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.

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.

fantti (942) - FINLAND - OCT 3, 2016
Pullo @ K & S Beer & Tobacco, Brugge. Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, valtavalla lasin täyttävällä vaahdolla, joka jää isoksi pumpulipilveksi oluen päälle. Tuoksussa on runsaasti belgihiivan pippurisen mausteisia elementtejä, hiven yrttisellä vivahteella. Kuivattua hedelmää ja anistakin on joukossa. Maku on edelleen pippurisen belgihiivainen, nyt anis on selvästi vahvempaa. Lakritsikin tulee mieleen, mutta se voi olla aniksen vivahteitakin. Alla on marmeladimaista makeaa hedelmäisyyttä täydentäen pakettia. Suutuntuma on hyvin täyteläinen, alkoholin polte tuntuu myös selvästi. Mausteinen ja hyvin aniksinen vahva belgi, lämmittävä ja riittävän monimuotoinen tapaus, että voisi palata uudestaan.

Antonio369 (172) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2016
33 cl bottle, served in tulip glass. Poured cloudy golden with an huge foamy 4 finger off white head. Loads and loads of yeast sediments floating in glass...beautiful! Aromas of honey, lime, orange peel, pepper, bready, floral, grapefruit, strawberry. Taste: Oh wow...honey, blood orange, spices, pear, vinous almost champagne like, caramel, vanilla, herbs, grapefruit, bread with strawberry jam, fruity sugar candy. Delicious creamy and malty mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. A medium body with a long fruity, spicy and boozy finish. The high ABV is well hidden and only reveals itself in the finish. It’s been quite a while since I’ve tasted a really good Belgian beer, and the Boskeun really hits the ball right out of the park for me! Hats off to De Dolle Brouwers! Bravo!
