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.

Geurt en smaakt aangenaam kruidig, hint van peperkoekkruiden. Smaak schommelt verder tussen licht zuur en licht bitter, afrdonk prettig en ietwat romig. Seizoensbier, perfect geschikt voor de laatste wintermaanden. Een romig stukje kaas past er ook goed bij.

MrHangover (2146) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy blonde net with a big white head on top, decent lacing. Aroma is very yeasty, light booze, bready and light sour. Flavor is medium bitter and sweet. Big carbonation going on, some alcoholic sweetness going on. Some bready stuff is noticeable. Nice to drink, but it does not really stand out above the rest.

33 cl. bottle poured in to a Trappist glass. Unclear, bordering muddy dark amber colour with a huge, fluffy off-white head. Sweet aroma with spices, cane sugar, a herbal sweetness from the honey, rich, toasted caramel malts, sweet fruits, light alcohol and yeasty notes. Taste is sweet. Full body, creamy to thick texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes sweet, fruity and herbal-spicy with warming alcohol. Excellent Paasbier from De Dolle.

Keg @ De Dolle Brewery bar, Esen. Pours a light yellow with perfect carbonation and a fresh floral aroma. The taste is pretty incredible, citrus, creamy lemon, sweet malts, candy sugar.. all blended exceptionally well. I could drink this all day long.

Bottle (330 ml). Slightly hazy golden with a huge mostly lasting white head and good lacing. There’s some particles though. Aroma is yeasty with honeyed malt, floral notes, peppery presence and some fruits. Taste is also yeasty, slightly sweet with honeyed malt, light fruits and a moderate peppery finish. Some alcohol warming in the finish too. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Peppery. Good peppery Belgian Strong Ale.

SlackerMads (1259) - DENMARK - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. Hazy copper with a huge frothy white head. Yeasty nose. Flavour has honey, flowers, candy, straw, hay, plums, light stingy alcohol. Feels pretty light for the abv and the alcohol is well concealed but helps to balance the sweetness. Medium body, oily texture, high carbonation. The carbonation is a bit much, I think, but I guess it could get cloying if it was lower. One of the best paasbiers out there.
