Sample at The Green Lady. Clear pale golden color with an effervescent white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of apples, vine fruit and spice. Light to medium body with flavors of apple cider, white grape and spice. The finish is dry with an apple aftertaste. Decent overall.

Draft at Railroad. Pours clear and very pale gold with minimal head. Nose was apples, white wine grapes. Tasted like a slightly tart cider, with a smooth finish. NikkTwist (3368) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Draft at Moriartys. Taster. Clear pale gold pour with no particular head. Sourish apple cider flavors. Enough blonde malts for balance but still feels awkward. A good swigging pale sour. Nothing particularly wrong with it but feels like nonsense. rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2016
tap. pale straw with small head. tart green apple. light sweetness. well balanced with plenty of apple flavor. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 1, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of tart apple, light cider, and white wine. It’s a transparent dull gold with a minimal white head that quickly fades to a very fine ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of cider. The finish quickly turns to tart apple skins with some white wine. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Flight pour on tap at. Goose Clybourn (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice transparent champagne hue. White wine bubbles, frothy white head atop dies to a small ring, laces small. Aromas are a bit rustic, fleshy red apple, gentle straw and a bit of fresh earthiness. A kiss of yeast, champagne and earth. Not sweet but not Brut, just a touch of earthiness. Initial is a bit bubbly and effervescent. Gentle tartness, green apple and subtle white grape mix with some fleshy apple as we press on. Fresh apple press, red apple and juiciness as we move on. More dry and brut, touches of earth and gentle spiciness, effevescence and Brut like qqualities into rhe backend. A bit dry, yeasty as we finish. Light, airy with some disinct champagne like life. A gentle sweetness in the middle. Not as tart or dry as Redstreak with a firmer Brut like yeast presence. Nice. crossovert (14006) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Draft. A cider that was described to me iirc by Ryan of virtue as a riff on Red Streak, a bit back-sweetened if you will. This is a nice, drinkable cider, some earthiness to it, not really overly sweet at all.
