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

Pours a red orange with a small head and sweet, fruity cherry aroma. Taste is sweet as well, apparent cherry notes throughout with light spice, wood and fruits leading to a sweet berry finish. ABV well hidden and cherries aren’t overwhelming, nice brew

madvike (2843) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle (Batch 22) - Pours pinkish amber with a thin off-white head. Nose is grainy, a little yeasty and not much fruit. A hint of SweetTart. Taste is grainy, with dusty yeast and really no cherries. Watery and thinnish. A huge disappointment as I really like cherry beers.

22 oz bottle. Pours a clear light reddish amber color with a small fizzy pink head. The aroma and flavor have a big cherry juice note, sweet, mild red wine character, tannins and some wood.Much like batch 1-4, it came off more like a juice than it did beer. No sign of the abv.

Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Very nice ruby red amber color. Cherry aroma. Sips almost sour lambic like, very fruity. But nicely dry and balanced with the wine barrel flavor, which is very pronounced. Low carbonation liveliness. Alcohol is hardly noticeable.

Not sure if this one works. The various flavor components are individually superb, but they fight each other. A bit too much dissonance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
