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 .

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 18, 2007
750ml - 2005 - Aroma of funky yeast, holiday spices, grass and sweet bread. Pours cloudy yellow with a steady stream of bubbles cascading up from the center of my Duval tulip. A huge head leaves great lacing. Flavor is sweet and funky with Dupont yeast and holiday spices, pepper and alcohol. Palate is tart and sticky. A potent saision to be sure with the alcohol biting a bit. I would like to revisit with a fresh one since there wasn’t much hops here in this aged bottle.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2007
Bottle. Average fizzy white head that mostly lasted. Fair lacing. Hazy orange color. Dust, barnyard, grain, spice, citrus, fruit, caramel, liquorish, yeast and herbs. Full bodied with a lively carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor with some bitter notes and hint of acidic. Light alcoholic texture. Spicy sweet finish. Excellent Saison!

thewolf (11235) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a little white head. A sweet and fruity aroma. Pineapple, apples and oranges. Round taste, fresh and slightly vinious. Really good.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2007
750ml bottle. Tulip glass. Cloudy pale yellow with a large head. Aroma was yeast, citrus fruit and spice. The taste was tangy and dry with notes of yeast and peppery spices. The alcohol was noticeable up front, but mellowed as it warmed. (Or was it just that I was getting drunk having eaten little before opening the bottle.) This was a bit over-the-top for me and at this point prefer the more subtle Dupont Vieille Provision. But overall a very nice saison.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2007
750ml bottle from Kingdom Liquors Brandon, Fl. Pours a hazy golden with a large long lasting white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of black pepper, sweet malt, light citrus, floral and earthy hops. Taste is the same as aroma just more pronounced. Medium thin mouthfeel that finishes dry and slightly tart. A wonderfull Saison.

downender (6523) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle from Hopduvel warehouse, Gent. A hazy gold colour with a strong, white head. Aromas of bitter hops and farmyards. Flavourwise, the alcohol really dominated - it almost burned. Not to my taste, I much prefer the weaker Dupont saison.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Courtesy SoLan. Pours a hazy, yeasty, gold with a thick, frothy, well retained white head. Really nice looking. Lovely aromas, some nutmeg, cinnamon spices, coriander, a little clove, some funky citrus as well. Taste is quite spicy, kind of explodes around the sides of the mouth. Just a touch of some pepper, not much sourness. More nutmeg and cinnamon than anything. A touch of some orange citrus rounds out the flavors. Really refreshing for how spicy it is. Pretty creamy in the finish, the aftertaste is slightly bitter and funky. Fantastic.
