Hill Farmstead Civil Disobedience from a 12 oz bottle to a small snifter.
Has more clarity than expected but a weak head.
Wild ale here, but not challenging (as many are for me). Very Tart. Fruity (non-specific). Slifght hint of vinegar.

O: excellent for style.

Bottled 05 2013 batch 6

Pours a hazy and very dark golden yellow color with orange/banana colored hues and a one finger white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.

The aroma is kind of bland with a decent spice and earthy funk presence. Subtle oak and earthy funky along with barnyard, grassy hops, straw, peppery spice and light fruit. Opens up a little as it warms but the nose isn't too inviting.

Much more interesting than it smells with soft carbonation and a nice balance of oak barrel, musty, grassy funk, zesty spice, sweet citrus and light fruit. Dry oak/toothpick but it's not overwhelming with hints of white pepper and ginger, citrus zest, apple and pear. Well balanced and easy to drink. Pretty complex and much better than anticipated.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 5/2013.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange, almost amber. Decent white head. A few surface islands.

Smell - Wine aroma. Strong malty aroma. A little bit acidic. Yeast aroma.

Taste - Very winey. Strong white wine. Malty again, with a bit of sweetness. Tartness builds slowly. Some caramel back there.

Mouthfeel - A little heavy. Malty and tangy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Greater than the sum of its parts. Not my favorite Civil Disobedience, but damn good nonetheless.

Pour is transparent golden amber with a white head. Nose is bright, juicy, apple skin and some malt. Taste is dry, soft carbonation and a light body. Apple skin, pear, some malt complexity with a moderate tartness but a fair bit of sweetness.
Check with the guys, struggled to come up with descriptions.

Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color with a medium white head with minimal retention and light lacing. Aroma of funky yeast notes with light vinous notes and some tart notes. Taste is a mix of light acidity notes with some tart notes with funky yeast notes. Light wine barrel notes are also noticeable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nice level of complexity in this one.
