Bright burnt sienna color. Toasty aromas of caramelized apples, pears and nuts, light molasses, maple nut fudge, and chocolate raisins with a silky, crisp, finely carbonated, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, medium-long zucchini nut bread French toast, hint of maple sugar, and paw paw finish. A sweet and dreamy nose leads to a sophisticated palate in this roasty and food-friendly 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.
