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 .

A murky, dark orange pour with a moderately sized head. Malty, bready nose with coriander, alcohol, floral notes, hops, Dupont-style yeast and a certain pepper-like spicyness. Nice spicy yeasty taste, pretty fruity for a saison. Definitely on the dry side. Almost no tartness or barnyard funk, which surprised me. Average mouthfeel, nothing special, not much carbonation though. Very drinkable yet a bit bland. Nice, but dissappointing - I expected more from a strong saison like this!

Bottle from 02. A gift picked up in Amsterdam at De Bier Koning.Pours a pale golden colour with a stiff white rocky head like beaten egg whites.Wonderful esthery aromas emit from my glass, apples, strawberries, vanilla, pepper, dusty cobwebbs, yeast. At fisrt sip... Oh my god its belgian beer heaven. Beautiful fruity yeast, honey, pepper,Quite subtly complex( read I dont have the verbal acuity to properly describe what Im tasting)Rich full mouthfeel, perfectly carbonated. Incerdibly drinkable, no, dangerously drinkable. The best thing Ive tasted out of Belgium.....So far.

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
[Sampled at Carlsens, Odense in 2005.] Enormous aroma with lots of ingredients such as grapefruits and coriander. Very heavy flavor with dry spices and cereals. On tap in Belgium it must be like in heaven!

ABUSEDGOAT (2388) - California, USA - JAN 3, 2007
Cloudy golden, huge rocky head, good lacing and retention. Aroma is spices, pepper, loads of yeast, grass, funk. Flavor brings this with a light alcholic finish. An enjoyable Saison.

Draft. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a good size head. The head dwindled a bit during the drinking but stayed with a nice ring. Spice is present in the aroma and taste. Corriander is present i n thearoma. Taste is of lemon, ugly fruit, yeast, and orange peel. Finishes awesome. Cheers!

Finally grabbed this one and enjoyed it immensely. Well made, well balanced, very complex beer. Nice citrus aromas. The taste is dominated by yeast and spice. Cloudy golden color with a big white head. More subtle than what I remember of other saisons I have had. That subtleness and complexity adds to the experience of this one. This is why people love this style.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Pale yellow clear color (the result of a careful pour.) Aromas of citrus and hay. With the same citrus and crisp spiciness on the finish. Excellent.

strangaj (250) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2007
a bit like opening a bottle of champaigne and just as bubbly. Tastes smooth and dry with little to no aftertaste. A much better Saison that the south hampton in my opinion.
