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.

Rich copper color. Aroma is wheaty lemon, a bit of sweet malt, some hints of dark fruit. This is an odd combination of flavors. Sweet and wheaty, slightly alcoholic, yeasty with a bit of lemon.

shadey (2079) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 2, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2007 Pour is a copper red with a small creamy head. Malty spicy aroma with that standard weizen smell. Pretty damn good in this man’s humble opinion. Weizenbocks are far from my standard lineup, so it was nice to have something different. 7/3/6/3/15.
RERATE: 2006 Version. Dark muddy brown color with a thin white creamy head of tiny bubbles. Aroma is sweet and malty with a touch of something citric. Flavor is smooth, well blended smokey sweetness and that raspy wheat finish. Just a hint of citrus hidden somewhere. Pretty tasty.

Cobra (1100) - - SEP 28, 2004
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. One of a six-pack. Freshness date is of Mar 01 05. Loud pfftt when opened. Poured out a hazy, orangish caramel color, with a huge tan head at first. It slid back to a thin lacing on top of the beer itself. Aromas are of orange caramel cremes, cloves, slight bubblegum, not too much in the way of banana, yeasty bread, and fresh malts. Tastes are of oranges, caramel cremes, cloves, malts, vanilla, and the flavors change as the beer warms up. Thick, rich mouthfeel, creamy and smooth. Alcohol hits you as it’s swallowed, warming you right up. Finishes somewhat fruity, and alcoholic. A really well made Weizenbock.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2004 Ruby red, fizzy off-white head. Has a spicy and fruity (apples, cherries, blueberry, lemon) barleywine-like aroma with a minimal amount of hops and a touch of yeast. Taste has a sour aspect to it.... a little tart with citrusy cherry, some slight woody hops and topped with wheat. Full bodied, and a little thick.

GoldenSpunky (120) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Definitely a great seasonal bock that is great for any occasion. The spicyness of the beer makes me long for cool fall nights and trick or treaters. Not much aroma to this beer but the taste is exceptional and not what I expected. This beer is definitely worth a try.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2004
This was a fantastic beer. It poured a nice cloudy reddish brown with a very bubbly head. The aroma was a variety of fruitiness and spiciness, and the taste was very similar. This is a great beer to relax with in the late summer or early fall and one that I highly recommend.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 23, 2004
Fresh 04 bottle. Deep ultra hazy browns and oranges, creamy khaki colored head. The nose is filled with spicy clove, banana, pear, caramel, and yeasty bread dough. The flavor is similar with notes of spiced fruit, malt, and only a a slight hint of hops at the very end. Medium to full bodied, fizzy carbonation, smooth, spicy, fruity finish. This beer is perfect for those crisp cool Autumn nights....

Tap @ Blind Tiger. Something about Victory beers I’m not liking much anymore. The alcohol taste is the first thing I notice. There doesn’t seem to be too much balance, as the malt is all over the place. Small head. Alcohol aroma. Lightly sour.
