Notes/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.

Crystal clear regal gold body. Caronbation is visible in the body. Slight white cap leaves sparse lace. Great melange of cakey yeastiness, pear esters, baked bread and light spiciness on the nose. Really strong and enjoyable aroma. Flavor is really top notch. First impression is it reminds me of St. Bernardus Tripel the first time I had it and I thought "WOW". Such nice yeastiness and doughiness, breadiness....liquid bread. Nice pear and apple accents. Sweet malt center, but quite delicate. Slight spice Body is light and the feel is effervescent. Alcohol, for a 10% beer, is barely detectable. This could be a dangerous beer. Very impressed.

Was considering opening this when I noticed I had already reviewed this on ratebeer. Yikes.

The beer is orange with minimal head. The imparts booze, hints of nail polish, odd. The flavor brings sweet nail polish and fruit. WTF? This beer is just weird and wrong. Rhubarb is there but doesn't fit in. Pass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.61/5  rDev +14.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Hazy light orange with a 2 finger rocky white head with very nice retention and lots of lacing. The aroma has peaches, pears, Belgian yeast, pepper, and pale malts.

The taste is sweet with peaches, pears, Belgian yeast, apples, and pale malts, with bitterness for balance provided by pepper, and other spices. This tastes every bit as good as some of the best Belgian Strong Pale Ale's I have ever had.

Medium bodied with above average carbonation. Has a lightly sweet aftertaste, and the alcohol is well hidden for 10.00 % abv. Olvalde Farm continues to make fantastic beers. I can't wait to see what they come up with next.
