This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

What is Splinter Blue? Splinter Blue combines three of our favorite things – Dreamweaver, tart cherries, and Brettanyomyces. To begin this process we fermented Dreamweaver wort with Belgian/Lambic yeast blend. After a complete fermentation we aged the beer in oak barrels with wild yeast and souring bacteria for one year and then added eighty pounds of tart cherries for another six months of aging.

I was pleasantly surprised when javib showed up to a bottleshare with this bottle. Thanks!

I didn't expect much based on old reviews. I was pleasantly surprised. It was a beautiful pour with a nice berry/sour aroma. The taste and mouthfeel did not disappoint. This was a very peasant sour and it has aged very gracefully. I traded for a bottle of my own it was so good.

Update: I opened my bottle at Toronado last night(10/11/11) and shared it with the beertenders. Highly carbed, tart and sour without that harsh acetic bite. Absolutely delicious.

Got this from klownsbery in an awesome trade and decided to crack it and share at thanksgiving.

A= The pour is a beautiful cloudy pink color. Actually one of the most interesting colors I've ever seen in a beer. The head is a slight pink color and very active akin to a sodas head rising up to about two fingers and falling somewhat quickly to a ring around the glass with no lacing evident.

S= The smell is tart cherries, wood, and loads of funk. The cherries hit me first with a nice tartness and are quickly swallowed by an earthy dirty funk smell. The wood stays underneath the entire smell yet is dominate enough to let you know that it is for sure there. A lot of acidity to it.

T= The taste is wonderful. Not too sour and not to sweet. The balance reminds me of Supplication. Great cherry flavor throughout and the funk doesn't play too much of a leading roll letting those who don't enjoy funk but love sours enjoy as well as those who love the funk keep guessing. The acidity is perfection in thise one letting the flavors come through without being so acidic you can't taste.

M= Perfection in a glass for a sour. The first sip I took it litterally felt like it danced across me tongue. Super high carbonation that actually is fun to drink. Akin to champagne. The mouth may actually be my favorite part of this beer.

D= I could drink this all the time. This is a beautiful beer. If this is any indication of where Troegs is moveing the the future I need on board. I hope they keep up with the Splinter Series and keep making sours for the East because this may top any sour I've ever had. I actually enjoyed this more than Cantillon sours as wild as that sounds. This is beauty in a glass.

Damn near as perfect a beer as I could imagine. The brett, cherries, wheat, and oak are all in harmony.

This poured a beautiful rose color, and smelled or sour cherries, oak, and brett.

The taste was all flavor to savor, with each sip allowing the combination of flavors to shine. The nose matched the flavor, and the carbonation was just perfect. Despite some reports of gushers, I found this carbonation to be spot on fine.

Mouthfeel was smooth and silky with tiny prickly bubbles, just how I like it.

Overall, I'd drink this stuff everyday if I could. Troegs, make this a regular. seriously.

Splinter Blue: Cracked to celebrate the life of my childhood puppy that had passed recently.

4/5 A: Pours a hazy light golden brown, with a pink hue.  The head was white, also with a pink hue, but receded very quickly.

4.5/5 S: The nose brings a blast of sour cherries and Brett.  The sour/funk is balanced by sweet cherries and wheat notes.

5/5 T: The taste is opposite the nose.  The sweet cherries lead the way, followed by sourness from the bugs, then some funky leather notes from the Brett.  The after taste has a cherry medicinal flavor melded with a wheat flavor.  There is some spiciness on the end as well.

4.5/5 M: Light bodied, highly carbonated and solidly sour.

5/5 D: Overall this beer is a winner.  Congrats to the guys over at Troegs!

Split one of my bottles with Jwiss22 a few days after the release. Beyond excited for this one, reviewed from notes.

A- Beer pours a sexy looking paler ruby red color with a very thin white head and a massive amount of carbonation visible from the steady stream of bubbles. Really do not want to consume this piece of fermented art because it looks unbelievable, but drinking it is half of the fun.

