Olvalde The Auroch’s Horn Beer Review

A week or two ago I had my first sit-down experience with Minnesota’s Olvalde Farm and Brewing Company, with a bottle of Olvalde Brynhildr’s Gift. That experience left me with a desire to check out more of their beer, and tonight I will try out Olvalde The Auroch’s Horn, which is a Belgian Strong Pale Ale with 10% Alcohol By Volume (ABV).

Olvalde The Auroch’s Horn is a hazy, deep amber into orange colored beer, sporting a voluminous and sticky cream colored head.

The nose has some underlying caramel malt, but focuses on Belgian spice, light fruits and a dab of honey.

The taste is quite complex, with pale and wheat malt starting things off, plenty of spicy aspects, pear, apple, grape, honey, yeasty, with the alcohol providing just a bit of well-blended spice. The mouth is fairly full bodied and smoothly carbonated.

After taking a couple of  cracks at Olvalde Farm and Brewing Company’s beers, I now know why they are regarded as a hard to find treat. The Auroch’s Horn has a lot of well put together complexity, providing a great tasting beer with plenty of layers to explore. Definitely worth checking out.
