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 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.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 25, 2007
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!

HopHeadinAZ (180) - Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2007
750 ML bottle: 2006 release. Pours a hazy golden with a lingering medium ivory head. The nose is very complex. There is spice, and yeast on the nose. The taste follows with a bit of coriander, pepper and yeast. The palate is good although not exceptional. The mouth feel is medium. Overall this is a very nice beer although I don’t think it has anything that would define it as a holiday beer in American terms.

WISEGUY572 (1374) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Gorgeous pour ... apricot gold with a huge firm big-bubble pure white head. Nose of yeast, orange, coriander. Taste of yeast, orange, coriander, pepper bite ... and then ... out of nowhere ... nasty of nasties ... serious funk. What is this doing in a Saison? Have we gone lambic all of a sudden? I’ll need to think about this some more. And as it breathes the skuny funkiness goes away. I sort of like this.

PorterPounder (6136) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft - 750 ml corked bottle. Hazy, medium peach colored pour with a soft silky white head that leaves delicate clingy lacing. Fresh flowery aroma with hints of pear juice, a mixture of spices - perhaps coriander. Full-bodied flavor with some soft citrus notes, light yeast, hints of sweet uncooked cake mix. Spicy notes shine through in the back end with some coriander notes and a lemony aftertaste that permeates throughout. Thickish creamy mouthfeel that coats the tongue and warms the belly. Excellent Saison that hits the spot after a long day of last minute Christmas shopping.
