It smells like heather. Pink champagne. Herbal, with roots , earthy and with plenty of baked apples, spice, citric tartness and fruitiness. It has an earthy perfume on it. Hearty woody and tremendously fruity. Honey and cherry with a tart little taste, a woody flowery herbal makes this a lovely mead. ( my first one in this style actually =)

Zombie killer is a hard cider brewed with honey and tart cherry juice. The aromas are apples, cinnamon, cherry and faint honey. It tastes like an apple cherry pie with a big apple, cherry honey palate. It is semi-sweet - not cloying - and might make a good alternative for folks looking for a gluten free beverage.Had this with chocolate and the pairing was very nice.

I dont know what to say other than this is the best "cider" ive ever had as of right now. Very crisp and almost more cherry sweet. I normally like the more tart english style ciders but this changed that for good. Big thing is its not sugary sweet like some of the junk ciders out there.
