Bottle. Pale amber with a faint white ring. Somewhat dank wine cellar aroma with tannins, dry, tart, oak, yeast moderate body and carbonation, acidic with some vinegar, becomes thinner on the finish but enjoyable.

ctipping (364) - Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2015
375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 5/2013. Originally reviewed 9/23/2013. Hazy deep orange, almost amber. Decent white head. A few surface islands. Wine aroma. Strong malty aroma. A little bit acidic. Yeast aroma. Very winey taste. Strong white wine. Malty again, with a bit of sweetness. Tartness builds slowly. Some caramel back there. A little heavy. Malty and tangy. Medium carbonation. Greater than the sum of its parts. Not my favorite Civil Disobedience, but damn good nonetheless.

Bottle @ Steve_0’s HF party. Thanks Stephen! Pours a cloudy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Peach / apricot, white wine, lemon funky nose. Kind of juicy. Light body. Somewhat tart. Light cheese, tropical fruit, and a ton of orange. Good but maybe a bit faded.

Boutip (5266) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2015
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.

Blairgus (3467) - California, USA - MAR 21, 2015
21 mar 2015, bottle. Gold and hazy. For a saison this is rather tart on the nose. A bit sweet but tart throughout. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Really nice. Wood influence is more than just noticeable but not too strong. Sweet, tart but not too much so. This is a really good farmhouse/sour.

andrew_drinks (234) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle from trade with Leighton - thanks. Poured into a tulip at home, clear gold, with a small head. Aroma of pineapple, tart grape must (like Gruner Veltliner), tropical fruit. Light carbonation - would have liked just a touch more to lift it up. Lightly tart, light pale malt, citrus, thyme. Some woody, creamy oak present. Deft.
