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.

Tulip pour at village tap... Crystal clear transparent gold pour, somewhat lively with some bubble action going on. Non-existent head... Aroma of semi-tart red apple meat and skin. Clean, dry, and crisp... Flavors are more of the same semi-tart refreshing red apple, lightly sweet. Not that oaky. To sound like a broken record, crisp clean refreshing and really drinkable. Light on the palate. Dry finish.

On tap at Revolution. Pours a crystal clear, pale yellow colored body with no head. Aroma is crisp and lightly tart apples with a touch of sweetness. A hint of oak and champagne. Flavor is similar. Clean and crisp apples with a light sweetness and tartness. A touch of oak again before this finishes dry and lightly tart with a hint of sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a clean, crisp, light body and a champagne-ish carbonation. Overall, a really solid cider. Very fresh apples with a light tartness and touch of sweetness. Extremely easy to drink with a pleasant dryness. Pretty impressed.

Pours a pale yellow with a head that does the quick rise and fall thing, it’s got a few tiny bubbles rising.

The cider is lightly fruity smelling but has a nice earthy clay and limestone character to it. It’s a touch funky & very inviting.

The flavor is very tart, a touch sour and dry throughout. The cider has a great earthy and minerally character with some tart apple and apple rind flavor.

Very enjoyable.

Bamsen78 (2993) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2013
Draught @ The Ginger Man, NYC. Pours slightly hazy pale yellow with small white head. Clear aroma of apples, sugar and cinnamon. Sweetish flavour of cinnamon and ripe apples. Sweet aftertaste. OK but nothing revolutionary.

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.

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

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.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 Sampler @ the GI Clyborn location. The color is pale straw. Aroma is drying, slightly acidic, and fruity apples. Well balanced not sweet and very well done for an English style. Flavor is fruit forward than good dryness and mineral apple without the sweet. I really enjoyed this cider.
