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.

My 100th rating! Bottle. This beer helped me to realize that I much prefer a weizen bock to a hefeweizen. A musty spice aroma hit first, but the scent melted into more of a sweet molasses, dough aroma. The appearance was a cloudy dark amber with a little frothy head that faded into a white ring with stay power. The palate was medium bodied fizzer, light to the tongue with that fizzy finish. The complex taste started off with wheat grain notes that melded into that bock molasses and dough finish. Delicious!

TampaBeer (255) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Good initial flavors, very nice appearance. Halfway through the tasting it becomes un-extraordinary. There are some problems on the finish - ranging from weak to a slightly dead off-taste.

DSG (5829) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 7, 2012
Bottle at a winter beers tasting at Norma Jean. Cloudy brown with a frothy off-white head. Fruity aroma of banana, a bit of bubblegum notes and a bit of caramelly malt hints. Sweetish flavor, wheaty and yeasty, with some caramel, some fruit esters and some spiciness towards the finish. Medium-bodied. Not bad.

callmemickey (2825) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Reviewed from notes (2007). A: Rich red/brown body with a moderate tan head S: Spicy banana blast upfront... this beer smells fairly sweet with a hint of alcohol. T: A natural, fruity sweetness... bananas and apples are most noticable with a bit of caramel for balance... you feel the ABV but you certainly don’t taste it M: A full body is helped by lively carbonation O: Very drinkable considering the malty sweetness and the high ABV.
