Basadere, named for the “wild woman” of Basque mythology, is a hearty, unfiltered, acidic cider that is made with a blend of 30 estate-grown, heirloom apple varetials.

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.

750ml split with GT2. SImilar darker golden color to the Basa Jaun, quick fizz. Nose is fairly muted, some peach, more apple-juicy and simple. Taste is lightly acidic, no funk, bright apple juice and peach. Clean and refreshing, but nothing like the Basa Jaun.

> A bright, more apple-juicy cider with mild acid and major tannic skin and barrel character

[ Bottle ][ Beer Study Chapel Hill NC ][ 75cl ][ $16 ][ Lost Abbey Teku ][ 4/10/14 ]
>> After a stubborn champagne cork, the bottle pops with heavy carbonation. Bubbling, high carbonation pour yields a chill hazed deep orange gold like the Basa Jaun though slightly lighter color. Nose doesn’t hold a candle to the Basa Jaun. It is simpler, mild peach, flash of peach vinegar, sweet sauerkraut, something meaty like honey ham. Taste is simple- clean apple juice, very tannic barrel, lots of dusty/woody character. Palate is lightly acidic, slightly too woody/skin tannic for me. Overall, when drinking this I am thinking "cider" the whole time. Seems silly but with the best ciders I’ve had, I’m never thinking that. Rather, my head spins with a thousand flavors and ’cider’ or ’apple juice’ is never one of them. In this vein, it reminds me more of an English or American cider, which in of themselves are a step below Basque, Norman, and Breton ciders.

>!< Very simple, big woody tannic and skin balance

BeerandBlues2 (9081) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle at home with scallops, swordfish, and asparagus. Pours very effervescent, lightly hazy gold with a large, fizzy, rapidly diminishing white head. Aroma is heavy medicinal and band aid phenols, earthy apples and light biscuit. Flavor is heavy phenols, sweet and tart apples with a dry finish. Light body and moderate to high carbonation.

deyholla (5972) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep orangish gold with a thin white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is extremely funky with a roasted apple note and a decent amount of horse blanket. Flavor has a combination of horse blanket, earthy apples and a bit of roasted apples.
