The smell and flavour of this brew do it for me, big fruity esters with a sweet pale malt base. Has hints of almonds and mango with a warming alcohol. I know it is their spring beer but this is one that could be aged a year or perhaps more and still gain in complexity.

4.43/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 33cl brown Euro-style brown bottle. A freaky ass psycho Easter bunny sits up against a tree, eyeing up a glass of Bos Keun. Obviously Mr. Easter Bunny has his priorities straight ... screw the hopping and Easter candy! He's got beer!

Appearance: Cloudy (from the yeast) orange straw. The head is pretty healthy and settles to a creamy white lace that sticks heavily along the sides of the glass.

Smell: You can get high off of this smell. Earthy, yeasty and sugary sweetness that is nearly cloaked by a medicinal aroma. Estery too with really ripe pineapple aromas.

Taste: First sip releases a lot of foam activity, creating a creamy texture on the palate. Medium bodied. Then comes some lime rind, quick sharpness then a tea-like citrus hop flavour. There's a unique musty quality to this brew with is a bit powdery and adds to the incredible complexity of this beer. All of this is then overtaken by a sugar sweetness and faint background tartness. Finishes a tad dry with some residual sweetness.

Notes: Purchased at 't Brugs Beertje in Brugs for 140 BF, by Todd. 7% abv, and very drinkable. This beer is huge in character and complexity. Can't really say to much more about it as we are in awe of this beer.
