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

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.

Bottle. Clear ruby color, with a fizzy head which quickly dissipates to nothing. Aroma is very faint cherry. Flavors of cherry juice, notes of oak, light acidity, and and some alcohol. Overall fizzy, sweet, and boozy.

pete4999 (1005) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2013
22 oz bottle, as pictured. Poured a pink-red, sorta hazy, not too much head on it. Smells a little fruity, a little wine-ish. Taste is similar....kinda dry, definitely a dry grape and red-fruit (cherry, raspberry indistinguishable) flavor to it. Easy to drink but you definitely feel it.

On tap @ Epic (Denver). Pours a nice red/ruby pour with a white head. Sweet cherry juice on the nose. Some grass, cherry skin, and a bit of oak. A little bit boozy. Mild cough medicine. Flavor is grape and cherry juice. Grass, oak, and a touch of booze. Fairly sweet and sugary.

MrHangover (2455) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013
Tap @ the brewery tap room. Pours a light pinkish brew with a small, off white head on top. Aroma of cherries and some vineous characters with a touch of oak. Flavour has cherries, some dry oak and there is definitely some red wine in there. Good brew, could be more complex though.
