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)."

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)

Aroma 2. Appearance 2. Taste 5. Palate 3. Overall 8. Smocked aroma and taste, something like whisky. Too high astringency level.

Bottle of Triomf from Carrefour City Supermarket, Brussels, Belgium. Hazy golden coloured with a thick white head. It has a malty, toffee and smoked beechwood flavour followed by fruit and gentle smoked earthy notes on the smooth finish. Not bad.

330ml bottle (KwakInn, Riga) (6+:4:6-:3:12=3.1)
Honey, small head. Peaty tarry aroma. Taste has some almost poopy elements, but that's because of the peat, I'm sure. Some liver-like aspects too. Finish is pure black tea, massively tanniny. Pu-erh, even. Didn't mellow with the sediment added, even in small quantities.

Bottle from a Carrefour in Bruges. Pours hazy golden with a big, foamy, white head. In the smell, there’s bread, herbs and smoke. In the mouth, the aroma contains hops, spices, yeast, barley, grass, bread, some banana and iron. It tastes light sweet and medium herbal bitter with a short, hoppy, dry, slightly metallic finish. Medium body, slick/watery texture, lively carbonation. Not sure about this one. It’s positively complex, yet whilst tasting I’m getting more of the ’organic’ basis of malt whisky than actual peatiness. So in terms of taste it’s very much an organic beer, which I can’t fully appreciate. I enjoyed it for a while but a sample would have sufficed.

Discreta smoked con affumicatura leggera. Sia al naso che al palato � leggermente amara e speziata.

ardeo (547) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2017
Orange trouble en 33 cl avec petite mousse. Le nez est sur la levure, les houblons, l’orange, l’abricot, le pain, légèrement fumé. La bouche est fraîche, gouleyante sur le biscuit et le fruit (orange, banane). Peu d’amertume ! Une "smoked" qui ne goûte pas le cochon fumé ! Je ne suis pas sûr que j’aie bu la même bière que les "rateer" qui me précèdent !

Bottle from Bacchanalia, drunk at home. Orange/brown, cloudy. Very little head but a fair bit of carbonation is visible. Floral and raspberry notes sit on top of heavily peated whisky in the aroma. Taste is smoky but very dry with a sharp hop bitterness leading to the finish. Astringency in the finish is a bit too much for me, but I must admit it does round off the beer nicely. Heavy carbonation. A tasty and original recipe.
