COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bons Vux (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 .

Bottle (750ml dated 2005). Shared with my friend Alan, his bottle, from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo. Poured murky orange with a huge white pillowy lasting head, beautiful lacing and continual bubble action. Aroma of dry funky yeast and hops, very very herbal and sharp - really nice. Taste - herbal, fresh grain, alcohol, yeast, wow, this is complex, thick, astringent, nicely carbonated and damn the best saison Ive had.

Tried this last night @ Bier Stein - As Mr. Burns would say, Excellent...This is quite a badass Saison. Pours golden and grainey, with a monstrous white cloud like rocky head. Wonderfully citric and tart in the nose, this is like smelling a new leather wallet, mixed with lots of dry fruit and other assorted yeasty characteristics. Flavor is nicely spicy and herbal, this would be wonderful when used with a food pairing. Crisp and tart, with alot of citrus and corriander, lots of fresh grassiness and horse saddle sourness and again with the dried fruits. A treasure!

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2006 Excellent saison. Pours golden with a thick head. Aroma is an assult of fruit and yeast. Flavor a very striking bite of rotten fruit and strong aromatic herbs. Great beer on tap.

JugOPunch (83) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - APR 19, 2006
750 ml bottle: Outstanding rocky white head that lingers. Nice aroma of yeast citrus and a mild spice. Good creamy body and smooth textured mouth feel with a little less crispness than I expected. Better as it warms with a more rounded flavor of lemon and coriander. Nice and dry. No alcohol. Bitter on the end. Delicious.

Very dry, yeasty, slighly fruity. Extremely pale pour, with no noticable alcohol. Relaxed palate, slightly creamy, very drinkable. Nice funkiness and barnyard in the taste.

25.4 oz bottle. Cloudy, sunny yellow with a big white poof of head that settles to a thin layer. Some black bits? Dentist office, apples and pears. Taste is similar with some lemon, pepper and usual funk. Smooth carb; less than it would appear.

Bottle. Hazy buttery yellow, maybe a touch orange too. Lemony citrusy aroma, with plenty of grass and some spice. Lemony ctirus spicy flavors, some candied fruits, and some earthy grass. Warming. Tart and a bit acidic.

Was thrilled to pick this up for the Holidays. I love Saison Dupont, so I was really looking forward to drinking this one. I was definitely not disspointed. The head and lacing were world class. Aroma was very yeasty, grassy/hay, and really spicy. Before I tasted this baby I thought it might be too spicy. I was wrong. It was nice and tart and not too spicy. It would be hard to drink more than one of these and still be able to talk, but Ill try. Ill be interested to learn how six months in the cellar will affect this one.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2006 From bottle, poured at the 2006 Pizza Port 12 Hour Belgian Beer Party. Pale, slightly cloudy yellow colored pour with a really tall, frothy white head. Slightly yeasty aroma is saturated with granny smith apple skins and rose petals; a delicate perfume that proves less can be more. Slightly bitter, herbal flavors of celery root, parsley stalk, and an abundance of springtime clover. Some soft orange blossoms and a bit of shaved nutmeg and peppery spice. Finish is clean, quick, and crisp, with an abundance of lemongrass and a hint of lime peel.

Murky golden with a lovely meringue white head. Lemon lots of yeast. Quite alcoholic maybe a bit too much so for my tastes. Otherwise pretty good stuff. The yeast is the start here. Very dry and bubbly palate.
