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

fakebeersnob (182) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a darker red with no real head or lacing. Tastes like a watery wine and cherries. Maybe hints of beer. I like beer of different varieties and flavors, but I do want it to taste like a beer. This does not to me. I really am not a fan. It is drinkable. That is it.

Dogbrick (8650) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Sample at the tap room in Denver. Pours a pinkish-red color with a thin fizzy pinkish-white head that evaporates quickly to a sparse outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of vine fruits, cherries and wheat. Full-bodied with flavors of tart cherries, earthy malt and vinous oak. The finish is fruity with a red cherry and oak aftertaste. Decent overall.
