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 .

JStax (3243) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Poured from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a huge white head of foam. Aroma reminds me a lot of a pilsner, but the taste is definitely more saison-like. The taste is fairly herbal and dry and grassy. Its almost sweet, but its not overly so. Soft carbonation with a definitive grassy and herbal finish. Very good overall.

(Dupont Avec les Bons Voeux) Bottle 375 ml, corked and caged, thanks to ElManana! Served into a tulip, ABV 9.5% Pours a bright golden yellow beer, only a tad hazy with lazy activity in the glass. Tall white head sitting on top, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Aroma is light yeasty,perfume, fruity and floral notes. Nice fruity taste too, some sugar, alcohol is notable, wood, apricots. Medium body with good carbonation. Very good, nice and quite complex.

Lukasmh (249) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy orange golden with big thick white head, some sediment from the yeast. Aroma is canned pears! Sweet breadth wheat, clove, subtle bubblegum and fruity esters and Belgian yeast. Taste is dangerously light and crisp carbonation with a nice creamy full body. Wheat and some lemon. Only a slight hint of booze in finish along with some spices. One of my favorites!

Tap. Very light blond with thick froth. Detectable alcohol in aroma, a bit disturbing as it appears also in the taste. Generally smooth, quite drinkable and overall enjoyable but not as great as I expected it to be.
