COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blend of 5 beers from Four Select Oak Barrels.
Civil Disobedience, our non-violent protest against the homogenization of flavor, comes in the form of a spontaneous, circumstantial, and unpredictable series of beer releases. We relinquish control in favor of an anarchistic collaboration of microbial activity. This is the expression of our conscience, our opposition to oppression, and an act of creative freedom.

Marheb (1749) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
Des petits fruits rouge, du pain brûlé, des notes lactiques, rustiques, vineuses et chaque gorgée voit une facette prendre le dessus. Elle a vieillie merveilleusement.

brystmar (1113) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2013
From notes on 8/11/2013 at the HF FoFA.

Gorgeous pour! Somehow sports a dark, creamy, viscous body despite the carbonation. Tart and funky with unmistakable notes of soured plums. Oak barrels add a pleasant accent.

Another excellent farmhouse ale from HF.

Scopey (5528) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle shared by the HF ex-pat, Leighton. It pours cloudy, darkest mahogany brown with a thick beige head. The nose is wood, toast, vanilla, sour berry, dark fruit, mustiness, mustiness, cocoa and toffee. The taste is mildly sour, tart berry, mild roast, toast, lemon, granny smith apple, copper, earth, vinous, sherbet and light acidity with a dry, tart finish. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. Hides abv pretty well. More like a sour brown than a saison. Pretty nice stuff whatever it is!

Bottle. Pour is dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma is interesting - notes of dark fruit, light funk, faint roasted malt, light cherry, and red wine notes. Flavor is tart up front with red wine notes following. Also notes of wood and faint fruit. Tasty, but the finish is a bit harsh.
