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 .

Bontus (741) - 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.

Nice fruit aroma with a cloudy golden pour. The taste was sharp and full of fruit and spice. Lasting crispness that finished dry and full. Good Saison

Bottle from Valley Wine in Davis, CA. This brew is the champagne of beers. It was the fullest Saison I’ve tasted with sweet flavors of citrus and flowers. There was slight spice and some hops to it. Overall, I was very impressed, even though it’s not my favorite style.

On tap at Hop Leaf in Chicago. I drank this during a dinner with Graham, Tara and John during my first vacation. Dupont Avec les Bons Voeux is a very good strong saison. The color is a clear yellow with a thin and quickly disappearing head. The aroma is sweet with natural fruit notes rather than the sugary notes I am used to tasting in a saison. I believe the high alcohol level is responsible for the difference. The finish is very nice and wet yet light and enjoyable.

BeerViking (3844) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2008
75cl bottle, from 2be in Bruges. Has a wired-on champagne cork, still with some sediment though, unlike a champagne. Deep gold in colour with a big white head and crisp, slightly peppery and fruity aroma. The flavour is then a rich and spicey/hoppy bitterness with hints of citrus and a full bosy. Lovely.

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.

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.
