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

marv3mania (182) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2013
22 oz. bottle in a snifter. Appearance is an amber-pink color with a fizzy white head which dissipates very quickly. Aroma is rich pale malts, banana, cloves, some cherry tartness, and Belgian yeast funk. Taste follows the nose. It definitely tastes like a Belgian ale with a bit of cherries. Unfortunately, that combination doesn’t work as well as I’d hoped. Overall, this is pretty average.

On tap at the Denver taproom. Golden/amber and clear appearance with a small white head. Aroma of wine, oak, cherries, light spices, tannins and noble hops. Similar flavor, fruity and dry with Belgian yeast characteristics and a solid malty profile. Medium body, the alcohol is mostly hidden.

arminjewell (6152) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish pour with pinkish head, aroma brought notes of cherry pie, cherry juice, hints of slight wine, oaky notes, hints of a medicine in there, touch of vinegar as well. Taste is a mix of red wine, oak, slight tart lemon into a cherry, medicinal notes, hints of spice, finishing slightly tart, sweet.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Clear brilliant copper with a slight reddish pinkish tone. The aroma is of sweet tart cherries with a big backbone of strong boozy pale malt cereal tones. Taste has some slight sour cherries with a mild sweetness and some strong pale grain maltiness, a bit of toast, strong boozy cracker/biscuitiness, and a faint cherry tone on the finish. Most of the body comes from the strong Belgian blonde background.
