Brilliant yellow color. Dusty, hoppy aromas of dusty herbs, hop flakes, straw and eucalyptus incense, and apple core with a supple, crisp, effervescent, light-to-medium body and a snappy pickled melon rind, brown grass and chalk, and nut shell finish. A dry and dusty 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.
