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.

Original Sin cider has been around for a while now. Never gave much thought to cider prior to OS. Had only partaken in such low quality ciders as Woodchuck, Strongbow, etc. But OS opened my mind to the potential of ciders and how enjoyable they really can be. To be truthful, it’s not exceptional, but for the price it’s damn good. . Much better (and better for you) than Inbev (Johnny Appleseed) or MillerCoors (Smith & Forge) offerings. It’s at the same price point in my area as Angry Orchard, yet much drier and more refined. It’s not an ultra-premium hand crafted cider like some local offerings here in Richmond, VA as in Blue Bee, Albemarle Cider Works, or Potters, but it’s not priced to be. Expect an effervescent, clean tasting cider, that leans toward off-dry but in comparison to similarly priced 6-pack ciders out there it would have to be considered a dry. Good, not great, but extremely drinkable. Cheers!

Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2017
0.33l bottle @ Distilled NYC. This is a pale blurry looking one. Lots and lots of bug bubbles climbing up the glass. No real head. Smells nice. Apply, mild dusty with some pear hints. A mild apply sweetness in the taste but its not too sweet. Pears and soft cellar dust. Some acidity also giving it a mild freshness. Works decent in the hot NYC sun. 19.06.2015

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a clear golden with a fizzy, white head. The aroma is apples. The taste is tart apples and lemon. It’s dry, bubbly, and refreshing. It’s not overly sweet. It’s a decent cider. Nothing really stands out. There’s nothing wrong with it though.

Closest thing to Bulmer’s Strongbow (circa 1970’s Toronto) that I have found so far.

Light yellow, low head. Moderate carbonation, slightly tingling, on the dry side, a bit tart. Decent flavors, not especially distinctive however.

Rated based on notes taken 14 July 2012 -- This is an okay cider. Maybe a little thin for my preference but not bad.

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.
