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.

On tap at World of Beer Gainesville. Murky dark yellow pour, ugly. Aroma is sweet banana esters, brown sugar, sweet sweet sweet. Flavor follows this closely, plus body, not bad. Overall just not quite right for me in the style, as the sweetness is just too much. But not awful.

My only real concern with this incredible USA-made weizenbock is that its not so cloudy, even though the bottle info indicates "unfiltered". Regardless, I think this would be nearly indistinguishable from Aventinus in blindfold taste test (Schneider’s has a bit more raisiny-ness I think). Excellent!

12oz bottle shared. Poured a murky dark amber/orange color with nice big off white head. The aroma is big wheat and spices. Very pleasant to the nose. The flavor is more of the same. Plenty of wheat and malt followed by spices and fruit. Crisp and clean with a tang reall like this beer.

Hazy red-brown pour. Nose of faint banana and apple with clove and toasted malt. Flavor is mildly sweet and fruity with apple, pear, and toasted malt. Mild plastic hops in the finish. Relatively dry and well carbed. Pretty nice.

Awesome brew. Four pack from ABC Lake Wales. Aroma is Belgian yeast, fruity, some light spice, bubblegum. Flavors are very similar. Tons of Belgian character and a great citrus and dark fruit flavor. Awesome stuff.

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 (1068) - 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.
