3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber, #14, 11.4%.
Pours orange-red (oxidized anthocyanins), head disappears almost immediately, lower carbonation.
Aroma is Belgian spice with some fruit. Taste is spicy with just a hint of cherry, dry taste. Bready-yeasty flavor is on the top.
Not a huge fan of this beer but it is interesting and well-made. I get a bit of astringency in the aftertaste which knocked the overall down a bit.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
THANKS to Randy! 65 cl. bottle split by 4 @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Batch 12. Reddish amber, zero head whatsoever no mater how hard you pour, head instantly vanishes. Sweet cherry juice nose with light cheese. Taste is sweet cherry, cherry candy, gelatine candy, light sweet wine, faint spices,…. Body is quite akin to touch thicker juice. Nice but not stellar & the price is crazy. Also how is this not listed as a fruit beer on RB?

Tap. Pours bright orange with white head. Aroma is very strong Belgian yeast, cherry, fruit, spice. Taste is very winey with good cherry flavor. A bit medicinal but good.

Pours a ruby red with a white foam head that fizzles away quickly. Aroma is mainly cherries along with some Belgian yeast. Flavor is slightly sweet cherries and Belgian yeast. Has plenty of carbonation. My least favorite of the Brainless series so far, but still quite tasty.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cherries just do not work with beer. Have yet to have one that we like. Pours a fairly bright red with little head. Smells a bit of cherries and red wine. Lots of cherries in the taste, a bit sour, some lambic in the finish. Couldn't have a whole glass of it. Had on tap at the brewery.

Draft sample at the annex. Reddish orange pour with a white ring around the edges. Light aroma of cranberry cocktail juice. Flavor is dry wine with a hint of fruit. Nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Backlog) Bottle, assuming it was batch 5+. Ruby pour with white head. Vinous and cherry aromas. Light cherry, wine and oak flavors are light and almost nonexistent, not very drinkable and boring.

Bomber. Poured a ruddy brownish red with only slightest head noted. Aroma is a very light mixture of cherries and grapes. Tastes is a sweet/soured blend of fruits. Some belgian yeast funk in the aftertaste. Tastes became a bit more complex as this one warms up.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a darker red with no real head or lacing. Tastes like a watery wine and cherries. Maybe hints of beer. I like beer of different varieties and flavors, but I do want it to taste like a beer. This does not to me. I really am not a fan.
It is drinkable. That is it.
