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 .

Im sure skyway tuffs were made of dupont. They never tasted this good though. At the beer festival in Manchester, though Ive had it before from our kid. Great aroma, great taste. Fucking belting.

Pours a beautiful orange color with thick head and Belgian lace. Aroma has honey notes and citrus spice with heavy alcohol. Dry with power packed finish. This is probably one of my favorite beers of all time.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2008 Had on tap. Really nice seasonal ale. Pours golden red. Intense floral aroma of yeast, light fruits, and aromatic hops. Has a good deal of funk, but that only serves to complement the other flavors. has a great spicy funky, bready quality to it. Very smooth. Nice finish, An excellent farmhouse ale.

thanks to mcbackus for the bottle. cloudy golden color, nice big head that dissipats quickly, but leaves a wonderful lacing. Very aromatic, skunky, and sour, with touches of lemon, and pepper. Flavour is smooth, and almost a touch lambic like with the sourness. Wow, this is a great saison, easily the best of its style.

BOLTZ7555 (3018) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Aroma of skunk is a bit disappointing but the pour is intense gold with a small white head. Flavor is more robust than expected; citrus, herb, and bread. Not overly thick on the palate. A good beer but not deserving of the rating.

Thanks to Mcbackus. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is mostly funk smell, and citrus. Tastes of bitter citrus fruit, earth, little pepper, floral, and a bit of hop presence. Finishes bubbly like a glass of champagne. A tart dry aftertaste followed.

From the tap poured hazy dark golden color with very little head. Good warming fruity flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

750 ml corked and caged bottle decants a radiant golden body with an immense vanilla head. Head slowly falls into a beautiful meringue with sticky lacing sheeting the goblet. Quite the looker! Aroma of freshly sliced lemons and floral/herbal hops. Medium body with velvety carbonation. Taste is pleasantly complex. Dry and herbal, with notes of citrusy lemon, melon, white pepper, and herbal hops. Not the best saison Ive tried but certainly very well done.

MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 2, 2008
750ml poured in a trappist glass. DAlBV pours just like grapefruit with a minimal head. The nose is very minimal and has a slightly spicy citrus taste. The taste is a bit dusty and flat. There is a slight yeasty flavor and a strong grapefruit flavor as well. The palate is very dry and the finish is quick.

Draught @ the Dilly Deli. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a good sized white head that sticks to the glass. The aroma is candied malts, orange peel, belgian yeast, and corriander. The flavor is citrus, yeasty bread, sweet malt, dry finish. The 9.5 % is well hidden compared to the Scaldis I had just before. This is very drinkable whch is a bit disturbing considering the abv.
