"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.

KyotoLefty (8922) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 13, 2011
Bottle mail ordered from Kiya. Big fruity aroma, orange, lemon, apple, plus herbs and biscuits. Deep golden orange with a medium, pillowy head.  Tangy, fruity flavor, biscuity malt, spicy, interesting. Rather complex, really, with good flavor yet mild. Light and drinkable, enjoyable. Cool label too.

Hazy orange/amber body. Off-white rocky head. Nice aroma of hops, yeast, spices (as in a mediterraneal spice mixture) - bit sweet, but complex and well balanced. Moderately bitter, moderately sweet flavour: warming with a gentle sweetness. Well balanced and fully bodied.
