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 .

Bottle. Musty apple cider aroma. Hazy golden yellow color with an insanely giant head. Initially a slightly sweet apple cider followed by a musty, dry malt flavor. Dryness lingers nicely after swallowing. Premiere.

Quevillon (2811) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2008
Bouteille de 750 ml verte foncée, bu à Brouhaha à Montreal le 18/7/08. Blonde brumeuse dorée, un peu de collet. Arome de malté épicé, herbe de provence, un peu sûrette. Goût de malte sec épicé, orge doux, légèrement houblonné avec une amèrturme agréable et elle devient sucré avec le temps. Une bonne beilege forte bien balancée!

750ml cork and cage, 2007. Hazy honey color with a frothy white head. Wet hay, yeast, bread along with pineapple, grapefruit - it smells like a tube of freshly opened tennis balls a little bit. Well round saison aroma. Crisp and earthy flavor. Pleasant spicy and hoppy finish. Musty and a little cheesy, seltzer-sized bubbles. Really quite spicy. Quite good, despite this being a winter seasonal, I think it’s still a great warm weather beer.

750mL. Celebrating #300! This is the epitome of a golden beer. Fluffy, dense white head depending on the pour. Nose is possibly the biggest let down, a bit of tropical fruit, and other generic sweet maltiness. Body is bursting with spiciness and other festive goodness. A healthy dose of minerality is present, mostly rust, copper pipe, and possibly brass but it is somehow well integrated with the spiciness and alcohol. This was a bit of a disappointment as the #1 rated Saison and their normal Saison is one of my favorite beers. I may have to re-visit this closer to the holidays.

undsioux7 (870) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2008
Pours a cloudy deep yellow with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, pepper, grass, lemon. Taste is roughly the same with a sweetness coming through. Good stuff. I see why this is more of a winter then summer, since it is a little bit thicker then other saisons.

BeerBlitz (72) - Roslyn, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2008
750 ml bottle. God, I love this beer. I love the fact that it’s considered a saison, albeit a winter saison. Full bodied without being heavy or cloying, delicious in flavor and appearance. Straw color with a thick white foamy head. Alcohol content is well concealed. I would love to make this a daily drinker.

Draft at Seattle International Beer Fest; Nose of cinnamon, nutmeg, and light hoppiness; hazy gold with a small off-white head; flavor of slight hop bitterness and Belgian spices.

Pours an honey orange color with a nice fluffy bone colored head. Nose is citrus, grass, pears, yeast, and clover honey. Taste is fruity and sweet but not very complex. Extremely refreshing and there is not any tartness or funk that is characteristic of some of Dupont’s other saisons. I like it, and at 9.5% the alcohol content is a ghost.
