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 on sale at BevMo: Cloudy pale apricot color with a generous fluffy white head. Aroma is lightly fruity, spicy, and floral. Flavor starts fruity with over-ripe orange, a hint of lemon, a little green apple and tropical fruit followed by some yeasty spicyness and a dry bitter finish. Medium body is creamy with lively carbonation.

Poured from the 750 ml bottle into a Duvel tulip. Probably my best pour ever; the goldenrod liquid rises just above the Duvel logo and the head stretches 3 fingers upward to create a perfect convex cap just above the rim. Nice ample lacing too. Smell contains notes of lemon, green apple, yeast, coriander, grass, vinous grape. Taste evokes earthy lemongrass, straw, excellent spiciness, light breadiness, orange peel, unripe pear. Mouthfeel is great, a very refreshing beer. Between thin and medium bodied. The alcohol is never really tasted but the warmth of it is pleasant. Drinkability is wonderful, I had no problem polishing off the 750.

Miksu (5047) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2008
0.75 l bottle. Dark golden color with big long lasting fluffy head. Tart fruit, honey, herbal hops, woody spices, vanilla, coriander, lemon, orange and grapefruit in the aroma. Tart fruity flavor with lemon, grapefruit, orange liquer, honey, clove, pepper, coriander and herbal bitterness. Softer and better with sediment. Very good beer but I feel that Saison Dupont gives nearly the same complexity with only 6.5 % abv.

Cloudy golden color with a medium head. Aroma has a nice spicy, farmhousey, citrusy, bready aroma that just screams "Good Saison". Flavor has a well balanced citrus/bread/yeast mix with lots of spicey-citrus taste. Pleasant finish. The only thing surprising is the sneaky ABV that comes from nowhere to bite your ass. Good stuff!

Pours a hazy golden color with a thick white head that is well retained. Aroma is somewhat similar to a Flemish Sour, but less sour and more spicy, with some orange zest and yeastiness. Flavor is fruity and a bit sour, but as it warms the alcohol emerges. Some apple, honey, banana and pepper flavors.

Pours nicely, orange gold, looks great. Grassy notes are totally present, definately smells like a saison. Barnyard funkyness, light citrus and juicy malts early to mid palate. This brew was nice and left me licking my lips quite often.

750 mL bottle purchased at Covell Nugget in Davis, CA. 2007 vintage. Aroma is dominant with a fair amount of cereal grains, mildly cheesy fun, and floral, spicy, piney hops emanating from the glass. Also has a touch of ethanol with some yeast esters. Mild to moderately hazy honey-colored body with a nice, frothy bubbly white head and nice lacing. An attractive brew. Quite a carbonated start, which becomes pretty bitter pretty quickly. A great deal of herbal, spicy hoppiness is present to start. In the middle, there is definitely some cereal graininess and minute amounts of floral sweetness. Finishes with a bit of ethanol flavoring and more dry-ish herbal bitter hop flavors. A good brew, but I am not a huge saison guy.

Draft at DRE. Hazy medium gold pour with fluffy off-white head. Aroma is funky, spicy yeast, dry flowery notes, hopcitrus. The mouthfeel is velvety, very smooth, very complex, with dry floral notes coupled with spicy and funky yeast notes, plus a solid hop bill, and some citric fruity flavor qualities. This one is a very nice saison.

golden pour with no real head at all. mostly malts and spices on the nose. very interesting taste that i can’t quite place besides the bitterness.
