COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bons Vúux (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, from BevMo LaJolla. Pours hazy peach amber color with a little sediment and a huge white head that leaves thick lace. Fruity and yeasty, tangerine, apricot, coriander, clove in the aroma, with bread dough and whiffs of white pepper. Flavor of sweetbread, candied fruit, pinapple, clove, nutmeg, bitter herbs, a bit of alcohol, umami notes as well. Full body, smooth and velvety, lightly tingly carbonation - perfect mouthfeel!

decaturstevo (5743) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2008
On tap Brick Store/Decatur. A hazed golden orange pour with a creamy white head. Nose is complex in that Iím not sure if it corriander of ginger is the main spice that I pick up. Huge fruity (almost bannana) flavor followed by a bitterness that leans to the tart side. Strong hint of abv but not overpowering. Carbonation and mouthfeel are very solid. Nothing at all bad about this beer. As it warms the corriander really comes to the front.

bottle from Bruisiní Ales, Asheville Bar none the best Farmhouse Iíve had. Excellent with Spinning Spider (Madison County, NC) goat cheese -- chevre and goat gouda. I canít say enough about the fine balance and quaffability of this one.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Bottle shared by theisti at his Holiday Tasting 12/28/07. Pours a hazy orange-straw with a thin, white cap. Wheat and a beautiful bouquet of soft, fruity yeast and citrus are on the nose. Very nice. Light to medium-bodied, with soft carbonation and a lightly dry and mildly sour finish. With a light wheat body, the flavor follows the nose with sweet, fruity yeast and citrus notes. This is one of my favorite saisons to date. Itís not particularly complex, but it is very, very nice and well deserving of its status among the highest rated saisons on this site. Thanks again for sharing this one with us, Tim!

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2007
750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy creamsicle color with a firm white head. Aroma is rich and strong, with strong hints of yeast and hops along with the earthiness of autumnal spices. Taste is creamy and full, with a mild hoppy flavor giving way to a long, crisp finish of malt, spice, and a slight boozy bite. I wouldnít have thought of a saison for a winter/holiday brew, but this does a fine job of making me think otherwise -- les bons veoux!

Very very nice. Sampled in the 22oz bottle. Poured very cloudy with a thick head. Taste was very smooth with a nice texture. Slight acidic flavor added to the thick malty undertones.
