Pale yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of candied ginger, Chinese 5 spice, and vanilla fondant with a satiny, crisp, fruity light-to-medium body and a long finish that shows notes of thyme and lime peel finish. A pure spiced cider with and all natural appeal.

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.
