3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
