BELGIAN NUT BROWN MILD | 4% ABV
Brouwerij Omer Vander Ghinste (Bellegem, Belgium) | Fuller’s (London, the UK)
RADON is a Belgian Nut Brown Mild of 4% ABV, brewed in collaboration with Brouwerij Omer Vander Ghinste from Bellegem and Fuller’s from London in the UK.
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 Sam Quartier of Omer Vander Ghinste and Henry Kirk from Fuller’s in the UK.
RADON is a dark, low-gravity, malt-focused British session ale; refreshing, subtle and flavourful. The various malts deployed—Golden Promise, Light Crystal, English Brown Malt, Special B, Chocolate Wheat and Oats—equip the beer with a wide range of subtle dark malt expression: think caramel, toffee, toast, nutty, chocolate, coffee, roast and liquorice. The English Ale yeast strain delivers some subtle ester profile, reminiscent of plum and raisin.
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.
Radon is incredibly rare. When used in decorative lights, it is noted for its underappreciated beauty.
RADON 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.
