COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Little Owl", a blond beer for quiet tasting created in collaboration with the Regionaal Landschap Vlaamse Ardennen (Flemish Ardennes Regional Landscape conservation board) and the Little Owl Project Leader to support the Little Owl project. To emphasise our regional identity and the links to this little creature, it includes carefully selected herbs and spices from the Flemish Ardennes. These give the beer a unique, full bodied aroma and taste and one will soon make you want more.

Ingredients: barley malt, maize, hops, yeast, woodruff, angelica, sloe.

MrHangover (3055) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2011
I love the name of the beer and the etiquet as well. Not too special beer, not bad either. Basic aroma of yeastiness with some spiced malt. Flavour has some spice fruits and a bit watery also. Not the best beer I’ve ever had, but certainly not the worst.

jgb9348 (4981) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a very fast dissolving white head. Aroma of hay, grass, honeysuckle, malt and not much of anything else- fairly mild. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal bite with a little hops noticeable and a slightly acidic flavour at the end - very mild indeed with only the herbal and grassy notes really coming through. Aftertaste is mild with a little bit of alcohol noticeable, some minor light hops and a touch of malt palatable as well. Overall, not a bad beer - just a bit too mild and not showing much of the good thing. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from the Bier Tempel in Bruxelles, Belgium on 02-January-2011 for €2,00 sampled at home in Washington on this side of the pond on 01-June-2011.

teorn88 (3551) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours golden hazy with a medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma is mostly sweet and yesty with caramel and fruits. Alcohol presence in the nose as well. Taste is on the sweet end with tripel-like notes, some alcohol and some spices. Finish is a bit dry. Overall, quite nice, but the alcohol presence was too perceivable for a 6.5% ABV to me.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2011
Bottled. A hazy dark golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, spices, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, and spices, leading to a lightly tart finish - is it slightly off even though it is well within its best before date.
