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 .

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.

CapFlu (4651) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2006
(750ml bottle) Traded with Boutip. Wow... this is a good beer - even after the Fantome Pissenlit! The cork nearly killed me. The foamy white head nearly drowned me. The Stonehenge size sediment has dwarfed me. All while the flavours of orange zest, coriander, crazy farmhouse yeast with a subdivison of malt have sent me to the crazy house. This is a fine, fine beer! I look forward to going nuts on it again...

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Hazy gold. Billowing, creamy, off white head. Aroma of big slightly sour yeast, crisp citrus/pine hops, and grains. Flavor is must, yeast, crisp hops, grains, slightly sour, moderately bitter, underlying alcohol throughout. Dry, bitter finish. Intense brew for a saison. Balanced, medium body. Excellent. Best saison I’ve had.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Had this at BJ’s Winter Ale Fest. Beer poured a muddy dark yellow color with a large, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing head that left behind a pretty curtain of Belgian lace. The aroma was sunny, dry and spicy: light malty notes of toasted grain, moderate hop notes of resin/pine, dry straw; heavy, nice yeasty notes of barnyard, horseblanket and basement. The flavor was moderately sweet and moderately bitter with an average-length, lightly bitter finish. The flavor was remarkable in that the initial balance was extremely on, but the individual sensations were quite discernable—like hearing a tone in either ear. The body was light-to-medium, the texture was watery, the carbonation was fizzy and the was a light alcoholic twinkle at the end. A pretty beer that seems to carry a strong sense of place with it. Neat-o.

Draft at Monk’s Cafe, Philly. <P> Aroma has a nose tickling spiciness that hints at citrus rind and sour sauce. Amber with yellow tints and a nice fluffy white head. Very yeasty fore, mild sourness and a ton of floral notes that are both spicy and sweet. Another fun drinking Saison.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2006
75 cl bottle. Cloudy yellow colour with a large fluffy head. Aroma of tropical fruit, yeast and some sweet sourness. Flavour of yeast, malt, wheat, fruit, some sourness and very noteable alcohol, but still fresh because of the high carbonation and very drinkable.
