Notes/Commercial Description:
The transformation of Scratch #3-2007 to Splinter Gold has been a slow rest in oak wine barrels dosed with brettanomyces. During a two-year aging period the horsey flavors of the brett combined with the Westmalle yeast used during primary fermentation to create a complex blend of flavors. Bone-dry and 12% abv, Splinter Gold is highly carbonated.

Bottle shared by yourfragile

Appearance: golden peach pour with good head and lacing
Smell: Mostly brett with some oak and very faint funk
Taste: Brett dominates, followed by oak
Mouthfeel: very dry, high carbonation
Overall: Very brett-forward beer, not sour at all though. I didn't find it particularly enjoyable.
