Notes / Commercial Description:
Les Bons Voeux means best wishes, which is what Brasserie Dupont sends with this very special saison ale brewed for the holidays. Redolently aromatic, rich and velvety.

Rich gold color, fragrant (lemony with hints of pepper, banana and clove), as all the beers of Dupont are with a full, deep malt richness that lingers on your tongue for what seems the whole holiday season. Considered by some the finest offering from this unparalleled Brewery. “The best Belgian beer, if ever there could be such an award...a sumptuous, seductive 9.5% beer. Because of it’s intensity, I would recommend the novice graduate to this beer. However, if a saison that is starting to lean towards being a triple appeals to you, and if its in season, don’t hesitate.”

This beer is exactly what my palette was looking for today. A high AVB saison that taste golden and "blonde-like". A golden color, rich floral smell, and smooth taste. AWESOME!

Serving: 750 ml bottle poured into a Spiegelau beer tulip.

Appearance: Hazy golden yellow, increasingly cloudy towards the end of the bottle. Lush, tall head of white foam that’s retained as clumpy puffs of foam and sticky lace.

Smell: Clean, welcoming aroma of freshly baked white bread (yeast, wheat), lemon zest, and spice (cloves, coriander, black pepper).

Taste: Richer, more assertive flavor; grainy malt, brown sugar, spice (clove), lemon rind, and herbal, bitter hops towards the finish. Some alcoholic heat creeps in around the edges.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, slightly oily slickness, and lively carbonation.

Overall: Looks and smells like a refreshing saison, but punches the tongue with a bigger, boozier brew with bold spice, yeast and hop notes.

A nice light golden hazy color with some head and lacing. Belgian yeast, cloves and spice hints. Well carbonated saison with a complex taste. Light bodied saison with a good balance. Very well balanced saison with a good kick.

Pours cloudy brass with a chunky, everlasting head. The glass is draped with swathes of foam on the way down. Spartan apples, fresh hay, berries, orange, peppercorns, cloves in the super complex aroma. Fruity Dupont yeast esters, bready, sweet malts, herbal, leafy hops and cidery notes in the taste. The mouthfeel is full bodied with creamy, active carbonation. The finish is lightly bitter with lots of berry, apply and tropical yeast esters in the finish. Alcohol is noticeable but not distracting.

A fantastic Saison. Super complex and covers a lot of ground. Excellent with BBQ and nearly any food I guess. A must try.
