COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

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.

Flat, luminous apricot color. Smooth body bit of cherry soda aroma and flavor with a slight Belgian twang underpinning. Green cherry finish. Ok overall.

ben4321 (4094) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 2/8/13, Release # 13

Aroma: The nose has some sour cherries, wood, barnyard funk, and yeast
Appearance: It pours a reddish color with a small, quickly dissipating head and no lace
Flavor: The taste is on the tart side, with some wood, funk, wine, and fruity flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has soft-to-average carbonation, and a dry, tart finish
Overall Impression:  I found this to be a fairly interesting and worth try offering. It has a nice tartness to it, some funkiness, and mustiness too.

Suchy3 (7) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2013 does not count
22oz bottle. Release #14. Strong oak aroma and tastes the same. Cherry taste is somewhat faint to me. Zero head. More bubbly than anything. Eh..

GothGargoyle (1421) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2013
Clear reddish brown with no head. Aroma is cherry, sour cherries, honey, hint of sour funk. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel, sweet on the palate, fruity finish. Taste is cherry, caramel, blood plum.

EKGoldings (556) - Radford, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bomber, #14, 11.4%. Pours orange-red (oxidized anthocyanins), head disappears almost immediately, lower carbonation. Aroma is Belgian spice with some fruit. Taste is spicy with just a hint of cherry, dry taste. Bready-yeasty flavor is on the top. Not a huge fan of this beer but it is interesting and well-made. I get a bit of astringency in the aftertaste which knocked the overall down a bit.

Toadvine (72) - Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2013
22oz bomber from AJ's. Release # 5, 10.1% abv. Pours a ruddy red with a rapidly receding head. Highly effervescent and not a ton of aroma. Fairly sour with a cherry bite. Not sure how much of the oak comes through -- I was hoping for some vanilla notes to come out. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this poured from tap at SanTan brewing in Arizona. Didn't smell much but the taste is loaded with cherries. Smooth but tart. Ok
