Brilliant golden yellow color. Nutty, toasty aromas and flavors of cinnamon, vanilla roasted nuts, spumoni, and nougat with a velvety, vibrant, finely carbonated, off-dry medium body and a charming, medium-length finish that exhibits suggestions of cedar and pine finish. A great cider for the holidays.

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.
