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.

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.

DrnkMcDermott (2835) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2013
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.

Brilliant almost clear color. Fermented apple and slight oak int he smell, the flavor is crisp and refreshing. A good summer cider.

Beerman6686 (4671) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2012
This poured a somewhat sparkling yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of light rotting apples, mainly freshly squeezed apples, and light wood notes. Flavor was a great balance in being not overly sweet, having great apple flavor and even a little raw rotteness to it as well. Pretty good cider.

Blairgus (2727) - California, USA - NOV 18, 2012
17 nov 2012, tap. Very pale yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is faintly sweet, primarily tart apple cider. Thin body, dry and a bit fizzy. Really, really dry and really, really tart cider. Maybe faintly oaky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2012

Bottle shared @ Top Hops.
Pale, clear, ginger ale body. Somewhat active.
Perfumey pear & acidy apple peel on the nose. White wine.
Taste is bittersweet. Leafy/herbal. Soda fizz that dies pretty quickly. Touch of dessert apple sweetness. Somewhat yeasty. Small bit of tartness. Mellow acidity. Noticeable sulfites. Calcium/minerally dryness.
A bit too herbal for me. I don’t really get that old wood or hard water taste I associate with English ciders either. Pretty decent though. As long as the price tag is kept in check I will seek these ciders out.
