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

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Pours light reddish with a small white head. Aroma of a bit of a cherry cough drop thing going on, a bit candyish and some sugary notes and a light malty note. Flavor starts sweet and cherry, and really just stays there, a bit syrupy and sweet, sugary. Cherry soda, hmmm not sure how this came to be, a lot of residual sugars in there, cloying.

Gription79 (2246) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. Crystal clear red beer without head. The aroma is fruity Belgian yeast, cherries, alcohol, red wine. The flavor is similar with a lot of alcohol heat. Not very well balanced. I found this hard to drink.

Very interesting. I donít understand what is so Belgian about it, outside of the fact that it has cherries in it and it was aged on oak. It is listed at 10.7% alcohol, but you donít get any heat at all. It has a nice cloudy, red color and pinkish head. Itís really, really good. Subtle flavors,nothing over the top and there is a slight vegetal funk on the nose. Itís pretty cool.

brenn79 (1498) - Idaho, USA - SEP 14, 2012
22 oz. bottle, batch 9- Pours hazy dark orange with a soapy white head that reduces immediately. The aroma is tart, cherry syrup, oak, not bad actually. The taste is the same, cherry syrup, malt, Belgian yeast, oak. The body is medium, carbonation is high, it leaves a syrupy residue on the roof of my mouth. Overall I liked this better than the Brainless on Peaches, not bad.
