COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bons Vux (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 .

750mL. Celebrating #300! This is the epitome of a golden beer. Fluffy, dense white head depending on the pour. Nose is possibly the biggest let down, a bit of tropical fruit, and other generic sweet maltiness. Body is bursting with spiciness and other festive goodness. A healthy dose of minerality is present, mostly rust, copper pipe, and possibly brass but it is somehow well integrated with the spiciness and alcohol. This was a bit of a disappointment as the #1 rated Saison and their normal Saison is one of my favorite beers. I may have to re-visit this closer to the holidays.

Pours a cloudy deep yellow with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, pepper, grass, lemon. Taste is roughly the same with a sweetness coming through. Good stuff. I see why this is more of a winter then summer, since it is a little bit thicker then other saisons.

BeerBlitz (72) - Roslyn, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2008
750 ml bottle. God, I love this beer. I love the fact that it’s considered a saison, albeit a winter saison. Full bodied without being heavy or cloying, delicious in flavor and appearance. Straw color with a thick white foamy head. Alcohol content is well concealed. I would love to make this a daily drinker.

IrishBoy (4078) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Draft at Seattle International Beer Fest; Nose of cinnamon, nutmeg, and light hoppiness; hazy gold with a small off-white head; flavor of slight hop bitterness and Belgian spices.

Pours an honey orange color with a nice fluffy bone colored head. Nose is citrus, grass, pears, yeast, and clover honey. Taste is fruity and sweet but not very complex. Extremely refreshing and there is not any tartness or funk that is characteristic of some of Dupont’s other saisons. I like it, and at 9.5% the alcohol content is a ghost.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2008 75cl bottle. Flakey yellow, thick pale head. Yeasty nose, pear, apple, little chalk and menthol. Flavor is nicely malty with strong menthol spiciness. Alcohol shows a bit too much in the finish. Medium to full bodied, strongly carbonated palate. Very fresh, but not as diverse as the basic Dupont.

notalush (5669) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2008
Effervescent, hazy straw beer, with a soapy, well-sustained head - somewhat musty, earthy aroma, with apparent pils malt, light hop spiciness, some citrus tanginess - quite peppery, grassy, and herbal up front, followed by a relatively high sweetness for the style - this is followed by some herbal, tea-like character, and then some white pepper - the alcohol is completely masked - finishes with honey and wildflowers (lavender) - more like a spicy trippel due to its sweetness, but still pretty nice.

basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Pours hazy yellow, with a lot of carbonation. Smells of yeast, which is visible in the glass. Tastes of bread and fruit. Something else in there though that makes this beer stand out. Its smooth, no tart. Dont know what it is, but Im sure Ill try it again.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - JUN 18, 2008
A tall, dense head develops atop a yellow-gold body in a Duvel tulip. Thick and sweet with some funky, yeasty notes taking a back seat. The alcohol is pretty up front and builds. Some bitterness is in the background trying to fight its way through the sweet flavors and alcohol but ultimately loses out. Nice enough, but not preferable to Veille Provision.
