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 .

Deep orange pour with a thick bubbly white head. Spicy coriander aroma. Similar bitter spicy flavor. Very smooth velvety texture. Not bad, but I was a bit disappointed.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2009
Orange-golden with a thick and creamy head. Sweet and very spicy aroma. The flavour is quite special: yeast, spice and sugar dominate it with notes of peper and pear.

Draft at Capone’s 12/13/08: Poured an orange color with a thick head. The aroma was flowers, grass, honey and orange. The flavor was tasty, with sweet and spicy orange peel, flowers, funk, and yeast. Overall, one of the best Saison’s I’ve ever had.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2009
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a very cloudy, glowing orange-amber color. A small, fading white head leaves a sudsy wash on the glass, most of which returns to the body. The aroma reminds me of a woman’s perfume, very floral and estery overall, with distinguishing notes of candied orange peel, lemon zest, clove, cracked pepper, and a heap of dry, bready, bretty yeast. Flavors are bright and zesty up front, citrus again featured prominently. Pale malts and candy sugar add ample sweetness, while spicy, peppery, floral hop notes and dry, farmhouse yeast add complimentary depth. Medium-full in body, with a fine, active carbonation, the palate finishes dry to the point of being parching, with lingering floral bitterness. Overall, this is a very fine saison, but it goes a bit over the top for me. Though I like this brew very much, I prefer the normal Saison Dupont for both everyday palatability and subtle complexity.

malrubius (2486) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 4, 2009
750 ml bottle in Duvel glass. Pale hazy orange with lasting white head and lace. Spicy lemon pastry aroma. Very fresh. Bready honey melon with strong spicy bittereness. Medium body (light for the abv) with effervescent carbo and nice mouthfeel. Very assertive, complex, refreshing, drinkable and strong. One the of the best beers, period. Big thanks to Stu at Shoreline Bev for the special order.

ChainGangGuy (4721) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Appearance: Hazy, copper-hued body with an inch of off-white foam. Smell: Aroma smelling of bright citrus, tangy wheat, spices, apple peelings, and a sweaty, floral hop character. I must say, the funkiness coursing through the nose is fairly restrained. Taste: Union of citrus, orange peel, and grassy florals. Tart and reasonably bitter even at the start. Some malted wheat, apple, and even flecks of sweet toffee begin to emerge midway. Hint of alcohol, a thoughtful reminder of the 9.5% contained within. Sip of still mineral water. Never more than a mild funk component. Some honey and sour lemon arrives late. Light touches of funk and sourness on the dry finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight stickiness. Drinkability: Displays tons of distinct flavors and subtle complexities, but for a winter seasonal, I find myself looking elsewhere and for a saison, well, I honestly prefer the standard Saison Dupont. But I certainly appreciate the "best wishes" from Brasserie Dupont (right back at’cha!).

750ml bottle. Great crisp flavor. Not too sweet. Some citrus and hop. Faint spicyness. The alcohol content is not apparent in the nose. Fantastic!

Bontus (742) - Flanders, BELGIUM - JAN 1, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2016 75cl bottle approx two years old, on occasion of new years eve. Pours hazy blonde with a thick foamy white head. Nose is like a dusty attic, chalk, cheese. Aroma of citrus and herbs. Flavorbalance good between sweet and sour. Very silky mouthfeel and alcoholcontent only noticeable as it warms. Good beer. Rerate 37,5cl bottle, 3 years old. Nice yeast trail in the bottle, sticky sediment, but nonetheless some floaties in the beer too. Awesome nose of white wine, grapes, fresh fruit and a slight oakiness. Bit alcoholic, low carbonation. A very good beer for aging.
