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.

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a lot of small yeast sediments and a huge white head. Aroma is solid spiced, yeasty and mild caramel malt, mild floral note. Flavour is spiced and sweet, with strong fruity note and distinct warmth from the alcohol. Slight woody note towards the finish. Ends warming and with a slight bite from alcohol and spices.

Ungstrup (31472) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2003
[Bottled] An unclear red/orange beer with a beutiful though collapsing head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of peach. The flavor is also sweet malty with notes of oranges, peaches, coriander, yeast, and alcohol prickling the tongue. It ends on a fruit rich dryness with a hint of bitterness. It has a great palate for a beer of 7% ABV. But it has too much yeast flavor for my liking.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Typical muddy DDB-appearance, pale amber in colour and a thick head. Soft, sweetish (from the added cane) and very pleasant from the refined spiciness. 040494

Bottled. Hazy pale nutbrown colour, mediumsized creamy/foamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet grass, spices and some wheat. A lot of caramel malts too. Flavour is yeast, spices, fruity hops and caramel malts. Once it gets warmer a lot of fudgeish hints along with pepperyness. Really nice thing.

Sweet amber beer. Subtle toffee and banana dominated by a brandyish tone. Dry frothy finish. Better when pretty cold!

Bottle at home ... Golden orange ... very lumpy ... Big foam head ... light fruity hop nose ... little warming on way down ... some grapefuit hop just a little sour ... milt bready tones ... just not working for me.
