Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks YK23. Hazy golden. Aroma of green apples, a bit of sulfur, and a bit of oak. Sourish flavor of apples, a bit of sweetness, some funky notes, a lactic hints and vanilla hints. Slightly sticky yet dry mouthfeel. Interesting and not bad at all.

Small bottle. Had this at Mundaka campsite, Basque Country, Northern Spain sat outside Frank (camper) 06.07.11 Pours hazy yellow/orange very slight light carbonation felt in the mouth. Very ripe apples on the nose, in fact the best nose of the Basque ciders that I’ve had this far. Bit punchy at first with a thrusty, tangy, appley bite, nice streaky citrus, tasty.

750 ml corked bottle sent to me by bvc. 080403 L - JJJH - 8 stamped on the bottle. Pour is cloudy orange yellow with only a touch of foamy bubbles the depart quickly. Aroma is sharp tart apple, along with an earthy mineral yeastiness. Taste is the fruit of the apple - tart and natural. There is also a bunch of dry leathery earthiness in the taste, that really dries out the fruit nicely, but then lingers a little medicinally in the finish. Palate is thin to medium, lower carbonation, with the medicinal and sulfur aftertaste. Interesting one, thanks Brandon.

Pale yellow pour with a bit of light haziness. The nose is very unusual. Light appley nose with a kiss of light acetic character and loads of unusual herbal character. A little bit of lactic character as well and some light spontaneous fermented character. Wild and funky with a bit of almost malty sweet character. The most unusual tasting cider I’ve had to date… I think I need to find more of this Asturian stuff to sate my interest in the region.

750ml foiled and corked with the cork stamped 10 08. I picked this one up at bottleworks off of Shaughn’s recommendation. Pours a really light milky yellow with a couple of flabby large bubbles that go away in about 30 seconds. Right away I am greeted with a killer barnyard lambic like funk. As I inhale deeper and swirl my glass, the apple is trying to come out. Sweet crisp golden apple, but with the funk it almost gives off some plastic. No carbonation to speak of but is does have a lambic like feel...slightly dry and chaulky. Dry golden apple, dry wood, horse blanket and funk. I have never had a cider like this...I am really digging it.

Bottle courtesy of Joe at Paul’s tasting. Pours a light milky yellow with no head. Light funky farmhouse aromas, touches of vanilla. Medium bodied, lightly spiced. Finishes with a light apple and spice and smoke. A little baconlike on the finish. Very interesting.

Shared by JoeMcPhee. Pours a hazy yellow orange. Aroma is lightly plastic off phenolics, solvent, yellow and green skin apple must and skin, earthy, slight smoke, meaty and matchstick. Flavor is fruity green apple skin, light pear notes, tannic, more phenolic, medicinal light smoke or match, prickly finish. Meh.

Labeled as Sidra Bere, Sidra Natural, Casa-Bere Aran - Astigarraga Guipuzcoa. Nice, fairly clean natural cider. Fresh apple juice, nice tartness, some honey and very little plastic/band-aid in either the nose or the taste. Finish is a bit watery, but with a nice tannic bite. Decent stuff.
