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 .

Pompey (42) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Golden slightly hazed pour with a nice one-inch head in a tulip glass. Aroma is sweet wet grass wit a hint of yeast. Good body especially for a Saison. I should note that I’m not a big Saison fan, but this is a good one. Full body, light yet nice mouthfeel and a wonderful malt, citrus, yeast flavor. Very well balanced. The high alcohol is almost invisible behind the bouquet of flavors. Nice.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Pour is hazy golden with a lot of sediment in suspension. Aroma is bitter with some sweet fruit, malt, yeast, and some slight alcohol. Flavor is a little sour with some slight bitterness as well as sweet fruit and light malt characters. There is a good amount of spice as well in this brew. Real tasty and worth the purchase.

I want to have this beer’s babies. I’m currently basking in the glory of $14 bottles of this stuff and life is pretty bloody good. Despite its size there’s nothing too obvious about it, but there’s lemony hops, peppery yeast, vanilla ice cream malt and some gin-like alcohol warmth, though it really is ridiculously easy to drink for its size - I’d say it appears noticeably less boozy than the Moinettes. Very hoppy in an extremely low key way, if that’s possible. Everything it beautifully rounded, everything is in place, and it tastes as good as I recall it from Belgium. Love it. Even better than Saison Dupont.
