COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

I’m not sure why this cider gets a bad wrap, it has a very distinct taste and is a really unique cider. It’s 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 I’ve seen in a cider. Overall, it’s one of the best, if not the best, cider I’ve ever had.

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.

Alphadelic (1922) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Crisp and clean looks. On the nose too, a little tart, a little dry. In the mouth there is a burst of sweetness that is quickly evened out with tangy tart fruit both of which slowly fade away twirling together quite pleasantly.

Draft, Nano Brew Cleveland on 26 Nov, 2014. Aroma is apple sweetness, sugars. Light in body with high carbonation and a dry, clean finish. Tart apples, weak white grape and pears. Overall well-made but standard.
