3fourths (8344) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle. Clear orange with a sticky white head. Aroma impression is strongly kilned and toasty amber malt, minerals / oyster shell and earthy peat smoke. Medium body and effervescent, up front it’s semi-sweet and salty and brine-like, naturally peaty and smoky and lasting in the mouth with prickly and invigorating carbonic acid and airy malt sugar. Succulent pastry amber and red malts with a robust earthy, petroleum like peatiness that speaks to Islay whiskey malts, delivered dry and bubbly as Dupont does so well.

nealblind (965) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Amber orange pour huge rocky head. Aroma smoke, bandaids, slight tang. Tastes hickory smoke, bready, slight brine, slight peppery fire in my throat. dry finish. Very smokey I like.

notalush (5124) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Tap at Trappe Door in Greenville, SC - a smoked beer from Dupont - sign me up! - hazy dark gold - fluffy head - nose has mostly scotch character - strong smoke and earthy peat, but also some booze and oak - creamy, soft texture -flavor is moderately sweet - much like the aroma, the flavor has a strong scotch character - a lot of peat and smoke - some wine-like character, perhaps from the oak and subtle alcohol - finish is a little watery and sweet - interesting - you really need to like scotch to enjoy this - I was expecting more, but I’m still enjoying it and I’m glad I got to try it.

erickok (3967) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 24, 2015
Golden body, cloudy, dense head. Lightly smoked, golden malts, great yeast (I like to pour it all in), hay. Really nice mouth feel, smooth yet fresh too. Medium bitter, unique smoked feel for a Belgian ale. Must be the only smoked saison I have had. And really nice, kind of brew. (75cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Hamirubi (101) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2015
On tap at Café Vooruit in Ghent, but great from 75 cl bottle too. Good to drink, very fresh with citrus hints. Small foam, hazy amber beer.

NikkTwist (1812) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Draft at Khyber Pass. Cloudy orange pour with lots of wet lace. Burnt oranges. Interesting smoke element but not nearly as complex as I would have hoped for something coming out of DuPont.

fkoolen (419) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015

thornecb (4640) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Pours deep gold into a shaker. White head with excellent tophats and recedes leaving gloppy lacing. Dusty chocolate and smoke aromas. Crisp with caramel, smoke and mild band aids front to back. Dry, medium length finish.

Suttree (5317) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Murky brown, huge white head. Smells lightly smoky, slightly grassy. Subtle, but nice. Taste is mostly winey, with hints of smoke. Some subtle funky notes. Interesting brew. I’d buy this again...

Bontus (654) - Flanders, BELGIUM - JAN 27, 2015
On tap and from the (75cl) bottle @ Café Vooruit. Pours hazy amber (the bottle version was more hazy). Nose of coriander & banana. Aroma of honey, wheat & marmelade. With a faint exotic hop note. Very easily drinkable but a bit cloying on the palate after one or two.
