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.

On tap at Toronado, San Francisco. This golden ale poured with a nice white head that dissipated rather quickly. The flavor is hoppy and spice-laden (cinnamon, nutmeg, citrus), with a more bitter finish. There is also a sweet spicy aroma.

A pretty old bottle I think, pretty mellow, not in a bad way! Half way though it, and enjoying it more as it warms up. Spice, fruit, citrus, alcohol too, liked it, but wish alcohol was better hidden.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2011 My 400th beer. I popped this beer open and poured it in my glass. It pours to a frothy/creamy white head that laces the glass well. The body is an opaque caramel color that has active carbonation bubbling from the bottom. The aroma has spicy fruits present. I definitely smell the cane sugar (I wonder if they got whole cane and dropped that in). White pepper and apricots. The flavor is a spicy (cinnamon, mace, nutmeg, pepper) ale with light apples and apricots, honey. Perhaps a bit too spicy for my taste. The palate is medium-full bodied and is creamy and overly carbonated. De Dolle makes better beers. This ones not bad, but Im a little disappointed. :( 7/24/2005 8:52:40 PM - UPDATED 8/16/2007 = 7, 5, 7, 3, 14 = 3.6

arabier is better and more complex IMO. Thsi oen pours a nice copper color with a modest head which fades. Aroma is somewhat fruity with some phenolics, spice, citrus etc. Flavor is a little dull, with some malts blending with spice and fruits. SOme alcohol comes through as it warms. The finish wasnt that great either.

Poured a hazy orange yellow color with a medium sized, creamy, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of oranges, peaches, spices, vanilla, and yeast. Taste of citrus, spices, lemons, light hoppiness and alcohol.

JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2005
Bottle. Cloudy yellow with huge white head. Citrus, yeast and spices in the aroma. Taste is fruity, honey, candy, spicey, a bit like a tripel but more interesting. Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, cant spot the alcohol. Like it.

33cl. bottle. Hazy golden with an enormous white frothy head that wouldnt go away. Aroma of apricots, lemons and pepper. Flavor starts off mildly sweet before turning somewhat dry on the finish. Lots of tropical fruit and spices. Strange mouthfeel that I cant describe but takes a little away from the enjoyment. Nice though.
