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 .

Nephilium (1628) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2007
2006 bottle. Pours a beautiful hazy light amber, with a big fluffy head. Standard saison aromas of earth, floral notes, and a touch of sweetness. Surprisingly sweet flavor, with crisp carbonation to cleanse the palate. Finishes with a touch of tartness. The alcohol content is not noticeable at all, which makes this very dangerous. Drop the ABV by about 5%, and this would be an excellent sessionable saison.

Unclear orange gold. Frothy lasting off white head. Great yeast character - prominent but not overstated. Plenty of spice/pepper but not sharp. Mild to moderate fruitiness. Alcohol is well hidden. Very nice.

On tap. This is a style of beer I adore! Hints of wheat and fruit in the nose and on the tongue; wonderful. Very smooth, no harshness. I have been drinking IPAs and APAs recently; little did I know I was missing a beer like this! Stunning in all regards.

Al palato stesse caratteristiche con coda amaricante erbacea e paglierina mista a piccante etilico. Corpo pieno, molto carbonata.

tightslice (773) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle from Beltramo’s in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma of slight funk, hay, summery fruits, some earthy effervescence. Taste is light fruit, some cereal, a little earthy and peppery. This is classic and straightforward.

Panzerfaust (778) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 6, 2016
375 corked green bottle from Beervana. Pours a cloudy pale orange color with a massive white head that diminishes faster than expected and laces irregularly. Intensely aromatic mixture of floral and fruity character with some nice yeast profile. Highly complex combination of notes: papaya, prickly pear, mellon, flowers, honey, intense pale fruity esters, strong spices like pepper and clove. Note after note it unfolds slowly. Rich and wonderful. Taste is quite dry, spicy and fruity as a Tripel should be, although a bit different and... "Saisony". Flavors of cereals, mellon-pear, lemon, dry honey, pepper. Fruit and dryness. Sweetness, tartness and spiciness, intermingled in an almost sublime embrace. Medium body, soft carbonation. Brewed to near perfection. Almost no Funk so more Tripel like than Saison like to me. If I had to guess I would have guessed an ABV of around 6% ABV. Unbelievable integration of alcohol. Great aftertaste. A highly-complex, balanced and lovely Tripel by Dupont. A slight twist on the style and one of the best Tripel specimens in the world.

BlazerT (418) - POLAND - MAY 5, 2016
Bottle. Golden, medium hazy with medium, white, semi-densed head. Poor lacing, medicore head retention. Nice, fresh, yeasty, bready, hay and spicey (season-like) aromas - mostly peppery and notes. Interesting clear vinous profile. Taste is medium bitter - empowered by spicey notes, balanced with high malty sweetness. Light to medium body, high carbonation, creamy texture. FInish is yeasty, hay and fruity.spicey. In overall unconditional, interesting and balanced tripel. very refeshing and drinkable.

Bottle enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, big frothy white head. Smell of fruity yeast esters, cardemomme, a distinct unexpected berry aroma, hints of funk, light malts, spices, grass, complex and inviting. Medium sweet, yeast fruityness, alot of spicy flavors, cardemomme, pepper, cinnamon, clove, quite complex. Quite dry, very enjoyable. Moderate bitter, grassy tail. A fantastic beer, and it adds new dimentions to the tripel style as well

Hazy light copper body, medium lasting head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, yellow fruits, spicies, black peper, alcohol. Flavours starts floral, then belgian yeast, black pepper, spicies, fruits, bisctuit, alcohol, verry complex. The bitter backbone is felt.
