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.

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

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.

Pale yellow with fizzy head. Tart apples, fresh, light wood notes, sweet sugars. Very carbonated. Lightly dry but refreshing. Nice from top to bottom.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Very pale straw color and strong beading with a white fizzy head. Strong tart apple nose. Champagne-esque carbonation...spritzy, sparkling, refreshing. Fresh tart apple flavor, with some hints of fresh pears. Pretty dry finish...not cloying at all, and very refreshing, A very encouraging first product from a welcome "new" local maker.

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
On tap at the Hill Farmstead Harvest Festival VIP event, Vermont. Pours clear, very pale yellow. Lovely cider from start to finish. Moderately dry with fresh apples, light sugar, mild tartness. Moderate funk in there, light acidity. Stupidly clean and fresh. One of the best American ciders I’ve had.

This is one of the best ciders Ive ever had. Generally not a huge cider guy but the complexity of the flavor is fantastic. The apples are prominant and juicy with notes of citrus, light funk, oak, and a dry finish that makes you really want to keep drinking it. Great cider.

On tap at the VIP session at the 2012 Hill Farmstead Harvest Festival. Pours an almost clear straw hued gold with a thin white head. Bright sweet apple, light spicy tones and a hint of wood. Dry and crisp, light apple. Clean and crisp, smooth. A touch empty through the middle. Light acid, crisp and dry.

Was a guest brew at Harvest. Consumed while walking. Poured a pale color with no visible head. Smells and tastes of tarted apples, white wine dregs, eucalyptus and yeast. Nice and sessionable.

Cider! Went to burger bar and had this on tap, just cause! Pours a clear gold with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a faint fruit amd wheat. Thin mouthfeel with a sour fruit and crisp finish. Easy to drink but nothing to wow me.
