Additional Info

  • ABV%: 10.30%
  • Brew Date: 12/10/10
  • Brewery: Salt Lake City
  • Notes: Release 3 we decided to add another layer of flavor to this beer by combining both Sweet and Sour Cherries in the barrel fermentation and aging process but with a higher ratio of sour cherries. We took our double gold medal winning Brainless?003f?0042elgian, added cherry puree and aged it in French Chardonnay casks for a secondary fermentation in the barrels and some additional aging. Pours a beautiful deep ruby color with a medium white head to pink head. A nice nose of sweet and sour cherries, Belgian malts, and barrel aging. The flavor is dominated by white wine dryness and malt and fruit driven sweetness.

  • Boil: Premient, Tettnang, and Saaz.
  • Fruit: 100% pure cherry Puree (no preservatives)
