COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Original Sin was born out of the NYC experience. The founders, all NYCers, 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.

12oz bottle. Golden pour. The aroma is apples, apple juice, faint yeastiness. Okay flavor, mildly sweet, apples and apple juice, hints at yeast and a touch of tartness. Not bad.

rosenbergh (11374) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2014
12 oz bottle. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Almost colourless liquid with some faint yellowish hints. Sugary sweetness, sulphites and fruit essence in the aroma. The flavour is very dry with apple, apple wine, alcohol and sulphite notes. Not the worst dry apple cider but not a pleasure either.

Bottle 355ml. Pours very clear yellow/greenish. No lacing. Aroma is of apples, wine, yeast? Taste is of apples, sugar. The alcohol is well hidden. Palate: Good balance. Low carbonation. Overall: Pretty drinkable. Nice apples, good balance. This is a pretty fair cider.

On tap @ Olde Hickory. Pours a clear super fucken light appearance with little head. Sweet tart apple juice aroma. Really basic. Moderately tart. Not overly sweet. Just tastes like apple juice.

minutemat (5137) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2014
350ml bottle from Hand Drawn Monkey, Huddersfield but first tasted in the Big Apple, so to speak. Seem to remember it tasting better over there. Pours clear to light yellow, taste is light with green apples, desert apples and a syrupy sweetness although not as full on as the likes of Bulmers. Its an accessible, sweet blend but my tastebuds want something a bit rougher than this.

tom10101 (5906) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle (12 oz). Shared by Minderbinder, thanks! Clear pale yellow/almost translucent with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of apples, light pear, light sweetness and hints of tartness. Taste is of apples with just a nice touch of sweetness, light pear and light acidic notes. Alcohol is completely hidden. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Extremely drinkable and refreshing/quenching and nicely dry. Incredibly underrated. I would take it as an everyday cider anytime. Nice surprise!

One of my favorite hard ciders. Dry, not too sweet, just strong enough to enjoy.
