Hardywood Singel

Hardywood Singel Wine Details
Price:

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, 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.

Varietal Definition
Abbey Ale:
A fruity, strong ale made by secular brewers in Belgium and based on the products of the Trappist abbeys. Abbey beers began to appear shortly after the Second World War, when secular breweries took commercial advantage of the true cultural heritage of Belgium's monastery brewing traditions, and the growing success of Trappist beers. Some Abbey beers were made by genuine monasteries until the early 20th century, such as Affligem Abbey, who brewed until the First World War, and whose name now appears on beers made by the Heineken owned Affligem Brewery. Abbey beers are not a fixed style, but will tend to be a brune (a Belgian brown ale, sometimes termed dubbel), a strong pale ale or tripel, and a blonde ale or blond.
