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.

Countbeer (4392) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Big creamy foamy head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Aromas of malts, yeast, hops, some flowers, some fruits, pils malts and iron. Flavours of herbs, grains, bitters, yeast, light spice, iron, quite crisp, quite herbal. Aftertaste is bitter, herbal, grassy, yeasty and light malty. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture. Decent for itís style, yet a bit boring for the beer. Though itís a beer that goes down easy.

Golden color, a bit hazy. Forms a fluffy head with decent retention. Smell is dominated by the specific belgian yeast. Although the ABV isnít that high, you can taste the alcohol. Tends to be more on the bitter side. I canít taste all those spices from the description, maybe they are too subtle for me. Light to medium body, good carbonation and kind of smooth. Leaves your mouth very dry. Overall it is a decent belgian ale. I am a bit disappointed that I couldnít taste those spices.

Bottle at home, 330 ml, into a tulip. ABV 6.5% Clear body, deep orange golden in colour, with two fingers of head, snow white in colour, with average retention and lots of lacing left around the glass. Aroma of malts, peaches, sugar, quite faint. Taste is sweet and sugary, some malts, herbal and floral notes, yeast. Mildl bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, very dry on the palate. Good carbonation. Overall okay, nothing extra ordinary, but still drinks good.

Bontus (630) - Flanders, BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2014
33cl bottle, Geers. Pours golden, white head. Strange spiced nose, a combination of spruce, tobacco, licorice & straw. This strange combo goes down with medium carbonation and balanced tastes. Interesting at least...

mutz (574) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2014
Blond,goede kraag. Ruikt gistig, schoonmaakspullig, wat fruit. Smaakt naar een soort schoonmaakmiddel, vrij bitterdroog, kruidig, wat dennennaalden. Niet veel body. Niet zo mijn ding.

GSAP (490) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2014
Kan niet meteen de vinger erop leggen, maar zowel aroma als smaak hebben een combinatie van kruiden en zoetwaar, met lichte dennengeur en tabak elementen. Aardig wat koolzuur, maar drinkt heerlijk weg. Nasmaak tikkeltje bitter en droog.

dnicolaescu (736) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 9, 2014
BOTTLE 33CL. Look: golden and cloudy with a big off-white sparkling head with poor retention. Aroma: herbs, medicine-like, sweetish fruit, honey, slight acidity. Taste: again medicine-like herbs, light sweetness, quite bitter.

An unusual belgian blonde dominated by herbs.

D'abord attiré par la belle étiquette et sa chouette mystérieuse puis vraiment pas déçu par cette blonde aux touches d'herbe fraîche. Une bonne amertume également.
