Brewed for Kunstencentrum Vooruit, celebrating their 100th anniversary.
Ingredients: water, barley malt, wheat syrup, hops, yeast. From the website (Google translate from French): "On the occasion of its 100th anniversary, the Kunstencentrum De Vooruit Ghent wished to remind the brewing activity he had had in the early 1900. In this context, the Brasserie Dupont was asked to create a beer based on their wishes. Given the success of this new beer at the event, it was decided to open production for all customers. * Organic beer, amber color, dry and bitter with a smoky note (specifically peat) in aroma and taste. This phenolic characteristic is obtained by using a small percentage of malt specially dried with Scottish peat (malt whiskey)."

Une bière originale qui combine à la fois les arômes de la levure Dupont à une coté fumé et épicé, la bouche est à la fois fraîche et opulente.

minutemat (2759) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2015
75cl bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, Aug 15. From Saveur-Biere. Pours deep hazy amber with white head. Smokey cow-dung nose. Hugely complex sweet funk and sour notes. Really not what I was expecting at all. Smokey peat element is definitely there.. but with a clean pilsnery element. Queer.

Nocturne (1273) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Tap at Vooruit, Gent. Hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma comes through smoky and fruity with some green apple flavour. Pretty similar taste with some band-aid notes also. The smoke is understated but fills it out. Almost too much carbonation. Pretty good effort to make this work.

Hugh (196) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2015
75cl bottle. A hazy amber beer with a lasting tight white head.Typical Dupont aroma, and flavour is turfy earthy Saison Dupont. Touch of whisky malt smokyness adds a layer to the flavour. Very good.

BlackHaddock (5085) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
19th Aug 2015: Cork and caged 0.75 litre bottle. Cheers Mat for sharing this at the August Shrewsbury bottle exchange. Five pours, the first three clear golden bodied, the last two slightly hazy, all five had a good white crown for a head. Peat bog and yeasty aroma with a semi-sour smouldering farmyard taste. Different and thought provoking, interesting beer with plenty going on. Not too sure I actually liked it though!
