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 straw with a thick frothy/rocky white head. Vibrant aroma of citric fruits, big grassy hops, and a bit of yeast. Flavor is big grassy/herbal hops, with some underlying citrus, and some nice yeast. Palate is full and bitter. Well balanced, and delicious.

37,5cl bottle from SIP veini- ja õllepood, Tallinn. Pours slightly hazy golden with a fairly large, white head. Fruity and slightly citrusy with yeasty notes, malt, spices and herbs. Moderate to medium sweet with complex, fruity, yeasty and hoppy flavours and a surprisingly bitterness. Certainly a tasty brew, alcohol very well integrated and quite easy to drink. Nice one!

Yeasty, fruity, boozy. Opaque orange colour with a thick head that just never disappears. Savoury, herbal finish.

DuPont Avec Les Bons Voeux 9.5% Picked up this Winter Seasonal Belgian Tripel last winter in Rome but it is widely available in Japan at all fine retailers with a better than average belgian beer selection. Pouring a dense orange-honey hold with a big aroma: tart, fruits(peach & pear), white pepper and a rich wine like character.  Fairly full bodied, it has a raspy round carbonation but finished very dry. The taste is plums, stone fruits, nuts (maybe almonds?) & some spiciness. Remarkably light flavor for a 9.5% beer. You don't taste it but you definitely get that warmth radiating from your happy stomach. Really nice stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (14326) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Keg at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, 20/11/15. Hazed golden orange with a decent off white covering. Nose is fruit cake, caramel, orange rind, light bread, yeast, trace of spice. Taste comprises bitter orange, candied fruit peel, straw, fruit loaf, caramel, light vanilla essence. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with warming alcohol. Solid well balanced affair as opposed to the usual sugary boost jus. Deserves it’s place at the top of the triple tree.

Cristobal37 (465) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 19, 2015
Lovely aroma of hops and heavy yeasty scent. Fluffy foamy head on a hazy golden yellow. Immediately tart, fresh floral and slightly bitter hops, strong yeast presence, spices like black pepper. At once simple in that you get an exemplary tripel, but also quite complex in its mixture of this doughy and spicy yeast character. Really cool. Dupont knows what’s up.

Bright orange with white fluffy head. Poured from draft as part of a flight at Compass in Chicago. Tropical and banana lemon and grassy flavor. Usually don't love this style, but I love this beer

Nel bicchiere si presenta di un bel color dorato carico velato, con sfumature arancio; generosa la schiuma, biancastra, fine e cremosa e dalla discreta persistenza. Il naso è splendidamente raffinato: luppolo, lievito speziato, lieve nota rustica; miele d’arancio, albicocca disidratata e frutta candita (pesca, arancio). In bocca troviamo note di crosta di pane, di miele, di frutta gialla (pesca ed albicocca) e di arancia; la dolcezza è molto ben bilanciata da una lieve acidità (lattica) che riesce a rendere la Bon Vœux molto scorrevole e quasi rinfrescante al palato. Porta in dote una pulizia ed un equilibrio pressoché da manuale, ed è solamente alla fine, nel retrogusto ricco di frutta sotto spirito, che l’alcool si manifesta con un morbido tepore. Stupisce per il modo in cui l’alcool viene nascosto (9,5%); il corpo è medio, discreta la carbonazione per un risultato finale molto gradevole e morbido.

Goudblond bier met lichte oranje gloed. Mooie witte schuimkraag die goed aan het glas blijft plakken. Zurig fris aroma. Granny Smith appels, beetje azijn. Goed doordrinkbaar ondanks de 9,5 % abv. Lekkere warme afdronk in de keel die goed blijft hangen. Droog en beetje plakkerig gevoel in de mond na elke slok zodat je eigenlijk niks anders kunt doen dan nog een slok te nemen. Lekker !!
