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.

wheninhell (488) - chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2010
from bottle. huge gusher. crystal clear golden with a huge fluffy ever growing white head. honey orange zest aroma with light clove. sweet orange and spicy clove dominate the flavor notes of hay. long sweet/tart cooked orange finish with lingering tart orange dry spicy clove. at first over the over the top carbonation explodes in your mouth leaving nothing but foam. quite unpleasant. given the chance to settle the carbonation becomes nice lively but not over the top. without the lively carbonation the beer would possibly seem heavy sweet and sticky.

Bottle to a pint glass. Hazy copper gold, 3 finger foamy off white head. Banana, clove, yeast , malt... Layers of flavor, hides the ABV, nice hint of honey on the finish. Very nice Blond Belgian Strong Ale...

thanatosti (1068) - NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2015
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought from a colleague. Hazy dark golden with a white head. Sweet caramel and honey aroma, with some yeast. Taste is at first cloyingly sweet but the bitterness follows quickly. Mouthfeel is sticky, alcohol s very well concealed. A bit too sweet for my taste but worth the try.

sir__v (862) - Lille, FRANCE - APR 5, 2015
Bottle from Deconinck, Vichte - BE. Color: hazy/cloudy dark blond beer with yeast particle, small carbonation and medium persistant white foam. Smell: caramel and malt domination. Sweet, sugar cane notes. Butter, caramel and toffee... very amazing. Yeast finish and small sour presence. Taste: very smooth on mouth and malty. Good toffee and caramel taste and well balanced of bitter. Sour and caramel finish. EXCELLENT ! Aftertaste: caramel, malt and sour notes. Yeasty. Small alcohol finish but not disturbing the degustation. For me it’s look like the spring Stille Nacht, easier to drink but with the same notes ! Thanks Kris !

Lukasmh (333) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 3, 2015
Tap. Pours a clear golden with regular white head, quite creamy. Aroma is really reminiscent of a triple. Sweet flowers, yeast, fruity, light malts, some citrusy tang, candied sugar. Some sweet mandarins and hint of alcohol. Taste is sweet. Light malts, fruity, slight citrus, subtle pepper. Has some honey texture and slight bitter and dry hops in finish. Bit boozy.

Spicy, herbal, citric, yeasty and all in all very nice. The alcohol is well hidden, although there is a slight alcohol sensation. I like it alot.

Botella. Color naranja amarillo pálido. Espuma fina de buena formación y persistencia media. Aromas frutales y florales con toques sutiles de levadura. Miel, uva, vino blanco...en boca textura cremosa fina carbonatcion fina viva...dulce con los mismos matices q en nariz... la miel predomina, final seco, donde aparecen las levaduras y toques de polen. Agradable birra. La miel presente pero bien integrada...así como el alcohol
