COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bons Vux (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 .

Aroma is sour, grassy (hay), with a touch of lemon zest. Flavor is deep and complex, I wonder how so much can go on at once. Slight sourdough flavor, nices kiss of the hops, alchohol is decptively well hidden, finishes crisp. For a style that has never been my favorite, or so I thought, this is a wonder to behold.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from Uto. Bottle opened itself, cork is m.i.a. Pours golden with a nice thin foamy head that lasts, leaving a coating on the glass. Strong spicy yeast nose, alcohol is apparent. Sweet at first with a slightly bitter orange zest taste that appears as you swallow. Hoppy with notes of honey and pepper. Medium bodied with a syrup like character and lots of sediment. Outstanding...

Pours a perfect slightly hazy orange with a thick billowy white head. Zesty citrusy lemon, white pepper, light banana and a spicy/fruitiness in the nose. The flavor is a bold and tasty mix of pale malt, orange, lemon zest, honey, flowers, grassy noble hops and black pepper. Pleasantly sweet - ending with ample hop bitterness on the back end. Alcohol content very well-hidden. Perfect medium body with that classic lively, spritzy carbonation and dry finish. Excellent.

Bottle. Rating #667: The Neighbor of the Beast. I still cant get worked up about the taste of lemony sweat and wet dog. Maybe some day.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2007
A Mes rate: 37.5cl bottle from what used to be Thirst for Beer in that place in Wales. Wonderful crisp looking colour with a superbly behaved head that finally settles to a thin film and lasts all the way down. Wonderful spicy blonde aroma with hints of hay or straw but underlying perfumed character that is nothing short of enticing. Colour has just gone totally opaque with the final pour. The creamiest hops fall out of the glass and prickle the senses before it even touches your lips. Mouthfeel is surprisingly delicate but spritzy at the same time. Almost funky in the mouth with plenty of what you want from this type of beer but its the finish that really makes this a killer. Inititally unexpectedly sweet but then fiercely bitter followed by a rush of alcohol and it keeps coming in waves. Superb length and a glorious warmth from the good stuff. Seriously good.

Palidor19 (2963) - Brandon, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2007
Taste is very yeasty at first sip. Aroma has a slight spicy with a faint haze to it. The head is attractive yet dissipates rather quickly. The fizzy carbonation tickles your tongue. The rest has a harsh spicy taste yet is very satisfying .

nick76 (4232) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2008 The aroma is very yeasty with a cheese and corn souffle element. The appearance is deep gold with a slight orange hue. The flavor is like the aroma with an astringent bitter finish. The palate is OK but a tad thin. This is interesting but not something I would want to drink regularly.

Golden brew with a thick head. Despite the complex flavors, one of the most refreshing brews,

Bottle thanks to CMUBEERMAN. Pours hazy bubbly gold. Aroma is bleu cheese, tart, tangy, musty, biting. Flavor is smoky, bleu cheese, with a tartness that tapers.

From a 750 ml. caged corked green bottle, 2.005 on the cork, and what appears to be a best before date on the lower right corner on the front label, sampled at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Poured a bright golden orange with a frothy, foamy white head, retention, some laced sticking. Aromas of clove, spices, peppery and herbal, honey, tropical fruits and whiffs of solvent-like alcohol. Good carbonation and a crisp, dry, carbonated smooth light bodied mouthfeel, very nice. Pleasant spice and herbal taste, honey pale malts, tropical fruity that meshes with solvent alcohol, alcohol is warming in the back of the throat, clove, coriander and a peppery spice, earthy, herbal hops that have a soft bitterness, and a dry tart yeasty, malty finish with a little lingering herbalness. A very enjoyable saison, recommended to me by a employee at Sams, Lincoln Park Chicago, thanks!
