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 .

a step up from the basic saison dupont. nice citrusy flavor on top of the spice and earthiness typical of saisons ive had. nice sparkling character without being over carbonated. very enjoyable brew

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2011 Bottle, 75cl corked, at Københavnske Øldage. Unclear, golden-orange pour with a white head. Coriander, citrus, spices and wheat in the aroma. The flavor har wheat, lemon, coriander, orange peel and a little spice-like touch. A bit astringent in the mouth. Spiced, lemony, wheaty finish. Very refreshing, yet it lacks something to get a highet rating. Rating: 6-4-6-3-13-3.2 070512

Bottle, at Esbjerg Beerfestival. Finally rememberd to rerate this one. It’s sure much better than my first rating indicated. It pours a hazy, orange body under a dense, off-white head. Nice sourish nose with citrus, pale malts, some funk and a touch of white sugar. Lovely funky and lemony flavor with grassy hops, some dough, a spice notes and a fine bitterness. Medium to full body, dry and nicely carbonated. Bitter, sour and funky finish. A bit sugary in flavor and aroma, even though it’s a dry beer. Lovely. 091023

From a 75cl bottle. Amber colored beer, good lively carnation and very atractive white head. Aroma is malty, leafy, dry and interesting hoppy. Taste is signed Dupont, nice saison caracter, with a great dry malty structure and a crispy bitterness op hops. Alcohol is well hidden.

Københavnske Øldage 07. Bottle. Hazy, golden with a nice creamy head. The aroma is spicy with notes of citrus and a bit of malt. The flavour is sweet and malty, but then comes refreshing citrus along together with a nice, crisp hop-bite. Complex and very nice. 15/29

Nephilium (1309) - Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2007
2006 bottle. Pours a beautiful hazy light amber, with a big fluffy head. Standard saison aromas of earth, floral notes, and a touch of sweetness. Surprisingly sweet flavor, with crisp carbonation to cleanse the palate. Finishes with a touch of tartness. The alcohol content is not noticeable at all, which makes this very dangerous. Drop the ABV by about 5%, and this would be an excellent sessionable saison.

750ml. Bottle $9.99 Sam’s Downer’s Grove Cork reads "2006" Opened with a lot of "pop". Avec les Bons Voeux pours a beautiful slightly hazed golden that glows when held to the light. A big 3+ finger fluffy white head formed on the pour that receded to 2 fingers and became craggy and meringue like. Left thick drink lines. Very refreshing looking beer. When I popped the cork I took a quick smell and was immediately reminded of champagne. When in the glass this beer smells exceptionally polished. All notes go together so cleanly it’s difficult to pick them out. Mild floral aromas are present and mingle seamlessly with a faint haylike barnyard funkiness and candi sugar sweetness. Tart green apples come along too. Still shows champagne like qualities. This is the best saison I’ve ever expierenced by a long shot. Yes this beer is an expierence. Wonderfully done. Faint sugary sweetness along with a very mild funkiness go perfectly with the floral undertones. Green apple tartness gets in the mix as well. As this beer warms the green apple shows through more and more. Very refreshing. Light body with a solid amount of carbonation. Glides through the mouth very nicely. Leaves the tongue awakened. Finishes somewhat dry. I could, without a doubt, drink this beer all day long. Refreshing and light bodied. Very easy to drink. This is a world class beer and one of the best, most polished saisons I’ve ever had. Crisp and refreshing to the point of almost being too easy to drink, considering such a high abv. Wonderful creation. 3/17/07

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 24, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2007 Pours light golden with a mostly maintained foamy off-white head and an effervescent body. Aroma is wonderfully yeasty: notes of honey, bubble gum, barnyard, herbs, and pineapple esters. Taste is well balanced with both explosive esters and lightly bitter herbs. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lush carbnonation. This is most delicious!

I had the chance to sample this on tap at Rich O’s. On tap it is not as estery, and rates closer to a 4. Still an excellent beer, but no bouquet of esters that makes this so delicious.
