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.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2006 (Best by 3/6/03) Strong yeasty nose that is abundant with ripe bananas. Beautiful hazy red color. The head is thin and off-white. The palate is rich and expressive with big flavors, most notable the typical clove and banana associated with this style. This beer is malty, but it is not overly sweet. The alcohol (8.7%) is so well hidden it is almost undetectable. The finish goes on forever, lots of candied fruit flavors with a touch of hop spiciness. It is a very enjoyable beer to have on a cold Baltimore night. A must try for Weizenbock fans.

Sort of a dark, spicy weizenbock with plenty of alcohol (but at 8.7% abv, it’s well-hidden). This is clearly a quality brew and I respect Victory for taking a stab at brewing such a challenging and unusual style. This tasted a lot like Aventinus.

Hazy dark amber body with minimal head. Aroma is spicy (mostly clove) and malty, slightly fruity (pear?) too. Taste is rich, mostly sweet wheat, but also malty, tart/acidic, and ever-so-slightly banana and pear. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. And oh yeah, it’s got HOW MUCH alcohol? Damn -- you’d never know.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2003 Rating #1 - Bottle (9 4 8 4 16). A cloudy brown with a touch of red and a healthy looking light brown head. A tart and malty aroma. The flavor is vinous, citric, malty, and slightly sour. This one is less weizen than other weizen bock beers I have had. It takes some of the spice and fruit qualities of the weizen, but the main thrust of the beer is the malty bock. Rating #2 - Bottle (8, 4, 7, 4, 16). A murky swamp brownish color with a laced tan head. The aroma has a spice that is a little sweet before it gives way to a malty bock nose. A citrus tart bite hits the flavor palate and melds into a german wheat and malty bock body while maintaining the dry tartness throughout.

Never had a weizenbock before this one, but i really liked it. Good head, but if you pour in the yeasties, it clouds up the color which is deep orange/amber. I think the added yeast helped in the aroma, which was of pear, and clover, and other fruitiness. Started out tasting more fruity, and finished up slightly spicy. Really smooth- alcohol is hidden really well, although it left a slight zing on my lips after it went down. Not too carbonated, which made it go down nice and easy. Well worth the price for a whole case. It will be gone fast.

almost like a hefeweizen, slight caramel with the clove/banana, alcohol hid well

This to me tasted a slight bit cider-y. You could taste the alcohol and what tasted like pears. Orange-amber appearance, decent head. Excellent Brew.
