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 .

750 ml bottle pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Strong sour aromas, funky yeast, citrus, and fruit. The flavor is like the aroma tart and very dry. Paired nicely with thai food at Thai Pastry.

Bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy yellow/golden color, big white lasting head. Aroma is fruity, sour, yeasty, malty and sourish with some citric notes. Malty and yeasty flavor with some spices and quite sour. Me like...

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - APR 24, 2007
Bottle at Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Hazy yellow-orange with a strong white one finger cap. Aroma was a bit indistinct for me; the bottle was served a bit cold. Tartness and spice, with a hint of citrus in the background. Taste is sweet upfront with significant and pleasurable spice, a touch of warming alcohol - who would’ve guessed in a 10% saison, hah. This is tripel-like in many ways. Lemon comes through as a tart citrus component throughout the middle. Slightly bitter finish. Fine and refined carbonation, smooth, really rolls along the tongue - love that. Very solid.

750 ml bottle that is 1 year old. Pour is a hazy gold with a nice white head. Aroma is spicy and tart with sweet malt, citrus, lemon, pepper, and fruit. Flavors of yeast, citrusy fruit, lemon tart, funk, and alcohol. I have actually enjoyed other saisons more. This one is just to alcoholic. I like this style to be light and refreshing unlike this one.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy, golden with a dense, white head. Extreme aroma of yeast and diacetyl. Fairly full-bodied with sweetish malt, a distinct yeastiness, diacetyl and fruit. Way too much diacetyl. The finish is strongly alcoholic. This was just way too Belgian - in the not so hot sense. 030407

Popped open with the loudest cork ever from a beer. Poured light with some orangish hints and a pretty big white head. Aroma of some citrus, spice-maybe some pepper, and some funkiness. Flavor was light, citrusy. Palate was incredible. Although a little alcohol was noticable this not sweet at all. I would like to have this with some chicken or turkey.
