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.

Cloudy blonde with a white head. Brewed with sweet woodruff (Galium odoratum), angelica (Angelica archangelica?) and sloe (Prunus spinosa). Welcoming taste and the palate is more surprising, with patience.

Vaiz (3343) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2010
Bottle at home. Opened with quite a loud noise, but fortunately no gusher. Pours a clear golden color with a small, creamy white head. Aroma is quite sweet with some fruits and a definite malt presence. Flavor is sweet and bitter in a nice balance. Nice bitter in the finish. Lively carbonation. Decent blond beer I could drink every day, but nothing really stands out.

De Ryck stayed in my mind for a long time by making a really nice beer you would always only get half a bottle of. Because the rest exploded all around you or at best turned to foam. This beer, however, is very mature. Medium alcohol, great grassy/honeyish smell, good honey taste combined with freshness. Finally a long lasting bitter palate that manifests only 15 inutes later to it’s full potential. Great stuff!
