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 .

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2011 I have not been a big fan of the Dupont beers that I have tried. Sampled on draft at Zeno’s in State College PA this beer poured a very cloudy tan color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is light with banana and bubblegum elements. The flavor starts sweet and fruity with a bit of an alcohol burn and has a tangy fruity finish that turns a bit dry towards the end.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2005
750 mL, snifter. Murky amber-orange hue with a tall, rocky, meringue white head. Musky and slightly funky aroma embraces, backlit by a soft floral warmth. Sweet notes of sugared apples. A crisp tone not much unlike freshly pressed linen. Fresh bananas liven the occasion. A dry spice, nutmeg perhaps--and finished by the earthy aroma of a wet, deciduous forest. Flavor is a sublime translation from the aroma; sweet flavors coming up front and a drying, bitter, spicy and funky finish. Medium-full body with a soft texture and lively carbonation.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2005
Hazy golden yellow tinged with pink when viewed from the right angle (not a right angle). A wrinkled, pillowy duvet of suds stretches over the top. Lots of pils malt in the aroma, very doughy, light evergreen and coridnader/black pepper spiciness. Flavor is lightly doughy and more pepper. Heavy spiciness with some light banana liqueur. High carbonation and a "hot" bitterness make for tingly finish.

shadey (1867) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 24, 2005
Cold. Hazy mellon color with a nice big white creamy head. Big spicy aroma even when cold. Palate is harsh on the mouth while cold, but easier as it warms. Scrapingly dry. Mild fruity/wheaty flavor. Nice stuff.

pfhyde (54) - Davis, California, USA - NOV 20, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2005 Tan colored, slightly fruity, high effervescence, slight yet pleasantly bitter aftertaste, and overall well balanced. It smells similar to pilsner urquell, and in taste has a few similarities, but is far superior. It definitely needs appropriate glassware. I lowered my rating a bit after having a second bottle, which I thought unbalanced in its bitterness. Make sure you don’t let this sit too long--it goes flat quick.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Bottled. Murky, pale yellow color with a GIANT white head that looks much like stiffly beaten egg whites even after 5 minutes in the glass. Yeasty aromas of banana and apples. Spicy taste with notes of lemon grass, apples, bananas. Dry finish with no hop bitterness.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. Nice light fruity aroma. Flavors were pears, lemons, bananas, some citrus, and spices. Finishes a bit abruptly. Top notch saison!
