COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 .

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle from Knightly Spirits. Pours a copper color and small white head. The nose is creamy vanilla and subtle citrus and spices. Flavors include grains and creamy wheat with a slight bite of alcohol. Medium/full body and medium/full carbonation. Saisons are my favorite style due to their complexity, but this brew was quite generic and uninteresting.

MrBunn (2789) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Sample on tap at Vintage Estates. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a decent-sized, fizzy head. Aromas are spices, lemon and grass, without the buttery sweetness that drives me away from some of the other saisons. Flavor is nice enough, but Im thinking that saisons arent my cup of beer, so to speak. It is fairly light, driven by the grass and light fruit, but rather uninspiring as far as I am concerned. It is strange to me that this is 9.5%... you would never guess it from the flavor.

Joakgust (1422) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2009
Hazy light orange beer with a large lazing head. The aroma is typical saison with malty notes and hints of spices, belgian yeast and citrus. The flavor is rather light and malty sweet with hints of some funky ripe fruits. Very typical saison which is not the type of saison I prefer. Ill have to get another for storing...

On tap at the Flying Saucer. Gold in color and a little hazy with a decent sized white head. Aroma is of hops, heavy spices and fruit. Taste is of fruit, citrus, and spices with a decent alcohol warmth.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Ft. Worth. The look is murky, copper colored, decent off white head. The smell is yeast, spices, fruit, lemon, and orange. The taste is yeasty, fruits, spices, wheat, decent alcohol burn at the end.

Bottle: Hazy yellow colour, with a nice creamy head. Aroma of citrus, flowers, sournes, som maltynes in the end. Flavor is fruity, citric, flowery, and a nice citric/sweet mix in the end. Medium to full body, and a nice medium fruity/sweet/citric finish. This is a great beer!!

Draft tulip at FRTH, Denver. Poured with a nice golden appeal and a nice esthery nose. It drinks with a bubble-gummy spiciness, and ends with a stark dry finish. (#3512, 2/19/2009)

Bottle. Very good, but I like the regular better. The holiday spices were good. Nice and floral. Alcohol seemed to be a bit more present in this version.

cheap (5704) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Dont ask me why. On tap at the Vintage Estates in Boardman. Pours pale yellow and slightly hazy. Sweet, somewhat volatile aroma. Thick white head fades to a tea froth in a few minutes. Fairly strong attitude on the tongue. I would have guess this to be a strong ale style, not saison. Though it does not come across like 9.5%. Flat with little if any, detectable carbonatuion. Finish is a stronger belgie ale character. Alky laced linger. One of the better high alky brews Ive tasted.
