3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting, fairly complex aroma of apple skin, hard sheep’s milk cheese rind, dried flowers, and engine oil. Fairly dry, medium high acid flavor that doesn’t have as much character as the aroma. Pleasant overall but there are better ciders for the money.

Thanks HisBoyElroy. This pours a water thin yellow no head pour. A slightly tart lemon aroma. Extremely airy and bubbly. Almost ruins any good mouthfeel it has going. An overall slightly tart and dry citrus flavor. Nothing great. Pretty good though. The huge carbonation turns me off if anything.

pour is bright and vibrant, extremely clear, brief bubbles. One of the few carbonated spanish ciders.
Nose is full of lime and has a moderate earthy character, hints of tartness and barnyard.
Flavor is same as aroma, with added mineral notes that thankfully fall short of metallic. Easy to drink, but notably lacking in complexity compared to top examples. Very enjoyable, and far from one-note, but needs more, especially considering the carbonation and resultant fairly mundane aroma, for top score.

750ml shared with GT2. Super light straw color, high carbonation. Aroma is doughy, white grape, light flowers. Taste is super dry, really lightly sour crisp apple, not Granny Smith thankfully. Palate is really balanced, light sweetness, refreshing.

> A champagne style extremely zippy tart and explosively effervescent quenching summer cider
[ Bottle ][ Beer Study Chapel Hill NC ][ 75cl ][ $15 ][ Lost Abbey Teku ][ 4/15/14 ]
>> Pours brilliant white near neon green. Looks like champagne. Heavy champagne like carbonation. Cork came off with force. Nose is slightly funky, a tad gamey, super bright, sushi vinegar, ultra fresh heirloom apple, white peach, pear. Taste is bubbly front palate, clean and one-note mid palate with pear and Chardonnay. Back palate is a wicked quick finish of mildly tart yellow apple and unripe pear. Overall, insanely refreshing and bright. Impressive. Champagne-like, but not sulfury and stomach wrenching like blanc de blancs.
>!< ultra dry, huge carbonation

I like champagne and I like ciders. This cider is made with the champagne method and has a dry finish and incredibly bubbly palate. A very odd unusual cider. It reminds me of perennial sassionier. I liked it.
