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.

batch 1! Nice carbonation and fairly dry. Lots of oak in smell and taste. This is probably 6 years old or so by now. It is slightly one dimensional and not very complex, but it is still good beer.

Bottle batch 2, aroma is heavy acetone and oak. Taste is thick and funky with a dry heavy oak finish. Tried a second day, heavy wood and nail polish still there

i didnt love this one as much as others. its heavy on the wine barrel characteristics, which is almost a fruity double jeopardy with the belgian yeast, and the wild yeast, which is mostly brett from what i gather, doesnt make nearly as much of an impact as i was hoping for. still, the beer is good, almost like a tripel in its yeast and body, and in that its sweet all the way through it an unapologetic for that. carbonation is awesome, its very alive, and the wood on it is enormous. im not sure the wine barrel was the best choice though, neutral oak may have been more appealing, but the fruitiness is pleasant too. slightly tart and tannic, but never sharp. it also doesnt need to be so strong. i might have like this better around 8% abv, the extra booze does little for the beer and is distracting in some contexts. it improves as it warms though, and the funk comes out a bit more. this is fun beer, but i expected a lot more from it honestly.
