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 .

[sampled at Hopleaf, Chicago] Cloudy, golden yellow color. Fruity aroma, citric, almost kind of earthy. Flavors are strongly bitter, with loads of esters. Spicy and phenolic; very complex. Finishes with a wonderful dryness. Strong carbonation.

Not a preferred style of mine. Cloudy orange color with a light white head. Smell is funky and citris and strange. Flavor is average and bland and a bit sour. Overall, just okay. For the style, probably amazing - but I didn’t dig it.

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2008 Pours light orange to yellow with whitish head. Smell is minty, and lemony fresh, perhaps herbal as well. Taste is sharp, somewhat tart and a touch spiced as well. Some butteriness to the flavor at the same time and a honey sweetness to it. Faintly hopped as well, but sweetness prevails still a bit from this.

8th Rating from 3rd Annual Woodshop tasting in Temple City, CA. 3/1/08. One hell of a day put on by Cquiroga, thanks for a killer day Chris. Also spent the day there with bikesanbeer, my girlfriend Cyn, wetherel, JohnC, DenverLogan, dirty_martini, jasparg, DrBil, IPAFiend, awaisanen and many others, this was one crazy day. 2004 Vintage bottle, and it has aged very well. Pours gold and yellow with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet and nutty. Taste is sweet yeasty and damn nice.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2008
sampled at the Kulminator on tap: Floral and earthy aroma reminiscent of brett spring forth from this beautifully cloudy beer. It poured with 2 fingers of head which laced beautifully down the side of the glass. Flavor is of a summer afternoon. Earthy hops, floral notes, cereal malt, all balance out with harmony. Mouth feel is light and bubbly, really complements the flavors and the feelings of a summer day.

~3-4 year old bottle. Cloudy light orange body with lots of yeast particulate and a large white head and that fades to a wispy cover. Sweet and fruity nose with fresh herbs, flowers, pepper, apricot and orange. Lightly sweet taste with cotton candy, lavender, pepper and peach. Medium body is very soft with moderate, gentle carbonation.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - FEB 23, 2008
750 ml bottle. An unclear golden beer with a big, persistent white foam that leaves laces on the glass. The aroma is peppery, citric, with a light note of alcohol. The flavour is quite powerful, spicy (pepper, coriander), fruity (lemon), with some alcohol, that is not disturbing but warming. Quite sweet flavours with a decent bitterness. medium to full body, lively carbonation, quite long finish with light to medium bitterness. A much more than average beer, but I prefer their regular Saison, more funky, funny and bitter. However a good winter and strong Saison.
