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.

consumed a while ago - notes from phone: not a whole lot of aroma but a refreshing combo of some sour funk with standard Belgian skrong fare, a little one dimensional overall tho

Dimmig orange l med ett grddigt vitt skum. Klassisk belgisk jstkryddig doft med ltta toner av citruszest. I smaken s spelar citrusfrukter, mango och syrliga aprikoser huvudrollen.

Apperance is orange/golden. Some sediment. Aroma fruity, sweet. Honey. Taste has a nice balance between sweet, bitter and slightly acid. Very nice beer, somewhat between a triple and an abt.

ozzatoadisback (155) - ITALY - MAY 16, 2017
Very hazy light orange with maybe some visible sediment. Big and dense white head, excellent retention and lacing. Aroma is softly yeasty and sugary, with notes of honey, chamomile and yellow fruits (peach, pear). Taste is very sweet (sugar, honey, chamomile), nicely attenuated by the slightest tartness and by a hint of spiciness. Overall it still feels balanced enough. Alcohol is extremely well hidden. Medium to dense bodied with medium to high but somehow very soft carbonation (sugar?). Overall the beer feels pleasantly soft and delicate. Good stuff.

Typical tripel in style with a sweet finish. Lots of head. Metallic aroma slightly off-putting

anstei (2128) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 14, 2017
UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 Bottle, courtesy of SinH4, bottled probably 1994/1995. Pours almost clear light brown. Aroma is a bit of soy sauce, spicy, old prunes. Body is medium, fruity, but a bit sour and rather tart, intense. Incredibly balanced and harmonic. A little boozy on the palate. An experience not to miss!

From old tasting notes. Hazy deep honey gold color.large, thick beige head.intense fruity malt aroma. Wonderfully intense sweet malt flavor upfront. Obvious alcohol strength is present throughout. Cloying malty flavor lingers in each sip. Delicious honey flavor and light malt finish.
