Original Sin was born out of the NYC experience. The founders, all NYCíers, 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.

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.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - FEB 23, 2007
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.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - FEB 22, 2007
12 oz Bottle-poured a sparkling clear color like a glass of white wine w/just a bit of a bubbly head. Sweet grassy aroma. Light, sweet, green apple/white grape flavor w/some definite fizz-reminded me of a White Wine or Champagne. Not terribly complex; light, easy to drink. Somewhat tart finish. Interesting, my first Cider. Iíd try others based on this one.

Draft at Fox&Hound, Mason, OH. Pale color with a minimal fizzy white head that diminishs quickly. Light sweet apple aroma. Light body with a watery texture. Medium sweet flavor with a short sweet finish. Not my style of brew.

starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Very light yellow colour, white head. Smells like rotten apples. Just... not good. Bland, tart in all the wrong places, nasty warm. The temperature might make a big difference on this one, and my hormones might too.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2006
A very pale yellow body, almost so much so that itís more an off-white than yellow. Sweet and tart apple aroma. Very tart taste, almost like champaign. Sharp ending, nice.

If you want a cider this is a good choice. Pours clear with a slight green tint and you can smell the apples from the beginning. Crisp and not sweet on the palate finishing with a tartness that is refreshing.
