This is an open-ended category for cider or perry with other adjuncts such that it does not fit any of the categories above. This includes the use of spices and/or other sweeteners. A cider with added honey may be entered here if the cider character remains dominant. Otherwise it should be entered as mead in the cyser sub-category. Entrants MUST specify all major ingredients and adjuncts. Entrants MUST specify carbonation level (still, petillant, or sparkling). Entrants MUST specify sweetness (dry or medium).


Aroma/Flavor: The cider character must always be present, and must fit with adjuncts.
Appearance: Clear to brilliant. Color should be that of a common cider unless adjuncts are expected to contribute color.
Mouthfeel: Average body, may show tannic (astringent) or heavy body as determined by adjuncts.


Apples with a variety of adjuncts such as spices, sweetners, honey, etc.
