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 .

Pours nicely, orange gold, looks great. Grassy notes are totally present, definately smells like a saison. Barnyard funkyness, light citrus and juicy malts early to mid palate. This brew was nice and left me licking my lips quite often.

750 mL bottle purchased at Covell Nugget in Davis, CA. 2007 vintage. Aroma is dominant with a fair amount of cereal grains, mildly cheesy fun, and floral, spicy, piney hops emanating from the glass. Also has a touch of ethanol with some yeast esters. Mild to moderately hazy honey-colored body with a nice, frothy bubbly white head and nice lacing. An attractive brew. Quite a carbonated start, which becomes pretty bitter pretty quickly. A great deal of herbal, spicy hoppiness is present to start. In the middle, there is definitely some cereal graininess and minute amounts of floral sweetness. Finishes with a bit of ethanol flavoring and more dry-ish herbal bitter hop flavors. A good brew, but I am not a huge saison guy.

DocLock (8677) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Draft at DRE. Hazy medium gold pour with fluffy off-white head. Aroma is funky, spicy yeast, dry flowery notes, hopcitrus. The mouthfeel is velvety, very smooth, very complex, with dry floral notes coupled with spicy and funky yeast notes, plus a solid hop bill, and some citric fruity flavor qualities. This one is a very nice saison.

ElGaucho (2319) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Draught at Blue Nile, Minneapolis. Last pull from the keg before it blew. Belgian qualities in the aroma; fresh, gym locker room. A little allspice in the nose as well. Unique and yeasty. Murky, dark gold. Thick, large, slightly off-white head with artistic lace. Creamy, yeasty aroma. Very good brew.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Hazy golden pour, big fluffy white head. Aroma is yeasty, spicy and a touch of citrus. Flavor has an earthy taste to it with light fruits, apples, pears, honey sweetness in the background. Dry mouthfeel but a slight citrus tartness and lots of lively carbonation. The yeasty is the dominating flavor with a good amount of hops in there as well with a touch of light fruits. Just an easy drinking beer.

DenverLogan (940) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Cloudy gold; nice lingering head. Aroma of lemon, yeast, bread, white pepper. Flavors are of a very rich saison and also include coriander, clove, citrus, sour apple, amber malt, honey, slight alcohol and burnt caramel. Rich and refreshing, I usually age this for a couple of years, but its good fresh also, bottle or draft.

bhensonb (12750) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 8, 2008
Bottle from Marcus (thanks!) at wine frig temperature. Very yeasty aroma, accompanied by citrus and light brownish sugar. Hazy orangey gold color with a white head that persisted. Mild lacing. Medium bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is yeasty, lightly fruity (apricot, peach, that sort of fruit) with a nice level of bitter - which could be floral. There is some spicey tingle; peppery? The finish is dry, clean, a little bit puckery. Drinks very nicely. Could be a tad funky, as theres a woody note. The flavors move around as drinking progresses and the glass warms. Great.

750 ml bottle. Beer pours orange hazy with visible residues and nice white head. This beer has a nice inviting grassy aroma. Yeast and hop flavors predominate and alcohol is very well hidden. An amazingly enjoyable beer to drink.

DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2008
Van tvat, Erasmus, Brugge. Orange haze draped with lace. Fat, yeasty, tropical fruit-accented aroma with a hint of banana. Chewy citrus, earthy rind, and banana esteriness. Intense hop bitterness to finish. Impressively hoppy, full-flavoured strong ale.
