Gold color. Rustic aromas and flavors of grassy mud, oiled leather, mushroomy forest floor, and smoked celery with a supple, racy, spritzy, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a compelling, medium-long finish with accents of apple sauce in a teak bowl, apple core and seed, carob-caramel-nut cookie, and cedar mulch. An assemblage of earthy, fruity, and woody tones make this a good choice for adventurous sessions and pairings.

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.
