COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 .

On tap at Brick Store Decatur GA. Pours dark yellow to light orange with a big off-white head. Aroma is lightly malty, earthy, and yeasty. Flavor expands on this with faint hints of orange and/or lemon peel, coriander, and a little pepper. Bitterness is low at front, and builds to a long lasting finish. This is easily the best Saison I have had.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 17, 2006
Exquisite beer. masterful example of the style. When poured it glows. Pale around the edges, almost dusty. Orange in the middle. Deep colors, hazy colors. White rocky head. nose is profoundly orange. Lavendar, cinnamon and a slight bit of cocoa sweetness. Yeasty with not much of a barnyard edge. You can tell that there is something cobweb like in there but the fruitiness overpowers. Citrus for days. Tart on the tongue at first. Tart and bitter. Lemon zest in a power packed punch. tarragon. Much more earthiness here in the mouth. Oak that fades into a soft bitter clay-like flavor. This is a masterpiece man. Great beer!

Fantastic appearence. As beutiful white head rarely seen.Fruithy and spicy. A bit more complex and abstract than La chouffe. The style of category is Saison. A wallone family brewing tradition. This was originally a new year gift to the brewers themselves but is now avaliable all year!

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2007 Cork (which pops out as soon as I take off the cage) says 2004. Poured into a tulip. Extreme head of 4 inches from very careful pour. Floral grass and hay notes. Nice gold color - head very gradually dissipating. Very full with sour apple, pepper and hops. Dry alcohol with a burn in the finish.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2006
This pours a strong golden color with a light haze and a large, bubbly head. The nose is sugary and the first taste is lightly citric and strongly grainy. This imbalance is representative of many Belgian malt brews. The light spice saves this beer from fading into obscurity. The hops, however, are nonexistant.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 Thanks to R.J. for this rec. Very nice light Belgian style. As others note, golden, fruity. Just a wonderful beer. Supposedly, not many made their way into our store here, but I need to grab another bottle soon before others do.

Avec les Bons Voeux pours to a beautiful, hazy, deep golden color with a thick, creamy, pillowy, white head, and a vibrant carbonation. The nose on this beer is very complex, with big aromas of pale malt, spicy/herbal hops, and peppery alcohol. The palate is richer and fuller on the tongue that Dupont, and has a very silky and smooth pale malty palate. This rich malt is paired with some nice estery fruit flavors, and some lift of carbonation that allows it to dance on the tongue. Avec les Bon Voeux finishes with more pale malt and fruit up front, then ends with a dry/spicy/peppery warming finish, that lingers on the tongue. This is a very delicious, very satisfying beer, that could be matched with a hearty winter dish, such as beef stew, roasted turkey, or leg of lamb. It also makes a perfect beer to relax with, as a digestif, after a big meal. This really is a big(9.5% abv), brawny version of Saison Dupont, and is one that will have you wanting much more than the 750ml bottle it comes in.

Bottled 75cl (BBE 09/2010)
Pale yellow, a bit hazy color. Good big white cloudy head. Fruity aroma of apricot and peach, some alcohol and grassy notes too. Grassy with strong presence of yeast. Yeast in the bottom of the bottle, makes palate tastier and fruity.
