Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and uninhibited, Hardywood Singel is a feat in balance. Sunshine golden with a fluffy head and a veil of Belgian ale yeast, Singel’s tropical fruit esters complement its spicy hop aromatics. Delicate in body, Singel’s mellow, dry finish culminates a truly ethereal experience. Hardywood Singel’s 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 pale’s I have had in recent memory.

drjoeng (1257) - SINGAPORE - APR 14, 2017
6.2%ABV. Belgian ale. Poured out yellow gold. 6SRM. Nose has steamed corn, and a hint of that stone dust, dry wood aroma that is characteristic of Belgian ale. It’s what my brain and my palate dissect the yeasty aroma into. Hint of ripe fruit aroma. Mouthfeel is beery. Palate has strong malty flavor, more so than most Belgian ales. There is fresh barley loaves, white bread, biscuits. Front of the palate is woody, dry, alcoholic and bitter. Back end has more of the same. Finish is tannin-like bitter and a bit of spiciness suggestive of cilantro or the skin of a mild chili or pepper. Brief. Clean. Good food pairing would be spicy dishes with more body like Laksa or Tom Ga or curry. Overall a very nice, well-balanced and bold interpretation of a Belgian ale. Good.

Bottle. Slightly hazy straw, nice fruity aroma. Flavorful, fruit and light spice. I also get a bit of Edam cheese or something like that. Finish lingers. Maybe not as light and dry as the style dictates, which is OK. It still goes down easy. Better than so many American Belgian singles.

Ktwse (4875) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Pours clear golden with low white head. Aroma of citrus, funk, mild wheat. Taste is mild sweet, lightly funky fruity. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

MoBeerMoProblem (1) - SINGAPORE - JAN 29, 2017 does not count
Quite a nice effervescence but beyond that, bit of a nothing beer. The Flavours is very subtle to the point of Nor really being there, equally there’s Little aroma to re-enforce it.
