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.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, - SEP 30, 2012
In bottle at home. Pours a dark golden colour with a thick, lasting white head. Aroma of honey, biscuity malt, hibiscus flowers and alcohol. Similar flavours and nicely bitter with heavy carbonation and a chewy mouth-feel. A bitter meady finish. Really interesting with a dry finish.

dogfishho (656) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Pours a hazy golden color with a huge, billowing white head. The aroma is fruity and complex but there is also a bit of a funky barnyard thing going on as well. The palate is sweet, but the carbonation and mild acidity cut the fresh fruit flavors quickly, making for a well balanced drink. Quite nice.

Lekker stevig blond bier met een fijne nasmaak. Wat troebelig en hopachtig.

Pours a fine gold to Amber, with pillowy white head. Some yeast residue floating. Apples and pears on the aroma with some alcahol and effervescents. Drinks fantastically, all the preceding qualities present in an exceptionally well balanced beer. Overall I have to admit I am surprised as this wasn’t what I was expecting. I am a big fan of de dolle, and this beer like there others doesn’t disappoint. Definitely worth trying if you can get hold of it

Hanoi (570) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle. Nose is fruity, pear, banana, cloves, bubblegum, wheat, sugars, caramel, sweet strawberry, yeast. Taste is sweet, grassy, bubblegum, pear, peach, strawberry, caramel, honey, an emerging dry hop note. Yeast and honey in the finish. It’s a beer which makes good use of it’s honey picking up the dry notes you find in good honey, not just the sweetness. Still it’s too sweet overall for me and it makes it a bit rich.

Trevlig gyllene blond risig färg. Som AM's skogaholmslimpor right under your nose! Söt smak. Fjällbrynt messmör - släng dig i väggen! Doften är söt, bördig malt, jästig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
