Aroma of tart apples with some barnyard and earth. The taste is tart, dry apples with pepper and an earthy finish. Medium bodied, lingering tartness, low carbonation, refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL from P St Whole Foods in DC. Pours low carbonation, fizzing out white soda foam. Beautifully bright glowing straw pour with green highlights. Nose is pretty funky off the bat: some crazy moldy peach, ripened pithy papaya, fresh and tropical like a passionfruit Berliner Weisse. Taste is holy monkey sour, bracing citric tang with fresh strawberry acid, pomelo pulp, strawberry limeade. Quenching, refreshing. Quick, lactic lemonade finish. Extremely light bodied. Really awesome. My first Basque sidra I think and I will now be on a quest for more!
