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.

Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown bottle dated February 2011, poured into a trappist glass. Pours translucent golden with big fluffy white head. Aroma is honey, medium body, well carbonated, and some lacing. Taste is sugar, honey, fruit, some yeast, with some balancing hops. Sweet, complex, good beer.

Bottle at home. Pours a pale and hazy hay color with a large white head. Aroma of hops. Taste is light and crispy, of fruits, yeast, hay, caramel and has a bitter hoppy taste. Body is full and boozy. Aftertaste is long and bitter but not too bad.

sankara (29) - Pisa, ITALY - JUL 13, 2013
Bionda pallida e leggermente torbida, produce una buona dose di schiuma, non molto compatta e con perlage a bolle piuttosto grandi. Quasi inesistente la parte olfattiva, si rifà alla grande con i sapori, leggere note di frutta sono accompagnate da spezie e miele, più evidenti, in un’ottima ed equilibrata combinazione. Non troppo dolce e neppure troppo amara. Il corpo è medio, come anche la carbonatazione, che scema nel finale. I 9° quasi non si avvertono, se non che alla fine; rimane anche un buono e persistente retrogusto, classico da strong belga. Nel complesso un acquisto azzeccato, da far assaggare agli amici. P.S. nota a parte per l’etichetta, originale ma troppo "americana" , vedi Flying Dog. --------&# Blonde pale and slightly turbid, produces a good deal of foam, not very compact and with perlage bubble quite large. Almost non-existent the olfactory, refers to the great with the flavors, notes of fruit are accompanied by spices and honey, the most obvious, in an excellent and balanced combination. Not too sweet and not too bitter. The body is medium, as well as the carbonation that fades in the final. I do not feel nearly 9 °, except that in the final is also a good and persistent aftertaste, classic Belgian strong. Overall a purchase guessed, to be assaggare friends. P.S. side note for the label, but too original "American" see Flying Dog.

umich03jm (1580) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a huge frothy head that fades normally. Big aroma of berries, spices, bananas, bubble gum, and sweet honey. Taste is moderately sweet with lots of berries and spices. Kind of a mess, so much Belgian spice. Honey and bubble gum show in the taste too. High fizzy carbonation, typical of these Belgian beers. Overall, not a big fan of this but certainly not bad. Just too much spice and too much fruitiness.

Vignale (1808) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2013
Flaska från beernavigator. Stor typiskt belgisk doft. Mycket jäst, honung, pomerans/apelsinskal och tunga blomdofter. Stark och söt men samtidigt lätt. Mycket belgisk karaktär. Smakbild som en blond eller stram trippel men med alkoholen får allt mer muskler. Mycket pomerans, apelsin, blomarom, bra balans, tydlig pomeransbeska. Ett öl jag blev väldigt förtjust i.

Holmen1 (2003) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2013
Flaske delt med Johnne på Cafe Viking, mai-13: tårnhøjt skum, heldig at vi hadde to glass for hånden. Belgisk gjæraroma i lange baner, kombinert med kandissukker, alkohol og akkompagnert av fruktige, lett krydrede noter. Dette sammen med sødmen i smaken gjør dette til en fin ølopplevelse, og jeg har ennå til gode å få et øl fra De Dolle som jeg ikke liker.
