BLOOD ORANGE WEISSBIER | 7% ABV
Brouwerij Contreras (Gavere, Belgium) | White Frontier Brewery (Martigny, Switzerland)
KRYPTON is a Blood Orange Weissbier of 6% ABV, brewed in collaboration with Brouwerij Contreras of Gavere and White Frontier Brewery from the Swiss Alps.
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 Frederik De Vrieze of Contreras and Chris Treanor of White Frontier.
KRYPTON is a classic German Weissbier—with its banana and clove fermentation character and refreshing wheat flavours—enhanced with the addition of blood orange juice for a fruity, bitter and refreshing twist.
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.
Greek for "hidden one", Krypton gas is a brilliant white light source in photographic flashes for high speed photography.
KRYPTON 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.
