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 .

750 pours light amber gold with a pillow like white head and cobweb lace that seems to morph into spot lace. The aroma is banana, spicy and yeasty - not much funk. The flavor is sweet, banana, pear, peach, spicy, yeasty, some slight hops, with some minor funk. The palate is nice and rich for the style. The alcohol is nowhere to be tasted or smelled. There is a lingering sour or yeast flavor that really balances out the sweetness well. It gets ultra yeasty and spiced near the bottom - I dont waste the yeast. Overall, well done. Great for my birthday today!

Thick white head that disepated quickly. Golden orange in color with good sweetness. Dry to finish. Nicely carbonated,

Draft at the Hopleaf in Chicago. Nice but short lasting white head. Not as funky as I expected from a Saison. The horseblanket I was expecting was more of a horse throw pillow. I would drink this again in a heartbeat but dont expect something sour or overly earthy!

AmEricanbrew (6727) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Orange/yellow color with a decent white head. Big citrus fruit, earthy aroma with dry malts. Medium body. Nice merry go round of flavors range from lightly sweet to bone dry and tart with dusty malts, herbs, an earthy mustiness, grassy hops and lemon; a pretty complex brew here. The finish here is dust bowl dry. Very good. 2177

Hazy golden in color with a thick creamy head that remains and nice lacing. The Aroma is bready, bret yeast, pear and hay. Flavor is spicy aged lemon, wheat and sweet malty spices. Medium to full body, crisp and clean. Highly carbonated, long dry finish.

Im sure skyway tuffs were made of dupont. They never tasted this good though. At the beer festival in Manchester, though Ive had it before from our kid. Great aroma, great taste. Fucking belting.

Pours a beautiful orange color with thick head and Belgian lace. Aroma has honey notes and citrus spice with heavy alcohol. Dry with power packed finish. This is probably one of my favorite beers of all time.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2008 Had on tap. Really nice seasonal ale. Pours golden red. Intense floral aroma of yeast, light fruits, and aromatic hops. Has a good deal of funk, but that only serves to complement the other flavors. has a great spicy funky, bready quality to it. Very smooth. Nice finish, An excellent farmhouse ale.

thanks to mcbackus for the bottle. cloudy golden color, nice big head that dissipats quickly, but leaves a wonderful lacing. Very aromatic, skunky, and sour, with touches of lemon, and pepper. Flavour is smooth, and almost a touch lambic like with the sourness. Wow, this is a great saison, easily the best of its style.
