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 .

Thanks to egajdzis. Pours a light hazy golden with a large foamy off white head that laced nicely. Aroma was lemon, yeast, grassy, light alcohol and vanilla. Flavor was spicy, peppery, yeasty and dry.

750ml bottle. Straw orange yellow pour with a loverly offset shade of white peach. Head stands up for an encore on this one, reaching a headburg of titanic proportions. Well balanced floral yeast dipped in a light sauce of lemon, honey, and coupled with a morning freshness reaching high into the alps. Soft chewy tart like with fresh clove and peppermint. hold it around the mouth and breath out it opens up the bouquet. Best to let this one sit and open up. keep those vents open!

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 8, 2006
750mL bottle. Slightly murky yellow-gold color with a towering rocky white head. Floral spiciness, acedic sourness, and some malty sweetness in the aroma. Tart nose with some mouth-coating herbal astringency. Heavy bubblegum and clove flavors with a tinge of barnyard funkiness. Dry, slightly vegetal finish with residual clove and a complex spiciness. Mouthfeel is light, very dry.

"Poured a nice dark golden color, with great head. Lacing was solid. Aroma was yeasty some spices. The flavor had yeast, barnyard and just plain funky, good funky that is. Had a bitter finish/aftertaste. Solid solid beer."

Siroy (220) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2006
[ Bottled ; chilled ; average of different batch ; from backlog ]
A mostly lasting large frothy white head that tops up a hazy medium yellow body. Moderate lacing. Few thin particles. Few medium bubbles. Aroma presents malt being light hay while hops are moderate herbs /grass/wild ... Yeast character is moderate earth. Also, there are evident evocations of oranges/cinnamon... Initial flavor is medium acidic/tartness while development is moderate sour with some traces of different spices, ranging from peppery yeast to more complex corriander. Woody tones... Finish is medium and leads to a spicy yet restrain form of bitterness, atypical to saison. Medium to full body... creamy texture... Lively carbonation...

Cloudy yellow/gold, with a white head. Aromas are spices, yeast, grass, and citrus. Flavors are spices, yeast, citrus, and alcohol. If this were a touch sweeter, it would make a really good beer a great one. Thanks to matta for this bottle.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Spectacularly complex saison. Wild yeast strains, weird wonderful Belgian spicing...difficult to deconstruct...coriander, orange peels, flowers, herbs, cut grass, pepper, lemon zest... Thoroughly refreshing, with exotic flavors and spritzy texture dancing on the tongue. Pairs well with food...I had it with a gourmet vegetarian pizza. Does not get much better than this!

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2006
A huge, rocky white head floats on a hazy straw body. The aroma is that of a soft malt with a wheaty tartness, yeast, coriander, citrus rinds, light floral scents, a variety of spices, and, as it warms, alcohol. The flavor is a masterful blending of all of the above along with a slight bitterness, all of which makes for a complex, enjoyable drink. Very nice.

On tap at Brick Store Decatur GA. Pours dark yellow to light orange with a big off-white head. Aroma is lightly malty, earthy, and yeasty. Flavor expands on this with faint hints of orange and/or lemon peel, coriander, and a little pepper. Bitterness is low at front, and builds to a long lasting finish. This is easily the best Saison I have had.
