Bright light gold color. Hoppy aromas and flavors of spiced peach, sunflower, chrysanthemum, and passionfruit with a slightly chewy, vibrant, effervescent, off-dry light body and a polished, appealing, medium-length finish with impressions of sharp apple and pineapple relish finish. A vibrant and tropical dry-hopped cider with piles of alluring aromatics; and herb cooler of a 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.
