Pale yellow straw color. Green, herbal aromas of hop pellets, dried citrus, mossy riverbed, and elderflower with a supple, tart, effervescent, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, compelling, buoyant green apple skin, grapefruit zest and pulp, oregano, and grass finish. A snappy hopped cider.

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.
