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

On tap at Grumpy’s. Gold color. Soft carbonation. Real cherry flavor and aroma. Lightly swewt and pronounced Belgian yeast, which surprised me.

Bov (9755) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 13, 2013
from Erzbierschof - cloudy reddish-orange beer with no head retention; fair aroma of cherries, gently sourish and with light woody notes; full-bodied, highly carbonated, tasty and slightly chewy; a light woody tartness, moderately dry aftertaste, long with more notes of cherries, wood and warming alcohol - original and very interesting

Copper redish in color on the pour. Lightly bitter on the palate and hints of wine throughout the drink.

SlackerMads (1700) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle, release 12. Hazy red with a quickly disappearing pink head. Aroma is light leather, cherries, almonds, wood, alcohol. Taste is sweet with cherries, wood, marzipan. Slight acidic in the taste and a little boozy in the finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Cherry marzipan booze? Sure I like it.

Definitely not New Glarus. The color and aroma are magnificent, but the cherry flavor is fleeting and weak. Very effervescent. I'm not really sure why it is claimed to be a Belgian Strong. The yeast flavors are indeed Belgian-like, but mild. That being said, it is a good example of a fruit beer and very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Blood orange color with quickly fading foam. Smells like apricots and funky basement. Sweet and tart cherries with a slight funk and some mild bitterness. Medium-bodied with a very dry finish and low carbonation. Kind of a weird tripel, but definitely worth trying.

dmac (4204) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2012
22oz bomber from EZ. Poured a very ugly reddish brown body with a fizzy head that tried to establish itself as I poured like a soda head does but it faded as fast as it formed. Aroma was rather vinous overall with notes of Belgian yeast, dry bread crusts, cherry skins, sweet soda notes, honey and oak. Nice body with a medium mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation that finishes dry and has a rather quick fading aftertaste. Flavor isn’t quite as good as the aroma but has some similarities. Notes of dry crusts, yeast, cherry soda, dry wood and some wine. Not bad but has room for improvement.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Batch 7. Pours bright red with a split second pink head. Nose is big sour cherry, roses, soy sauce. Taste is one dimensional. Sweet, bitter and lightly tart all at the same time from start to finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and sticky, light body and long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pineypower (2540) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle shared with Eduardo....pours out a rather attractive reddish color with a small white head. Aroma is of medicinal cough syrup, cherries, some yeast, spice and light woody notes. Taste is of medicinal cherries, one dimensional fruity yeast characters, light vanilla, wood. Alcohol rather well hidden.
