Many thanks top fombe89 for this 70cl bottle. Sourish refreshing beginning. Lots of apples, fresh fruit with a moderate acidity. Not too sour, still lots of fruit there. Round and refreshing with a nice Sidra-typical sulphur sourness, that is not too intense. Fresh fruity sour apples, refreshing stuff. Taboada (1353) - Compostela (Galiza), - FEB 14, 2017
750 mml bottle tasted on the 03/02/2017. Cloudy yellow colour. Aroma of apples and tart. Medium carbonation. Taste is fruity but with a little watery finish. Next one please! sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2016
Bouteille 75cl au Festival Compostela, Bruxelles ’16.
Couleur paille, présentant un léger voile, col fin blanc retombant rapidement.
Arôme de pomme, rétro un peu acerbe sans avoir le fruité frais verger que l’on retrouve parfois.
Palais est assez sec, fruité, pomme verte, avec une petite sécheresse perdurant en fin de bouche. Effervescence reste modérée avec un léger mordant acidulé de la pomme.
Ok, mais pas spécialement le meilleur exemple à vernir de cette région. Gurthnar (5879) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle from first gas pump in Spain. Quite good, rather low intensity, but nicely balanced and easily drinkable. Pyobon (1404) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2015

In short: A Sidra lacking character where everything seemed muffled. Boring.mike_77 (6673) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2014
How: Bottle when dining in some rustic restaurant in the Picos De Europa Spain.
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: As above but with everything toned down. Muted funk, fruitiness lacking a freshness quality, timid acidity, even the carbonation was lifeless (even by Sidra standard). I drank this bottle in a countryside rustic restaurant lost in the Picos De Europa, so maybe the bottle was old, or maybe this sidra is just lame. I’m not the type of person who can hate a restaurant waiter forever just because he sold me a lame bottle of Sidra, but I will however hate him for the rest of my life.
This cider is not unpleasant but lacks fruity intensity and a touch of acidity. Quite plain. Fin (10542) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2014
