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.

Sampled at FoFA 2013. Pours dark brown with a lacy head. Aroma of sour/tart notes, some dark malts, and some wine and oak. Flavor a nice, complex blend of everything. Smooth texture. A good beer.

jredmond (8046) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle shared with Clockwork and Joel at Torst. Pours a deep brownish body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is subtle tart fruits, wine barrel, oak, yeast and wheat. Mouthfeel is perfect - soft delicate funk, dark sour cherries, wine, oak, wheat and yeast. Great dark, sour saison.

Scopey (14000) - 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!

beernbourbon (1585) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 16, 2013
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.

BiereLuc (1275) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
Bire brune au nez sauvage, acide en olfaction, avec un peu de gomme baloune. En bouche, lacidit flirte avec la complexit du profil sauvage, le bois... le vin rouge. Une belle bire de dgustation.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 13, 2013
Bouteille de 750 ml, lors dune dgustation. Armes de brettanomyces, de malt lgrement torrfi, de chne et de vin rouge. Robe brune aux reflets roux, effervescence assez active et peu de mousse. En bouche, le passage en ft de vin est bien remarqu, avec une forte prsence de chne et des notes vineuses. Le malt apporte surtout des accents chocolats, alors que les brettanomyces contribuent une belle rusticit. Rappelle la Phenomenology of Spirits de la mme brasserie. Trs bon, mais un peu sous le niveau des saisons de Hill Farmstead.

Craft Clerkenwell Tasting. Thanks as always to Leighton for keeping us in Hill Farmstead. Hazy dark red - brown beer, Big pale cream coloured head. Light fluffy palate, semi dry. Light sourness. Mildly tart fruits. Touch of malt cream. Semi dry finish. Not bad! Drinks well below its abv.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2013
dark sepia, cream ring oily small bubbled head. Dusty nose has currents, lightly sour stout qualities, beer nearing consecration without the acidity. Flavor more acidic but balanced, light cherry stout notes upfront merging with Brett and hay, drying mid before a slick finish with light raisin, slick acids. Balanced but fairly simple for HF, and not nearly their common lightness.
