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.

Antonio369 (145) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2016
33 cl bottle, served in tulip glass. Poured cloudy golden with an huge foamy 4 finger off white head. Loads and loads of yeast sediments floating in glass...beautiful! Aromas of honey, lime, orange peel, pepper, bready, floral, grapefruit, strawberry. Taste: Oh wow...honey, blood orange, spices, pear, vinous almost champagne like, caramel, vanilla, herbs, grapefruit, bread with strawberry jam, fruity sugar candy. Delicious creamy and malty mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. A medium body with a long fruity, spicy and boozy finish. The high ABV is well hidden and only reveals itself in the finish. It’s been quite a while since I’ve tasted a really good Belgian beer, and the Boskeun really hits the ball right out of the park for me! Hats off to De Dolle Brouwers! Bravo!

Hazy golden pour with small off white head. Aroma of yeast, banana, honey, hops, grains and faint fruits. Taste of yeast, grains, honey, sugar cane, hops, malts and faint fruits. Full bodied, soft carbonation, creamy smooth mouthfeel, nicely balanced. Delicious beer!

Pilsnertest (37) - SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2016 Bittert, honung och jäst. Ljust bröd, hö och viss antydan av ladugård. Ganska vass i munkänslan.

KoNrRiI (1182) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

0.33 bottle. 2010 vintage
A dark, very hazy, dirty brown color with a huge white head. Aroma of dark malts, tons of dark fruits, and caramel. Taste is likewise absolutely dominated by dark fruits but features caramel, ash, and wood too boot. A full body, a creamy texture, and an almost flat carbonation. Finish is very long, once again dark fruits - it also appears old if that makes any sense. Overall the beer is good, worth a try.

PapaVillum (850) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2016
Sirupsfarvet og kraftigt ufiltreret Belgian Strong Ale med større flot tætskummende hvid krone, som langsomt svinder til landskaber. Let perlende og med masser af gærrester under sidste ophældning. Frugtpræget og let krydret aroma af koriander, gær, ananas og nektariner. Rig og kraftig smag indeholdende begge elementer: sødme og bitterhed. Indledningsvis spiller sødmen anden violin i smagsbilledet, og humlebitterheden er solid og kraftig. Længere fremme overtager sødmen billedet og humlen samt gæren er det solide tæppe på gulvet. Alkoholen er ligeså dominerende, og dette bryg skal man gå forsigtigt fremad med. Stor fyldig krop med en kraftig karbonering. Perlende mundfølelse og en olieret konsistens. Overall: Velbalanceret og humlet belgisk påskebryg med mere end et kaninspark i glasset. Boskeun efterlader dig glad i låget. 33 cl, flaske, ABV ikke oplyst på flasken, men ratebeer angiver den til 10.0 %, BB: 02/2017, købt hos Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Garrold (4111) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2016
Bottle. Trembling Madness, York. Hazy, lumpy gold. Thick, bubbly, shiny topped, lasting, white head. Nose has overripe banana. Sweet, chewy, stone fruit. Dried date, fig and such. Brown sugar. Never a hint of 10%, though. Taste is floral, honeyed sweet. Some phenolic booziness. Smooth, and rich mouthfeel. Honey sweet finish, with a much appreciated, bitter close. Could verge on too sweet, but there’s a grassy bitterness that balances things nicely.

mcberko (14074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2016
On tap at PIB 2016, pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out Belgian yeast and light cardboard. Flavour brings out loads of Belgian yeast upfront, some light caramel and booze. Tastes much better than it smells. Yeasty, fairly sweet and moderately complex. Very nice.

neepsntatties (1750) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Bottle. Colour...pale gold with a thin white head. Nose...a bit of cardboard to start but then fruity bits show as it warms. Palate...dry, full and frothy with massive fruity goodness laden with tropical fruits, dried apple, cane berry fruit leather and compote. The finish is long, dry and lightly cloying.
