3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle. Pale golden body with sediments and almost no head. Aroma is fresh apple with a little hint of wood. Flavor is quite mild, dry and acidic apple, rather moderate in barnyard and funk compared with other Basque sidras. Still nice and refreshing, a bit thin body but a great refreshment.

In short: bitter cider.
Pouurs hazy greenish golden with little white head, vanishing. Little lacing. Tart, leathery, wet, apple nose. Light body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is fruity, tart, "volatile acidity" that vanishes fast and leads to a more bitter finish, dry, astrigent. Refreshing and enjoyable.

A Mes rate. Bottle at Txikiteo, Barcelona.
Wow, really was not expecting this one. Beautifully tart and almost over-ripe on the nose with a dry, take your breath away sourness. Flavour; woo hoooo this is excellent. Really tart and dry but with a bolo punch sweetness that balances it out beautifully along wiht a chewy wooden note that gives it just the right amount of body to make it not too thin but not sticky enough to harm the drinkability. Amazinglysmooth considering how dry it is and the assertive citrus in the finish fades seamlessly into a lasting cantaloupe aftertaste. A bloody excellent bit of fermentation. These Spanish ciders can vary wildly batch to batch. If all of these are this good, then I wish I could drink this regularly.
