In short: A superior Sidra, bright, funky, complex.3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 29, 2011
How: Served from a bottle at one of the countless pintxo bar in San Sebastian Spain that are not listed on ratebeer. (this one was called Ttvn-Ttvn Taberna)
The look: Cloudy yellow body with no head to speak of.
To me a typical Sidra is: Funky aroma of medium intensity with many light color fruits in the back (not just apples). Body is medium in size, a texture that is both juicy and doughy and with minimal carbonation. Taste is a lot less apple-forward than a regular cider with apples but also various light color tropical/citrus/exotic fruits. Yeast presence accompanied by a bready sensation. Typical Sidras have a mild sourness and ends with a mild-medium acidic bite. Thirst quenching and also a bit nourishing.
This one: Stronger and brighter farmhouse character. Fruitinees is much more like peaches and bananas than apples. Overall greater complexity. One of my favorite Sidra. If the planet ever run out of beer I think I’ll switch to Sidra, and if the planet run out of alcohol I think I’ll try this sex thing I’ve been hearing about.

Thanks to whoever shared this at bullzeye’s Super Bowl tasting. Hazy yellow color. The aroma is apples with some light funk. The flavor is a mix of tart apples and funky apples. Interesting cider. blutt59 (6579) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2011

Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours hazy orange with a few chunks - I like chunks. Nice sour apple skin aroma. Fairly sour and definitely astringent. It is not sweet. It’s right in there with a good saison or farmhouse ale. Aftertaste is pretty much apple skin with a little cooked apple. Very good cider.
