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.

radio_nowhere (814) - Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle into tulip glass, dirty orangy brown color with fluffy tan head. Aroma of wheat, caramel, banana, clove and citrus notes. Taste adds notes of fruity malt, bread, grainy, brown sugar and mild spices. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy, dry with crisp light bitter finish. Nice hefty lager for the cooling months.

12oz bottle, also by djd07 .. . i didn’t really like this too much .. . deep brown .. mild foam, spots of lacing .. . light mouth .. dirty flavours . . pretty weak effort from victory .. . .

There’s also a law requiring ducks to wear long pants.

--Let me see that!

Well i’ll be darned, long pants!

harrisoni (13702) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle that is probably out of date but given to me kindly by Toby. Cloudy dark brown colour. Lasting beige head. Oxidised aroma. Some sweet malts, not a huge amount of German flavour on this. Esters are minimal. Sweet malt and oxidisation.

djd07 (3553) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle as shown. Pours a murky orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a fruity malt and spice. Light fruity malt with wheat and sweet finish. Very good.

stevoj (2148) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Pretty good weizen bock, medium amber with thin head. Heavy malt masks the wheat backbone of this. Lacks the head of a real German weizen, but mouthfeel and overall body are pretty good. Medium weight winter warmer.
