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 =)

This beer is almost "wine-like" looking with a rose/light pink color. The scent is honey, cherry and metallic. When you first taste it, it is very sweet. It is almost like a hard cider/wine mix. Definitely not for a person who is used to dark, hearty beers; more for a fruity, light beer person. I would not be able to drink bottle after bottle but it is very refreshing for a warm summer night!

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.

This mead was very interesting! Definitely something I enjoyed trying. The look is cool, with the more masculine label that really attracts all sorts of drinkers, not just the women who enjoy hard ciders such as this. The smell is extremely fruity. While you are obviously tasting apple notes, you also get the yummy cherry juice. I think this is an overall crisp and clean drink.

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.
