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.

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

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.

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.

Closest thing I've found to some of the excellent craft ciders I had in Ireland. Devoid of the overly sugary flavor that other mainstream US ciders suffer from.

Aroma: Heavy scent of apples clearly obvious and apparent. Appearance: No head, but a pale, pale gold. Almost clear. Taste: Medium sweet with hints of sourness. Tart, very tart. Palate: Light body, thin texture, minimal carbonation but a decent finish. Overall: I’m not blown away, but I could see stocking a few of these in my fridge for a night of pork chops or something similar.

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.

Clear with only a faint yellow. Nose has a very faint acidity of Granny Smith and heirloom dry apples. Taste is good. Sharp sweetness that fades to a very hearty finish. I like this one
