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.

Bamsen78 (5010) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt and yeast, with hoppy notes and touches of flowers and caramel. Bitter, hoppy flavour with grassy and floral notes and round touches of fruit and malt. Nutty hints. Bitter and slightly acetic afteraste. Nice.

MiP (15253) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2015
Bottle, 6.5%. Mild honey aroma, hint of pepper. Almost clear dark golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is soapy and perfumy at first. Then it turns more peppery and spicy with a touch of honey and more soap. The soap is not a bad note, it is just the closest deScriptor I can come up with. On the peppery side like many other Belgians but not bad at all. Edit: It turns out from the commercial deScription that the soapy note is woodruff, of course.

Beersiveknown (5001) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle from the brewer shared at Dupont
Dry sage, honey sweetness, light bready notes but overall its yeasty esters that take the centre stage. Well integrated, none of the additions are overpowering, works well.
