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)."

hawthorne00 (3414) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2016 Bottle, 13C. Deep gold with a large head that turns white. Aroma of honeyed hay, nectarines, oranges, slightly medicinal spices and smoke. Light to medium bodied. Seems a bit too fizzy. The peat is subtle in the aroma but more intrusive and a bit burnt plasticy upon a first swig. But the nectarines, hay, oranges and spices come through well enough and soon the beer is refreshing. After a while it’s almost as though the overcoming of the smoked flavours by them is the point of the beer. I suppose that would fit the story. [edit: got this and drank again within the week, which must bump the overall score]

aleigator (724) - GERMANY - JUN 6, 2016
Pours a clean amber color, with a huge, froth head. Smells of herbal wild honey, toffee and grass. Offers a flowery wooden note on top, which derives a smoky quality from the malts. Has a soft mouthfeel, with a bubbly, effervescent finish, revealing a sweet, malt defined ending among a refreshing body. Tastes of sweet honey, toffee malts, old wood and smoky, earthen malts, washed away by a mineralic quality. A honey coated dryness comes up from the back end of the palate, together with more malts, grass and stony minerals. Finishes spicy with a prominent inclusion of cloves, pepper and coriander. Sweeter than expected, with a slight, late dryness, revealing a very interesting smoky twist, amped up by a refreshing, soft carbonation level.
