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.

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.

Draft at goose clybourn, pours very clear with a very pale straw color and no head. Aroma is bursting with fresh apples, touch oaky vanilla, vinho verdi like. Flavors is huge with fresh apples, nice apple crisp zingy tart character, oaky white wine character, earthy finish, long spritzy clean champagne esque finish. A lot like apple vinho verdi. Holy crap this is good.

tap at Dash In - Thsi cider smells of green apples. It’s light and mildly sweet, a definite tart character, and a dry finish. It’s well done and for me was more of a slow drinker than the typical draft cider.

Draft at GI clybourn. Pours an attractive pale gold with a nice mousse on top that fades reasonably quickly. Good flow of bubble. Nose starts with some light sulfur and a distinct fruity quality. Musty cellar and tartness in the nose, then sweetness and an almost savory note. The sulfur fades fast leaving a great floral apple blossom note. Really great. Medium prickly carbonation, light body. A bit more body would be fantastic. Good balance of sweetness and acidity. Great floral quality on taste witha persistent ripe apple character. Medium tartness and great fruit flavor. Pretty fantastic cider here.

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.

CanIHave4Beers (3327) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 29, 2013
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 (3310) - 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.

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.
