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.

Cloudy amber color with a big, persistent frothy head. Nose: orange, hebs, esters, spices, moist leaves. Taste is caramel, dough, cereals, alcohol. Creamy, thick mouthfeel. Heavy body, vigorous carbonation, astringent finish. A great example of the style.

PlutonowyMan (550) - POLAND - NOV 7, 2016
Barwa m?tna pomara?czowa z mnóstwem dro?d?owych drobinek. Puszysta bia?a piana, wysoka i do?? trwa?a, brzydko p?ka przypominaj?c pian? z detergentów. Aromat jest s?odki, jest kandyzowana pomara?cza, lukrecja, delikatnie migda?y, mandarynki w zalewie cukrowej, jest s?odko ale smacznie. Smak, tutaj do przodu wychodz? migda?y i mandarynki, lukrecja praktycznie jest schowana za pomara?cz? Goryczka na finiszu, sucha, chmielowa, trawiasta. Nasycenie ?rednie w kierunku do wysokiego, powoduje uczucie syto?ci. Bardzo du?y plus za idealnie schowany alkohol.

hackobock (3671) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2016
March 25, 2016. On tap at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade. Vintage 2010 and 2012.
Light hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is orange, grape skins, hints of almond, warming alcohol, spices and grass. Taste is sweet, light spicy, soft bitter and slightly boozy. Finish is sweet with fruity esters, honey notes, pear, some almond notes, dry grassy bitterness and warming alcohol. Medium bodied, slight creamy texture, soft carbonation.
Good, 2012 is more dry grassy and bitter then 2010 which has more sweet fruity esters and marzipan notes.

tricksta_p (3734) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is spicy yeast, bready pale malt, spices, esters, herbal and sugary notes, some alcohol and a soft touch of fruits. Flavour is sweet and moderate bitter with some noticeable booze. Body is medium with hefty carbonation. A bit too boozy but I like the estery yeasty aroma.

fantti (954) - 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.
