2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. lightly hazed dark honey-colored body with a small, creamy off-white head. mostly typical aroma, american hop pine resin / citrus fruit with a moderate touch of burnt caramel syrup and a hint of some Belgian yeast esters (which with some mint and shallot-like hop scents, seems to come across as a burnt toothpaste and herb smell). very soft velvety texture, nice to experience, but there’s a scorched butter and mint flavor throughout.

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.
