Dupont Avec les Bons Voeux

This beer had a slightly cloudy, orange appearance and a distinct lemon smell. Wow, the head had a strong alcoholic taste and was bitter. Fortunately, the beer itself was quite balanced. Overall, it had a bright taste with some bitter overtones. 10:39PM ET

Having had some in the bottle leftover from yesterday, I had the rest and thought that the flavors had settled nicely. In fact, I had even left the bottle uncorked.

The Bons Vœux is a blond top fermentation beer with refermentation in the bottle.

Since 1970, the brewery has been brewing a special beer to give as a new years present to their best clients. (the name of this beer "Avec les bons Vœux de la brasserie Dupont" means "With the best wishes of the brewery Dupont").

Because of the increasing success, they started to commercialise this "cadeau" but kept the name. Although the demands were considerable, only a small quantity was brewed, so they had to make a reservation list, even months before new year.

This Bons Vœux is coppery blond, has very fine hoparomas and tastes bitter, fruity and mild.

Our selection of yeasts, in combination with a longduring riping process, on a “dry hopping” base, are creating a typical and complex aroma and taste.

A real refermentation in the bottle, which will continue for a long time in your cellar, result in a harmonious and well-balanced beer, full of unexpected and complex aromas.

To drink at cellar temperature (12°C) or even chilled, as an aperitif or as the companion of your paté, anguilles à l’escavêche…
