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.

OMG. Delicious bitterness. Flavors are deep & difficult to describe. Awesome brew. Exceptional. Definitely Dolle’s Easter brew. First time Bottleworks has ever had a keg. (Draught / Bottleworks, Seattle / 04/2012)

Pleasant, roasty aroma of banana, nuts, vanilla and alcohol. It looks just alright, but not too enticing, a bit lumpy. I’m sorry to say that but the taste and palate is crap. For a second I thought it might be expired, but it’s not. Vinegary. Boozy. Waaaaay too fizzy. Long sour finish. Hard and unpleasant to drink, imo. Bonus points for the naive label, at least.

McNeillR (2142) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2016
Light golden and greasy haze. Nice thin tight white bubbly head. Nose is sticky melon, ceramicy clove and tinny spice. Initial taste is a chalky sweetness and a quality boozey hum. Carbonation is firm and mouthfeel is taught and sticky. Finishes a bright fluffy marzipan buzz and lingers out and out clove spice.

jamestulloch (3098) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2016
Bottle at Appellation Wines tasting. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of orange pith, spice and marmalade. Flavour of red apple and a hint of vinegar - unusual but not unpleasant. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Lively fizz. Not the easiest to drink.
