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 .

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2007
Kulminator, Draught. Hazy yellow blond coloured with some slight carbonation and a creamy average white head. Fruity yeasty aroma. Taste is creamy, fruity and little yeasty, very nice. Finish is bitter sweet, with some fruity hints and a slightly alcoholic yeasty touch. Very nice strong beer. Love it.

ALLOVATE (2540) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2007
My only addition to a small tasting we had here in Perth late last year. Tasted late into the evening, about number twenty on the list.
This poured a gold tinged, deep yellow and hazy in the light. Carbonation was very fine, raising up with force to the biggest, rockiest white head I have ever seen be retained so well. It holds like the surface of the moon and laces wildly as the beer recedes. Fruity esters in abundance - sweet banana and pineapple, tart, bitter peaches and oranges, some tight lemon - this was lovely to whiff, a literal fruit punch that just keeps releasing. It is creamy in the mouth (tasted at room temperature), the carbonation tickles but doesn’t detract from its creamy, soft mouthfeel. Tight tart fruit again here, juicy but dry and quick to draw on the saliva glands. A little pineapple and banana, not as prominent as the aroma. Musty barnyard grains, some earthy, woodiness and good ol’ house yeast flavours settle in comfortably amongst the fruit. Peaks with confidence, a fruity bitter, bite on the swallow, becomes sour and dries out for the considerably long, quenching length. Alcohol - you’d be forgiven in thinking this was an N/A beer as it was not in evidence for both warmth and feel. This is Summer in a bottle, perfectly balanced, juicy but dry, bitter, tight, lovely. A great Saison!!! (75cL, BBE 07/10, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

Capa (2209) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 Pours an attractive hazy golden orange color with large pillowy head. Aroma of grass, hops, candied fruit, citrus, and some spices. Mouth is smooth and goes down easy. This really tastes great. Candied fruit yeast, spices, and slight biscuit maltiness. Some alcohol in the finish. Big fan of this beer.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2007
Bottle. Dark yellow with huge white, creamy head with excellent retention and funky lacing. First the aroma is dominated by hay and grass from the hops, as the beer warms fruity and complex aromas reveal themselves presenting with lots of yellow fruit (apricot, plums, lemon and apple). Flavor is very dry and a bit sour, but dominated by almost biting bitterness in the finish. A little bit of fruity sweetness is also felt in the aftertaste. Lively, but nonetheless, soft carbonation (is that a contradiction?) and light "fluffy" mouth feel. Long aftertaste with a little alcohol. However it does not give you the impression of being more than maybe 7% ABV. An excellent saison style ale with character and bite. Enjoyed with soup on Jerusalem Artichoke and giant shrimps.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Pours a hazed golden amber, with a long lasting and thick white head of foam. Very good lacing. Fruity aroma, slightly funky. Medium bodied an exceptionally smooth and creamy beer. There is a mild toasted or biscuit malt presence, slightly sweet and slightly funky, surrounded by a dry fruity spiciness. The last time I tried this I did not notice any alcohol presence, but I sure did today.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2007
A murky, dark orange pour with a moderately sized head. Malty, bready nose with coriander, alcohol, floral notes, hops, Dupont-style yeast and a certain pepper-like spicyness. Nice spicy yeasty taste, pretty fruity for a saison. Definitely on the dry side. Almost no tartness or barnyard funk, which surprised me. Average mouthfeel, nothing special, not much carbonation though. Very drinkable yet a bit bland. Nice, but dissappointing - I expected more from a strong saison like this!

Bottle from ’02. A gift picked up in Amsterdam at De Bier Koning.Pours a pale golden colour with a stiff white rocky head like beaten egg whites.Wonderful esthery aromas emit from my glass, apples, strawberries, vanilla, pepper, dusty cobwebbs, yeast. At fisrt sip... Oh my god it’s belgian beer heaven. Beautiful fruity yeast, honey, pepper,Quite subtly complex( read I don’t have the verbal acuity to properly describe what I’m tasting)Rich full mouthfeel, perfectly carbonated. Incerdibly drinkable, no, dangerously drinkable. The best thing I’ve tasted out of Belgium.....So far.
