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 .

750ml. Pours cloudy yellow with a huge, rocky white head. At first the aroma is more like a strong hefeweizen - clove, wheat, yeast, vanilla then it picks up a bit of tartness and funk when it warms up. Taste is smooth, surprisingly bitter, with a unique finish that is hard to name. It tastes kind of like sour dough bread and not in a good way. Maybe even a bit skunky. Alcohol hidden very well. The weird finish didn’t sit too well with me. This is good bu that flavor was off putting. Fantome still rules all.

Bottle IBS, Perth, WA Im not sure if I tasted this on a bad palate day, but the bottle I had didnt quite hit the lofty hights of most reveiws. Lost of interesting spicy, light flavours, but these seems to be overbourne by a yeasty breadiness that made it feel like a very heavy beer.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2010 Slightly cloudy golden body topped by an initially large white head. Tons of wild yeast on the nose with hints of bananas, cheese and all those cool things you get from the genuine Dupont yeast. There’s never too much of that stuff. Taste is obviously very yeasty with some vanilla and a warming alcohol that takes a bit too much room IMHO. Overall feeling of drinking an alcoholised ice-cream. Moderately spicy with spices of the peppery kind. The generous amount of herbal hops is a pleasant surprise. All-in-all a great funky grassy spicy beer. Yeast-wise it seems very similar to the Moinette Bio but the rest of the recipe reminds me of the Moinette Blonde. Better in reasonable servings. I used to think it was as good as any Dupont but that’s because I always shared bottles with friends. After a 750ml by myself I’ve changed my mind, it is better in smaller servings. I prefer the lighter and funkier Vieille Provision and Moinette Biologique. Another great offering from a brewery which products are as popular and affordable as Windows PCs yet as reliable as Macs.

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
