RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Still, with a very pale lemon yellow color. Very nice aroma of apple with notes of dust, leather, and cider vinegar. Flavor is quite tart - a bit wild - with a cheesy note backing up the lemony acidity.

handbottle thanks to bhensonb. is this really a cider? wow super tart and funky cider if it is. poured yellow with no head but had some decent legs. aroma was tart lemon and a little cheese in the background. flavor was sours as could be with lemon, peach, and what seemed to be some oak. super dry. interesting to say the least.

bhensonb (11044) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Bottle from Corti Brothers in Sacramento, CA. Marked 2008. Pours Hazy gold with a few temporary bubbles. Nice slightly sour apple aroma. Near medium body. It is mildly sour and somewhat oaky and astringent. I could believe it spent some time in wood. Quite tasty. Reminds of Flemish sour ales. Sort of. Maybe of RR stuff. Sort of.

Hazy golden yellow. No carbonation. Aroma- damp, musty funk followed by slight green apple finish. Gym socks. Bleeeeech. Disgusting.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Bottled. This was one downright funky, dirty cider, and I loved every second of it. Super funky, dirty sock, musty cellar, oxidized and cheese aroma. Ace. The flavor holds up, adding a mild sweetness in the mid with a very musky, wild finish. Super drinkable. Excellent.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2009
Bottle Shared at Ryan & Max’s Tasting @ Pauls. Pours a pale yellow body with a thin bubbly head. Sweet tart apples, skins and cider notes. Acidic dry light apples. Decent enough.

juiceisloose (1055) - Windermere, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Bottle courtesy cheeseman. This one pours a hazy golden color with just a few bubbles around the rim. The aroma shows tart lemons and green apples, old musty elements, and some mild funk. The flavor follows with the funky tart green apples, lemon peel, citric acidity, and some old funk. This has a nice little sour flavor. Light bodied with subtle carbonation and a very dry finish. Pretty nice easy drinking cider.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2009
The 2nd Basque Cider i’ve tried. Tart funky apples on the nose, lemon peels, with hints of sweet apple juice. Pours cloudy gold, still. Tart apples, crab apples, medium sourness, a little lighter than the sarasola, but very good as well.
