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 .

Prufrockstar (921) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2012 Gold color, white head. Aroma is funk, light fruits (pear and apricot). Floral. Dry finish. Nice carb, medium body. Gentle alcohol apparent in finish. Had been looking forward to this for awhile. Didn’t rock me the way I was expecting, but definitely quite nice. Would be perfect for dinner parties this holiday season. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bozo_skeleton (487) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 24, 2014
Blonde dorée, petite carbo. Collet fin mais belle dentelle. Aromes complexes mêlé d’épices de poivre de fruits et une pointe âpre. Superbement équilibrée. Du fruit sur l’attaque, un final amère avec toujours cette petite pointe apre que je n’arrive pas à identifier. Bonne longueur.

Timvim (82) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle @ home 20140814. Clear golden, fluffy white head with insane head retention for the abv. Aroma is spicy and peppery, with notes of banana and figs. Taste is similar, with a complex fruitiness that goes very well with the rounded body. A nice hop bite. Mouthfeel is very smooth, almost creamy. Very very refreshing, not often I feel that about a beer this strong. Wow.

hohops (278) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
Appearance- orangey golden. Hazy. Plenty of lumps of yeast come out with the pour. One finger pure brilliant white head. Aroma is full- yeasty, candied fruits, lots of spices, banana, bready malt. Taste- starts with sweetness, juicy fruit, especially orange. Raisin, hint of banana, malt backbone, bitterness comes through in a long finish. Sweetness, spice and bitterness all come together very nicely. Quite a full mouthfeel with the perfect amount of carbonation. Really good.

tricksta_p (1062) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2014
Flavour is lots of fruits, Belgian yeast, some spices, a little funk. Flavour is fruity and yeasty, with a nice hoppy bitterness in the finish. More like a Saison than a Tripel. Excellent beer.

75cl. Hazy golden, nice white head. Will have to rerate it because the alcohol taste was overpowering and I hope this is not intended.

jamestulloch (1351) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy golden body with a thick white head. Lively carbonation. Great lacing. Aroma of sea salt, blue cheese, yeast, underripe banana and lemon rind. Flavour of lemons, grass, spice and a hint of white sugar. Dry finish. Tastes like a cross between a Tripel and a Saison. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Drinks very easily for 9.5% ABV. The flavour lasts long after each sip - delicious.
