UPDATED: JUN 29, 2017 Bottle from a supermarket in Benasque. Poured from a height, but not as crazy high as the experts do. Hazy golden color with white head that goes down quickly. Aroma is earthy, barnyard, a touch manure, mealy. Taste is earthy, dusty, mealy apples, mineralic. Tannic and mealy finish. Low carbonation, but something present. Too mealy for me, but still okay and interesting. EDIT: The second 2-finger thick pour is much less mealy and tastier. 3.3
