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.

Temptation (257) - - FEB 7, 2013
Golden color, precious white and plenty head, leaving a great and marked lace. Fresh aroma, with hints of alcohol, yeast, citric like bitter orange, and something that canít identify. In mouth is very dry, a point of grape liquor, a little bit spicy...complex, but very well structured. It improves as it developed. Need more tastings, anyway.

jmgreenuk (6515) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Poured a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is sweet caramel, toffee, light alcohol. The flavour is moderate sweet with a yeast bitter, sweet malt, sickly alcohol sugar palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. A nice beer, but I donít get the high ratings from everyone else iím afraid.

imdownthepub (12169) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Bottled, 330ml, aged 7.5yrs, from The Hopduvel Warehouse, Ghent, Belgium. Clouded amber with explosive white head. There is alcohol apparent in this from the start, hot and fiery, Yeasty spicy of the Belgian kind, banana and a herby bitterness, quite harsh on the palate. Bif depth of flavour. A big beer.

SinH4 (1601) - Garching, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2015
Hazy golden color with big white head. Aroma is spicy, very yeasty, sweet fruits, ripe apples, peaches, honey, some candied and powdered sugar. Taste is more sweet fruits and spices, finishes warming with a booze kick. Thick and syrupy mouthfeel. High but soft carbonation. Very intense and sweet. I usually donít like this kind of strong, sweet and highly carbonated Belgian strong, but I have to admit, De Dolle always pulls it off decently.
