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.

Bottled at Rich O's: Poured a cloudy orange/yellow with a huge rocky meringue head. Quite effervescent. Has a sweet finish with a light fruity taste and the usual Belgian ale flavors. Good.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 8, 2004
Straw yellow color, slilghtly cloudy, with a thick white foamy head. Aroma is very tripel-like; yeasty, sweet, bright and crisp, with bananna and orange notes, honey, and nutmeg. Flavor is pretty sweet, with lots of honey, especially in the finish, with an alcohol base threading itself through the aroma and flavor. A somewhat unique brew, definitely worth having.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2004
Hazy orange golden body, frothy white head. Characteristic De Dolle aroma, very spicy and peppery with fruit and alcohol tones. Flavor is also very spicy and tart, white pepper, coriander, fruit, yeast and hops. Another good beer from De Dolle, but you really have to be in that certain De-Dolle-mood when drinking it.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2004
Light hazy copper-gold, huge, clumpy white head that clings to the glass. Nose nicely yeasty, loads of banana-ish esters, good spice as well. Alcohol is very noticeable, overly so for something under 9%. Good spiciness, yeastiness is there, odd, somewhat medicinal finish, kind of an odd honey sweetness mixed with candy sugars.

The cap comes off with authority. Great head from the pour, very tightly packed bubbles uniformally spaced, i likes. Licorice aroma, kind of strange, but an overall good taste, great beer.
