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)."

mathieuc (2655) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2016
Pours a fairly hazy golden with a high cream-colored head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of toasted wheat and light to moderate smoke. Taste is featuring more cereals and is only lghtly sweet and moderately bitter. Smoke is not in your face and I believe it is the right way to do it in these kind of brews. Light husky cereals. Body is medium and carbonation moderately high (bottle opened up with a loud and satisfying pop). Overall a really nice rustic/old time ale reproduction by Dupont, I’m starting to think these guys can do nothing wrong!

tom10101 (4525) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle (750 ml). Split 2-ways. Hazy-cloudy orangey-amber with a frothy off-white head, decent retention, leaving little lacing. Aroma is peaty with some minerality, fruity notes (similar to grains non completely fermented yet it doesn’t seem to be that), mild caramel and yeasty notes (but not usual Dupont yeast). Taste is moderately peaty and mild wheat-y acidic with caramel notes, mild spiciness and hints of mineral bitterness. Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Mild peaty finish with some yeast. It’s an interesting experiment but it’s not Dupont-ish enough. Balanced isn’t bad though.

psilosophy (613) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - DEC 28, 2015
Bouteille de 75cl. Couleur ambrée, mousse abondante, belle tenue. Assez surprenante avec des arômes de foin et une certaine fumure. Goût très typé qui ne plaira peut être pas au palais néophyte. Carbonnation moyenne/. Trouvée à la Brasserie Delneste - Froidmont.
