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.

Very nice. Indeed a blonde in its color, but don’t let that fool you. This is one big beer. Strong fruity sweetness, with a large dollop of Belgian yeast holding everything together. You can "feel" the alcohol, but there’s not much booziness going on.

JulienHuxley (3458) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold pour with thick foamy white head. Aroma of spicy belgian yeast esters, vanilla, stonefruit, light wild de dolle character that makes this brewery’s fame. Taste is sweet, malty, really fruity with a lingering spicy finish - nice hoppiness for the style as well. Palate is full bodied with the rich creamy carbonation I always get from De Dolle beers. Heavy beer, but pretty darn tasty.

Garlic_of_Doom (486) - SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle Amber/yellowish with a big white head. Alcohol, yeast, ripe fruit in the aroma. Taste is sweet, yeasty, peppery, has nice herbal bittnerness, some clove as well. Medium body, soft carbonation, dry with a long after taste.
Good but easy to forget.

PriorL (1989) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2014
33cl bottle. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small stable white head. NOSE: fruity esters, alcohol, caramel, very sweet, little malty, walnut? TASTE: very sweet beer, though slight hop and even dry aftertaste, very full in taste and carbonation. For me a little too much alcohol and sugar. Probably preserves ages!

Sweet and exceptionally balanced beer. Smell is as it tastes, candy and malt aroma, slight lemon citrus. Great beer as always from de dolle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Like a combination of light champagne and Tripel, well hidden ABV, soft with some residual sugar, this beer drinks amazing. Tasted at 60F.
