COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bosbier of Brouwerij Cornelissen is a very original and in Belgium unique fruitbeer. It is distinguished by it’s kind enjoyed by his soft aftertaste, which is a result of the very special brewing process. Bosbier is brewed on the basis of the home brewed traditional lager beer, with the original of real fresh blueberries of the Limburg region added to it. This is not an ordinary flavored beer, this has the originality of the real blueberries in it's glass! This gives it a very own soft-sweet taste, unlike the typical sour taste of fruit beers that are brewed on the basis of geuze (lambic style). Bosbier was launched in 1989. It is a tastefull tasting beer, just as blessed as a fine wine. The distinctive glass underlines and supports that thought.

25 cL bottle, 4.5%, one of my first Belgian beers ever if I recall right - rerate 2008. Pours unclear deep purple in beer flavour and purple lacing white head. Solid blueberry aroma, slight earthy and mild spiced. Sweet blueberry flavour - lending towards a slight strawberry like note. Mild finish with a mild sweetness and continued blueberry fruity note.
