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

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..

EKGoldings (616) - 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

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

Bov (10485) - 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

SlackerMads (2102) - DENMARK - 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.
