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 .

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.

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.

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.

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.
