COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Naturally fermented cider made only from local Asturian apples, selected by AACOMASI, the Asturian Association of Cider Apple Growers. The production process is checked and certified by ECA, the Certification and Quality Guarantee Organization, who ensure that the whole process has been followed through and is implemented according to the guidelines leading to the award of the ‘Naturally Fermented Quality Cider’ stamp of approval.

Colour: Lemony-yellow on green. Bubbly on pouring. Pours well. Fruity, unripened apple bouquet. Nuances of dried roses with a hint of freshly churned butter, with a pleasant, tart taste. After tastes of citrus fruit, grapefruit and lemon linger on the palate.

Ernest (6200) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle. No head (still, poured as vigorously as I could without getting cider all over the room, so as not to offend Spanish purists). Body is medium yellow. Aroma is notes of cheese, apples, lemon juice, and mold. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic. Light to medium body, watery texture, flat carbonation, moderately astringent, lightly alcoholic. Well, it’s got nothing on the best Normandy ciders, but at least it doesn’t just smell like apple juice. I’m personally not fond of the strong cheesy smell, but I could see some folks enjoying that. Nice balance, it’s assertively tart. Overall just ok.

3fourths (7979) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2014 Bottle. Green apple nose is mostly clean, slightly malic. Puckering lactic acid dominates, acids are bright and salivating, juicy in the mouth but the sugar no match for such sharp acidity. I had Trabanco Sidra Natural twice in Spain, once at their restaurant in Gijon, poured by the fancy-pants cider man... I thought their version was average, clean and simple and without flaws, nothing standing out. This bottle, different or not, is more raw than I remember their sidra, the acetobacter vinegar and pickle note begins to creep on me... but I’ve grown more sensitive to acidity in recent years so it could be me.

Fin (7379) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle at Casa de Sagues, Arenas de Cabrales, Pico’s de Europe, Spain, Sunday 15th June 2014 Pours hazy lemony colour when poured from a great height you’ll get some bubbling and when the barman opened the bottle there was a little fizzy noise. Refreshing cider or should I say Sidra, Really nice appley nose, not particularly juicy and not sweet, but v.good A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

750ml corked and uncapped bottle. There is litereally a cloud of semen in the green glass. Pours a murked golden with strands of siad semen. SMell and taste are heavily geared toward farmhousey funky medicinal band aidy brett. Slight earth and tannic character.

Clear medium gold. At least clear until I dumped some sediment in on the last pour. Aroma is tart apple peels, rather bold and pleasant. Flavor is lighter, but more apple peel going on with some good fresh apple flavors. Pleasant and enjoyable.

yngwie (13529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle. An unclear pale golden cider, flat. Sour apples and acidity, apple cores and a generic fruityness. Lightly vinegarish and quite fruity on the palate, dry and medium bodied. Apples, pale malts and vinegar notes in the finish. Lasting end. A quite pleasant cider, although a tad too vinegarish. 130216
