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)."

MartinT (9590) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Beautifully bready aromas pervade this brews cushy cereals, while subtle smoke latches on to herbal hoppiness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the hazy amber.
-You can recognize the Dupont yeast signature all over this one.
-The smoke is subtle enough not to bother those who dont like smoked beers.
-The natural effervescence helps build a comfortable mouthfeel.

Le liquide est orang et bien voil. La mousse qui se forme au service est dabord monstrueuse puis se rsorbe trs rapidement pour noffrir quune fine couche blanche qui me suut tout au long de mon parcours. Armes o la fume est bien balance aux levures belges inhabituelles pour la brasserie. Aucune crale perceptible. Ppur tre franc, cette bire prsente un ct plutt artificiel. Aicune effervescence, fume modre de bois mais pas de malts. In got de mas?

Silvan7 (1175) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 31, 2016
Bottle @ home. Giallo ambrato scarico, velato, con schiuma bianco sporco, fine non molto persistente. Aroma intenso, torbato, affumicato, malto, (frumento), speziato di pepe ed erbaceo da luppolo. Gusto abboccato, maltato, acidulo per via dellaffumicato, non molto amaro. Non molto corposa, carbonatazione intensa, spigolosa, non troppo calda, ma equilibrata ed armonica.

DandyWolfFloyd (1200) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2016
Aroma - is a combination of hard textured junior high bathroom hand towels and sweet pork. Appearance - the body is a honeyed amber with rocketing nucleation. The head is off-white an over 2+", and fades slowly into a rocky fluff mound. He said fluff mound. Lacing abounds. I said, lacing is abounding, its everywhere foam can be. Froth hog! Taste - has some subtle smoke at the rear of the throat. The front end sort of tastes like if you had a tongue depresser from the medicine bag of WWII colonel sit on your tongue and really had to taste it. Weird, yet enjoyable - like, "Hey doc, is that some kind of weird wood - or what in the fuck. I just have to know." Palate - medium body, flat and wide texture, average carbonation, finish is wool and medicinal.

I was surprised how well smoked malt chained with Belgian yeast. Nothing too complex, rather drinkability driven brew. But enjoyable and pleasant. Malty, medium bodied, poured with small off-white soapy top.

Cristobal37 (883) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 9, 2016
Hazy honey gold with ample head. Funky yeast aroma. Very very mild smoke on a bubbily light beer. Palate is smoked malt very nice. Reminds me of the Easter beer from Schlenkerla, as mild yet still characteristically smoked as possible. Really good and quite different from Dupont.
