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.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2005 Thanks to Wunderbier for this one!! This is my first cider, so maybe I’m way off the mark here, but... This actually made a small white head that left a nice lace on the glass. The body just had the least bit of pale yellow color to it; Champagne-like. The aroma was clean, and fresh, not artificial, apple with a hint of honey. The palate was lively effervescent, sweet, with a wonderfully light tangyness. With 6% alcohol, this could be sneaky stuff. Very nice, I’ll try and check out some cider ratings and sample a few more of these. Re-rate After sampling some very fine ciders in Quebec, I have dropped this down from a previous score of 4.1.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2004 Suprised there is so few ratings. Very light, apple juice appearance, no head. Good apples aroma. Average cider flavor, nothing to crazy. I guess others should try it.

muzzlehatch (4977) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2004
12 oz bottle. Very light and weak-looking, tiny fizziness but becomes quickly still. Faint sweet apple nose, reasonably fresh and "real"; very smooth, bland, a bit watery but fresh...there's quality there, if only the makers knew how to get it into the bottle.

4.5

A very good cider worth chasing down if ever you find yourself in NYC. A crisp clean taste that has subtle afterbite of light apples. Lightly golden in color and with a great name.
