Hazy amber color. Roasted aromas and flavors of ground peanut candy and vanilla nougat with a lightly tannic, crisp, effervescent, fruity sweet medium body and an interesting, medium-length finish that shows elements of Irish cream, eucalyptus, and baked apple pie with cheddar cheese finish. A creamy, nutty Cider for desert pairings.

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.
