"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.

Douberd (3416) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2014
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 (700) - 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 (725) - 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 (583) - 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 (1368) - 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.

Renobob (1263) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 23, 2013
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.

paulvanpelt (408) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2013
Blond en mistig bier, behoorlijke witte schuimkraag. Aroma van gist, zand, frisse kruiden. Licht tot medium bitter, licht zoet. Behoorlijke body voor een relatief licht biertje. Laag co2, zacht in de mond. Behoorlijk lekker biertje voor zijn stijl.

Borresteijn (5570) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2013
33cl Bottle at Café Gollem. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of tobacco/unlit sigaret, toast, yeast, light fruity, typical Belgian blond. Flavour is tobacco, grain, toast, light fruity, yeasty, yeasty and malty bitter finish. Light-bodied, firm carbonation. Not great.
