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 .

Another awesome saison. These are rapidly becoming one of my favorite styles. Aroma of must, wet blanket and funk. Pour was a nice cloudy medium gold with a hint of a white head. Taste was very complex. Strong funk and dust with a nice bitterness in the front and a dry banana/citrus aftertaste. I would have guessed this beer was 6% had I not known. Awesome!

750 ml. Cloudy gold/light amber pour with a moussy white head. Aroma of bread dough, grass, flowers, musty yeast, some light spice and a bit of citrus and banana. Musty bitterness in the flavor with a light bready and citrusy body underneath. Has a dusty, ’corral rail’ dryness. Some bubblegummy sweetness comes through after a while. Finely carbonated. Excellent saison.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2008 Bottle from BevMo. Pour a slightly hazy medium amber color. Aroma is somewhat yeasty with some sour lemon grass. Somewhat earthy as well. Flavor right up front is tart. Then turns sort of sweet and yeasty for a sec. Very full flavored with good bitterness. Lots of stuff going on. Very well blended. Alcohol is not noticeable at all.

From a 750ml bottle--Effervescent thick foamy white head atop a hazy orange-copper body. Nose of complex sweet fruits such as bananas, oranges, and grapes. Yeasty and spicy through and through. A divine Belgian saison. Slightly mealy and gritty. Bready complexity in finish with a biting spice presence. At 9.5% ABV, the alcohol is well-hidden. Amazingly good brew!

Pours amber / orange with a small off-white head. The aroma has smooth nectar fruits (mainly nectarines) and light spice. The aroma is subdued compared to many saisons, but what is there is great. Medium body that starts off smooth and finish grainy and crisp with minor carbonation. The flavor starts off with citric and nectar fruits that have a richness, but are somehow dry as well. There is also a grainy spice and it has some abv showing through. The finish is quite peppery. This is an interesting and enjoyable saison. It does not seem as complex as most and the palate is smoother than expected for a saison.

thegreenrooster (3463) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Pour is a hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a wonderful yeast and musty with lots of citrus and and pepper. Flavor is equally stellar. Lots of lemon and yeast with some spices. Alcohol is no problem and i would not even think that this would be a 9.5 abv. A very tasty saison and very easy to drink.

Fad. Fik den af to omgange. Første gang var jeg en smule skuffet, da det var som om der manglede noget. Dette noget vidste sig ved overraskende nok at øllen var en smule for varm. Det andet glas var en lille smule køligere og en superlækker øl med rigtgi mange trippel karakteristika dukkede op af denne uklare øl. Virkelig en lækker saison med et godt bid og en god smag af diskrete blomster.

2006. 750mL, with Thanksgiving dinner. Poured cloudy golden with moderate sized off-white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, spice, coriander, perfume and herbs. Yeast and wheat predominate in the flavor, along with some fruit, earth. and citrus. Dry, spicy finish. This was an ideal accompaniment to Thanksgiving dinner.

jefcon (1474) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Nearly savory aromas with lemon pepper and strong yeast. Very light orange, and cloudy, with a lasting pillowy white head. Sharp acidity on the palate, lots of natural flavors, barley and bright wheat. Some peppery alcohol on the finish, which lasts well. A medium weight beer that tastes, well, authentic.

Thanksgiving beer #1 (on the day). Golden color with a deep haziness. Nice white foamy head that sticks to the glass. 750ml. Spicy, peppery aroma with a bit of citrus, slightly sour acidity, and (this is very strange) "the outdoors". Kind of a wild yeasty/pollen/flowery outdoor thing. Flavors were sweet and of course malty up front with a huge amount of dry leafy floral hops... a bit of wild funkiness in the form of a light acidic sourness, some pepper, flowers, and a bit of alcohol. Heavily carbonated but very thick and full-bodied. Definitely a very champagne-like experience. Very crisp and SUPER dry finish. Thoroughly enjoyable. I bought an extra bottle to keep around for awhile... I’ll re-rate it in a few years...
