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

Smells of cherry, didn’t even know this was a barrel aged beer before I came to rate it. Tartness of the cherries seems to cover up the belgian yeast flavor, but there is a slight hint of it. Pretty tart.

Tannin and cherries are everywhere, but a bit one dimensional and doesn’t meld as nearly well as the Peaches. still OK though.

Bottle. Pours a pinkish red color with white head. Sweet, tart, cherry flavors. Cherry, bread, belgian yeast, fruity sweet flavors. Nothing great.

The tannins on this one gave it a tart flavour, which along with the cherry had an interesting interplay. Didn7t really jump out at me though.

The last of the brainless tasting my friends and I enjoyed inside the tent in Zion while it rained cats and dogs slash snowed outside and we were pretty good by this point. Cherries are definitely prominent but in a sweet way. Possibly the best of the bunch, though I do love raspberries more as just the fruit.

Draft at sb. Pours a crystal clear rubied dark amber with a light creamy tan ring of mousse. Fresh fruity nose--both cherried and vinous. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Some oak, some red wine, some light pie cherries on the mid palate. A little brown sugar underneath that, maybe some caramel. Pleasant light finish from all these elements.
