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)."

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 (633) - 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.

Me encantó, cerveza sin filtrar, turbia, color oro viejo. Arómática pero discreta. Toque ahumado sin ser exagerado.

mR_fr0g (14242) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2017
Bottle shared at Cotteridge convention 05/03/2016. Thanks to Scopey. Aroma is earthy apple, bready grains and mellow smoke. A translucent golden orange coloured pour with a big rocky froth. Flavour is composed of clea biscuity cereal grains, saison yeast, earthy. Palate is grainy, moderate carbonation, Good.

Syfher (523) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2017
Bottle of 33cl, in a Tulip glass; from the fridge. This dark-orange beer with whisky malt in it is a real success : good beer with a powerful aroma and "whisky" taste is really a plus. Drink it if you are looking for a new twist in a beer.

hallinghansen (3488) - Odense SV, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2017
