Style: Specialty Cider / Perry
Style Information
Specialty Cider (or Perry) are distinguished from the Standard Cider (or Perry) by both flavor and alcohol content. One flavor difference would be the use of a combination of fruits and/or spices. Also, they may use specific fruit varieties that are more regional than a Standard Cider. Color should usually be pale yellow to gold, and should be clear. However, this can vary depending on the fruit used. Aroma will follow the fruit used.
