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 .

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Clear warm golden yellow with a rocky white head, softening with time, thinning gradually. Sweet malt backbone with some spice, cinnamon, lemony pepper (hops?), a bit soapy. I can slightly smell the christmas. Low carbonation, a bit viscous and creamy. Sweet,with bittery lemony peppery hops. A bit soapy, a bit creamy, a sharp little bit of alcoholic acidity. Herbal, alcoholic finish, lingering bitterness. A bit too sweet, a bit too spicy.

Ofortuna (322) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Gorgeous whipped cream head and a very aromatic character which leaps up from the snifter. Intriguing notes of powdered wasabi, grains of paradise, cardamom, white pepper and a bit of anise seed. Also of note is the famed Dupont house yeast strain which offers another layer of complexity with interesting esters and a solid earthiness. Fruity with some slight citrus. Alcohol level has a slight hint of fusel, but for the style and the level – nothing to be alarmed about. Typically I like my Saisons more subtle and this certainly packs more of a pop, but still retains the refreshing character, crisp spiced notes and balanced complexity that make this a hallmark of its class.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2011 750, about a year old at this point. Still very fresh and pert in its flavors, with a big golden body and huge head/lacing. The winter spices intended to differentiate this from the standard Dupont saison are verrrrry subtle - a hint of cardamom, some vanilla, a very faint sour apple. Basically it’s a fine and distinct saison that’s as good during this brutal heat as it is during the winter. Kudos!

Christian (11380) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Cloudy yellow with a small white head. Complex aroma with herbs (rosemary and sage), orange peel, mango and grassy hops. Dry bready malt flavur with spices and hops, and some pumpkin-like nuttiness. Fruity notes of peach and pineapple. Very herbal and quite bitter finish. Did I mention complex? Make sure you get a bottle to yourself to fully appreciate it!

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2007 Ah what a nice bottle. Soft, effervescent mouthfeel is delightful. Big, hoppy and dry. Tastes better and better with every sip and proves itself as an exceptional brew.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Bottle at the Chris_o shindig. Very pale gold, nice white airy foam cap. Peppermint, golden raisin, a bit of leather and acid. A fresh and intreiging aroma.. Delicate fresh fruit esters--unbelievably delicate for the strength. Just a bit of menthol in the finish. Really impressive beer.

On tap @ Buckeye Beer Engine: Pours a clear gold with a white head. Aroma, funky with some sour notes. Flavor, tart with some lemon, and some funk. A dry yeasty finish. Pretty solid.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 10, 2007
Bottle, Chris_o shindig. Cloudy yellow straw, thin white head. Quite acetic, sweet with alcohol present. Sherberty yeasty. Banana and something else that I couldn’t put my finger on. Quite complex. Some yeast, and some fruityness. Quite lively with some dusty sweet finish.
