Original Sin cider has been around for a while now. Never gave much thought to cider prior to OS. Had only partaken in such low quality ciders as Woodchuck, Strongbow, etc. But OS opened my mind to the potential of ciders and how enjoyable they really can be. To be truthful, itís not exceptional, but for the price itís damn good. . Much better (and better for you) than Inbev (Johnny Appleseed) or MillerCoors (Smith & Forge) offerings. Itís at the same price point in my area as Angry Orchard, yet much drier and more refined. Itís not an ultra-premium hand crafted cider like some local offerings here in Richmond, VA as in Blue Bee, Albemarle Cider Works, or Potters, but itís not priced to be.
Expect an effervescent, clean tasting cider, that leans toward off-dry but in comparison to similarly priced 6-pack ciders out there it would have to be considered a dry. Good, not great, but extremely drinkable. Cheers!

Bottle from Bethesda Food & Beverage. Nose of apples but also cranberries and cherries. Taste is also apples with the other berries a more distant. Medium in the body. Sweet with cherry flavours throughout. Decent.

Light yellow, low head. Moderate carbonation, slightly tingling, on the dry side, a bit tart. Decent flavors, not especially distinctive however.

Rated based on notes taken 14 July 2012 -- This is an okay cider. Maybe a little thin for my preference but not bad.

Iím not sure why this cider gets a bad wrap, it has a very distinct taste and is a really unique cider. Itís brewed with champagne yeast, so it is much more dry compared to a standard cider and even tastes similar to champagne. It also only has 7 grams of sugar, probably the lowest Iíve seen in a cider. Overall, itís one of the best, if not the best, cider Iíve ever had.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
