Bons Vux (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 .

glennmastrange (2742) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle. Moderate aromas all around. Grain and hay for the malt, lemon and herbs for the hops, musty and barnyard for the yeast, and background notes of white wine, clove and pineapple. Head is large, frothy, white, with good lacing and is fully lasting. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and very lightly bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery, and has a lively carbonation. Nicely balanced, complex and an easy drinking Saison.

Muggus69 (2229) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2009
750ml corked bottle. BB 11/2012. Served chilled in a Duvel glass...couldnt find anything more fitting. Picture perfect glass of beer presents in front of me. Rocky 2-inch bright whtie head stands strong, clumping on its descent. Body is an orange-gold with uniform haze and very fine lively beading. Spicy yeast on the nose, pepper and clove, possibly corriander and cinnamon but subdued at best. Bit of bread and vanilla, alluding to underlying maltiness, with some additional fruitiness; pear, lemon and orange peel. Faintest hint of alcohol. Smooth, big yet somewhat well attenuated body. Carbonation is high but soft, lending a nice creaminess to the palate. Alcohol is very well hidden. Sweet unfront, some white sugar and pale biscuity malt flavours. Ripe fruits follow; peach, pear, apple, orange, bit of banana, all somewhat kept in place with vanilla and clove, cinamon, nutmeg and coriander spices. Finishes reasonably bitter, a touch of grass, pepper and bread, all lingering as a sneaky warmth creeps down the throat. Would have to say this is not only the best Saison ive tried to date, but well up there with the likes of Belgian Tripel/Golden Strong ales. Bit more body than a typical example of the style, but still somewhat delicate, with an excellent mix of spice and esters/phenolics from the yeast. Damn tasty!

On tap at Aromas. Poured clear golden with a big white head. Aroma of spice, coriander, citrus, pears/apple. Taste is nicely spiced, with plenty of fruit, hop bitterness, and yeasty malt. A very well balanced brew. Body was very crisp and carbonated. Overall, a nice refreshing saison.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2009
Bottle (750ml) Cellared for 1 year. Poured golden straw with a slight haze and a large, thick, frothy, off-white head which lasted superbly. Aroma was of sweet bread with candy sugar, apples, creamy pears, lemon zest, vanilla, cinnamon and coriander. Flavor was a moderate spicy hop bitterness with strong notes of pepper, bready malts, crisp green apples, dried pineapple, lemon citrus, cinnamon, coriander, light notes of cloves and a spicy warming finish. Medium to full bodied with lively carbonation, a dry mouthfeel, syrupy texture (mild) and a good length finish.

elihapa (1552) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - APR 25, 2009
Sample pour from Bomber in to a snifter glass. So excited to try this finally! Appears light orange with a huge, frothy-clean head. Aroma is surprisingly mild; taken side-by-side it is far more mellow than Saison Dupont. Perhaps some candi sugar, funkiness, and light herbs are all I could get from the aroma. Flavor reminds me of a fine, dry champagne: mild fruitiness, hay, clove and grains of paradise-like spice, grass, and soft malt. Really a delicate beer, and excellent sipper. Finish is quite dry, the alcohol showing through dryness rather than flavor. I do, however, prefer Saison Dupont.
