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.

Beer Gonzo’s beer of the month, which I bought knowing nothing more than that. It’s a mighty powerful Belgian blonde, with a lot going on. Lots of fluffy white head and big lacing, on top of a slightly cloudy gold body. Body is full and well carbonated. Aroma has pear, herbs, Belgian esters and citrus - maybe pineapple. Taste has honey, vanilla, pears in syrup, herbs, white pepper, with a dry and bitter finish.

Moebbels (652) - FINLAND - APR 12, 2016
This has a hazy dark orange body covered by a large, fluffy cap of white foam with some brown streaks. Nose has spicy and peppery esters, honey and wild flowers. Taste is sweet and quickly followed by a rather strong bitterness that leads to a lingering dry finish. Very high carbonation and light, warming mouthfeel. Quite complex and interesting, a slow sipper.

A slightly less demanding beer than the Stille, but wow, this works well given the season. A belgian maibock? Something like that, why not... you all know it’s good.

Vestergaard (1393) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2016
On tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a hazy golden with a creamy, lasting, off white head. Aroma has anis, honey, belgian yeast-spices, hops, esters, pear, plums, vanilla, some alcohol. Taste is pretty sweet, but with very little alcohol presence at first, vanilla, spice, honey, followed by some hoppy bitterness and a hint of booze. Rather hight carbonation and a somewhat full, but for the ABV light body.

Fashawn (570) - ITALY - MAR 28, 2016
Vintage 2010 Amaretti, biscotti, sciroppo d’acero, alcuni ricordi di frutta sotto spirito. Frutta dolce, albicocche sciroppate, splendido aroma, veramente invitante e meraviglioso. Inn bocca è un tripudio di pasta di mandorle, sciroppo, pesche sciroppate, frutta dolce e mandorle che ritornano, sapore di amaretti, veramente dolce la birra, ma bilanciata dall’alcol che scalda e asciuga la bevuta, anche se rimane il sentore del dolce. Oleosa, liscia, davvero una splendida birra. Anche sei anni dopo limbottigliamento

Mooi goudgeel bier met mooie witte schuimkraag. Ik was nieuwsgierig naar dit bier gezien alle lovende reacties, maar hij valt mij zwaar tegen. Krijg direct een neus vol mout en gist tot mij en ook de smaak is grotendeels gist en mout. De zoetigheid is wel aangenaam, maar ook de tonen van honing kunnen mij niet bekoren. Niet voor herhaling vatbaar.
