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.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - APR 17, 2005
Draft: Poured about as light a pale yellow as you can get without calling it water. Thin white head, almost nonexistent. Very very light apple aroma. Flavor is light apple and not very sweet. Refreshing. Easy to drink but not a lot there except 6% alcohol.

Hopistotle420 (1177) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Bottle: Pours a near clear yellow, with a bubbly white head. Slight lace. Floral, apple nose. Definately smooth, clean cut, a bit thin and lacking complexity. The label reads "serve cold" as many products do. Im not feelin it here, but if one was to slug a few of these they might. Try the french ciders and you will realize what its all about.

frylock (1144) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2004
Bottle: Pale gold color with no head. Semi sweet apple aroma with some mineral notes. Light sweetness, apple skins, dryer finish. Nice body for a cider. Not mind blowing, but drinkable.

(tap) very light in color, with and apple/seltzer aroma, not my favorite hard cider, but i suppose you could put them back fairly easily

This really is very clear. Almost non-existent color. Very dry also. Had some with beaconstreet. I thought this was good but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I did the woodchuck I tried last night. But that is probably just personal preference not reflection on this cider. Worth a try

Beautiful cider from the Green Mountains, or so I thought from the label. This is class--has the major bubbles, pale pale color, and intense dryness as most English ciders do. But has a good medium-strength infusion of apple taste to keep it known you’re drinking apple cider. Just wonderful. I’m sure though, as with other dry ciders, it’ll kill you/really mess you up after a few rounds. But an enjoyable drink, without destroying your palate.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2004
So pale is it almost white-clear. Very light tartness (grannies?) balanced against a medium effervescence. Very good--doesn’t overdo the apple sweetness......but still doesn’t taste quite right. I can only assume it is pasteurized...the search goes on.... thanks Fry!

This is the most unique looking cifer I have ever seen. Like pouring a flute of champagne, this pours clear and carbonated and fizzy. This literally looks like sparkling water. Great tangy apple nose that is lightly tart. Dry and very refreshing and satisfying. A real thirst quencher with hints of peach and pear as well as granny smith apples.

Thanks to Wunderbier for buying a 6er up in Brooklyn and giving me a bottle to bring back home!

Rating #530
Did I just pour a glass of 7up? This cider is almost crystal clear… a slight golden hue though. The aroma is brute… champagne like. The flavor is crushed apples and a note of white vinegar… it’s pretty damn drinkable. I think I’m drinking champagne… not so cider like????? A tart entrance but a rather sweet dry finish.

wunderbier (1435) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2004
12 oz bottle, snifter. Red and green apples, whtie wine, a little bit of allspice in the aroma. A faint hint of doughy yeast is a pleasant suprise. Small, fizzy white head on a sparkling yellow-pearl body. Heavily sweet, moderately acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly acidic finish of short duration. Medium-light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. The bottom line is: I don’t really know how this stacks up against other ciders, but I found it to be quite refreshing, if not a bit simple.
