Bottle shared at Muckfest 2009 in Lancaster Ohio. Courtesy of Aspidites. I am so glad I FINALLY opened this beer. Sweet nose of of vanilla and cherries. Flavor was honey, vanilla, and sweet tarts. Sweet up front with some funky sourness on the back. This beer is several years old, so I am not sure if that was intentional or not, but it was still very drinkable and good!

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Thanks to SoLan! Nice funk in the nose with some cherries, oak and malts. Flavors are tart and malty with a little sweetness. A little strange, but in a good way. Very good brew.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Courtesy aspidites. Clear amber. Small white head. Plenty of sweetness left considering the age. Subdued cherry and oak, a light twang of wheat, some candy like malt sweetness, a bit yeasty, bit of funk and dryness on the end. Full body, balanced carbonation. Very nice brew.

Bottle shared by AlohaC at toncatacher’s tasting. I still haven’t found a Valley Brew beer I haven’t liked. Some tart and some sweet. HInts of cherry, but more malty flavors I think. Pretty darn tasty though

Bomber from AlohaC at Toncatcher’s Tasting. This is a funky cool fun blend I like it. Pours orange with a half finger tan head. Nose is sweet with a lot of wheat wine qualities. Taste is sweet and tart, with wheat wine tones and a wide range of flavor.
