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.

nuplastikk (4270) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Draft at Jacs. Cloudy unfiltered orange-hued brown. Steady creamy beige head. Clovy, sweet banana aroma. A really well executed Weizenbock, could hang with the Germans. Big and rich, but creamy and very drinkable. Sweet banana yeast tones. Rich malty undercurrents, caramel touched.

sailracer (389) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours a deep, hazy orange with an orange tinted head that dissipates fairly quickly. The aroma is sweet, malty and yeasty. The taste is slightly spicy and sweet with wheat undertones. The aftertaste is slightly citrusy with a little alcohol burn. Excellent overall. One of my favorite beers of any style.

Victory has been making high end beer for only a short time. This is so good. Honey gold, light head with clean finish. It’s always here. Price is the same as most other victory beers.

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Draft at iron abbey. Gorgeous amber pour with haze and thick head. Aroma is rich dark fruits with no spice. Taste is sweet. Slight citrus presence is secondary to caramel flavors. Finishes very quick and clean. Hides the alcohol well. Really nice.

iugrad93 (266) - Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Pours a dark copper with little white head and no lacing. Aromas of spices, and mild alcohol. Taste is mildly sweet, some bitterness. Palate is medium body, flat palate, short finish. Overall, this is not my style and I really need to have more of this style to truly to say if this is a good beer. But for me, not my favorite.
