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

Thanks Dakine. Batch #7. Reddish pour with a red-tinged head. Aroma was cherries and oak. The head went away so quick. Taste was very bubbly, cherries, dry oaky aftertaste. -ehh.

Pours a clear golden with nearly no head. Sweet apple cider and raisins on the nose. Mildly spicy flavors approximate the aromas. Wet, smooth, heavier mouthfeel.

This curiously red colored beer has a sweet aroma of fruit. It has a strong taste if wine much like a sparkling wine made from red grapes. Very unique and good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer has a pink amber appearance. The aroma has cherry, yeast, and some apple. The taste is somewhat dry, and a bit sour. The palate is invigorating. Itís quite good. I recommend this if you want a fruit beer without much sweetness.

Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with effectively no head on it. Nose has some dark fruit elements (i.e., cherries), and just a little bit of feet in there. Taste smacks of cherry (which I hate, which is why Iím making my wife drink most of this), and I canít get beyond that. Really donít like that, but itís because of the fruit.

an older bottle. Lower carbonation. Aroma of sour cherry, red wine. Sweet, but in no way cloying or syrupy. Sour cherry, with traces of red wine and oak. Nicely integrated. Still a very slight bit of alcohol detected but not enough to burn. Grab a couple bottles and let them age.

Bottle, Batch 14. Looks like cherry juice, even and fire engine red, almost no fizz or head. Not really much of an aroma, but drinks like cherry candied liqueur, with just a slight alcohol burn, and quite well balanced. Very nice overall. (#5166, 7/7/2013)

Nicely integrates the barrel, slightly sour, dangerously drinkable. Low carbonation and finishes sweet but not syrupy

I wanted so much out of this. Pours a faint pink gold with fluffed white head. Nose was tart cherries and mild Belgian yeasty spice. Flavor was spiced cherries, not that enjoyable. I wanted it to be better. Smooth body...

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2014 11.4% release 14, bottle picked up from the distributors at the Yokohama Brewerís Cup. It pours like a golden belgian ale with a heavy pink tint, the color is a light red with a sparkling wine like carbonation with no head. The aroma is a musty wine red with hints of sweet fruity cherries-some belgian notes sneak through. The taste is really boozy, bitter with a dry cherry finish. nice enough but it packs a high ABV punch which kind of overpowers everything else. I would prefer this to be in the 7-8% range. It is definitely too boozy which gives it a wine coolerish flavor profile. Not as good as what I was expecting, I preferred the Brainless on Peaches. -----had a later batch last night which seemed much less boozy. A deep ruby pour with an oaky cherry aroma. The taste is very tart and earthy not at all balanced but nice enough...
