In short: A grapefruity bitter Sidra. Nice.pumpmaster (1430) - Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2014
How: Served from a bottle in one of the countless pintxo bar not listed on ratebeer in San Sebastian Spain.
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde 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.
In long: As above but more towards the white grapefruits flavors which also lend a stronger bitterness sensation than the average Sidra. Strong lacto presence. Stands out a bit from the crowd from a flavors point of view, but from a quality point of view it was rather average. An apple Sidra a day keeps the doctor away if you throw the empty bottle hard enough.
Glass of cider at Restaurant Alberto in San Sebastian, Spain for 1.00euro. Good. Theis (15151) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2012

Bottle at Euskal Etxea, Barcelona
Cloudy blond color. Aroma of citrus fruits, with some vinegar. The flavor is sour, with citrus fruits, a bit astringent. Quite aggressive, but less complex than the average Asturian ciders (this one is Basque).
