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.

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 (8048) - 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 (1658) - 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 (432) - 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.

From the tap at Sam's. Very enjoyable. Rich and flavorful. Dark fruits, banana, bubblegum and rich malts. Strong but balanced.

PartyFowle (954) - - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle. Dark copper hue with mild haze and a fluffy tan head. Aroma is fruity: banana, pear, orange juice, brandy, cocoa, a little ethanol. Really nice. The flavor isn’t as well-put-together, kicking off with booze before raisin, bread crust, banana and pear swoop in. Disjointed at first, but comes together at the finish. Medium body; mild massaging CO2; noticeable warmth. Tasty.

perpetuitas (29) - Scarborough, Maine, USA - SEP 21, 2015
I love their accurate version of the style. A bit bolder than traditional but not much. Bready aromas with subtle malty nuttiness and fruitcake and a head that lingers nicely leaving intense lacing along the sides as you quaff this tasty beverage.

bytemesis (6591) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Tap. Pours clear deep reddish Amber, small beige head, creamy with nice lacing. Aroma is full of wheat, clove, banana. Flavor follows, medium sweet, lots of clove, some banana, a bit spicy, light caramel and pimpernickel. Medium plus body, creamy mouthfeel. A bit hot.

Pours deep amber, creamy white head, excellent retention. Caramel, clover, banana, nutmeg, clove, malt. Love me some weizenbock. Love me some Victory. Prost!
