Bons Vœux is a blonde Christmas beer by brewery Dupont. The beer’s full name is « Avec les bons Vœux de la brasserie Dupont », which means « With the best wishes of the brewery Dupont ». This beer has been around for almost 50 years. At first it was a special beer that was given as a new year’s present to the brewer’s best customers. And although they still do that, they have also started to commercialise this “gift” on popular demand.
Bons Vœux has a dark blond color, a rich and hoppy aroma and a taste which nicely balances between bitter and fruity. The beer gets this unique aroma and flavor through a long process of dry hopping. It can be kept in the cellar for many years. The re-fermentation in the bottle will continue for a long time after you buy it, and it will result in a richer and fuller flavor as the years go by. The beer has an alcohol content of 9.5%.
Serving temperature: 4-12°C