S- Immediately I am greeted with a slap in the face of sour cherries almost like a freshly picked cherries from the tree. I also pick up the subtle, earthy and funk undertones brought to you from the oh so fantastic use of Brett yeast. After a little warming I am picking up some subtle notes of steeped grains that promote a freshly baked dough character.

T- Now for the best part, right away I am transported back in time to my first sip of Supplication. My tongue is punished with the sour cherry treat and the onslaught continues to please all the way throughout the experience. I also pick up the leather funk of the Brett, it is subtle and melded well into the experience. The final finish is doughy, like bread or grains and brings on some clove hints of a very well brewed wheat beer. It is obvious that dreamweaver was used as the base for this masterpiece.

M- Just like the genius Troegner brothers intended to, it is full of carbonation that prickles all over my tongue and mouth. I am loving the experience and am reminded almost of a fine champagne. The carbonation is very abundant almost to the point of too much, but I feel it's perfect and really leaves you wanting more and more after each sip.

D: Really wish this was a seasonal or that much more was produced, I will be hanging on to my remaining bottles to see how it develops or if an offer comes up that I can't refuse. I can honestly say I could have drank the entire bottle myself, but the experience needed to be shared with others. Really reminded me of Supplication with the tremendous use of cherries to meld well with the other flavors. The Troegner brothers hit a home run with there first sour beer and I can only hope for more of the same. Watch out for them in the near future, until then please John brew more blue!

My second time drinking this beer and first time reviewing it.

Ripe raspberry color (bright and alive). No heady and a murky radiance from within of pink and peach.

Funky scents of light fruit and vinegar like acidity.

Puckering in tartness but not overly aggressive in this aspect. The fruit flavors are welcomed and while staying bold the flavors were not at all offensive. Delicious.

Strong carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. The sizzle of carbonation took away from this beer just slightly.

Easily drinkable even with the strength of flavor. Very nice.

Split w/ scottfrie. Much thanks! Drank 6/25/11.

A: A nice ruby-red grapefruit color that initially poured a MASSIVE head that dissipated nicely.

S: Whew. Talk about barnyard funk indeed. Strong notes of Brett that dominate the nose. A hint of tart (green apples?) and some cherry comes through.

T: The Brett comes through in the taste as well, but in a very balanced way. This beer is a refreshingly delightful balance between tart green apple and sour Brett. There's a hint of cherry, but it appears to have faded a bit.

M: Nicely carbonated, and the body is oh-so-nicely intermediate. There is a bit of a syrupy finish that comes across as a bit off, but it's good.

O:This is an extremely tasty beer. It's a refreshing combo of sour and tart.

Big thanks to urwithdave for the share

A - It pours a turbid pink hue, not dissimliar to pink grapefruit juice, and is capped with a tight and respectable cap of froth.

S - The nose offers some tropical fruit notes as well as general bushy berry notes, and not necessarily cherries. There is about equal parts sharp-tart gingery Brett and sour Lacto, and the brew smells just about as sweet and fruity as it does wild-sour.

T - In a night of phenomenal brews, this one more than holds it own. First off, the flavor profile is fairly distinct from other wild/sours; it seems to have an interesting underlying sweetness that is reminiscent of Flanders Red. There is some luscious tart cherry flavor; I distinctly perceive blueberry, and assorted berries to a lesser degree, as well. The cherry-berry-drupe melange is coupled with strong farm-y Lactic notes; fruity and bright Brett suggests tropical fruit, a la Mai Tai, on the finish. This is just fantastic tasting stuff.

M - The brew is fairly creamy for the style; the feel seems to highlight the sweetness. I'd have to say the feel is good, because I couldn't imagine it being different.

O - This brew reminds me in a strange way of mixed berry yogurt. At any rate, it is phenomenal, unusual, and emminently enjoyable.

Two 6oz pours from a 750ml into a wine glass. Purchased for $5 each at the Tröegs Brewing Company scratches and splinters the Lakewood Winking Lizard event. Enjoyed with good friends and Chris Trogner.

