COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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)."

floydian1 (1346) - FNQ, Australia, - AUG 26, 2016
750ml bottle from Beer Cartel, Sydney. Cloudy bright orange with a decent stable white head. It’s got the benchmark Saison DuPont yeasty aromas with subtle added peaty smoky notes. Taste is dry, spicy and bittersweet with smoky notes at the finish which are not overpowering. Medium bodied palate with a spritely mouthfeel. I prefer the original but this is still worth trying.

McNeillR (2210) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2016
Stern clear golden, soft white ringed head. Nose is greasy, lemon and syruppy - no real smoke. Initial taste is rich malty, earthy and bread crust. Carbonation is soft enough, mouthfeel a bit cloying. Finishes gritty melon and lemon, lingers oddly peppery and fairly yeasty - again no real smoke.
