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

adnielsen (10424) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with not much head retention. Somewhat dry red wine, grape, light plum, strawberry, cherry, pretty straight forward aroma. Quite dry, light leather, tannic, dry oaky, dull cherry flavor that dries out a ton on the vinous finish. A fair amount of booze on the finish. Again, not a big fan of the Brainless series.

marcus (8698) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle shared by bhensonb. POurs cherry orange with no head at all and a cherry-tinged fruit aroma. There is a slightly harsh cherry flavor with noticeable alcohol and a heavy oak finish.

bhensonb (13616) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle from France 44. Pours ruddy orange with no head to speak of. Aroma has cherry notes. Certainly there is fruit. Med + body. Flavor is very oaky and the cherry is quite firm. It is very enjoyable.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 12.05.2013, 0,65l bottle @ home:
Small shortlasting fizzy head. Aroma is sour red berries, redwine, grass, wood, rhubarb. Taste is fizzy and a little harsh, woody, grass, redwine, red berries, almond essence. Medium bitterness. Not really my kind of beer.

50belair (3253) - Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Cloudy pinkish amber pour with a whit head. Oak and cherry aromas. Uber evervescent with mild cherry, yeast, with some muted caramel and oak back beats. Not as good as earlier batches..

maley1 (1036) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2013
Reddish amber pour with small off white head. Aroma of tart cherries, yeast and red wine. Taste of faint cherries, yeast and cheap red wine, slightly dry on the finish. Full bodied, low carbonation, just average.

phaleslu (9017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2013
22 oz. bottle from Dutch’s. Release #12. Pours a hazy ruby with a small off-white head. Big cherry funk from this, with floral notes in the form of rose petal, sweet doughy malts. Underlying Belgian yeast character, but not dominant. The barrel character is fairly subdued, as well. Medium-bodied, with fairly low carbonation and a sweet, funky mouthfeel. Good.

pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - APR 28, 2013
On draught at Freakin’ Frog. Light red, almost color of weak red wine. Nice aroma of sour pie cherries. Light yeast and malt flavors with cherry, sweetness, and red wine notes. Hides alcohol content well.

obguthr (5318) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2013
Vinous coriander nose,somewhat vegetal, but comes across minty, like the spit after you have just brushed your teeth. Crystal clear copper, headless.Tomatoes, toothpaste, cherries flavor. Odd and unpleasant. Tart, medium body, a little hot. There is so much wrong with this beer I hardly know where to begin. I love the brewery, dislike this series, despise this beer. Little redeeeming value.