Splinter blue is a pinkish-grapefruit color with mauve and salmon colored highlights plus a white head. It looks absolutely stunning in the glass. The compact white head leaves behind some nice lacing. Some active carbonation is noted but the beer is cloudy for the most part.

The beer is so pleasant and it's pretty expressive. It's composed of sour cherry and brettanomyces, giving it a wild and sour aroma. Some earthiness from the wood leaves subtle vanilla hints. The cherries go well with the wheat and brett, and the horsehair/sour combination is a winner.

The taste is wonderful with tart cherries, wheat, and funky brett. Apples, cherry skin, oak, vanilla, and wheat make an intricate and balanced splash on my palate. Not too sour, and the wheat from the Dreamweaver Wheat beer that was used as a base is still a component. The barrels are all virgin barrels made of Pennsylvania oak, and the newness of the wood has some tannin qualities. The cherries are ripe and juicy and add a lot to this beer. Very complex and divine.

The mouthfeel is lively and well carbonated. The beer is light-bodied but packed with flavor. This beer is just 4% ABV, so it's imminently drinkable. Just a fantastic American Wild from Troegs. To have nailed this beer on the first shot shows some real mastery or ninja skills. Either way, this was the best American Wild I've had in a long time and runs circles around beers that have way more brash flavor with no real underlying consistency. Thanks to Chris for bringing out these amazing beers, this was the best event of the 2010 Cleveland Beer Week so far. Highly, highly recommended.

Bottle shared by Chaney. Thanks Brandon!

A: The beer appears a hazy pink rose hue with a nice, thick head. The carbonation is high, giving the beer a sound reminiscent of pop rocks. Snap crackle pop!

S: Tart cherries, brettanomyces, oak - funky and wild.

T: Really funky cherry sour, similar in some regards to Lou Pepe kriek. Wonderful and delicious.The wheat aspect comes through nicely, giving the beer a different feel than a traditional fruit lambic. Very well done.

M: Very tart with high carbonation. The beer is acidic but not vinegary.

D: This awesome beer gets my stamp of approval and is worthy of attention. I'm very grateful for the opportunity to have sampled it.

750 ml cork and caged bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.

Chaney, you're one generous MFer!

A - Splinter Blue pours a hazy apricot orange color with a fizzy off white head that disappears quickly due to the beers acidity.

S - Woody acidic barnyard sourness erupts from this beer with an orgasmic aroma! Light tart fruitiness trails behind with very tannic cherry skin and little hops or malt to ground it as a "beer".

T - Light blueberry and faint raspberry fruitiness trail behind the funky acidic sour power that is Splinter Blue! Barnyard and acid isn't overpowering, instead, it compliments the fruit. "Beer qualities" (i.e. typical malt and hop flavors) are absent.

M - Prickly carbonation dances on the tongue while the sourness and acidity of the beer grip the taste buds with gentle force. Light-bodied and smooth, this drinks like a dream.

O - Splinter Blue is a great American Wild that marries fruit and sour without getting too big with either. Delicious and drinkable, this sour power is a fantastic offering from the Tröegs brothers!

Courtesy of MordorMongo, thanks Scott!

This beer pours a light bodied dark strawberry gold in color with a highly carbonated one finger white head. The nose is fruity and tart. It has some tart strawberry and blueberry. It is beyond approachable. The tartness and funk intermingled perfectly with the fruit character. The flavors are a mix of dry and funky Blueberry and strawberry sours with light brett. It's dry, earthy, funky. It's also a bit floral. I love it! It drinks very light with a lot of carbonation. It's very effervescent. This beer is superb, all around superb. The fiance loved it too. It was very unique and very good simultaneously. If this is ever available again I'm definitely going to search it out.

750mL corked & caged bottle poured into a tulip. Crazy thanks to Andy for sharing! Never thought I would get a chance to try this one.

(A)- Pours a hazy rose-blush color that produced some white froth that dissipated quickly. Minimal lace.

(S)- A super dry by oaky tartness surrounded with hints of berry -like fruits. Ever so slightly funky.

(T)- Similar to the smell, though far more sourness than expected. Really nice dry oaky bits in there that meshes quite nicely with the berry (raspberry, strawberry, blueberry) fruits.

