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 .

Hazy gold color with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is a little tart and yeasty and hay is what mostly comes to mind. Flavor is coriander and spice and a little bit of funk ever so slightly. Finishes really dry and quite well. Unbelievably drinkable. Enjoyed this beer a good bit.

Bottle: Cloudy golden pour with a few suspended particles and plenty of sediment in the last pour. Small, creamy white head. Complex nose is sour and fruity. Yeast. Tart and a bit funky. Tastes fruity again with yeast and light spices. Cloves and other Belgian spices. Tart and dry. Nice. Thanks Jeremy! *Just got this in a trade too and cant wait to cellar it. Thanks Tyler!

bleeng (1669) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2009
750 bottle at Papago Scottsdale AZ. Nose is effervescent, funky, farmhouse tart. Mild yellow color. Taste is light and fresh, with moderate farmhouse, horseblanket, funkiness. Alcohol is not present and the taste fades badly on the end. This did not live up to expectations for me. There just was not enough to this beer and it was slightly boring by the end of the bottle. Maybe this was an old bottle or was just not handled properly. I will try again though.

BuckeyeBoy (6546) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 16, 2009
750ml Bottle Pours out a cloudy copper topped with a tall white head. Aroma of spice and citrus all over this one. Tast was more spice, belg yeast, and bread. Even a nice fruit on it. Man this thing was loaded with flavor. Very nice.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JAN 16, 2009
750ml bottle. Hazy, dark yellow color with a big white head. Spicy, orange aroma. Despite the citrus flavor there isnt alot of acidity, very drinkable. Pretty good stuff.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2009
Deep orange pour with a thick bubbly white head. Spicy coriander aroma. Similar bitter spicy flavor. Very smooth velvety texture. Not bad, but I was a bit disappointed.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2009
Orange-golden with a thick and creamy head. Sweet and very spicy aroma. The flavour is quite special: yeast, spice and sugar dominate it with notes of peper and pear.

Draft at Capone’s 12/13/08: Poured an orange color with a thick head. The aroma was flowers, grass, honey and orange. The flavor was tasty, with sweet and spicy orange peel, flowers, funk, and yeast. Overall, one of the best Saison’s I’ve ever had.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2009
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a very cloudy, glowing orange-amber color. A small, fading white head leaves a sudsy wash on the glass, most of which returns to the body. The aroma reminds me of a woman’s perfume, very floral and estery overall, with distinguishing notes of candied orange peel, lemon zest, clove, cracked pepper, and a heap of dry, bready, bretty yeast. Flavors are bright and zesty up front, citrus again featured prominently. Pale malts and candy sugar add ample sweetness, while spicy, peppery, floral hop notes and dry, farmhouse yeast add complimentary depth. Medium-full in body, with a fine, active carbonation, the palate finishes dry to the point of being parching, with lingering floral bitterness. Overall, this is a very fine saison, but it goes a bit over the top for me. Though I like this brew very much, I prefer the normal Saison Dupont for both everyday palatability and subtle complexity.

malrubius (2694) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 4, 2009
750 ml bottle in Duvel glass. Pale hazy orange with lasting white head and lace. Spicy lemon pastry aroma. Very fresh. Bready honey melon with strong spicy bittereness. Medium body (light for the abv) with effervescent carbo and nice mouthfeel. Very assertive, complex, refreshing, drinkable and strong. One the of the best beers, period. Big thanks to Stu at Shoreline Bev for the special order.
