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 .

Unbelievable. Had the III in bottle, slightly aged. Easily the best saison I’ve had to date. Complex, yet incredibly subtle. Not as bright or Spicy as many saisons I’ve had.

Pours a hazy to cloudy light golden with a thick, tall rocky off-white head that hangs out a while and leaves a big soapy wall of lace on the glass. Nose is mesmerizing and involves sweet honey nectar, pungent zesty peppery tart spice, sourdough, grassy and spicy noble hops, peach, apricot, and pear. Fairly sweet, fairly tart, and fairly bitter: incredibly well-balanced. Medium to light bodied, actively carbed, oily, sprite on the tongue, with a long, glorious, and bright finish. One of the most elegant and beautiful beers I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking. Fantastic.

Great saison. Stinky. Brewed like a tripel. Great beer for Christmas. You can share it if you want. I didn’t.

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!