(M)- A really nice bubbly carbonation level. Balance is real good too with the sour, oak, and fruits. Harmonious is really the best word I can use here.

(O)- This is just plain nice. A lovely balance of oak, fruit, and sour that just helps it be that much more drinkable . Very well done!

From 11/05/10 notes. Had at a small tasting thanks to Chaney; huge thanks Brandon, I was really excited to try this one!

a - Pours an orange amber color with one inch of fluffy white head and light carbonation evident. Very loud from the yeast, sounds like pop rocks in your mouth.

s - Smells of sour cherry, dark fruit, yeast, brett, and oak. Pretty funky and enjoyable.

t - Tastes of sour fruit, especially tart cherries, yeast, oak, and brett. Again very funky and I really enjoyed it.

m - Light to medium body and low carbonation, insanely smooth and easy to drink. Perfect mouthfeel.

d - I thought this was a great wild ale. I thought the smell and taste were very funky and full of tart cherries and oak. I also thought the mouthfeel was perfect. Would love to try this one again.

Shared by the very generous Habmike at yet another dirty south mediocre tasting.

Appearance: Rich and vibrant raspberry-purple color; smallish white head

Smell: Tart cherries with a lactic sourness. There are also some other berry-type fruits and a delicious funkiness of the earth, mushroom and horse blanket variety (not the diaper and plastic variety).

Taste: loud and brash sour cherries, delicious funk (such a great funk, some american brewers bring the wrong funk) with a nice cheese element and earthy tones, along with vinegar and fruit. I got a background note of vanilla and french oak.

Mouthfeel: medium body with aggressive carbonation

Drinkable: Please sir, may I have another? I really enjoyed this one, one of the highlights of the night - blew Russian River Framboise For a Cure out of the water (FFaC was the beer we opened before the Blue)

lots of fruit at first, raspberries, touches of sour apple tartness, rich with a mild sweetness that starts to billow up, light woody notes and a hint of grapes now as well hint at a barrel in its past a nice sour bite right out in front, really impressive here. Vinegar and tart cherries,raspberries seamlessly woven in with a nice woody, earthy note. vanilla and light brown sugar underneath as well, Hints of a mild sweetness come through mid palate, again rich, complex. Dry finish, puckering with the last drops of sour

Big thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this rare gem. Very glad I got to try this one.

The beer pours an orangish-pink color with a white head. The aroma is awesome. I get a lot of brett notes, but also get some tart lemon and cherries. There is also a nice amount of oak in the aroma.

The flavor is even better than the aroma. There is a lot of brett funk along with a light to medium sourness from the lemons and cherries. The oak is also present in the flavor. I found the beer to be relatively sour and it finished very dry. The beer is highly drinkable.

Medium mouthfeel and medium to high carbonation. Outstanding overall.

Shared with a few locals at a tasting and courtesy of the always awesome Alex....thanks buddy!

Lively light orangish pink pour with a short lived head that settles to a still surface. Tight stream of steady bubbles fire from center of the glass. Appealing to the eye.

Nicely tannic, peaches, lemon, and cherry up front. Light Brett funk is subtle. Everything seems in harmony. I kept my beak perched atop the glass for quite some time.

Smooth, tight, and dry. Sour peach and cherry with a medium level acidity. The blending and aging work extremely well here. Cherry really emerges as the beer warms. Thankfully, the Brett takes a back seat here, which is solid since he can be a fickle fuck. Finish is dry and crisp.

Effervescent and inviting, Splinter Blue is a really enjoyable and well executed Wild Ale. Cheers to Troegs for this treat.

A - It pours with a small amount of white head that fizzes out pretty quickly leaving a small ring. The beer is a ruby red grapefruit color, that is clear with visible carbonation.

S - The aroma has strong wood notes with light vanilla. The lactic sourness is also present, but in a more subtle amount. There are also notes of sour cherries.

M - Light in body with sharp, active carbonation that tingles the tongue.

