Citrus/apple fruit; spicy; biscuit/cereal malt; some banana-like yeast character. Sweetish flavor, which comes through more in aftertaste (wonder if they used the Westmalle yeast?). Firm bitterness. (Release #2)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slightly cloudy golden with a thin foamy and very Lacey white cap. Lovely aroma of fresh cut grass and slightly fruity Belgian yeast esters, and a touch of tangerine. Lovely flavor, just lovely, with flavors of grassy leafy hops, clean pale malt, a bit of floral resiny flavors with low bitterness, maybe a touch of dandelion, and finishes dry and slightly dusty and estery. Very delightful.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle, my bottle reads release #23? Pours hazy orange with a huge at least three finger white head and cobwebby lace. Aroma is fresh hops, it actually smells like fresh picked off the vine hops, strong lupulin, citrus, piney, medium weight malt. The taste is very much like the aroma, there is a nice fruity Belgian quality, strong citrus, yeasty, sturdy bitterness with enough complexity to not be overbearing. The carbonation could have been higher, a bit soft. Decent, I assumed the Brainless series was all about fruit, but i guess not. After i posted my review i went on their website and looked up some stuff, i now realize this bottle that i am now drinking and rated relatively high was bottled on 8-25-14, over seven months ago. This still tastes good, assuming from the Belgian influence, but would love to try a fresher bottle.
