"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.

A great looking label and an equally great looking beer. Its golden and slightly hazy appearance is very seductive. When it’s cold it’s a very solid beer and even quite refreshing. As it turns warmer however it becomes evident just how sweet it is and it looses some of its charm. I’de go for other and less sweet Belgian blondes.

Bottle. Golden color. Slightly spicy and floral lemonaroma. Thinnish. Spicy, floral flavor, sweetish with citrus and tropical fruit. I prefer the basis De Ryck beers to this spiced specimen.

witterank (11) - BELGIUM - APR 16, 2010
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.
