COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark amber wheat beer features fruity and spicy aromas galore. Significant strength underlies the pleasant citric appeal of this bock beer. Redolent with the flavors of harvest fruit, Moonglow typifies the traditional weizenbock-style so thoroughly enjoyed throughout Bavaria. Left unfiltered, its unique yeast strain gives Moonglow a radiance all its own.

Dacrza (774) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2016
UPDATED: APR 23, 2016 DATE: April 22, 2016... OCCASION: Cavs up 3-0, Joey’s first tee ball game, and a better end to the school day than expected... GLASSWARE: Schneider’s Weisen pokal... APPEARANCE: the glass divides into a robust copper body that houses a lazy effervescence and a thick, craggy, resistant white head that pillows nicely... AROMA: fragrant, earthy spiciness suggests hops, though the main aroma is an astringent vapor that says 8.7% up front... banana and clove, yes... PALATE: slick, medium-bodied, vibrant body that leaves a tingling at the throat... the aftertaste lingers, but pleasantly so... TASTE: banana and clove, with the bread and toast of a malt-forward beer... enough fruitiness--apple, plum--to complicate the profile.... slightly acidic and sweet--challenging to nail down, but enjoyable in its weight and strength... OVERALL: another victory for Victory--an autumn glory that rises in the spring, and shows enough complexity to encourage the next sip... BIG but balanced and packaged in a palatable way...

Bottle from Beer Cartel 080416. This really is a great beer that is dark in colour with a thick coffee coloured foam cap. Great flavour with a full body and long aftertaste with a big kick of alcohol to finish off.

It is amber that is slightly on the dark side. It has a moussy, tan head. It is hazy and cloudy. It has aromas of bread, plums, and a bit of vanilla. It also has an alcohol aroma. As it warms, the aroma of banana and raisins become evident. It has rich, bread malt flavors with a spicy, clove element. There is moderate wheat flavors and banana. There is a faint tart bite with a sherry like quality that adds to the overall complexity of the beer. It has a medium full body. There is a pleasant warming sensation. It also is highly carbonated.

Appearance is hazy amber with a medium white head. Aroma is spices. Taste is a blend of spices, warm alcohol, and a touch of bitterness. Overall good and balanced.

bottle - Pours hazy amber with a two finger head. It smells of yeast, cloves, and bananas. It tastes sweet with a yeasty character, spices, caramel, and wheat. Medium bodied. Mild bitterness. The high abv is a little surprising as it’s well concealed.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours copper with a big and fluffy off-white and lacing. The aroma is banana, clove, yeast, and spice. The taste is banana, chocolate, spice, bread, and some hop bitterness. It’s smooth with nice carbonation. This is pretty tasty with a nice balance of flavors.

Maris (1305) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2016
From a 355ml bottle on 24/2/2016. Pours amber with a medium head. Has a a light banana nose with some spice in the mix. The flavour is sweet and fruity (more banana), with cloves, rye bread and light spices. Has a fullish body, a slick texture and relatively lively carbonation. Drinks a lot light than 8.7%. Pretty solid if not particularly remarkable.

hawthorne00 (3276) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Pretty clear brown with an off white head. Wheaty and toasty aroma with prunes, dried banana, raisins, cloves. 7+ Rich but not that sweet, reasonably high high carbonation keeps it cheerful when it could be heavy. Some orange and lemon along with pepper and cloves brightens things too. Quite spicy with dried fruit and toasty flavours underneath. Some bitterness as well as spices at the end. Maybe a bit clinical, but a pretty solid drop.
