Note: batch 5 and all subsequent batches are put into Red Wine Barrels (the batch number is printed on the label). All earlier batches were in White Wine Barrels and should not be rated here. Release 5 of Brainless on Cherries, has a new twist- we used Red Wine (cab and syrah) barrels for the second fermentation and aging as apposed to White Wine barrels. The result, dryer, lighter body, fruit shines thru and a bit of tannin and wood notes in the finish

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish pour with pinkish head, aroma brought notes of cherry pie, cherry juice, hints of slight wine, oaky notes, hints of a medicine in there, touch of vinegar as well. Taste is a mix of red wine, oak, slight tart lemon into a cherry, medicinal notes, hints of spice, finishing slightly tart, sweet.

onceblind (7052) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Clear brilliant copper with a slight reddish pinkish tone. The aroma is of sweet tart cherries with a big backbone of strong boozy pale malt cereal tones. Taste has some slight sour cherries with a mild sweetness and some strong pale grain maltiness, a bit of toast, strong boozy cracker/biscuitiness, and a faint cherry tone on the finish. Most of the body comes from the strong Belgian blonde background.

Tap at Congregation Azusa. Pours a flat, reddish amber. Nose is old, dusty, strange. Taste is harsh stomach acid, butyric, extreme newspaper/wet cardboard. Heavily oxidized at some point. Undrinkable.

Bottle. Clear ruby color, with a fizzy head which quickly dissipates to nothing. Aroma is very faint cherry. Flavors of cherry juice, notes of oak, light acidity, and and some alcohol. Overall fizzy, sweet, and boozy.

22 oz bottle, as pictured. Poured a pink-red, sorta hazy, not too much head on it. Smells a little fruity, a little wine-ish. Taste is similar....kinda dry, definitely a dry grape and red-fruit (cherry, raspberry indistinguishable) flavor to it. Easy to drink but you definitely feel it.
