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 .

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - FEB 4, 2008
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.

750ml - Cloudy gold, fizzy head, hoppy bitterness and acidic seltzer mouthfeel. Perfect balance - superior.

beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JAN 28, 2008
This saison pours a cloudy deep peach orange color form a cork-finished 750ml bottle. Large sized, long lasting white foamy head, with good retention and excellent lacing. Aroma is fruity, spicy and floral. A medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity; lots of orange, green apple and lemon fruitiness give way to spiciness and grassiness. A little yeasty as well. A little hoppy for a saison, but it works, that hop bite balances and mixes well with the fruit, spice and yeasty. Lively carbonation. Hides the 9% alcohol well. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and nearly bone dry. Aftertaste is slightly tart.

papajohn (1250) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JAN 27, 2008
750 ml bottle on sale at BevMo: Cloudy pale apricot color with a generous fluffy white head. Aroma is lightly fruity, spicy, and floral. Flavor starts fruity with over-ripe orange, a hint of lemon, a little green apple and tropical fruit followed by some yeasty spicyness and a dry bitter finish. Medium body is creamy with lively carbonation.

illidurit (2324) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Poured from the 750 ml bottle into a Duvel tulip. Probably my best pour ever; the goldenrod liquid rises just above the Duvel logo and the head stretches 3 fingers upward to create a perfect convex cap just above the rim. Nice ample lacing too. Smell contains notes of lemon, green apple, yeast, coriander, grass, vinous grape. Taste evokes earthy lemongrass, straw, excellent spiciness, light breadiness, orange peel, unripe pear. Mouthfeel is great, a very refreshing beer. Between thin and medium bodied. The alcohol is never really tasted but the warmth of it is pleasant. Drinkability is wonderful, I had no problem polishing off the 750.

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2008
0.75 l bottle. Dark golden color with big long lasting fluffy head. Tart fruit, honey, herbal hops, woody spices, vanilla, coriander, lemon, orange and grapefruit in the aroma. Tart fruity flavor with lemon, grapefruit, orange liquer, honey, clove, pepper, coriander and herbal bitterness. Softer and better with sediment. Very good beer but I feel that Saison Dupont gives nearly the same complexity with only 6.5 % abv.
