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

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.

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 !

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

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.

Pours a clear pale orange with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma of yeast and grain with some slight alcohol. Flavor of honey, spice, caramel and light bitterness in the finish.

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.
