memory.

Delicious and super refreshing beer. Theres a ton of beautiful tropical sweet aromas, accompanied by phenolic clove, bubblegum and banana. Its peppery and has a nice crackery biscuity malt taste. I will say, its a little dangerous. Its super refreshing and easy to drink. I could probably put down a six pack then have to crawl to bed. Its just really delicious, and I definitely recommend trying it. Cheers.

Ernest (7476) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Draft at Tria Taproom, Philly. Head is initially average sized, creamy, white, fully lasting. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of banana, taffy, bubble gum. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy/creamy/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A banana - bubble gum bomb, unfortunately. Smells more like a Weissbier than anything else, a rather artificial one. Overly sweet in the mouth. Not very good and certainly not very Belgian.
