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.

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.

Im not sure why this cider gets a bad wrap, it has a very distinct taste and is a really unique cider. Its 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 Ive seen in a cider. Overall, its one of the best, if not the best, cider Ive ever had.

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: Im 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

The very cleverly named Original Sin Hard Cider is extremely light in color. Its closer to a white wine than it is a beer. Smells a bit like a white wine, too, but it is full of apple. After drinking it, this really does feel to me more like an apple wine than most hard ciders. The champagne yeast probably has a lot to do with that. While most ciders are cloyingly sweet or puckeringly tart, this isnt. Its crisp and refreshing with a good apple taste. There is enough sour tartness in the finish that you wont be disappointed. This is probably the easiest drinking hard cider I have had. Try this for something different.

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

I really enjoyed this hard cider and im surprised that it has not received a higher score? Fresh apple taste and not as carbonated as Docs, I prefer this cider
