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)."

3fourths' rating

3fourths (9407) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 26, 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. Weird beer rules.

At Tim home light amber coloured body with a white head and with a smoked malt hops aroma a fruity sweet hops malt taste with a slight bitter finish

martpez (441) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2018
Lots of belgium yeast and a health head some sharp hop dryness in the finish and a hint of pleated whisky at the end. An easy going refreashing drink overall. Nice!

RexTalionis (3890) - FINLAND - DEC 9, 2017
Sample from bottle. Unclear golden in color with a whitish head. Mild smokyness, some fruityness as well. Interesting, quite refreshing combination. Smoky taste, some fruitynes here as well. Crisp finish.

Peat and roast, rotten fruit, of an apple variety, big head, a hint of vanilla at the end. Interessin, kinda like a rauchcider

erikaraeb (326) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2017
The smokiness of this caught me off guard - I was expecting a tripel - but it's good. Like a rauchbier but light. A bit of sweetness in the background with a light bod. Easy drinking for the smoked style.

Bière de collaboration avec le Vooruit de Gand, qui est une référence culturelle de la ville, et l'Ecosse … via le malt à whisky. A noter que l'on trouve aussi dans la composition du sirop de blé bio (mais pourquoi une telle aberration ?? … c'est complètement "vooruit" …). Niveau abv de 6 %. Mon exemplaire était à 5 mois après sa date. Couleur orangé clair, avec un tout léger voile. Bulles fines en fontaine centrale, nombreuses et vives. Mousse blanche, crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de whisky légèrement fumé, tourbé, pointe de câpres, girofle, pomme aigre. 1ère bouche très souple, sur un ensemble whisky tourbé/malt/fumée. Arrière-bouche assez dense, sur un ensemble malté plus équilibré. 2ème à la très belle texture, mais à l'ensemble très moyen, peu harmonieux. Arrière-bouche plus vague que la 1ère. La longueur est vraiment très monocorde, sans relief intéressant. Jambes fines, courtes, collantes. Levure d'une ligne correcte. Alcool qui ne contribue aucunement aux saveurs, sinon à la lassitude. Finale qui me laisse rêveur sur l'objectif de pareille bière !!! CONCLUSION : une bière dont le "triomphe" majeur aura été de faire perdre sa moyenne de 4 à la brasserie … Pour une analyse plus philosophique, vous pouvez vous reporter à la note de Jybi. (3/3/3/4/6)

Bottle. Hazy orange gold pour with fizzy white head. Aroma is malty, lightly smokey, iodine, peated notes, banana. Taste is smokey, almost saline peatiness, light fruitiness, yeasty. Palate is med bodied and fizzy. Meh.
