AN ACT to amend the alcoholic beverage control law and  the  agriculture

BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subdivision 7-b of section  3  of  the  alcoholic  beverage

to read as follows:
  7-b. (A) "Cider" means the  partially  or  fully  fermented  juice  of
fresh, whole apples OR OTHER POME FRUITS, containing more than three and

be sweetened OR FLAVORED after fermentation with  [apple]  FRUIT  juice,
[apple]  FRUIT juice concentrate, [or] sugar, MAPLE SYRUP, HONEY, SPICES
OR OTHER AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS, separately or in combination. Cider  may
contain retained or added carbon dioxide.
  (B)  IN  THE  EVENT THAT AN ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE MEETS THE DEFINITION OF
BOTH A CIDER, AS DEFINED IN THIS SUBDIVISION, AND A WINE, AS DEFINED  IN
SUBDIVISION  THIRTY-SIX  OF  THIS SECTION, THE BRAND OR TRADE NAME LABEL
