3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle tasted at Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Definitely cooler label/design than the original Original Sin. Nose is Granny Smith apples, a bit sweet and one-note. The taste was sweeter and less dry than the original. Weird that this was made with champagne yeast. The original tasted more like it. Not worth it; simple, but drinkable.

Pours a champagne-like body; Bubbly. Delicate fruity aroma, apple, sweet but not sugary, a hint of barnyard. Flavor pretty much matches. Body is light but not thin. Not much effervescence. A little tart, quite dry, a little dusty.

12/30/12. Cool looking 750mL bottle from Grassroots Natural Market. Super clear golden, almost white-wine, pour with a fizzy off-white head that’s gone fast. Musty tart apple aroma and flavor that really hints at various off-dry white wines. Not bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a lackluster chardonnay yellow with a weak nose of water apple and pear. Slight cheap white wine in there too. Flavor is watery apple with melon notes and watery white wine. There’s a weird gasoline essence in the finish. Lifeless on the tongue. Meh.
