Thanks to Aaron for opening up this beer!

375 ml bottle sealed with a pressure cap.

6oz pour into a HF wine stem.

Appearance: Glowing pale straw yellow bodied beer with slight haze and thick cap of white head. Head drops down to thick ring around the glass. A gentle swirl immediately brings back the full cap if not even more head atop the beer.

Smell: brine, red wine, oak, and acetic sour in the nose.

Taste: the flavor of this beer is all about the lambic and a little bit about the wine barrel. Slight brine note with acetic sourness like an unblended lambic would taste like. Red wine barrel in middle of the beer. Minimal funk. Slightly earthy. Finishes with more acetic sourness that is moderate in intensity, oak, and a light brine note. Not as balanced as most barrel aged HF beers that I have drank, but I like the overall effect that the flavor profile delivers.

Mouthfeel: light bodied almost medium boided beer with low carbonation. The intensity of the lambic flavors tends to decrease drinkability, but I really enjoy how this beer lingers on your palate for atleast 5 minutes after each sip.

Overall: This is my first beer from the Civil Disobedience series by Hill Farmstead. CD7 wasnt really what I thought it was going to be. This beer has a stronger lambic influence and is less identifiable as a saison. With all that said... I really did enjoy it because I like lambics and saisons, so it was a win win situation. Looking forward to trying more beers from this series because it is truely a unique beer.
