3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

A Mes rate: bottle at Taverna Basca Irati in Barca.
The barman was well pleased with himself when he poured this holding the bottle behind the back of his neck into two glasses he held down by his waist. Sadly for him, I knew it was coming but I still gave him a polite clap. Still it was the most novel pour I have seen. Anyway, a cleanish yellow gold colour. Slight sulfur in the aroma but some nice juicy notes sort it out. More peel than flesh in the flavour. Nice casky feel with a good dry woody finish plus some light salt and pepper spare ribs notes. Good enough but not amazing.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.75 l bottle, 2007 vintage. Hazy yellow color with no head. Dry and acidic aroma with grapefruit, lemon and pineapple. Dry fairly sour and tart flavor with notes of citrus fruits. Sharp sour finish with acetic acid. Very low real ale like carbonation. Almost like a lambic, haven’t tasted this kind of cider before!

tasted in barcelon. I love this stuff, so different than ciders Ive had, though I havent had many. tart light bodied lemony sour goodness!!!! When my girlfriend gave me the glass and I smelled it I thought it was some wonderful sour ale and thought where the hell did this come from. I drank quite a bit of this over the week I stayed in barcelona and loved it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Extremely bitter, which is good, yet highly laxative cider. Drunk from a tap at a serve yourself type location. Got it’s job done, we were all farting and drunk after about 45 minutes.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(on tap)Very gentle and easy-tart sidra. Big aroma of crapapples and some barn, yet not much. Soft mouth, mediotart finish, was very odd with the basque tapas.

Comments: An archetypal sidra del pais vasco and one of the most available, that you can find even in Asturias which is funny as the building is really not that grand. A sure value anyway.
