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

Reddish pour, small tannish head. Aroma of cherries, light wine notes, yeast. Flavor is drier than I remember, nice yeasty notes, cherries and sugar cookies.

Very interesting. I donít understand what is so Belgian about it, outside of the fact that it has cherries in it and it was aged on oak. It is listed at 10.7% alcohol, but you donít get any heat at all. It has a nice cloudy, red color and pinkish head. Itís really, really good. Subtle flavors,nothing over the top and there is a slight vegetal funk on the nose. Itís pretty cool.

Nicely integrates the barrel, slightly sour, dangerously drinkable. Low carbonation and finishes sweet but not syrupy

Pours a clear light red with an off white head. Nose and taste is dry crisp cherry woody. Very well balanced very nice body. Surrendered more of tge bottle than I would have like to my in laws who normally donít dig beer, but loved this one.

Release #5 courtesy of douglas88 pours deep clear cherry juice with white head trimmed with a light pinkish hue. The aroma has some apples and pears as well as some fruity sourness, tartness and then yeasty spices. The taste has a great play going on between tart red wine notes, spicy oak, sweet apples and pears, some sour fruitiness and then rolling into soft spongy yeasty spiciness. This beer is really hitting the spot as all the conflicting notes come together with harmony. Yummers!

The last of the brainless tasting my friends and I enjoyed inside the tent in Zion while it rained cats and dogs slash snowed outside and we were pretty good by this point. Cherries are definitely prominent but in a sweet way. Possibly the best of the bunch, though I do love raspberries more as just the fruit.

Aroma of subtle cherries and woods. Wow this has a complex flavour. Getting a very nice cherry flavour up front layered with woody notes, along with a hint of smokiness and spices.
