Valor is a Belgian-style ale that is unique to Bruz. It is a golden orange ale that is refreshingly bitter with soft fruit esters from a unique Belgian yeast strain. Valor is then finished with Brettanomyces wild yeast, which gives the beer a lemony tartness and a hint of jasmine. Valor is aged for six months or more to bring out the nuances of aroma and flavor. The tartness intensifies with age, so bottle-aging it is well worth the wait. On occasion, one-year and two-year old versions of Valor are available at the brewery. At all ages, Valor is a celebration in a bottle!
APPEARANCE: Golden orange color – slightly hazy with a creamy white head
FOOD PAIRINGS: The light-bodied tartness of Valor cuts through the richness of foods like roast turkey and duck. The same goes for cheeses like triple-crème brie and washed-rind cheeses like Epoisses.
