In short: A tart and somewhat acidic Sidra that is a bit low on the funky.
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed fresh a week after purchase.
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body with no head to speak of.
To me a typical Sidra is: Funky aroma of medium intensity with many light color fruits in the back (not just apples). Body is medium in size, a texture that is both juicy and doughy and with minimal carbonation. Taste is a lot less apple-forward than a regular cider with apples but also various light color tropical/citrus/exotic fruits. Yeast presence accompanied by a bready sensation. Typical Sidras have a mild sourness and ends with a mild-medium acidic bite. Thirst quenching and also a bit nourishing.
This one: Overall a little more acidic and a little less funky than most Sidras I’ve had, a slightly below average example of the style.
