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 .

LilBeerDoctor (3737) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Bottle, 2007. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, apple skins, light fruits (citrus) and spices. Flavor is quite similar, lots of yeast, apple, and spices. ’’Hot’’ and warming. Nice saison (but I prefer the regular Saison Dupont).

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Bottle, 2007. Aroma yeasty/doughy with citrus, grape, light pepper, some alcohol. Flavor more bready than doughy with more of the pepper, similar fruit feel to the nose. Gentle hops and somewhat less gentle alcohol in the finish. Very tasty.

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2008
my sort of beer..... oh god this just makes me weep. lovely herbal/peachy/bready aroma with prominent barnyard. a barnyard on a promontory overlooking a peach orchard - someone is baking herb bread nearby. no sign of 9.5% alcohol - no fusels or solvent in smell at all! thrusting my nose in and breathing deeply and slowly as if i’m going to sing, i smell freshly ground black pepper on top of it. fluffy nougat apricot and peach then a long, broad and green hoppy finish that goes on and on, mingling with black pepper phenols. wahey this is the stuff. for A$15 per 5.6 standard drinks it beats most cheap plonk for bang/buck at the same time as most expensive champagne for quality.

Skinnyviking (8704) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle. High creamy and long lasting white head. Hazy yellow body. Sweet fruity, apple pear lemon, aroma. Mild and sweet fruity flavor with no indication of the high alcohol percentage. Low carbonation and a sweet short aftertaste.

Avengedpoet (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Pours a goldenrod yellow with significant haze and an immaculate whipped cream thick head. Aroma is of heavy, fruity yeast and pils malt. Taste is far thicker than I ever thought a saison was capable of being. Much of the thickness seems to be from hop bitterness that sticks on the palate. Not as good as the standard issue Saison Dupont.

Juelze (1144) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Pours a hazy gold color with thick fluffy head. Aroma is slightly musty, yeasty, citrus and other mild fruit notes permeate the nose. Taste is spicy, fruity, and musty. Palate is slightly sweet followed by some dryness. Overall, a very well done Saison.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Thanks to TheCheeseMan for this one! Pours a straw-yellow color with a large velvet-pillowy white head. Aroma is spicy, lemon, and yeasty. Taste is about the same, with some floral and citrus characteristics. Good stuff, but I still think the Americans do this style better. Sorry, Euros!
