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 .

Refreshing scents of freshly cut spring grasses, complex yeasts and citron bids the imbiber a heartfelt welcome. A dense, lasting creamy head that refuses to go away only accentuates the notion that this is a saison to be reckoned with. The balanced golden sheen, the profound hoppy profile and a hearty 9,5% ABV delivers an artistic punch that lingers on long after the final zesty drop has been savored. A classic.

Goodgrief (2016) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAY 13, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2012 Re-rate 2/2012 - Ive had this many times now. This is far and away the best saison. Its practically perfect. The funk isnt "weak" like I said originally. Great beer. Bumped up from original 4.1. ORGINAL - Pour was orange straw with nice head and lacing. The aroma was weak funk. Man, this is one rich and creamy beerexcellent mouthfeel. The flavor was tart fruit, a very mild level of spice and a mild barnyard funk. This is a different kind of saison, but I really enjoyed it!

smith4498 (3575) - Miami, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Pours hazy straw color with big white head. Nice sweet bready aroma. Earthy, musty flavor that is slightly sour. Medium body with average carbonation and a smooth, velvety mouthfeel that finishes dry. Excellent saison.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - MAY 7, 2008
Nice orange golden colour with a perfect white foamy head. Funky, yeasty, fruity (tropical & citrusy), a bit ethilic, peppery & spicy. Some cellar notes. A bit harsh MF, alcoholic but developing in a strong saison character.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2008 A very smooth Saison! The least bitter I have had; almost as smooth as a trippel! On tap at Publick House in Brookline, Mass. I find this style most complex and this didn’t diappoint: nice lemongrass, hay, and light leather, if there is such a thing.

tlind2 (1630) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2008
750 ml bottle. Somewhat milky golden color, expansive white head. Aroma of sweet malts and citrus. Taste is similar to their basic saison, with bright fruity notes, earthy tones, yeast, malts and a good hop balance, but with some alcohol and maybe a slightly fuller body. Very nice, but I still prefer the basic saison by a nose. Id definitely like to see how this handles some aging, though.

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Pours straw yellow with a good sized head. Aroma is fruity with hints of lemon, yeast and alcohol. Mouthfeel is thin, but lively with lots of carbonation. Falvor is surprisingly dry with more lemon, bread and yest flavors. A slight bit of funk rounds out this ale. Very nice/

wacho (52) - Izegem, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2008
Het bier dat door de brouwer zelf gekozen is als nieuwjaarsgeschenk voor zijn gasten. Het blond koperen aroma heeft een bittere, fruitige maar ook fijne hopsmaak die een lange rijpheid kenmerkt
