3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted many times over the past couple of years, this is one of my favorite ciders. This bottle came from Midtown. Pours hazy dark yellow with no head. The nose is more sour apple than anything else, but there is a bit of tart lemon and it definitely has some funky yeast to it. The flavor is the same, very dry with some tannic structure, green apple, tart lemon, with a ton of funky barnyard and cheesy yeast. The body is light with a bit of carbonation and a long funky tart apple finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by Levi. Very unique lemony edges. Sour apple, lemony tartness. Very tart, not a traditional cider. Sour cider mix. Very cool.

Bottle at Murray’s Cheese Bar. Slightly hazy golden pour. Aroma is funky and slightly medicinal. A lot of tannic character and some nice bright tartness. Very dry and a bit Brett as well. Lovely sidra

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample. Hazy yellow color, pretty much flat. Aroma of mild barnyard, dusty fruit and apple skins. Taste is full bodied fruit with a slight edge of tartness. Not as funky as the Ribela we had just before this, but pretty tasty.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
came across this by chance, visiting a spanish bistro. this is one of the most interesting ciders i’ve ever had. cloudy pale straw color, funky farmy aromas. sharp acidic quality, a little sulfur. tangy, tart, farmy. there’s a curious salty, meat-like note in the finish -- very subtle -- similar to salami! i love this! this is what i’d imagein a cider made by hanssens would taste like.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle from Bushwackers. A really cool presentation. One of my first (or first?) ventures into Basque cider. Pours a cloudy yellow color, almost green, almost no carbonation. Some particulates floating around. A sour apple funky barnyard nose. Really interesting flavor: tart apples, sawdust, some cheese, funkiness. Certainly quite dry, cider bone dry flavors. Is unique. I wonder what this is fermented with? The softness/no carb for the most part is actually OK with me.

I’ve had this a few times. Golden pour, pretty sour/tart, and some serious yeastiness. Good cider. different from your american ones.
