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 .

yespr (32032) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2007
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a slight off-white and lasting head. Spiced yeasty aroma, very classic belgian. The flavour is soft caramel blending into a more strong spice flavour. Some alcohol presence in the finish together with a bitterness. Keynote here is the balance, the beer as such holds nothing different from many other Belgians. The balance however is perfect, not to strong and not too weak eather but very smooth - nice.

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2004
A hazy orange beer with a disappearing head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of coriander. The flavor is sweet malty. This beer is boring compared to loads of others - I think I have to resample one day.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy, golden with a dense, white head. Extreme aroma of yeast and diacetyl. Fairly full-bodied with sweetish malt, a distinct yeastiness, diacetyl and fruit. Way too much diacetyl. The finish is strongly alcoholic. This was just way too Belgian - in the not so hot sense. 030407

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2011 2010-08-12, corked bottle at Ris Ras, Århus, vintage 2008, 7-5-6-3-12=33
Cloudy orange-golden color; medium sized creamy head. The aroma is difficult to decribe, it has some malt and spices and Belgian yeast, but also some vegetables. The mouthfeel is weaker than expected, and a bit dry; the combination of malt and spices produces again some trait of vegetables. It has enough bitterness; in the final the alcohol is quite evident. Possibly it was stored in some hot places for some time.

2006-11-27, Draught at Den Tatoverede Enke, 7-4-8-4-16=39
Spicy aroma (cloves, coriander), a bit fruity (mango). Good Belgian body, dry malt, spices, lemon peel, upcoming strong bitterness. Very different, but good anyway.

2004-02-21, Bottle, 5 years old, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Gold color, creamy head; nice perlage. Aroma of cellar, wood, cork, old hop flowers. Very good Strong Belgial Ale, malty, that has lost some sweetness due to the long aging; strong final bitterness.
