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 .

(Bottle). This bottle may have been quite old or tainted. It poured with overpowering frothy head. The flavor was mineral and uncharacteristic. A disappointment. Bottle was not dated to conform age. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Couleur dorée, un peu trouble, légère mousse. Nez très houblonné, alcool, note fruitée et levures. Gout houblonné, herbeux, note fruitée citronnée, alcool, avec amertume levurée assez seche en fin de bouche. Pas exceptionelle ni complexe.

rubyroo (77) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2016
Best before 04/2020. Aroma is Belgian yeast, fruit, booze, slight dank. Appearance is a hazy off yellow, pours a finger of foam that retains well. A constant bubbling from the glass causes a swell of foam in the middle. Nice sticky legs. Taste is white pepper, lemon, Carmel, booze, bread, skunk. Palate is medium bodied with some alcohol heat and warmth finishes dry. Overall- a very good triple that is complex and drinkable. Maybe a little hot.

offert par Nutjes ! Bouteilles de 37,5cl. Couleur blonde translucide avec un beau col de mousse bien epaix! Au nez c’est prennent je trouve l’alcool "agresse" trop ! Malté et citronné ! En bouche , malté , carbonnisation bien faite , mais présence de cette note alcoolique trop importante. Un ensemble qui n’est pas mes attentes.
