WHEAT PEACH SOUR | 5% ABV
Brasserie de Blaugies (Blaugies, Belgium) | Tempel Brygghus (Uppsala, Sweden)
HELIUM is a Wheat Peach Sour of 5% ABV, brewed in collaboration with Brasserie de Blaugies of Belgium and Tempel Brygghus from Uppsala in Sweden.
It is part of a special six-pack of beers—the Noble Gas Project—created with twelve other breweries to celebrate the third birthday of Siphon Brewing.
Working with Siphon Brewing on the recipe and process beforehand and attending on brewday were Pierre-Alex Carlier from Brasserie de Blaugies and Arvid Landgren from Sweden’s Tempel.
HELIUM is a sour (pH 3.2), dry (fully attentuated) and fruity (lemon & peach) beer which has been kettle soured by various strains of lactobacillus, including the natural cultures existing in the malted barley grains which are added to the kettle during the acidification process. The addition of peach purée delivers a further fermentation and a soft fruit profile and the selection of a characterful Belgian ale yeast gives both citrus esters and a peppery spice.
In the right hands, the six noble gases are a powerful source of light, bringing illumination and colour to people's lives.
We want The Noble Gas Project to shine a light on the values that make us excited about beer: Belgian tradition, international influence, collaborative learning and being unafraid.
Named for Helios, the Greek Titan of the sun, Helium is often used by artists all over the world as expressive special purpose lighting.
HELIUM will be available to try for the first time, on draught, at the third birthday party of Siphon Brewing and thereafter in limited quantities through the regular partners of the brewery.
