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.

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

a very nice BSA, one of the better ones i have had. i believe i am getting more accustomed to this style, and i am learning to appriciate it more. very fruity and earty flavored. pours out an orange color with a white head that never goes away. taste is sweet, and a little hoppy. very very nice, went great with dinner, a superb beer.

Thick huge white head, pale muted yellow. Nose has a mead like quality, with some citrus. Foamy, very mead like with fresh peach, medium mouthfeel with light sweetness.

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.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2004
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.

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).

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.

Great ambercolored Easterbeer with nice appearance and fine fluffy head.This beer smels nice and it has a fine complex aroma off good hops,pale malts,wild honey and cane sugar.The taste round,hoppy,drysweet and ending in a fine noble bitterness.
