COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
RedStreak is a proper English style draft cider. With its hazy lemon hue, scent of ripe apples and just a touch of oak, RedStreak has a crisp, tart finish that pairs perfectly with your favorite mature cheddar. First discovered in Herefordshire in the 1630s, the Redstreak bittersharp apple produced a cider so delicious it was deemed to be ‘fit for kings.’ Whether paired or on its own, RedStreak Cider is your next drink.

Tap sample. Poured hazy pale color with a minimal white head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Moderate aroma of tart apple. Light to medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tart apple flavor with a medium to heavy tart finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met.

Hello, you. I could drink on this sweet tartness quite a bit more than what I got from a tasting flight pour at Good Beer. Slightly hazy bright pale straw. Nose of granny smith apples, lemons, and a touch of wood. Taste add some funk and rubber in a great way. Color me intrigued.

On draught at 2013 Cider Summit PDX. Very pale yellow, full of bubbles. Tart apple aroma, with almost a farmhouse yeast profile. Super dry, with an almost sweet champagne flavor. Finishes crisp and refreshing.

Draft at State&Lake at the Wit Hotel, downtown. I finally got to bite into a Virtue Cider. And on a hotel bar tap, too. Color is lighter than the lightest beer out there, with a short, fizzy head that’s gone as soon as you blink. Smell is kind of pale, with just a slight tang of apple juice. I found the taste to be rather light, with tart apple in the back of my throat, just a touch of sweetness. It resists your attempts to swig it down, inviting introspection instead. Seems very fully attenuated, although the abv is no more than most beers.

On tap at Schuba’s Chicago. Pours slightly cloudy slightly irridescent green. Flavor is bright and tart with just a touch of sweetness and a light alcohol note. One of the best American ciders I’ve had and in fact beats many at their own game as it has a good balance of tartness and fizziness.
