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 .

Taste is grain, a little alcoholic kick, some mild spice, and a bit of that German beer flavor. Admittedly, I kinda assumed this was a saison when I bought it, and Im a bit disappointed that it isnt. Not bad for what it is though.

Color is between blond and amber, accompagnied by a big white head. Floral and barnyard aromas, with a hint of apple. Its mildly bitter, which makes it very enjoyable to drink. Loved it.

Fantastisch biertje. Fris, licht zoet en ook een beetje bitter. Het schuim drinkt heerlijk. Mooie matgele klaverhoning kleur. Hoe meer ik drink hoe dieper de smaak is.

1.5 litre bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear clear golden copper. Very carbonated, massive white head that dissipates quickly, not too much lace to speak of. Nose is A typical Belgian, sweet, quite a bit of booze. Tastes rather hot, dry, a little crisp biscuity malt and hop bitterness.

Bottle, 375 ml from Magic Beer Room, Zagreb. Pours unclear yellow, white head. Yeast particles floating inside. Spicy, malty, light citrus, quite yeasty. Not bad, but expected a way more.

budedou (569) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JUN 14, 2015
Orange slightly hazy beer with big white cloudy head leaving lacing. Aroma is yeasty, pale malty, tart and toffeey sweet. Flavor is yeasty, fruity and malty. Palate is full and foaming in the mouth. Finishes with mild bitterness, maltiness, yeast and alcohol. Pouring in the yeast makes the beer hazy and adds peppery yeastiness. Perhaps not in the freshest possible form, the maltiness is quite harsh and almost cardboardy.

willisread (946) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a Duvel glass. Pours a hazy golden color with a huge soapy mountain of a head that dissipates but never fully disappears. Very nice saison nose with Dupont yeast, cinnamon, nutmeg, peach, apple and booze all present on the nose. Taste is fairly similar with peach really standing out along with some muscat as it warms up. Medium to slight full body with average carbonation. Finish has strong notes of honey and is slightly warming with the booze quite noticeable in a christmas/new years seasonal beer kind of way. Finish is fruit-forward but dry with some sweetness from the honey and some lingering bitterness.

alteregoo (355) - POLAND - JUN 4, 2015
Piana biała drobno, średnio i grubo pęcherzykowa, dość trwała jak na tak wysoki alkohol, barwa złota, opalizująca. Aromat niezbyt intensywny, dominują drożdże, ciasto drożdżowe, w głębi białe winogrona, brzoskwinie, białe wino. Smak dość wytrawny jak na tripla, delikatna owocowość, estrowość i słodowość kontrowana jest sporą jak na ten styl goryczką, pestkową i fajnie maskującą wysoki alkohol, ktry praktycznie tylko rozgrzewa w przełyku pozostając idealnie ukrytym w smaku. Nagazowanie średnie do wysokiego. Charakterystyczny, zdecydowanie płwytrawny i nie słodki Tripel, bardzo pijalny i chmielowy, ze zdecydowaną goryczką, przypominającą pestki brzoskwini czy moreli. Piwo, przy dużym podobieństwie do białego wina musującego, zachowało jednak swj belgijski charakter.
