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 .

Bottle. Hazy yellow. Fruity smell, yeast, wheat and spices. Taste of bitter orange cest, fruit and a small sweetness. Little too much alcohol in the flavor.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2009
Had a minor eruption when opening the 375ml bottle so I had suspended yeast. Lets see how this goes... Warm, fruity alcohol on the aroma. Alcohol warms the mouth. First impression is sweetness but its not. More like a combination of fruitiness and alcohol that leads to it. Tapers into some maltiness and prolonged warming feeling. Leaves me wavering really but its still quite pleasant.

Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2009
375 ml bottle from Systembolaget, Karlstad. Pours a hazy orange color with a nice white head which dies after a while, but theres a small ring of foam left at the edges of the glass. Spicey, yeasty aroma with notes of orange peel, citrus, unmatured apples, banana, coriander and clove. Its also quite funky with a stable/barn like smell. Flavour is dry, pretty acidic and spicey. Notes of citrus, orange peel, unmatured apples, banana, clove, coriander and apricot. A slight fruity sweetness but most of all acidic, slightly funky and dry with a slight bitterness. Mediumbodied on the palate, filling with quite high carbonation. Quite refreshing despite the high ABV. Overall: a very nice Saison. I think Im starting to like pale belgians/saisons/tripels more and more. Or maybe I just have tasted the best examples lately? This is one of the best belgians I ever had, all categories.

Guerde (1297) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2009
(bottle, 2007) Pours orange with a large, fluffy white head that lasts. The aroma has orange peel, coriander, banana, the typical Dupont must, pepper, and bread. Theres also a toasty note that couples well with the must. The taste is lightly sweet, with flavors of peaches, caramel, and a tart note of apple skin. After these initial sweet flavors, the taste completely changes to spice and citrus. Theres a finish of orange peel, coriander, and a lingering bitter note as well. The high alcohol never intrudes in both aroma or flavor. The mouthfeel is fuller than most saisons, but it is a welcome change of pace, and I can only see this getting better with age.

Bottled. BB 2013/07
Deep, dark golden colour with fluffy head. The look of saisons is often beauitiful and this is no exception. Aroma is laid back but somewhat complex. Rich malty, with notes of marzipan, subtle peppery alcohol, fruits and spices. The mouthfeel is pretty smooth with not that high carbonation. Its slightly sweet malty, yet with a woody, dry-ish mouthfeel and peppery alcohol shines through along with those spices/herbs that are so typical for the style. I prefer my Saison to be a bit lower in alcohol, here is a blend of Blonde Belgian Strong Ale and Saison. A Super Saison perhaps? Subject of ageing it is for sure!

lamas (1630) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 30, 2009
750mL bottle from 2008. A hazy old gold pour with tons of little floaties and a HUGE light-tan head with tiny dark flecks. Funky aroma with some lemons, oranges, pepper, wheat, and freshly baked bread. A crisp, medium body with a very soft feel. Flavor starts off with a yeasty tanginess that features some oranges and hints of bananas. Finishes crisp with some dryness. A peppery spiciness and warming alcohol throughout.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Sampled at Studio 35: Cloudy yellow pour. All the Belgian characteristics here -- crisp, highly carbonated, spicy banana yeast flavor. Velvety mouthfeel that lingers on the tongue with a crisp bitterness.
