Golden yellow color. Roasted aromas and flavors of spiced baked apples, honeycomb, and roasted peppers with a supple, bright, petillant, bittersweet medium body and an interesting, breezy finish displaying elements of kiwi, mango and jicama with cayenne and spicy ajvar finish. A distinctive, very savory cider that will be best with ethnic foods.

Specialty ciders include all ciders that do not fit neatly into other categories. These ciders may be barrel-aged, dry-hopped, spiced, made with single or heirloom apple varietals, fermented with an exotic or wild yeast strain, or any combination of these techniques. Ciders in this category have a diverse set of flavors, aromas and alcohol content. Most specialty ciders have seasonal or limited availability, but are becoming more readily available year-round as the category grows in popularity.
