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 .

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 26, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2007 750 ml. bottle. Pours a cloudy , nearly opaque gold with a finely structured, durable, large, white head with excellent lace. Aroma of light fruitiness, citrus, and yeast that is quite inviting. Medium body with a very clean mouthfeel, and a palate cleansing lively carbonation. Flavor shows some light acidity along with the fruitiness, and a refreshing, bitter finish. Beautiful balance, clean, what a wonderful brew! I’m getting more of this.

What a great beer. I can’t believe I waited so long to try this, and thanks to Joebrew for sharing. Powerful earthy aromas from the bottle before the beer is even poured. Grassy, herbal aroma; dirt and sediment, and some barnyard, although not as much of this as I expected. Flavor has considerable sweet malt. There is also lots of salt and some yeasty weirdness. This isn’t exceptionally complex like some saisons, but very well balanced. Although it is unusually high in alcohol for the style, it is completely hidden in the aroma and flavor. This beer also has a great appearance. Opaque gold and a tall Duvel-like head. Some sediment as well.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 25, 2006
75 cl fles, ’tht’ okt 2010. Gouden met een fijne neveligheid. Een gulle, levendige, wandklevende kraag. Aromatische hopgeur met zachte citrustoetsen en een lichte kruidigheid. De smaakaanzet is zoetig, doch snel overvloeiend naar een droge, licht fruitige, likeurachtige bitterheid met een ontzettend lange herbaalbittere afdronk. Stevige body, zeer verwarmend mondgevoel.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - NOV 24, 2006
In my quest to slowly bring my entire family into the world of craft beer, this one was a hit (even my 72 year old grandmother enjoyed it) Nice spicy and funky aroma, and I got a slight whiff of funky cheese along the way. Very well carbonated and needed to be poured in stages. Despite the high ABV, it’s very drinkable, and the alcohol is well masked. Somewhat of a muted mouthfeel (for a saison), but it was rather spicy (peppery and clove) and rather funky. Very refreshing and very drinkable. An excellent Thanksgiving treat.

A quaffable strong saison. Aroma of pepper, orange peel, and maybe a little earthiness. The aroma carries over perfectly into the flavor and is quite refreshing. But, be careful this is a deceptively smooth 9% ABV saison; you would never know the alcohol content was so high if it wasn’t posted on the bottle. It went great with a light cucumber, celery, and shrimp salad.

Complex and spicy aroma, medium body, good malt balanced by hoppy and spicy dryness, long dry finish. Strong, rich but veriy drinkable, quite an exceptional beer.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2007 First had at a festival where I probably had to much at the time of rating. Re-rate resulted in same score and similar comments. Very strong for a saison in the finish. The flavor is quite complex and spicy and certainly enjoyable stuff.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2006
Bottle (from BItter Virtue, Aug 2010). Deep golden. Peppery and zesty orange hops with firm dry malts and yeast character which at times is fruity and others has a chalky earthy character. The real highlight of this beer however is the subtle combination of flavours in the mouth and the overall feel. The firm malts provide a backbone throughout whilst the solid hop bitterness doesnt overpower the subtleties. There is an almost tart flavour which never quite develops fully but acts as an interesting counterpoint between the malt and hop flavours. With a 750 of strong belgian beer it can sometimes be a bit of a struggle to finish it but this went down the hatch quite easily.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2006 First impression after seeing and smelling the beer, I was disappointed. Very cloudy body and strong smell of skunk. Very tall head. But no skunk flavour at all, the beer taste was good. Some notes of orange and citrus. Dry finished but can taste the alcohol pretty well.
