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.

heavy (2133) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 16, 2012
29/11 0.70 l bottle @Sidreria Asturias, Oviedo. It poured hazy yellow body with medium sized head. Quite weak, tart apple aroma. Flavor was sour, but not as usual, somewhat sweet fruity towards the end. Clean, without notes of yeast or cork, medium bodied with long, tart apple finish. I’d prefer more straightforward sourness, although people who are not used to or don’t like very sour things might find this a good gate to Spanish natural cider style. A pleasant example anyhow.

obguthr (3782) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Cobweb, musty basement, apple, and pear aroma. Earthy soil notes as well. Clear yellow, no visible carbonation. Tart, abundant funk and mustiness. Persimmon and apple. Carbonation is soft. Not in the least medicinal, nor does it seem infected. Finishes with a meaty smokiness, reminiscent of bacon. Lovely transitions and wild character. One of the best ciders I’ve had the pleasure of drinking.

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.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Sampled @ Tinto Fino during NYC Cider Week. Balloon wine glass. Stirred pour. Golden, hazed body. Smells of tangy, over-ripe fruit. Tastes slightly sweet & bittergreen. Itchy tang. Earthy yeast. Oniony? Moderate vinegar. Solid tartness. Tasty. :)
