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 .

Meaty aroma, yeast bomb. Yellow golden with a thick white fluffy head. Flavor is bananas, light fruits. Breast yeast, some zesty undertones. Alcohol present, bitter caboose. Good, but not my favorite saison.

Best beer of Belgium for 2007. Rich and with the flavors of natural strong beer. Has the power of a trappist and the elegance of a flemish triple.

great when fresh......light bret aroma....very nice body and tastes...well like a saison...but more so....everything is bigger...almost like an imperial saison.....maybe that should be a new style guideline?

2005 bottle. pours a clear gold until the yeast bomb drops. it’s topped with a wispy white head that sticks a little to the glass. this smells like the inside of a barn... straw, dried hay, light funk, lemon, a little yeast and pepper. the palate starts lightly caramel sweet and yeasty then gets dry and bitter. dried spices/herbs, pepper, a little funk, lemon and a bit of alcohol on the finish. yeasty fruity aftertaste. there’s something very candy like in the flavor which puts me off... a bit too sweet. (i’ll give the remaining bottles a few years to fix and this will be stellar) medium bodied with a soft mouth feel and prickly carbonation...

Eh però che robe la migliore Dupont assaggiata; divisa in due all’Exultate per festeggiare l’esame di Storia Romana. Fantastica; ora sono stanco la descriverò l’anno prossimo.

DSG (8665) - Tel Aviv, - APR 1, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2014 (3/5/08) Draught at Kulminator in Antwerp. Cloudy orange with a quickly-disappearing white head. Fruity, moderately spicy aroma with some hops and some yeast. Flavor is a bit sweetish at first, then turns spicy with a bit of yeast and towards the end joins a strong hoppy bitterness. Medium-bodied. Very good, but not great.

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.......
