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 .

I am drinking this as I am typing. Instantly after un-corking and pouring you can’t help but notice the aroma rising up to your nose. The aroma is slightly prickly with a big blend of peach, apple, hops and a very light rum note too. The sight of the beer after pouring is stunning! A thick set white head with beautiful retention, soft and smooth looking. Sitting underneath the foamy head is a lovely golden-brown brew with a classic unfiltered murkiness. The taste of this beer is the real showpiece, it’s full of floral hops, Belgian yeast, malt and that classic Dupont edge that makes their brews so unique. The beer then slows into a pleasant lasting aftertaste of apples, pears and floral summery hops. Also the alcohol is well masked in the Bons Voeux which makes it very surprising. Great carbonation and feel on the tongue and mouth as a whole. Absolutely astounding beer which I have enjoyed a good few bottles of in the past and I hope to continue drinking this brilliant brew from Dupont. Highly recommended!

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 hazy golden with big cream head. Aroma of grass, fresh cut hay. Much more mouthfeel than I was expecting. Funky, basement flavors an boozy. Now I see why this is the "winter" saison. Remarkable beer.

Love. Amazing on draft. Got the end of the keg, so a bit yeasty, but still delicious. Would love to find one of these bottles and cellar it for awhile. - pixels sent via Beer Buddy on iOS

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2015 It’s a very unique and brilliant beer. It has the hoppiness and fruityness of a good Tripel and the liveliness and bitterness of champaign. Quite an extraordinary experience!

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

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.

This beer when I, which rarely happens, keep me and I hope to take it to me on special occasions. A complex beer with flavors amazing, fantastic tasting in the mouth, weight and balance of a result of a working brewery with great craft.

Bottle from 2015. Aromas of yeast funk, barn, fresh cut grass. Cloudy orange with huge head. Very refreshing with a nice firm bitterness. Exceptional.
