Bottle shared by Levi. Very unique lemony edges. Sour apple, lemony tartness. Very tart, not a traditional cider. Sour cider mix. Very cool.

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.

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.

Bottle shared by levifunk...thanks Levi! - Pours pale yellow with no head. Nose is band-aid, super dry apple and a bit of funkiness. Taste is real nice and tannic, dry and light apple with lots of dry funk. Has a dry finish, slick and no carbonation. Very nice stuff.
