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 .

0.75l bottle (2006) courtesy of heavy (thanks!), shared with him and ogivlado
Poured a murky apricot body with nice, lively carbonation and a great, huge thick white snowy head that went away slowly. The nose is pleasant, dominated by a nice Belgian spice and malt, with some lacticity and honey. Just a bit sourish. Taste? Damn nice... warming alcohol, apple, malt... general fruitiness, very spicey... lovely yeasty funkiness, somewhat chalky sweetness. As tasty as I expected it to be but it isn’t one of the top 10 beers that I’ve had.

(Bottle, 375 ml) dark blonde coulour with a mediumsized and fomy head that has a kind of off-white colour. It has a fruity aroma and a rich palate with a subtile bitter aftertaste and hints of dough. This is one to cherish.

An elegant pale coloured beer. Quite foamy. Cloudy and also bubbling. Light and full of taste. Magnificent beer. Good with cooked whitefish.

750mL bottle shared @ Monk’s with Pwn3d and Belushi. Poured a hazy golden body with spritzer-like carbonation - little white head. The aroma i spice, and maybe orange. The taste was spicy, with ginger and orange. The 9.5% alcohol is hidden very well. Great saison.

750ml 2007 edition bottle at Monk Cafe. Very much reminded me of La Fin Du Monde. Taste is great.. clove, orange, some ginger, and spice. Alcohol was there if you looked for it, but for the most part extremely well hidden. Awesome huey orange color. Vivacious carbonation. Went extremely well with food. Would highly recomend.

Pours cloudy yellow with chunkies dispersed throughout. Head is white and fades fast. Aroma is standard for saison: spice, hops, and the barnyard funk. Not as highly carbonated as I thought it would be, but still is lively on the palate. Flavor is spice, yeast, hops. I was hoping for a drier and hoppier finish. This is good but I think I like the Vieille Provision better. It seems a bit strong for a Saison and seems to be better fit for the holidays and not a refreshing summer saison. All that said I still like this brew and would put it a close second behind the Vieille Provision.

Clear yellow golden color with a white head that has good retention and lacing. Smells of bubblegum, chamomille, flowers, and hints of pepper and ginger. Light spice, chamomille, clove, and bubblegum in the taste. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Good stuff.
