Founders Announces Beer for ArtPrize 2015: Spectra Trifecta
This year's beer will be brewed in the traditional Kolsch style and is called Spectra Trifecta.
Beer Advocate describes Kolsch style beer: "Light to medium in body with a very pale color, hop bitterness is medium to slightly assertive. A somewhat vinous (grape-y from malts) and dry flavor make up the rest."
Founders describes Spectra Trifecta as a bright, golden beer. It uses a "trifecta of natural ingredients: earthy, floral and slightly sweet chamomile; a touch of citrusy lemongrass; and a hint of spicy fresh ginger."
Spectra Trifecta is 5.9% ABV and 20 IBUs.
The label art was made by Alexis Brooke, a Grand Rapids native and an employee of Founders. It was made with markers, ink and watercolors.
Spectra Trifecta will be made available for a limited time beginning Sunday, September 13, in Michigan, Wisconsin, New York City and Chicago.
