3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Since it seems like Iím thanking someone for something in almost every rating these daysÖ I suppose Iíll keep up the thanking and thank the World of Beer for having this beer on the shelf for me to buy????
Like many of the DDB beers that Iíve sampled, Bos Keun pours with an enormous ivory head! The body is a foggy glowing orange and emits a most floral aroma. Nice aroma of summer dandelions and marigolds as well as freshly pealed tangerine and honeysuckleÖ very light and summery! The flavor is rather citric and sweet as well, with big hints of honey and tangerine in the flavor. Rather spicy.., some notes of ginger and a bunch of ground black pepper, even noting some thyme and rosemary. The palate is relatively rich and luscious.. very sticky with a slight buttery / biscuity and very warming experience in the finish. The lacing that draped the inner glass is utterly ridiculous! It looks like that fake spray on snow in a can!
Very good BSA! Iíd certainly drink this one again!

fresh fruity aroma with perfume hints. A bit malty, with that special De Dolle touch, you can sence that this is a De Dolle beer right away, spicy finish

Iíve enjoyed the other De Dolle Iíve tried. This wasnít bad but also wasnít as good. Amber with a frothy white head. Nose is somewhat sweet. Candy. Fruit. Lively carbonation. Medium bodied. Flavor was spicy and sweet and bitter as you went along.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle conditioned. Cloudy golden, with a small white head that stays through the beer. Sweet, malty, fruity, spicy, slightly peppery, subdued bitterness on the tongue. No hop aroma. Lovely, typical Belgian qualities. Very good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly sweet, somewhat spicey aroma. Sweet body balances the alcohol quite well. A little light on body but otherwise quite enjoyable.

On bottle at 700 club. Extra appearance point for the rabbit. Finished off the night with this one. Probaly should have had this then the OerBier, but oh well... Pale, dry, boozy brew, not much malt (unlike OerBier).

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2004 Not good, way too sweet. I love sweet beer but this is syrup. as other ales I have had from Belgum. I liked . Spicey but too medicinal. The sweetness A bit dry, if you like an alchol taste this is for you. I thought it was nasty medicine and a real drain pour. At least I (albiet barely)can drink a bud without wanting to puke.
