As I was not at work today, I was unable to go down... I suspect it will be gone Monday, but that said, I'm too broke as it is
SPLINTER BLUE RELEASE DATE ANNOUNCED! Splinter Blue will be available at Troegs Brewery on Thursday, September 16 at 10 a.m. There is a two-bottle limit per person, and the price is $22.95 for a 750 ml bottle. We have approximately 400 bottles available for sale.
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. Splinter Blue pours a cloudy rose color with copious carbonation and a Brettanyomyces yeast funk.
The beer's effervescence highlights its sharp acidic cherry flavor, followed by a doughy cereal-like finish that lets you know there's wheat in there.
