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.

Dark amber with a tall pale yellow head. Aroma is a little wheaty, but mostly fruity. Taste is sweet, with a smooth and slightly spicy finish.

maley1 (1042) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2015
On tap. Cloudy orange/amber pour with large white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, caramel, cloves, banana and faint fruits. Taste of wheat, oranges, caramel, cloves, banana, bread dough and yeast. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, well balanced, slight alcohol burn. Only drawback was it became slightly cloying at the finish. Delicious beer!

Enjoyed from a growler purchased from Victory. Murky dark amber appearance. Banana, plum, cloves, cherries, and spices on the nose. Taste has a well-balanced sweetness with a mixture of flavors mirroring those aromas. Smooth full bodied mouth feel with moderate carbonation. Excellent weizenbock. Give it a try if you like the style.

Smells and tastes like banana bread and clove. One of my favorite fall beers. One of my favorite beers in general.

BillWyce (959) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Pours hazy orange-amber with a 2-finger bone-colored head. Most prominent note in the complex aroma is of banana esters, with notes of apple and bread. Full-bodied and syrupy, with an astringent finish. Flavor of apple mixed with nutty malt up front, giving way to a banana note.

Very nice mouth feel w/ a Belgian complexity that makes this an excellent beer! Pours amber w/ a big foamy tan head that leaves lacing. The aroma is quite Belgian esque w/ banana & spices. The taste is dead on w/ the banana & spice really standing out. It’s soft on the palate at nearly 9% & dangerously drinkable. Quite good!!

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Attractive amber pour with a tremendous head. Neat aroma of roasted malts, light spice, vague fruit and sweetness. The body is medium. The fruity character really expresses itself in the flavor with the roasted malts and other characters there -but down below. Mild finish. Decent drinking.

b3shine (7859) - Indiana, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a cloudy caramelish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells malty and yeasty with notes of dark fruit and clove. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Solid beer, but overrated IMO.

DocJitsu (1570) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Pours a murky orange-copper with no head. Faint smokiness and tartness are dominated by a Fall cuisine spicy quality in the aromas. Healthy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. A faint tartness is no match for the rich but dull sweetness. Pumpkin, caramel, candied quality, and a tart fruitiness.

Shot (398) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish gold with a huge, thick head. Aromas are definitely banana and clove, like a Belgian ale. Flavors are bubble gum, banana, clove, fruitiness--melon and grape--and spice. A fruity, spicy Belgian. Clean mouthfeel. Not bad.
