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.

Thanks to The_Beer_God for this one. It pours an amber/brown, super hazy, with a quickly dissipating, fizzy tan head. Aroma very yeasty and spicy, with the usual banana and clove notes. Flavor is tart, acidic, and dry with a lingering sweetness. Very wheaty as well. The 8.7% is not noticeable at all.

obxdude10 (2111) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2004
Amber in color, nice off-white head, lots of spices all over the place in this beer, banana & clove in the nose as well as in the flavors, a bit of a yeasty finish with more banana

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Dark caramel color with a large sand colored head. Strong wheat characteristics in aroma, yeast, banana, cloves. A sweet tasting bread with the alcohol not noticable. Very good.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Medium brown with a huge beige head that faded fast and left no lace. Apples , bananas, clove and cinnamon. Not what I expected, but tasty nonetheless

bu11zeye (12155) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 24, 2003
(Bottle) Pours a cooper-brown color with a medium beige head. Has multiple fruit flavors of banana, apple, and lemon, as well as some spicy flavor.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2003
Brown, little head, cloudy with yeast. Strong banana nose. Medium sweet with banana wheat tanginess. (I'd probably be more impressed with this beer if it didn't taste shockingly like my second batch of homebrew, which was the result of accidentally adding 20% too much malt to the brew kettle!).

Indra (2700) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Spicy, estery aroma, definite banana and clove, some bready, malty, caramel sweetness, cookie dough, also just a bit of sour, rotting fruit, and perhaps a tad of mustiness. Light reddish-brown color, hazy and sedimented, with a lasting, creamy, ivory head. Flavor is a mixture of sweet, grainy caramel maltiness, citrusy lemon, mushy old brown banana, apple juice, spices, yeast and peppery alcohol in the finish along with a faint amount of hop bitterness. Rather unwelcome fizzy palate, medium-full body. Suffering from a sour infection and a lack of integration. Finishable but not good. It can't be meant to taste like this, but this is apparently a widespread problem with this and other Victory beers. Quality Control dept. not exactly earning their keep over there, methinks.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Pour is a cloudy mahogany, medium sized tan head that mostly diminishes and leaves small bits of lace. Aroma is strong on the banana, some grain (think banana bread), and some sugary sweetness. Flavor is sweet, fruity (banana, apple, pear), and ends with some spiciness. Fairly full bodied, slightly acidic.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2003 Bottle. Not much carbonation and no head, disappointing for a wheat beer. Lemony zest doesn't do it for me. This gets worse with each sampling

I thought of a good cooking apple that was somewhat sweet, with some sourness, but not overly acidic. Very rich Ruby color.
