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.

Tap. Pours a clear golden with regular white head, quite creamy. Aroma is really reminiscent of a triple. Sweet flowers, yeast, fruity, light malts, some citrusy tang, candied sugar. Some sweet mandarins and hint of alcohol. Taste is sweet. Light malts, fruity, slight citrus, subtle pepper. Has some honey texture and slight bitter and dry hops in finish. Bit boozy.

Spicy, herbal, citric, yeasty and all in all very nice. The alcohol is well hidden, although there is a slight alcohol sensation. I like it alot.

Botella. Color naranja amarillo pálido. Espuma fina de buena formación y persistencia media. Aromas frutales y florales con toques sutiles de levadura. Miel, uva, vino blanco...en boca textura cremosa fina carbonatcion fina viva...dulce con los mismos matices q en nariz... la miel predomina, final seco, donde aparecen las levaduras y toques de polen. Agradable birra. La miel presente pero bien integrada...así como el alcohol

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2015 Hints of citrus, malty, mild honey touch to put the ribbon on it, booze at the end. Very good one.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a lot of floaties and a ginormous head on there. Nose has some banana and wheat with a hint if clove to it. Taste is slightly sweet and quite yeasty.

Beerathon (1556) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Interesting Belgian ale, seemingly a strong pale. The spices along with malts and honey bring about an apple aroma and slightly in flavor too. Perfect carbonation, Belgian yeast and sugars. Good stuff.

2014 Philly Beer Week draft @ Jose Pistolas. Pours hazy pale amber with a 1-finger white head. Aroma is slightly sour, with mild citrus and some earthy yeast. Body is medium-to-full, and lightly syrupy. Flavors of citrus and stone fruit with some earthy yeast underneath.
