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.

Pours cloudy deeply golden appearance. Nice dense foamy head. Traditional Belgian taste with quite a high abv but not noticeable. Awesome for a fresh traditional Belgian brewed in the great land of 10,000 beers

Wow, glad I tried one more Olvalde. This one goes on the shopping list. It’s got great barnyard notes I love, nice malt, a bit of warmth, some spice and dark forest fruit, all coming together in a complex presentation that still allows the parts to be savored.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle:   Fiery straw, a bit hazy, moderate foamy white head, nice lacing.   Funky farmhouse like nose.   A little creamed honey, a bit barnish, musty.   Its almost like a Saison.   Smooth and sweet on the tongue, a bit zesty.   This is great stuff!   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Saison like, also citrus zest, with a nice straw/hay like finish.   Great balance, a touch dry.   If this is what they drank 2,000 years ago, I’m jealous!   Thanks Bob!

Bomber. Sampling session at Lefty’s. Yeast, stank, and honey nose. Cloudy medium straw. Honey, caramel, yeast / sweetish malt, some herbs, and some oxidation / finish is sweet and fairly smooth. Medium body. Herbal, overly sweet, and unusual. Nice enough. Bring on the broadswords!

Hypo_Luxa (53) - Osaka, JAPAN - NOV 3, 2013
Smells of honey. Light. Tastes of Chinese medicine, watered down honey, Finishes with a taste that is Japanese arajio (a kind of salt that goes on red rice). Very fun beer. Totally different.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1338) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 3, 2013
At a tasting at KyotoLefty’s place. An opaque honey brown pour with a thick foamy head. The aroma is spicy, sour & honey. A medium body reveals a really interesting beer: fruity, honey, farmyard, salty goodness. Very nice & unique.

markwise (4310) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle courtesy of khoffman. Cheers, Kyle! Pours a hazy yellow with a white sodalike head. Nose is big honey, some sugar cubes, dry yeast, floral notes, fruity esters. Flavor is similar with honey, spice, and fruit in the front followed by honey, sweetness, and yeast in the finish. Medium in body an interesting overall.
