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.

Bottle @ delirium. Bottiglia non invecchiata. Dopo essermi divertito a leggerne la storia ho versato in uno snifter. la schiuma è poderosa, compattissima, stabile ma scompare piuttosto rapidamente (1 minuto e ci sarà solo un lieve strato). Il colore è ambrato, o ruggine a seconda dei riflessi. Il profumo è di miele, di spezie ( a me ricordava la cannella e lo zenzero) e decismanete alcolico. All’assaggio ritorna il gusto del miele, una intensa luppolatura agrumata, ed un bel calore alcolico che la attenua. C’è una indefinita sensazione di dolcezza, ma va e viene,e non riesco ad indentificare la fonte (zucchero di canna?). Corpo rotondo e finale secco e pastoso.

It’s your typical Belgian Strong.. I just wasn’t that impressed. Drinkable though.

Zoet en zwwar bier. Erg apart. Alleen jammer dat de kwaliteit niet konstant is. Wil nog wel eens uit de fles spuiten.

jelledebont (39) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2015
Bijna oranje bier, een beetje troebel, veel koolzuur, met een mooie witte schuimkraag. Heeft niet echt een specifieke geur. De smaak kan ik niet goed omschrijven, maar je proeft de alcohol goed terug. Ook niet zo’n fijne nasmaak, waarna mijn mond en keel nogal droog aanvoelen.

Grima (2189) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2015
Bottle from Mi Orge Mi Houblon, Arlon, Belgium!
Pours golden orange with a lovely creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, hoppy, with some honey in the nose. Taste of dried fruits, honey, herbal hips and a perfumey note. Very fizzy carbonation. Goes into a boozy, perfumey finish with some fermented fruits and lots of honey.

Bill Becker (552) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a huge head of foam. ..great lacing left behind. It smells hoppy, spicy, lightish on the malt profile. First thing that I notice is an abundance of candi sugar sweetness followed by spice like cloves and pepper. Slight bitterness but it can easily get overlooked. Pretty lively carbonation to go with the medium body. A well brewed example of the style.

Huge one.. Most of all I get combo of honey, candy, peachy fruitiness, noticeable yeastiness, then theres light floral hop profile in background, wood notes, coriander. Quite intense sweetness with light bitterness and light hint of sourness. Complex, well balanced and highly enjoyable. Love it
