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.

paulvanpelt (321) - Reusel, - 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.

ruigo (1037) - PORTUGAL - JUL 29, 2014
Shared a 33cl bottle from Delhaize (Luxembourg). Pours an hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Yeast, fruit and spices in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Overall, an average beer. Nothing special about it.

Orange gold. Interesting aroma maybe from the traditional herb blend. Made with bits of real owl so you know it’s good.

Bière blonde de 6,5 %abv réalisée pour un groupement régional flamand. Couleur doré moyen brillant. Clarté nette. Bulles fines en une fontaine au centre, moyennement dense. Mousse blanche à gros flocons. Arômes d’herbes, malt clair, houblon plutôt amer, pointe d’agrumes. 1ère bouche assez structurée, sur du malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche plus parfumée sur les herbes aromatiques. 2ème sur un beau malt blanc, mais l’harmonie houblon/herbes est assez faible. 3ème avec les aromates en avant, et le malt en fond. Arrière-bouche agréable sans plus. La longueur descend nettement sur les impressions. La levure est douce mais plutôt neutre en qualité. L’alcool est banal, sans aucune aide. La finale est linéaire et peu ample. CONCLUSION : une bière qu’on a travaillée sur ces herbes des Ardennes flamandes, mais sans veiller à leur harmonie. Agréable malgré tout, mais sans plus. On ne comprend pas cette médaille d’argent 2011 au European Beer Star !!! Je crois que je vais conseiller les juges sur quelques bières à primer !!!!

deanso (5087) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2014
33cl bottle from Speciaalbier, Leiden. Thick white head which disappears quickly. Slightly hazy golden blond pour. A nice enough beer, nothing special.

Countbeer (4325) - 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 it’s style, yet a bit boring for the beer. Though it’s a beer that goes down easy.

ciocanelu (51) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 24, 2014
Golden color, a bit hazy. Forms a fluffy head with decent retention. Smell is dominated by the specific belgian yeast. Although the ABV isn’t that high, you can taste the alcohol. Tends to be more on the bitter side. I can’t 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 couldn’t taste those spices.

Douberd (2098) - 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 (625) - 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 (557) - 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.
