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 .

On tap at Tria. Like a saison but stronger. Ok, essentially its a tripel with some saison characteristics. gold orange color with a thin head and soapy lacing. Lots of Belgian yeast in the palate, a little heavier than it looks - doesn't look like a typical holiday ale but it is as robust as one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mild peachy nose. Hazy yellow, mild carbonation. Light body for the alchool. Mild fruit bread tast. Not very interesting. Well balance but boring.

Cloudy blonde pour with a finger of fluffy head. Nose complex yeasty nose of soft malt and passion fruit. Taste lots of sweet malt, yeast, fruit juiciness that lingers , with a mild bitterness making an appearance at the end. Very nice.

Butelka 375 ml, z korkiem ;) Bardzo dobry tripel, nawet nie spodziewałem się że tak znany i ceniony. Dość znaczny woltaż, takież wysycenie, dobra cierpkość na języku. Barwa miedziana, długo utrzymująca się i zdobiąca szkło piana. Porządne i godne polecenia.

Corked bottle LCBO: orange golden cloudy with small head. Nose is hoppy, herbal, yeasty with a citrus twist. The taste has layers of tropical fruits, pepper, yeast, and some smoked flavour. Full bodied and complex with a nice dryness. It was a little premature of me to uncork it without allowing it to bottle ferment longer in order to mellow out and harmonize its nuances. Still an exquisite Belgian.

2016 est mort...vive 2017! Je souhaite tous les amateurs de bire une excellente anne houblonne et espre que ceux qui ne sont pas encore amateurs le deviendront en 2017 et viendront agrandir la tribu des ratebeeriens. Et quoi de mieux pour fter la nouvelle anne que de dbuter par la brasserie Dupont "Avec les Bons Voeux" qui pour ceux qui ne le savent pas encore taient une bire traditionnellement offerte en dbut danne par la brasserie pour remercier leurs bons clients. Bon client je le suis assurment. Cest dailleurs un de mes premiers coup de cur brassicole qui aprs des annes passes dans le ct obscur du vin, me montra le bon ct de la force. Mais ressentir la force nest rien si guid par un matre Jedi vous ntes pas. Et 2016 fut pour moi riche dune grande rencontre, brassicole tout dabord et qui me permet actuellement dapprofondir cet art, mais avant tout une rencontre humaine, car cest la force de la bire que de pouvoir faire natre des amitis. Mais revenons nos Bons Vux. Quoi de mieux pour dbuter lanne de faon enleve pour une anne Rockn Roll. Car cette bire est Rockn Roll : race, puissante avec ce brin dexcentricit qui font les grands groupes ou musiciens. En verre, on sent lhabit des grands : costume blond dor taill pour la scne. De lnergie revendre avec une forte effervescence, une multitude de petites bulles et la grande classe avec sa mousse blanche de deux centimtres dpaisseur. Dans les gradins, lambiance se fait dj ressentir...lectrique...dans latmosphre on peut dj ressentir la fois de la puissance avec lalcool mais galement de la classe avec des armes floraux, dagrumes sur un fond de crales et candi. Que le concert commence! avec une introduction basse et clavier : une attaque sur une une mlodie lgrement suave pare de crales, dagrumes et candi. Entrent alors en scne guitare et batterie pour enlever tout cela et donner de la puissance notre composition : lamertume et lalcool vont crescendo, lenvole est exceptionnelle, avec un vibrato de nuances poustouflant. Les basses et le clavier toujours prsents, marquent tout juste leur prsence pour une arrire bouche sur des notes de crales et de candi afin daccompagner lensemble. Lquilibre est parfait, et tel un solo dun grand guitariste, les variations sont sans limites, mais toujours dans le respect de la mlodie et du rythme. Le final finira par un riff sur les pices et les fruits confits terminant en beaut le concert....Le 5 nest pas mme suffisant. 500?! Cela me parat plus raisonnable, surtout pour ma 100 me bire belge. Je pourrai vous recommander de la dguster sur une cassolette de fruits de mer, mais jai plutt envie de vous conseiller de la dguster en coutant les Kaiser Chiefs, et surtout de la dguster entre amis. De mon ct je la dgusta avec un grand ami belge, prsent par lesprit. Avec mes bons voeux!

From the corked, caged 2016 750 ml. bottle. It pours a cloudy amber-orange beneath a long lasting white foamy head. I see some sediment. The aroma really highlights the breaded, yeasty, herbal, and spicy characters of the style. But also I find a touch of grape or other juicy fruit under it all and there is no alcohol scent for 9.5%. Medium or better body. There is a more spicy flavor with a little bit of grape or citrus twisting underneath. Same as the aroma - no booze in the taste. The peppery bite at the end is quite extraordinary. Very nice.
