This is actually my first review of a beer from Hill Farmstead’s Civil Disobedience series even though I have tried several and have many more in the cellar. The Civil Disobedience beers are typically a blend of various barrel aged beers and have included some of the more rare offerings from Hill including Art, Ann, Mimosa and Juicy. CD15 is a blend of barrels that was then aged on “mangos… many, many mangos”.
CD15 pours a very clear pale orange with thin white head that disappeared quickly leaving a small ring and minimal lacing. Aroma was slightly funky with some mango, citrus and wine. Taste was juicy mango, very little brett funk and not a lot of wine barrel but just enough to be noticeable.
Overall this is an excellent beer that has enough complexity to make it interesting but isn’t overwhelming.
