Light gold color. Toasty aromas and flavors of butter pecan, caramel coated apple, funnel cake, and rice cakes with a round, vibrant, finely carbonated, moderately sweet medium body and an even, compelling, medium-length finish with notes of buttered toasted pumpkin loaf finish. A toasty cider that offers a sweet treat for autumn imbibing.

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.
