New York Dry Cider
Original Sin Cider, New York, NY
Made to commemorate Original Sin’s 25th anniversary and appearing on shelves just before Independence Day, this modern cider pours a pale straw color from its red, white, and blue can. Fermented with Champagne yeast, it offers some nuanced depth in the aroma, bringing to mind tart apple skin, tangy starfruit, green banana, white grapes, and just a touch of tannins. Lithe, lively, and light on the palate with a crisp, approachable acidity, New York Dry Cider manages to maintain a juicy character without straying into overly sweet territory. Semi-dry in the finish with a fresh, fruity linger, this is a beverage worthy of celebration.
Price: $10.99/4-pack | 6.5% ABV
