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 .

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 there’s 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.

Van t’vat, 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.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 5, 2008
750ml bottle. Murky yellow with a big white head. Initially, the nose was acrid, cat-pissy and harsh, but after warming and breathing a bit it really changed and mellowed out to a nice, yeasty, white pepper and citrus with a touch of funkiness. Spicy and dry, peppery flavors, yeasty. Good carbonation provides a lively, medium to light mouthfeel. A mild peppery bitter closes the experience. A delightful saison!

Pours from bottle to chalice a deep, slightly hazy golden-orange color. Pour creates a thick, tight white head with great retention throughout the glass. Just a conucopia of complex luscious subtle aromas showing off notes of apple, pear, banana, lemon zest, fresh yeast rolls, coriander and clove with a touch of apricot. Pleasant livey mouthfeel with a full, fluffy body backed by a tingly spritziness. Flavors are crisp and tart starting off with a subdued fruity sweetness with flavors of ripe pear, apple, apricot and banana. This seamlessly melds into a more assertive flavor profile of slightly bittersweet lemon zest, herbs, spices and wood pulp finishing with a faint but balancing Noble hop and warming alcohol ending. Very drinkable and very easy going down for a 9.5%’er. Excellent!!

Oh man how I love saison and this one is no different. Pours out a bright and wonderful orange-yellow color with a thick white head. Aroma is rich and full of yeast, cloves, corriander, and perhaps a bit of orange citrus. Flavors are very nice full of doughy yeast and spices with a nice fruity flavor. Pineapple, pear, and banana all come through on this one. However there is a slightly funky flavor and bittering towards the end that lets the drinker know that this is truly saison. Mouthfeel is heavy and nice, almost chewy and the carbonation I found to be just about perfect. The alcohol in this one is also very well hidden as this beer is incredibly smooth. I had this one fresh, wish I had one more to age to see if it improved at all.
