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 .

Extremely winey. Pours a nice smooth yellow with head, but looks and tastes more like a wine than a beer.

neongolden (852) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2015
(375ml 2014 bottle from Systembolaget, cellared ~1yr) Pours a lightly hazy medium gold with a pillowy, lasting white head and lots of lace. Aroma has a core of lightly sweet malt with a bunch of wheat character and a little fruitiness, coriander, wet grass, citrus peels, peppery/lemongrass sort of hop/phenolic mix. Palate is light to moderate sweet to start with a touch of caramel, orange, peach, wheat, transitioning into a more dry and bitter middle with coriander, dry grass, citrus peels, fairly aggressive spicy phenolics. Phenolic, herbal bite lingers into the finish, which has a bit of bread/biscuit and dustier yeast notes as well, some hop bitterness, alcohol heat, and grass in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with high effervescent champagne-style carbonation. A good phenolic rather than estery tripel with a hop bite, but also too much alcohol present, even after a year’s ageing. Perhaps this takes even more time to settle down?

la Bons Voeux est une bière belge à la robe blonde cuivrée, trouble et à la mousse blanche crémeuse. Le nez présente de beaux arômes de houblons et d'épices, notamment sur la coriandre. En bouche, le léger moelleux en attaque laisse peu à peu place à de belles notes maltées avant un final amer.

Nez: Malté, citron, pin, floral Bouche: Maltée, citron, épicée, herbacée, pin Bel attaque fruitée avec une amertume moyenne longue en fin de bouche et une légère astringence. Une triple fruitée bien réussie dans laquelle on ne sent pas trop les 9.5 degrés d’alcool en bouche.
