Hazy color. Green aromas and flavors of baked apples, herbal hops, and dried tropical fruits with a supple, bright, spritzy, dryish light body and a smooth, brisk finish evoking notes of spiced lemon and apples, pickled melon rind, cheese rind, and mint finish. A mellow, lightly hopped cider for the table.

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.
