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.

Hazy burnt orange, fizzy. Smelled and tasted of alcohol and spicy pears along with a sweet yeasty finish. Very easy to drink, very tastey.

5 on appearance just because Victory’s labels are so freakin’ cool. As for the beer, it was amber and slightly cloudy, average head. Caramel, pears, hints of cideriness in the aroma and flavor. The strong wheatiness is overcome by silghtly stronger hoppiness in an interesting way. The alcohol content was well utilized: not prominent at all, but you could detect it adding complexity if you looked for it. Excellent dry finish, another winner from Victory.

Lovely red amber color with a perfect cream head. This beeer gives off a grainy malt odor of an unrefined nature. The sweet malt flavor is subjugated after the creamy from gives way to the desert wine taste--that leaves touches of cough syrup on the tongue’s tip. The body betters as the beer airs and warms--becoming more mature and developed. The alcohol is masked well, blending to accentuate the beers piquant notes.

There is no longer any doubt in my mind that Victory is the best brewery in the states. Wow. Aubrey, I should have just had you send me six of these! Beautifully redgold muddy and alive in the glass with a pungent inhale that trumpets ’WHEAT’. I just plain out love the contrast between the mouth puckering citrus and the smooth, creamy, banana action. Actually, now that I think about it, it’s a good thing I don’t have six of these, because I’d be a hopeless wreck for the dinner party I’m supposed to be hosting tonight. This is a great beer!

You know you’ll get a flavorful brew when you see the Victory name, but this is one of the least impressive I’ve had of their line. Deep, cloudy auburn color with a medium off-white head. Carbonation just kept going and going, and bubbles were still rising 3/4 of the way through the beer. Yeasty, caramelly and slightly sour aromas with bready malts and yeast in the flavor profile. The finish is quite sour - sour apple - with hop bitterness complimenting. Flavor is fairly full and the brew sits well on the tongue. A good beer, but not outstanding like many other Victory brews.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 Soviet Red with a big-bubbled and lasting head. A little cloudy, with some juicy floaties swimming about. Estery nose. Big sour-citric flavor. A little yeasty... and a little spicy. Reminds me of Rodenbach Grand Cru a little. Very citrusy and sour, mouth-puckering finish was great. Loved it! Rerate: Hazy and deep red-orange with a frothy head. Yeasty nose. Nice and rich texture; sort of milkshake-like. Malts were wheaty and doughy, and rather sugary. Flowery, balancing bitterness. Complex fruit notes throughout, such as plums, apricots, prunes and raisins.

SOme great flavors intermixed with some unwelcome ones. Heavy esters. Almost underattenuated. A tough style.
