Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
In short: A very acidic and moderately funky Sidra. Below average example of the style.
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed fresh a week after purchase from a Spanish store.
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body with almost no head.
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: A little less funky. Fruitiness is more towards apples skin and tart apples. Carbonation was almost non-existent, very low even by Sidra standard. One of the most acidic Sidra I’ve had. With all this acidity and the lactic fermentation it almost felt like I was drinking some kind of apple lambic. I think this is one of less good Sidra out there, and if thinking that my opinion is the only right one counted as calories intake I would be afraid to become obese while in reality I slowly die of malnutrition.
