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 .

my sort of beer..... oh god this just makes me weep. lovely herbal/peachy/bready aroma with prominent barnyard. a barnyard on a promontory overlooking a peach orchard - someone is baking herb bread nearby. no sign of 9.5% alcohol - no fusels or solvent in smell at all! thrusting my nose in and breathing deeply and slowly as if i’m going to sing, i smell freshly ground black pepper on top of it. fluffy nougat apricot and peach then a long, broad and green hoppy finish that goes on and on, mingling with black pepper phenols. wahey this is the stuff. for A$15 per 5.6 standard drinks it beats most cheap plonk for bang/buck at the same time as most expensive champagne for quality.

Wow, what a great Saison. The miriad of spices and fruits with a very pleasant efforvescence was quite enjoyable. Hard to drink others after this.

Pours a golden orange haze with a thin foam head. Floral bouquet with hops and spice on the nose. Has some characteristics of Chouffe. Sweet cabonated taste with bitters and grass on the back end, slight hint of lemon zest. Very taste. Has your typical saison feel with more body, thicker mouthfeel. Great saison.

Bottle 750ml from Parkhill cellars. Exceptional, yeast-driven. Aromas of caramel, cheese, apple, and orange. Taste is sweet and sour, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Orange, with a frothy head.

Cork exploded! Pours a hazy golden/honey color with a huge foamy white head...outstanding retention and lacing. Aroma has delicate hoppy spice, leather, faint honey. Flavor follows suit...such delicate balance of flavors...near perfect...just a hint of fruitiness...raisin as it warms. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is spicy/fruity/leathery and dry. Excellent saison.

One of the best saisons in Belgium. Tart with a grapefruity aroma, slightly funky, yeasty flavor, and a really nice mouthfeel. Nice carb.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 Znakomite piwo, zwłaszcza jeśli chodzi o prezentację. Wspaniale wygląda, świetnie się nalewa, trzeba bardzo ostrożnie bo spore nagazowanie. Gigantyczna piana i super trwała. Aromat biszkoptowo-jabłkowy. W smaku owocowo-biszkoptowe z lekką słodyczą. Finisz rozgrzewający i uderzający do głowy. Polecam zwłaszcza na świąteczną zimową aurę.

Cloudy golden colour, some white head;aroma of yeast and sourish/sweet fruits with some well hidden alcohol; marvellous taste of citric sourness and hoppy(maybe a bit grapefruit) bitterness with spicy flavours and minimal alcoholic sweetness; dry aftertaste; perfect beer on tap at Csakajósör - many thanks to the owner!

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.
