COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bons Vux (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 .

FatPhil (13067) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 28, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2014 750ml bottle (Porvoo Harvest/Dark Beer Festival 2007) (5:2:7:3:14=3.1)
hazy rich yellow, thin to no head. light sweet malt and spicy aroma. quite lively in the mouth. a good sweet malty body, but a wickedly peppery hoppiness quickly comes over. A tad alcoholic.
Rerate: 375ml bottle (Schrammi Keller, Tartu) (7:4:6:3:13=3.3)
Totally massive aroma - its belgian tripel exploding all over the place, the glass cannot contain it at all, has the perfumey aspects of a tripel, but theres a lovely saisony aspect, a spicey sharpness, too - thats the Dupont terroire which makes their saisons so good. Taste initially has quite an alcoholic kick, but after a few sips that just fades away. Its a lovely back-to-its-roots belgian ale, has a nice perfumey grain and noble hop component, but the saisony grunge is there too. Finish just has a light white pepperiness to it, to accompany the sweet grains. Shame about the alcohol, its in that Le Trappe territory, it could be called a quad at this boost.

On tap at Bottleworks, pours golden with a white head. Aroma of yeast, hops and bready malts. Flavour of barnyard funk, and strong bitter hops that lingers. Very well-crafted.

Bottle @ home. Yellow / orange color, large white head. Decent smell, nice taste, good carbonation and medium body. Better then expected, feared it would be winey but its more like a tripel.
