COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bons Vœux (Good Wishes) is a blond high fermentation beer , re-fermented in the bottle. Founded in 1970 , this beer was offered earlier this year to the most loyal customers of our brewery ( hence the name "With the best wishes of the brewery Dupont "). The success this beer earned lead to it being made commercially, while retaining its original name. Although very popular, it was brewed in limited quantities, the bottles reserved many months in advance. A coppery blond beer with aromas of hops for the Bon Voeux is a beer tasting combining mellow bitterness and fruity. Our selection of yeasts and a long maturation phase with hopping gives it flavor and a characteristic and complex taste. The true fermentation in the bottle , which can be extended very long in your cellar, resulting in a balanced and harmonious beer, surprising and complex aromas .

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2009 750ml bottle courtesy of me. Nice pop off the cork. Poured into a snifter. Muddy orange in color, big frosty white head. Aroma of yeast, spices and a earthy tone. Taste is a sweet, dry, touch of spices, yeasty and a little earthy. Funky sourness...9.5 percent really? Super smooth, perfect example of what a saison should taste like. Great beer.

Borresteijn (6048) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2008
37,5cl Bottle. Cloudy golden colour, lasting white head. Fruity aroma with notes of yeast, spices, a hint of sourness. Flavour is spicy, yeast, sweet and sour fruits, with a good bitter finish. Rich, smooth mouthfeel, slightly dry. Really good stuff.

popery (1850) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Healthily funky farmhouse that stops just short of horse blanket. Emphasized saison characteristics. Dusky gold and a nice head but not particularly exciting appearance for a saison. Some undisguised alcohol notes. Lemons, perfume, herbs, cinnamon, bitter nutmeg notes. Full, round feel. A strong, refined and rustic saison.

asedzie (784) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours straw golden with thick white head. Aroma has grain, very light horse blanket, light funk, slight citrus- orange peel. Flavor is a little dry, with very subtle sweetness upfront followed by a strong wave of bitter, herbal hops. Earthy tones discernible beneath. Round, champagne-like mouthfeel. Light bitterness lingers long into the finish. Very memorable.

Dogbrick (10740) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Sample at Christmas Ales & A Christmas Story at Studio 35 on 12/7/08: The brew pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a medium frothy white head that recedes slowly. Aroma of yeast, pepper and floral hops. Medium body with flavors of yeast, sour apples and floral hops. Taste of cloves here and there too. The finish is yeasty with notes of pepper and raw alcohol left over. Pretty good overall.

The rare blonde winter holiday ale, this was slightly effervescent and lightly tasting with hints of fruit and citrus.
