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. Good malty aroma with yeast notes. Fruity. Thick monster frothy white head like whipped cream. Golden yellow color. Well carbonated but not overly dry. Creamy mouthfeel. Solid malt, hop, and yeast flavors. Very well balanced with a lightly bitter finish. A good stronger cousin of the Vieille Provision which is also very good.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Draft - Frisco Grille. Hazy gold, creamy off white head. Complex nose of honey, candied apple, corriander, with faint white pepper and banana tones. Taste is much of the same with honey, pepper, fruity esters, and soft underlying grassy and herbal hop notes. Well balanced and well integrated. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry, light pepper fruit finish. Very nice...

golden/amber body with large, frothy head..aroma of citrus hops (largely lemon), herbs and spices, heavy yeast, and sour funk...flavor is both fruity and spicey, has a definite clove backbone, and finishes quite floral and dry...

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2006
Draft. Aroma: Wheat, tangerine, yeast, coriander, dusty basement, perfumey floral, and a light lemon zest note. Appearance: Dark straw in color and slightly hazed. White head was full and creamy with good retention. Great lacing. Flavor: Some citrus up front with alot of orange and lemon zest. Strong spiciness with coriander, clove, and pepper. Yeast and wheat malt come in together followed by a slight musty funk. Perfumey floral flavor is strong and lingers into the finish. Surprisingly strong hop bite. Finishes dry and refreshing. Delicious. Palate: Medium-light bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Slight alcohol warmth in back of mouth. Overall: Really enjoyed this one. Everything I want in a Saison with a couple of curveballs. Strong floral presence is surprising at first, but works well with the rest of the flavors. Ditto to the hop flavor/bitterness. Great saison.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 20, 2006
750mL bottle, 2006. Hazy, honey-golden appearance; brilliant white head with great retention and tight lacing. Generous aroma: plenty of yeast, white pepper, honey and spice; hints of funk. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: yeasty, belgian ale profile, pepper and spice. Quite dry, filling, and fluffy. Medium, dry finish with plenty of yeast.

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - DEC 19, 2006
On tap at the Kerstbierfestival in Essen. Aroma of citrus and honey, with more of same in flavor. But here it’s dry and somewhat bitter, faintly sour, instead of overly sweet. Dryness is perfect, with a great cottony mouthfeel. Sorry I’ve never had this before, looking forward to having it from a bottle.

SHIG (3543) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle: Poured a blonde amber with a white head. Smell was a yeast fruit aroma. Very citrus and yeast flavor, left an acidy finish.
