sprøng is a blend of mature wild ales, aged in oak puncheons (400 and 500L) for around 1,5 up to 3 years, and a barrel fermented and aged saison type of beer, which was dryhopped for a few months with Saaz hops. We’ve added Sicilian sage and also wormwood (artemisia absinthium and another secret variety) to the final blend to macerate a week before bottling. It’s a subtle addition we made compared to sprong, to add a slightly earthiness and spice to it.
 
sprøng is perfect to be enjoyed right away, but might benefit from some months of aging in the bottle, so it’s perfect to be enjoyed during the holidays. Ageing will balance out the flavours and will give space for more subtle nuances in aroma and taste. I might note that it will be interesting to observe the interplay of the herbs, hops, and yeast-profile throughout the ageing-process.
