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

Aroma of subtle cherries and woods. Wow this has a complex flavour. Getting a very nice cherry flavour up front layered with woody notes, along with a hint of smokiness and spices.

Not what I expected. Not funky at all. Pours a bright pink/red with a thin pink head that later dies to litereally nothing. Smells fruity and sugary with no wood or earthen notes. Light bitterness with a literal syrup of cherries being the only flavour profile. Slightly tart and bitter with too much sweetness up front for me.

500ml bottle pours a pinkish red color with very little head leaving no lacing. Aroma is mild cherries with some woody notes and hints of red wine. Taste is a light cherry tartness with a malty sweetness and dry red wine and woody finish. Flavours did not blend well in this brew, kind of a mess. Not one of my favorites for this style.

Poured from a bottle. Not an attractive beer, no head or lacing, orangey red. Sharp vinegar nose with vanilla and cherry. Not nearly as sour as I expected.

A subdued aroma of oak and wine with a hint of vinegar. Pours a pinkish orange color with no head. A sour taste with hints of cherries, a dry feel with a chalky mineral finish.

Slight cherry hint on the nose. Lacing fades very fast leaving a very slight head. Color is golden brown with a slight red hue. Cherry pit on the nose. Not a whole lot as far as palate goes. Finishes smooth but fades fast. Not my favorite, but definitely worth a try.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2016 On tap at Albertsons. As much as I liked the raspberry edition, I like this one even more. Perhaps the barrel aging adds some nuances, but overall perception is good, no sign of the 10%+ ABV. Deep amber pour with faintest of heads. Mild fruity nose, more pit fruit elements in the taste, hints of a Belgian dubbel as well. Complex, refreshing, tasty...waiting for the kick.
