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.

Aroma: heavy sweet wheat, intense caramel, vanilla, banana. Appearance: hazy amber, small, white, creamy head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: sweets and bitters balance, yet sweets eventually dominate, wheat, malts very pronounced. Overall: nice Weizenbock, with excellent palate and aroma. Pint at Rattle N Hum, Manhattan.

12 ounce bottle. Hazy amber orange color. Huge foamy beige head. Rich caramel wheat malt aroma has notes of cloves and banana. Funky yeast character. Tropical coconut nose. Sweet toasted wheat maltiness. Some nuttiness and citrus hops. Dry bitter finish. Quite good.

trapped (892) - New York City, TURKEY - OCT 9, 2014
Drought. Hazy copper red with very small foamy white head, doughy aroma, low carbonation, flat taste, abrupt finish with alcohol aftertaste. The final product feels neither like weizen nor bock.

Solid. Aroma is typical clove / banana. Pours deep orange / yellow with a light tan head. Smooth, medium body. Finishes with a slight citrus and bread bite.

Really good. Very nice aroma and a smooth malty taste with a smooth finish. Really delicous on a fall day

12 oz. bottle, best by Aug 15, 2015. Sent for review by Victory. Yep, all these powerhouse ratings, and they still want a little pub. I’m well-disposed toward Victory, anyway. (This should satisfy requirements for Full Disclosure). Foams up a bit as I pour into a smaller wheat glass. Ocher color under a big puffy head. Smell has some carrot cake and even pumpkin pie spice to it, but only from yeast, so it would make a nice fall seasonal. Taste has big German malts, kilned to caramel texture and with plenty of banana and bubble gum weizen esters. Malts hold up the extra alcohol. A bit strong for a "main course" beer, but it would be welcome against an onslaught of holiday feasting.

Pours muddy bronze with medium frothy head; brown sugar and spice aromas; creamy mouthfeel with dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"another solid brew from Victory. the aroma and flavor are both very pleasant and complex. fruity yeast and spices and wheat. the only thing lacking is the feel, which was a little highly carbonated at first, and a touch watery at the end. otherwise, they nail the style."

A style I will buy again, this weizenbock best buy is 8/2015 so a very fresh beer.some banana notes-like the mouthfeel.do pick on the higher ABV for this style.

taster @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber, good off-white head cover, streaks of lace. Taste is sticky sweet malt that has little competition, making for a beer that arrives at the finish with no change.and no balance. No noticeable hops, no carbonation, no recommendation
