COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Auroch’s Horn is a modern reinterpretation of ancient ale brewed throughout Europe more than two thousand years ago. Ale was a staple of the barbarian diet, with Roman historians documenting a beverage made with barley, wheat, and honey in Britannia, Gaul, and Germania. The ale was consumed from the horn of the auroch (or aurochs), a now extinct wild bull.

Tasting Notes:

Distinctly honey with complementing yeast, fruit, and alcohol notes. Well balanced. Golden with a brown hue from the honey and caramelization in the kettle. Thick frothy white foam.

Serving Suggestions:

The Auroch’s Horn is designed to be served at cellar temperatures, 50-55 degrees Fahrenheit.

Pour with or without the lees; a good way to distribute the lees is by pouring the first half of the bottle, gently swirling the bottle, and then finishing the pour.

weihenweizen (1866) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Refrigerated 75 cl corked and caged bottle poured into a glass. Hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is light honey, light body, low carbonation, and little small-bubble lacing. Taste is sweet honey, spicy, with some astrigency. The honey and spice don’t meld for me.

Bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow. Big white head. Aroma is papery, weird yeast, trash. Taste is more of the trash. Pretty bad. High carbonation. Drain pour.

Great experience from start to finish. Satisfying as soon as the cork is popped, smells and pours beautifully, taste is fantastic the honey really smooths out the mouth feel. I can’t say enough good things.

750ml bottle share thanks to Lukaduke! Pours cloudy dark orange with 2 finger head. Nose is grainy yeast, touches of honey, fruit, spice. Taste is somewhat heavy mouthfeel, lots of bready grain, fruit, some light sweet honey cereal notes. Finish is dry fruity grains, yeast, honey.

Lukaduke (2362) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours a medium golden color with two finger so fizzy white foam. Lots of sweet honey, spearmint, bubblegum up front with some redeeming rustic graininess and peppery spice mid palate. The sweetness is a bit to cloying for me to really enjoy this beer but it does dry out nicely on the finish and has some interesting flavors involved just doesn’t harmonize into anything that special !

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Poured with a fabulous huge head that last & a bit of lace. Nose is dominated by yeast then some malt. Flavors good a little overstated in the honey for me. Excellent palate in the Belgian tradition. Pretty good brew overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bit of a gusher straw pour with a huge frothy white head. Yeasty wheaty aroma hints of honey some white peeper a bit of white bread. Avg palate. Sweet taste honey and candied sugars on bread a bit of cardamon. A touch to sweet.
