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 .

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2009 750 ml bottle from PhillyBeer2112 enjoyed at my Holiday Mini Tasting. Pour is hazy gold yellow with a 1/2 inch off white head. Aroma of very full yeastiness, hay and developed earthiness. Floral, honey, and melon notes as well. Really layered and fulling engaging nose. Taste of hay, beautiful layers of earthiness and a mild sweet caramel booziness to the finish. Loved this beer, though the booziness to the finish left it a bit short of perfect. Thanks for this one Dan.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Draft at Capone’s. Poured a murky light golden orange with a spare off-white head. Aroma of grass and straw from the yeast. Taste of a bittering hop with some lemon sweet citrus and slight tart. Medium bodied. Not bad, but not worth the hype.

On draft at Capone’s. Pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of candied malts and orange peel. Taste of sweetened candied malts and fresh yeast. Very nice, yet very expensive.

PhillyHomeBrew (176) - Forest Hills, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2008 the body is unfiltered and almost burnt orange. The aroma has a little bit of orange and a lot of fresh bread. The flavor has a little bit of the citrus flavor as well with a ton of yeast. The palate has a little bit of a harsh boozy egde to it but overall very nice. 6.99 for a 750

750 ml bottle. This saison got my attention from the first sniff and kept it through the last swallow. Appealing frothy white head that sticks around. The body is cloudy dark yellow. The first impression from the aroma is smoke and funk from the yeast. That’s followed with notes of bread and grain, alcohol, caramel and lemon. The flavor is lightly sweet, moderately bitter and moderately acidic. Medium body. Smooth mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Nice warming in the finish. Very nice.

Pours light golden color with soft, bubbly white head. Yeasty aroma with ample spice- coriander, peppery notes, candied sugar, sour apple, citrus, and a bit of alcohol astringency as it warms. Some barnyard yeast reminiscent of a lambic is also present. Flavor initially carries bready and sweet malt notes, but finishes dry and spicey. Really unique balance is achieved both in the flavor and in the palate, which is at once creamy and dry.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 24, 2007
750ml bottle: Golden yellow pour with a sticky white head. The nose is huge with lots of lemon lime, coriander, mint, earthy yeast and fresh dough. The body is velvetty and malt driven. Notes of caramel, sweet bread and straw are abound. Finishes tart and dry. Very good.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2008 on tap - mcmenamin’s (philadelphia) - pours cloudy, straw colored blonde. no head at all in the glass. no visible carbonation. sweet aromas of candy sugar, yeast and spices (coriander perhaps?). Flavor is like a thick, distilled, hefeweizen. Sugary sweet, spiciness, some bannana and yeast flavors. Smooth mouthfeel - velvety. Lo carbonation. Quite drinkable, but not what I would traditionally call a "winter" beer. [update] on tap at Capone’s in Norristown PA. Originally $9 for 9oz., reduced to $7 for 9oz. Review above is right on for this batch too. Imperial Saison!

One of my favourites. Drunk on bottle as well from draft. Really very nice with good body and very nice aftertaste. A must for everyone
