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.

Crystal clear with a light lemony hue, almost colorless. Aroma is light and apple-y, with a touch of champagne yeast and apple skin. Flavor is crisp and cidery, with some sweet apple flavors and light tartness, with a bubbly dry finish. It’s fine. Colors within the lines and all. Not bad, just "another cider"

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 16.06.2013, tap @ Alewife Queens:
Tiny fizzy shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral with hints of apples, hay and yeast. Taste is slightly fruity, fresh green apples, yeast, hay. Fair enough.

translucent straw color with white bubbles around the edge. very effervescent.

aroma: raw tart apple, champagne, and pizza dough. medium-light body with high carbonation.

taste: fresh apple, champagne. nice balance of sweetness, tartness, tannins, and musty champagne depth.

i would like a bit more whole apple character.

Pours a pale yellow. Lots of apples on the nose. No head to speak of. Starts out sweet and ends dry. Not bad.

Draft at Poof. Looks like water although jbruner said there was bubbles to it. Faint apple smell as well as the flavor. Crisp not too sweet. Ohhhh another crappy cider.

Pours a bubbly clear yellow on tap, no real head or lacing. Aroma is booze and apples, taste follows, not crazy sweet. Decent.
