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.

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.

Je ne sais pas si c’est une chance ou une erreur, mais la dégustation de cette Boskeun a été réalisée après celle de l’Arabier de la même brasserie. Et autant cette Boskeun est une très bonne bière, bien construite, autant en comparaison, mon cœur va directement vers l’Arabier que je trouve beaucoup plus belle et fine. Leur point commun : une belle amertume bien ciselée. Mais là où l’Arabier et élancée cette Boskeun est plus lourde en bouche, avec notamment des épices beaucoup plus prégnantes. Mais ne vous méprenez pas, cette Boskeun est de premier ordre, et je ne peux que vous la recommander. En verre, nous sommes sur un ambré moyen, légèrement voilé avec une mousse blanc cassée d’1,5 cm d’épaisseur. Le nez est sur le houblon, la coriandre, le miel, les céréales et fruité avec de la banane et de la pomme. Belle complexité que nous retrouvons sur l’attaque qui présente un bon équilibre malt/houblon mais avec une présence miel et épices légèrement trop poussée. La deuxième bouche, dans la continuité et sur des arômes de bananes légèrement plus intenses. L’arrière bouche quant à elle reprend l’attaque. La troisième bouche monte alors sur l’alcool, les 9 % Abv se ressentant convenablement. A l’instar de l’Arabie, le final, élancé et long, est sur une amertume bien ciselée. Belle prestation de chez De Dolle.

Draft at Hunger N Thirst. Pours golden with a thin white head. Doesn’t leave any lacing in the glass. Has a bit of that perfume thing you often get with Belgian Ales but also has a touch of honey. Hides it’s booze well. Finished on the dry side. Solid.

Zilverenmaan (265) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2017
Aroma mildly spicy, sweetish, nicely carried by the alcohol. Taste sweet malts, light hops, some yeast. Sweetness very elegant, a well balanced brew, well made: even the alcohol works well with it though in the end it is maybe a bit too alcoholic and carbonated.

Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av humle, jäst, päron, gröna druvor med örtiga inslag. Lagom sötma, fruktig, frisk, rund och len, fina aromer i god balans, bra beska. Tummen upp!

carlom (82) - ITALY - JUL 14, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 colore arancio leggermente torbida, schiuma abbondante e persistente. Al naso malto, cereali, leggermente lattica, spezie. Al palato note di miele, pepe, erba, crosta di pane, mela, albicocca. Corpo medio, secca con finale dolce e retrogusto amaro. Una birra abbastanza particolare in cui gli ingredienti si sentono ma non sono invadenti con note lattiche evidenti e con una marcata presenza di alcol.
