COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bons Vúux (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 .

wacho (52) - Izegem, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2008
Het bier dat door de brouwer zelf gekozen is als nieuwjaarsgeschenk voor zijn gasten. Het blond koperen aroma heeft een bittere, fruitige maar ook fijne hopsmaak die een lange rijpheid kenmerkt

KnutAlbert (6440) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2008
Aroma: Peach, barnyard, Belgian yeast, citrus. Flaovur: More of the same. Sweet and sour, stable, overripe fruit. Pearlsy carboantion, loud pop from the cork, but no gusher.

Lothore (612) - California, USA - APR 26, 2008
A- Pours a deep golden yellow hue. Slightly hazy with a huge frothy white head which leaves tons of lacing as it goes down. An absolutely beautiful brew. S- Smell is very strong. Fruit notes, Belgian spices and yeast combine to make my mouth water. T- This is where this saison lets me down a little, not because it tastes bad but because of the fact that it just seems unbalanced and after the amazing look and smell I had my hopes a little too high. As one might expect you get the same fruit notes as in the nose, very few of the spices and a belgian yeast which leaves a slight skunky Heineken flavor in your mouth. While this paragraph seems like I donít like the taste that isnít it at all. I think it is one of the best saisonís I have ever had but I felt like it could be the ultimate with a couple tweaks. M- Mouthfeel is very crisp, lingers on the palate a bit and seems to go down very smooth. Amazingly refreshing. D- Again because of the fact that the taste isnít where I would like it to be, it got dinged in this category a bit, however I had no trouble finishing the 750 by myself.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle sampled. Pours golden with just a little orange and a big pillow of a white head. Aroma of fruit, spices, yeast, some funk, hay, and hops. The flavor is fruit, sweet, spices galore, some hay, yeast, caramel, and a bitter hoppy finish. Good body, lively carbonation.

larsga (6937) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 25, 2008
Huge offwhite coarse shiny lasting head. Hazy yellow body. Sharpish peppery fruity aroma with softly metallic powdery yeasty notes with some barnyard. Intense dry-sweet yeasty fruity chalky barnyard taste with metallic notes. Bitter grassy malty banana fruit aftertaste. Very nice, but a bit too bitter and harsh. (0.75l bottle from BeerMania, Brussels.)

tennisjoel (1270) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2009 Apricot pour with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is sour lemon, barnyard funk, and some sweet sugary fruits. Flavor is masked well. Not as dry as the original dupont saison, but still very much to style. Well done. Alcohol is extremely well masked here.

BuckeyeSammy (583) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2008
Meaty aroma, yeast bomb. Yellow golden with a thick white fluffy head. Flavor is bananas, light fruits. Breast yeast, some zesty undertones. Alcohol present, bitter caboose. Good, but not my favorite saison.

surmont (12) - USA - APR 13, 2008
Best beer of Belgium for 2007. Rich and with the flavors of natural strong beer. Has the power of a trappist and the elegance of a flemish triple.

ironchefscott (357) - portland, Oregon, USA - APR 8, 2008
great when fresh......light bret aroma....very nice body and tastes...well like a saison...but more so....everything is bigger...almost like an imperial saison.....maybe that should be a new style guideline?
