Brett-heavy basque cider. Bright clarity, golden color. Crisp and effervescent, rapid carbonation visible. Tangy yeast, tart acidity from the apples. Sterile gauze in the aroma, wet musty hay, completely dry and attenuated. Flavors of washed rind cheese, apples with moderate acidity, it’s pretty dry overall with a dominating dry Brett aftertaste that lingers, wet hay farmhouse notes, cheesy. Recommended to Lambic & Wild Ale fans.

Bottle. Thanks to Tommy for this! Clear gold with lively white head. Extra funky aroma, with hints of cow dung, hay, and apple. Taste is funky undertones, light Apple, and mild tartness. Funky, dry finish. Really crushable stuff, well done!

Un cidre campagnard jaune paille qui laisse monter des arômes de pommes touchées par un air d’étable, de ferme, de pied d’athlète, de moulée, de fleurs blanches poussiéreuses, de rencontre estivale, de déhanchement, de chemise nouée à la taille et de coquille d’œuf. Un goût de pommes légèrement recouvertes de cuir, d’oreilles légèrement salées, de terre sous les ongles d’une dame sauvage. Une sensation en bouche qui m’intéresse malgré cette texture plutôt aqueuse. Une finale sèche comme un heoga qui embrasse les longs cheveux des femmes en fleurs du pays Basque.

pours unclear bright golden with a nice bubbly white head, reviving. barn-plenty, sweaty hay, crushable rustic cereals, delicate pear and apple flavors, hint of sweetness - spicy honey and candied ginger; hint of tartness as well - malic, citric, lactic acid et al.; spicy wood along with soft tannins; cheese, lots of minerals - salt and calcium for instance. bright carbonation, light body, semi-dry bretty-peppery-spicy finish. very good farmhouse cider.

Bottle. Clear gold pour with white head that immediately fizzes out. Aroma is intensely funky, so much barnyard, wet hay, cow plop, light cidery aroma. Taste is much the same, very funky yet not acidic at all. Palate is light bodied with full on carbonation, bone dry. Tasty cider.

Bottle (750 ml) at home. 2013 bottle. Split 4-ways. Slightly hazy deep bright golden leaving a nice little ring of white foam. Aroma is bright, funky and farmy with oak, musty notes, apples and herbal notes. Taste is a bit less expressive than the nose but still bright and farmy with nice funk and farmhouse character, oak, musty notes, dust, apples and herbal notes. Light to medium body, but leaning toward the ligther side. Moderate carbonation. Tannic, but less than Basa Jaun. Dry. So easy drinking and quenching. I loved the farmy character. Lambic-like in many aspects. Amazing product!

Pours dull golden with a head that leaves quick and is mostly translucent. The aroma has musty apples, wild yeast, farmhouse-like and like peels are included. It has a medium body that starts with lots of carbonation on the start and then dies off and is very dry and leaves a powdery feel in the mouth. The taste starts with dry apples, sulfur, perks, hint of air sweetness, and an earthy quality that reminds me of a saison. The finish is bone dry and has dried herbs heavy. Excellent cider in every way.

750 mL bottle poured, properly I might add. Had to take lessons, but I figured it out. Thanks to Chris for sharing. Pours an apple juice gold with a big bubble head. Smokey aroma and flavor, which was fantastic. Apple and white grape to compliment. What a unique, delicious addition to the cider lineup. Awesome.

Bottle at Colony Club’s ANXO event. Clear golden yellow color, edge bubbles. Aroma of blue cheese, tannins, sweaty feet. Taste is very dusty and very very dry with tart tannins. Delicious.
