COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tradition and knowledge are important for both natural cider and the Zapiain family. It is a natural drink with body, fizzy with its own bubbles from its own fermentation. It is light and easy to drink. A pleasure for both its customers. It should be drunk cold, but not too cold, in a long wide glass.

erickok (4250) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 2, 2012
Bright yellow, slightly hazy and no head. Fanta aroma, with some crisp green apples thrown in. Some sugar too. Bit of bubbles, which don’t really survive in your mouth. Taste is more citric than expected, an interesting twist. Drinks quite easily, maybe not as refreshing as could be. Actually burns a very tiny bit from the sourness, which makes the ending quite nice. Interesting to try this Spanish cider. Still prefer French ones, though. (From a Valencian wine shop)

Beer4000 (5046) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2011
Served in a glass at a tapas restaurant in Spain. Totally unclear yellow/orange body with no head and moderate carbonation. Aroma is pretty rustic acidic apple and relatively much yeast. Flavor is semi-dry, acidic sour apple with yeast and hint of flowers. A bit unusually and definitively refreshing. Not complex, but it feels very real and I appreciate that a lot.

3fourths (8554) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 29, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2011 heavy stinky foot must nose with cheesecloth and acerbic apple must. zesty but minerallic and chemical-like yeast. strong bitterness growing across mid-palate sustaining into a lengthy finish. sharp acid throughout. much better the second time around.

sebletitje (7498) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2011
lot KN22, bouteille de 2009. dorée/foin, plate avec qcq bulles. Pomme aigre avec qcq notes de sucre et de levure, le tout garde cet aspect organique et bio de pommes fraiches ainsi que de fleur de pommier, légère note de vinaigre/aigreur riches en tanins. Reste typique dans le style de cette région.

thewolf (11438) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2009
Tap @ La Sagardi, Barcelona.
Pours a nice yellow, but quite muddy. No head. Aroma has oak, green apples, zesty apple peel and quite a lot of sulphur. Almost no carbonation, fair dry mouthfeel, though it’s a bit thin. Flavour has some clear vinegar notes, green apples, some burning sensation in my throat. Light sweet spple and fair dryness.

Botella. Hazy goldenish colour. Fresh apple sour aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a nice apple frutiness with a very pleasant soft sourness. Aplle sour finish. Yum!
