COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boskeun is the nickname of Jo, one of the two brothers who preferred to brew blond beer at home. It is a special Easter beer, one of the first real Belgian Easter beers. (Slaghmuylder's paasbier being first). It has been brewed with pale malt, Golding hops, cane sugar and refermented with native honey. As it is a seasonal beer we suggest not to keep it eternally. The name Boskeun means rabbit of the wood (virgin wood, maybe?) and the label shows it, sampling the last brew.

Trevlig gyllene blond risig färg. Som AM's skogaholmslimpor right under your nose! Söt smak. Fjällbrynt messmör - släng dig i väggen! Doften är söt, bördig malt, jästig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Bottle) Cloudy orange body with a large frothy eggshell head. Aroma is fruit (pear), hint of bubblegum, pale sweet malt. Medium body, very carbonated, oily. Flavor is sweet pear and peach, black pepper and other spices, yeast, and warming alcohol; light and balanced bitterness. A fun drink.

thanatosti (1077) - NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2015
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought from a colleague. Hazy dark golden with a white head. Sweet caramel and honey aroma, with some yeast. Taste is at first cloyingly sweet but the bitterness follows quickly. Mouthfeel is sticky, alcohol s very well concealed. A bit too sweet for my taste but worth the try.

sir__v (881) - Lille, FRANCE - APR 5, 2015
Bottle from Deconinck, Vichte - BE. Color: hazy/cloudy dark blond beer with yeast particle, small carbonation and medium persistant white foam. Smell: caramel and malt domination. Sweet, sugar cane notes. Butter, caramel and toffee... very amazing. Yeast finish and small sour presence. Taste: very smooth on mouth and malty. Good toffee and caramel taste and well balanced of bitter. Sour and caramel finish. EXCELLENT ! Aftertaste: caramel, malt and sour notes. Yeasty. Small alcohol finish but not disturbing the degustation. For me it’s look like the spring Stille Nacht, easier to drink but with the same notes ! Thanks Kris !

Lukasmh (353) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 3, 2015
Tap. Pours a clear golden with regular white head, quite creamy. Aroma is really reminiscent of a triple. Sweet flowers, yeast, fruity, light malts, some citrusy tang, candied sugar. Some sweet mandarins and hint of alcohol. Taste is sweet. Light malts, fruity, slight citrus, subtle pepper. Has some honey texture and slight bitter and dry hops in finish. Bit boozy.

Spicy, herbal, citric, yeasty and all in all very nice. The alcohol is well hidden, although there is a slight alcohol sensation. I like it alot.
