Old gold color. Spicy aromas and flavors of egg nog with lots of nutmeg, apple-lemon tart, toasted spices, and apple yogurt with a satiny, tangy, effervescent, fruity light-to-medium body and an interesting, medium-long finish that presents notes of green-apple-kiwi relish, pumpkin pie filling, and lime curd finish. A bright, spicy pie-like 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.
