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: MAR 24, 2008 ’05 Bottle: Courtesy of cmr1517, pours a murky yellow color with a medium-sized white head. Nose hints at grass, yeast, mild citrus tones, a bit of funk and cane sugar. Flavor follows suit, but in a dry sort of way. This is good stuff, but I wasn’t blown away.

Good beer. A little darker, denser, and richer than the Veille Provision, but not necesarily better. It does have a nice softness in the mouthfeel. Less dry than the Moinette or Foret. I have found some bottles of this beer to be superlative, but lately I have only found ones that were simply decent.

Bottle (750ml): Hazy, golden to orangey coloured; solid fruity and herbal-hoppy nose; robust sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; lingering bitter-sweet and fruity finish with tart, but mild aftertaste. Very fine Saison.......

MoritzF (8776) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2008
(75cl bottle) Cloudy, pale golden colour with a massive, slightly off-white and persistent foamy head. Light-sweet, vinous-fruity (mandarins) nose, slightly wheaty with distinctive spicy and herbal hoppy notes. Light-bitter flavour, full bodied with an extremely well-matured and mellow carbonation. Yeasty, slightly wheaty and fruity taste with early arriving spicy herbal hops, lingering into the lasting moderately bitter finish. Superb brew (12.03.08).

I’ve had bad luck with Saisons thus far, perhaps it isn’t the style for me. Dupont gave it a shot before, without success. Was it the smoky bar? My inexperience? I owed it to myself to give one of Belgium’s traditions another chance. After all, Belgian styles have never betrayed me, why should they start? Still, that impossibly dry mouthfeel and caustic carbonation didn’t sit right last time around. Nonsense! Here comes the pour. Les Voeux could hardly have started more beautifully. Golden as a mirabelle, its dense orange fog is set aglow by the light behind it. Pillowy, the dazzling white fluff laces lazily across the glass. A subtle aroma arises, light but fruity, and spicy too. Peach, apricot, nutmeg and some grain successively appear. The penetrating fragrance of Charentais melon plays jubilantly off of estery hints of bubble gum, banana and pineapple. Orange peel, clove and imperceptible coriander zest the concoction. In the background, a definite chalkiness and slightly sweet hint of funk are the hallmarks of authenticity. With renewed ambition, I take a confident sip. Funky – surprising and different – a dry cheesiness like a nutty Parmesan. Buttery hazelnut flavor is apparent throughout. The fruit is more subdued than I expected but despite copious alcohol none appears on the tongue. The frothy carbonation is pleasant, allowing for the sweetness of bubble gum and pineapple to really boogie. Finishing dry, a funky grainy thyme flavor leads to a somewhat salty aftertaste hinting at apricot. I am positively dying for a morsel of Parmigiano Reggiano, that addition alone would propel me to heaven. I’m glad I followed my instincts, Dupont has crafted a wonderful brew. (14/04/2007)

[sampled at Hopleaf, Chicago] Cloudy, golden yellow color. Fruity aroma, citric, almost kind of earthy. Flavors are strongly bitter, with loads of esters. Spicy and phenolic; very complex. Finishes with a wonderful dryness. Strong carbonation.

Not a preferred style of mine. Cloudy orange color with a light white head. Smell is funky and citris and strange. Flavor is average and bland and a bit sour. Overall, just okay. For the style, probably amazing - but I didn’t dig it.
