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 .

Gorgeous. Pours golden with a medium sized white head that has some staying power. Carbonation is perhaps the most visually interesting I’ve ever seen. It dances, moving slowly and elegantly. One of the finest looking beers I can recall. Aroma is yeasty, with a lot of fruity character. It smells great. The flavor, well it comes off as being very clean to me. This is not at all bad. I’ve had many Belgians that just seemed sloppy in their flavor, and just did not feel polished. This seems to be very well designed in it’s structure, and I really enjoyed it. The ABV does not show itself, and I think I could drink this stuff quite often.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Bottle. Spicy nose with light fruit notes and orange peel. Earthy spices like thyme and pepper contrast strawberry and cherry aromas. Cloudy pale gold with a big fluffy head that laces nicely. Big alcohol presence, sharp with some astringency and a peppery bite. Buttery notes underneath. A bit muddled and harsh.

750 ml bottle - 2007 vintage; thanks to beerlando for the trade; pours hazy, light orange with frothy white head; aromas of sour apples, bitter cloves, lemons; very wine-like; drink very, very dry with flavors of lemons, grapes and spice; lots of funk and more spicy than the other 3 during my night of saisons; like the level of funk; very nice

aroma of lemon and other sunny fruits. yeast comes next, also providing defined clouded yellow body. belgian spice mixes with up front booze profile creating an almost sweet pastry like flavor. this is a bold, ’big beer’ - which is in itself bold departure for a saison, which this certainly is despite some amount of trail blazing in its flavor profile. wonderful head borders on the whipped cream sometimes seen in non-saison belgian ales. while the alcohol makes this slightly less palatable then some others of the famed dupont family, its contribution to complexities cannot be denied. the use of spice and its ABV indeed make this a great holiday brew.

I screwed up and accidentally updated a Vieille Provision score with my score for this beer. This was an awesome beer. Poured a hazy yellow color with a thick, dense white head that left some spotty lacing. Aroma of some moderate citrus (orange peel, light lemon), lightly funky barnyard yeast, some soft spices, and a bit of floral hops. Flavor consists of a lightly tart, smooth entry with some hints of wheat and undertones of citrus and a moderate yeasty funk smoothing out into a moderately spicy finish with some undertones of soft fruit and a dry yeastiness. Crisp and dry on the palate, a real treat to drink. Awesome.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2008
A little hazy yellow/orange colored beer, with a nice foamy white head. The aroma of fruits and grassy, sweet malts with some spices. The taste of citrus/orange with some malt and yeast. There are notes of coriander. Good balance. The aftertaste gives a warm feeling.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2008 Murky dirty blonde pour from 375ml bottle. Small, lasting white foamy head. Aroma is grassy hops, wheat and grass with some alcohol. Taste is bitter hops, grass, coriander, slightly sour, warming alcohol and dry finish. Med carbonation and thick mouthfeel. Pretty damn good, even better second time round.
