Specialty Styles

The Specialty class includes beverages made with added flavorings, those made with substantial amounts of sugar sources to increase starting gravities, and beverages made from a combination of apple and pear juice (known as “pear cider” or “pider”).

The same general characteristics and fault descriptions apply to the Specialty class as to the Standard class, with the exception of the adjuncts allowed within each style category.