T - Sour cherries are up front. Next up is a woody character that is present through the finish. In the finish is a light-medium lactic sourness, some funkiness, and doughy malt.

An excellent addition to the Splinter Series. The wild yeast, cherries, and oak combine to form a delicious concoction.

S- The smell of Cherries and Brett yeast and notes of a champagne sour.

T- Taste of Apples and Cherries and a cereal bread dough taste at the end of the sip.

M- Very Dry bubbly to the pallet with cherries and apples and bread dough lingering through out the sip.

D- Shame only 400 bottles made but the beer was a treat to drink along with some Chimay cheese. Those who were lucky to get a bottle or two. Enjoy.

Review from notes. Consumed at the Moo Bar.

A: Pours a hazy golden color with a egg-shell white head, about 1.5 fingers in height. The head fizzles out rather quickly, leaving behind a thin cap on top. Spotty lacing.

S: Lots of sour/tart cherries mixed with some other light fruits - lemon, apple, and a little pear. Nice funky/barnyard notes come through as well.

T: Similar to the aroma in that the sour cherries dominate and show up immediately. More apple and lemon with some bready malt rounding it out. The brett imparts some slight funk.

M: Medium bodied, nice and tart/acidic. Carbonation is a touch high, but I didn't really have a problem with it.

O: I am a fan of this beer, nice cherry flavor along with a great level of funk/tart. Too bad I will probably never have it again as it is tremendous.

Thanks to hopdog for providing this!

Appears a light gold with a small white cap that quickly fizzles out into a gentle film and mild collar. Spotty bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of funky, tart cherries, earthy, leather, apple, brett, with a ghost of the original wheat beer.
Taste is of the aromas with the tart cherries, and brett becoming the champions of this beer.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, tart, a touch of lactic burn leading to a dry finish.
Pretty damn nice!

Another Splinter that I have had multiple encounters with but have yet sit and pound out a review for.

A-Golden kissed copper with lustrous orange highlights. A voluminous pinkish tinted off-white head quickly dissipates to a thin cap and leaves attractive swaths of lace.

S-Sweet cherry, sharp brett mustiness and dry oak. Almost comes across to me as a dessert with light hints of vanilla in the background adding to the complexity.

T-Prominent dry Brett bite up front which is nicely balanced by the vanilla/cherry sweetness combination. Tart, but not overly sour. A nice acidic zing in the drying finish.

M-Medium bodied quite sharp and effervescent with a good lingering tartness.

D-This one just does it for me. The brett, fruit and oak combination are just about perfectly blended resulting in an infinitely complex, light, bright and crisp brew. Absolutely enjoyable!

Bottle Explodes on opening. A true gusher. Pours a hazy almost pinkish orange. A Touch of white head that dissipates immediately. Smells sweet and fruity. Peach perhaps? A nice subtle tartness on the nose and tongue. vanilla, oak, and tart fruity sourness. Smooth on the tongue. Great mouthfeel.

Last month, I drove 2 hours, waited in line for 4 hours +, and came damn near close to being late for work back in DC. Fast forward a little over a month: The guys seemed pretty stoked to try this beer and it was my pleasure to bring this to a fantastic tasting!

A: Pours a clouding pink/orange/salmon color, bubbly, and a good bit of head that quickly dissipated. Someone at the tasting mentioned that if you put your ear up to the glass, you can hear a snap or pop sound that resembles pop rocks. Cool!

S: Wheaty, sour cherry, with Brett very evident from the get-go. All of these ingredients are very soft in nature and don't bury the nose in too much sourness.

T: Sour fruit upfront, with wheat ("Dreamweaver") that washes over the Brett creating a kind of "sour-dough" quality that is unique and just plain awesome!

M: Not vinegary in any way, the doughy bread-like flair combined with the bubbly carbonation is comfortable to say the least, and the acidity is there but blended well into the ingredients.

D: To say this is highly drinkable almost brings me to tears. Since the odds of me ever trying this beer ever again are slim (only 400 bottles made), I will just leave it at, "Unfortunately, this stuff is very drinkable...."
