I’ll admit that I’ve long been intrigued by the artwork on this, but I never picked this up on account of not really being all that into hard cider.  My wife, however, thought this was way too good an option to pass up for my Halloween series.

CiderCider Name: Zombie Killer

Brewery: B. Nektar (Ferndale, MI)

Style: Hard Cider

ABV: 5.5%

Description: A hard apple cider brewed with honey and cherries.  Read all about the brew and its ingredients here.

Appearance: Poured to an easy to see through pinkish/red body.

Smell: Sweet cider notes with a hint of tart cherry.

Taste: It started with a fresh and delicious apple cider base before rich honey notes settled in on top.  This sweetness was then followed by a layering of tart cherry that peaked around the end of the sip.  Crisp, clean finish.

Mouthfeel: Rich, medium-plus body with low level carbonation.

Hype: Slightly elevated, but for personal reasons.  The brewery has an excellent reputation and this is a beverage I’d had eye on for awhile now.

Overall: This was amazing!  An excellent blending of sweet honey and tart cherry made this an appealing sensory experience across the board (for the sake of argument let’s just say it sounded great too).  My wife and I both loved this and will definitely be picking up more.
