Trillium Brewing Company’s Sprang

Trillium Brewing Company Sprang

Pilner’s aren’t usually my thing. But I like Kölsch and this one is excellent. I could easily picture myself hovering over a grill while downing a few of these.

  • Beer: Sprang
  • Style: Kölsch
  • Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.9%
  • IBU: 0
  • My rating: 4.25/5
  • Brewer’s notes: Originally brewed as our hoppy welcome to Spring after the long, dark months of winter, this low ABV, kölsch inspired ale is cool fermented and dosed with Nelson Sauvin. Lower fermentation temperature slows the yeast’s metabolism and provides balance by gently subduing super-fruity esters and spicy phenols. Sprang is refreshingly light bodied with aromatics of earthy evergreen, passion fruit, and faint doughy malt. Flavors of concord grape, mango, and herbaceous white wine interweave with cracker-crisp, pilsner malt character and minimal bitterness. The finish is dry with a lasting touch of grain.
