Original Sin was born out of the NYC experience. The founders, all NYC’ers, came to see the need for a superior cider, a cider that was clean and complex with a noticeable bite. The quest to create the perfect recipe encompassed both day and night. Day was spent in upstate in a winery, tasting, testing and mixing. Nights were spent in NYC bars, getting feedback from bar owners and patrons. The result, Original Sin Hard Cider was released to immediate acclaim from sources as diverse as the The New York Times, Paper Magazine, and Market Watch.

Recently, at a particularly poor beer tasting offered by a local store, I scanned their cooler for some awful beer that they had on hand, just to up the ante. This was one of them. Clear with just the palest hint of yellow. A few air bubbles for a head. A very faint nose of apple. Very faint. Watery in the mouth. Astringent flavor of nothing particular. Not worth getting kicked out of Eden for.

Pale Floral Yellow Color. Granny Smith Apple Aroma Balanced Apple Sweetness on the Tongue...Nice Smooth Cider. Not Nearly as Sickly Sweet as Some Hard Ciders Often Are.

12oz bottle. This is sweet apple cider with a dry finish. It is refreshing, light, and simple. It went perfectly with some bbq and a hot summer night.

There’s hardly any color to the highly carbonated body, just a drop or two of yellow dye. The aroma is faint, some mildly tart apples along with their skins. The flavor perks up a bit, more tart and stronger than the aroma. The finish is dry and lightly sour. Okay for warmer weather.

Pours almost like water with a small white head. The aroma is faint but has some green apple ~ that’s it. Medium / thin body with a nice slick feel and semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with semi-sweet green and red apples with some sourness. The finish is pretty much the same. This is a decent cider, but not really any complexity & the ingredient of champagne yeast is completely hidden to me.

Pour is a cloudy chalk color with a fizzy head. Aroma is nothing special as artificial apple is the only thing you detect. Flavor is much of the same. Very artificial and watery. This is closer to a zima than a good cider.

Greenish clear fizzy liquid with a quick fading white head. Aroma is apple, but not dramatically so, and not supersweet either. Flavor is the same, and rather tart. Not bad, but not good. $1.30/12 oz

thedm (4972) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 1, 2007
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent typically carbonated yellow colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was red apple. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of red apple. Not one that I would likely buy again.

Bottle. Very small white head that mostly diminished, virtually no lacing, transparent, minimal carbonation, and an off-white hue. Nose was sweet, tart and apples. Ditto for the flavor along with some dryness. Fairly smooth mouthfeel and dry. Light body. So-so, but not all that great either.
