Zombie Killer Cherry Cyser
B. Nektar Meadery
This is an apple honey wine with cherry juice added in, and is a naturally gluten free product. This batch kicks in at 6% abv.
Aroma: Strong scent of apple and cherry on the nose. The honey doesn’t make itself immediately apparent though.
Appearance: Pale pink in color, with very light carbonation. There was no head, but it is labeled as “wine” as opposed to beer.
Flavor: Very forward with the apple cider, the cherry flavor lingers on the tongue. The honey is very light, noticed as a light sweetness on the edges. A little tart in a good way.
Mouthfeel: Light on the tongue, with a light carbonation. The sweetness is a little cloying, but in a very nice way; and the acidity breaks through in a very nice way.
Overall Impression: This is very tasty. The flavors meld well and the mixture is very good, probably why it was the Mazer Cup winner in 2011.
My pictures for this brew went mysteriously missing from my computer… so I borrowed the pictures from the guys over at the daily beer review.
