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.

Pours an amber body with a medium head. Yeasty aroma with malty tones. Nice taste but nothing out of the ordinary. Just another tripel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Meilby (9625) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle 330ml @ Geokkjer
Pours clear golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, dried fruits and yeast. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with a yeasty, fruity finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle. A huge, off-white head forms over a more or less clear, golden body. Curtains. The aroma is quite fruity, with some yeast and a touch of pale malts. It’s medium bodied, smooth and nicely carbonated. Yeast, pale malts, some bitterness, a good dash of fruityness and some pine cones in the flavor. Lasting finish. Too much on the yeasty side this one, not very good actually. 150711

DutchMark (252) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2015
Quite like it. Texture, carbonation, looks all well done. The flavor concentrates on malts and belgian yeast. Simple but good.

Ysok02 (369) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2015
Robe blonde reflets ambrés. Nez sur les épices et le malt légèrement torréfié. Bouche d’une belle ampleur, tout en restant délicate et élégant. Une bière de soif.

Wixie (134) - BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2015
Clear, small, airy head. Aroma of hops and pils. Light body, strong carbonation. Taste like pils with extra herbs.

Spiced amber ale. Rather unpleasant after taste for me. Drunk from 33cl bottle bought at Malting Pot in Brussels. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bov (10485) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 5, 2015
from Schoentjes - hazy blond beer with a little white foam left; strong yeasty and bready aroma with notes of mineral; quite full-bodied, tart bitter herbal with some salty notes; honeyish and bready finish with gentle spicy notes - the excessive yeasty flavors prevent it to be really good

It seems that the sweet woodruff is the thing giving a drug (for cold) taste to the beer. Other than that, nothing much to say, it’s a good beer but not the one you desperately want to have when looking for the genre.
