Bright color. Green, herbal, spicy aromas and flavors of herb and spice garden, minted apples, coriander and dried citrus, and medicinal tincture and mouthwash with a supple, crisp, effervescent, dryish medium-to-full body and an interesting, medium-length finish with notes of lime spritzed kiwi and starfruit, spiced jicama, green apple, and grass finish. An interesting melange of herb and spice notes that should make for some innovative parings.

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.
