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

brenn79 (1522) - 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.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2012
22oz bomber split with Anndiesel. Bright pink-red, thick and opaque. Thinnish bubbly head, soda-like. Some nice cherry in the aroma. I get way more wine notes than cherries in the flavor though. Sort of boozy, in a Boons Farm way. A decent, enjoyable strong beer, but I think the wine barrel kill it for me. They take away all subtlety, adding a vinous, boozy, cheap feel. Unique, but not to my liking.
