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

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Label print says "Release #12, 10.7% ALC./ VOL.) Pours a hazy pinkish with a small white head. Dry cherry aroma, quite some alcohol too. Medium body, cherries really deliver in the flavour, has this marzipan touch and again a little boozy. There’s a rubbery edge to it. Not unpleasantly so. Actually a rather satisfying cherry beer - no yeastiness and not overly sweet. 100912

Bottle shared at Craft. Light haze on this amber beer. Tidy white head. Very light palate, semi crisp and semi dry. Light malt with very light cherry. Dry finish. Surprisingly insipid. Disappointing.

Bottle, release #12, 10.7%. Hazy pinkish purple color, pink head with fair retention. Aroma of vanilla, lemon, cherries, caramel. Taste is tannic cherries, slightly boozy edge, dry finish. Think I like the white wine version a bit better.

Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle (Release 8) at the CBC First Birthday Party, London. Thanks to Ken, I think. Pours clear, ruby-gold with a light, white head. Some fruity, malty sugars on the nose. Big and sweet flavor with some strawberries and cherries, along with sugar and caramel. Full bodied with average carbonation. Mild warmth in the finish with sticky sugars, ripe and semi-ripe fruits, sweet bread, light caramel and faintly tangy fruits. It’s a very sweet beer.
