Hazy yellow straw color. Aromas of coconut-vanilla cream, pineapple, sticky rice and wet straw, and mop with a round, crisp, spritzy, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, captivating, medium-length candied macadamia nut, wilted spinach salad, overripe lemon, and wood pulp finish. A full-bodied and tropical cider for creative dinner 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.
