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 .

Tap at Hop Leaf, 2005: Hazy blond pour, fluffy head. Aromas of candi sugar, grassy hops, and yeast. Much sweeter on the tounge than the nose woudl initially have you believe. Sweet with intresting spice and yeasty notes. Intresting, but a bit too sweet for me.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 26, 2005
2002 750 ml bottle. Pours light tangerine with a lasting fluffy head. Nice tart, earthy aromas abound. Taste is crisp and refreshing with pepper, earth, leather and tart. Smooth and light, this stuff masks the 9.5% real well. Addictive.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 19, 2005
750 ml bottle, greedily drunk all alone...near-white whipped-cream tops a translucent, pale gold and shiny body...gorgeous mix of vanilla and sharp herbs (tarragon, rosemary, coriander), lemon-orange and a bit of oak...luscious, full mouthfeel, herbal pungency mixes exquisitely with the sweet vanilla-orange Creamsicle dessert...alcohol only vaguely present at the back end, and its muted and warming...a liqueur-like saison for the few cold nights left to us, or to bring in Spring like a true lion!

The beer disembarks the 750ml cork and caged green bottle a shining gold with a prodigious creamy bright white head that lingers for quite sometime, and the lace forms a thick and clinging blanket upon the glass. Nose has a tangy spiciness, over ripe fruit, seemed to be a mix of bananas and pineapples, crisp and clean, hints of clove also noticed, maybe even a bit of fusel alcohol, a complex one at any rate, start is sweet and the grain profile noticeable, the top is light to moderate in feel. Finish is caustic, hops are pleasantly spicy, vinous, devastatingly dry and the aftertaste welds itself to your palate, and the 9.5 percent ABV warmed my tummy noticeably, a great beer for a Sunday afternoon.

Thick , rocky head which clings to the glass, leaving an XL amount of lace. Golden sunshine body with chunks. Aroma of cheese, fruit, clove and yeast. Flavors of cheese, yeast and slightly spicy. Dry finish.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2005
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. I keep a couple of bottles cellared for holiday meals.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2005
Bottle: Poured a hay blonde looking beer with a huge white foamy head with great retention. Aroma is dominated by the floral yeast with some good strong malt also present. Yeast is very noticeable as you start sipping this beer and malt mix with spices also become more apparent as you drink. Funky aspect is quite present thought not as much as the Veille Saison Dupont. Still very enjoyable and alcohol is not detectable.

Hazy golden colour with huge white head. Strong aroma, spicey, citrus and alcohol. Taste is has tastes of fruits, yeasts, spices and alcohol. Bitter but crisp, a nice drink overall and makes you want more.
