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 .

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2007 On tap into Duvel tulip, somewhere in the LA area. Hazy pale yellow with a thick fizzy foam head that’s large. Glittering, uniform and sticky lacing, ok racing. Smells like yeast, cobwebs, lemon zest and spruce. Tastes like cloves, lemons, limes, and yeast with corriander in the finish. Kind of watery, and I would have liked a bit more carbonation. Better than average, but not better than that, in my opinion.

1998 Vintage!!! When I first poured the bottle it was a strw yellow with a teeny tiny bubbeled froathy white head, and a bazillion bubbles climbing the walls of my glass. When I finally got the rest into my glass, I got all the yeast. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing. It has the horsey Belgian smell, with some Granny Smith apples thrown in for good measure. The taste is great. Pepper and apples and doughy yeast goodness. The after taste has a light lingering alcohol thing going on that works well. I would drink this everyday if I weren’t buzzing so hard now!!!

Simple sample still superb. Fine & funky, fruity and, and and Okay enough alliteration or whatever. That this stood out in a tasting of other equally fine beers is definitely something of a testament. Or maybe I just liked the label.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2011 Draught at The Blue Monk, Buffalo, NY. Pours a cloudy orange with an average size diminishing white head. Very nice aroma of Belgian yeast and fruit foremost followed by light hops and spices. Flavour’s the same, and just as nice, of Belgian yeast and fruit along with spices and a dry bitter finish. An exceptional beer.

Bottle shared with GregClow, tupalev & jerc -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a dark murky yellow with a big white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma of citrus, yeast, hay and spices. The taste is wheaty, floral and mildly spicy. This is a typical Belgian in my opinion, it’s good but not really my thing.

750 mL bottle, corked & caged (2002 labeled cork, sampled June 2005): clearing golden pineapple with a mostly full and slightly diminishing starchy white, tight bubbled foam. Tingly esters filled with honeycomb, rose petals, sweet pale malts, and slightly sour golden raisins. There is a light astringency from the hops, but it’s evened out by creamy green apple sweetness and vanilla yeast complexity. Fluffy and moist doughnut finish – spicy yeast and creamy, vanilla icing. Not quite as dry as I was expecting in the finish which works phenomenally well with the subtle fruitiness and the yeasty ester. Extraordinarily tasty. Wow.

Bottle shared with blankboy, tupalev & jerc - courtesy of tupalev. Hazy golden colour with a big, foamy head. Aroma of yeast, coriander, and a faint hint of barnyard. Flavour is very nice and refreshing - citrus, coriander, clove, and a great bit of peppery heat in the back of the throat. The finish is dry and nicely hopped as well, moreso than you might expect from a Belgian. Really great, it’s got me jonesing for the regular Saison Dupont that will be hitting the stores in Ontario soon...

Bottle, courtesy of Boutip (thanks!). Lat beer of the night in a decent 21 beer tasting. Highly pressurized cork (the beer or Canada Post?). Hazy yellow, big fizzy white head. Subtle coriander aroma. Strong almost wheat like taste - citrusy malts and spices abound. Well carbonated. Really nice and refreshing. Subtle, yet present alcohol. This one is a winner and a great choice to end the night with.

Okay first, I got a nailed in the forehead with the cork, thank goodness it didn’t hit my eye. 750ml bottle via Mullman, thanks! Pours a slightly hazed glden hue witha huge foamy head and oustanding lace. The aroma has notes of apricot, tangerine, hayfield, dusty musty cellar esters, coriander and pepper, and a woody character. The taste starts quite floral and even a touch hoppy. I get a lot of yeast background from this beer and a nice dose of oak. The finish has a wonderful spicy note and the citric nature comes rushing forth. The feel is quite lively and very refreshing, almost too much as I had finish most of the bottle before I knew it. This is a world-class brew, no question about it. Gosh how I fell into the magic that is a great saison. Very much recommended!

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2005 Thanks a lot hey_kevin. Pours a light gold with a huge white head. The aroma is hay with some butterscotch and oak. There is also some of that subtle oraganic barnyard. The taste is hay with grass and fresh chocolate. There is also a subtle spice of corriander. Plenty of carbonation. Absolutely wonderful beer.
