Pale golden yellow color. Mild, fruity, vinegary aromas of apple cider vinaigrette on arugula, reduced lemon, and apple brandy with a soft, tangy, effervescent, very sweet light body and a smooth, breezy nutskin and grass finish. A tart, lightly acetic 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.
