It's hard to put down this excellent bock beer. Moderate yeasty aroma, dark amber color with a doughy-yeasty, smokey flavor. A fresh draft of Moonglow is a rare treat, and worth seeking out.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2009 Pours an amber with a very quickly dissipating 1cm light yellow head. Aroma is rather malty without much going on. Start is smoky with a yeast flavor--typically of a belgian. A very unique and strange brew by the Victory people. Not a favorite of mine from them.(6/4/7/4/13 9/29/03)----Re-Rate-& ounce bottle purchased from Village Beer Merchant in Buffalo, NY. Spicy, peppery aroma with plenty of banana yeast esters. Clove also makes a strong presence. A little vinousness is also in there. Moderately hazy amber body with a small quickly dissipating off-pinkish head. Starts a little sweet, but becomes a bit astringent in the middle. Lots of banana yeast esters follow. Some dry, dusty wheat character also makes an appearance. Seems kind of thin and watery to finish. It just appears to be lacking.

Burnt hazy orange-brown body with a large taupe head that had a nice waterfall as I poured. Aromatic banana creme combines with alcohol, cloves and candy sugar for an intoxicating aroma. . . interesting mixture of flavours with good fruits: melons, bananas and strawberries. . .as well as dough, autumn spices (pumpkin) and wheat. Strength of this brew is in the fruit, and yeast, complex, yet very drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A really cool hazy blood orange color, similar to a sunset. The head, while a light tan color, was very small and left no lacing. An odd, but pleasant, aroma, to be sure. Very estery with banana, bubblegum, clove, cantelope, alcohol and very slight citrus notes. Smooth, flavorful body that is neither too thick nor too thin. The flavor profile very much followed the nose and pleasantly maintained expectations. Warming, as the alcohol is fairly obvious. This is one very tasty Weizen Bock. It has obvious variations from Aventinus, but it's one quality, tasty beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wonderful dark ruby brown haze with big of white head and great lace. Powerful yeast aroma, caramel, fruit. Gigantic beer, full on yeast, candy sugar like a Belgian strong, full wheat body, carbonation is perfectly soft, seems best about 45-50F. Some alcohol in the finish, plus some sharp cheddar, sweet and berries. Incredibly easay to drink yet potent, thoroughly complex. Another victory for Victory.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pretty solid weizenbock, I must say - dark brown, no real head or lacing, though - spicy, tart aroma, with a hint of pumpkin - flavor is a bit tart as well, but with enough sweetness to balance it out - caramel, banana, cloves and spices mix together to make this a pretty good autumn beer.

Pours with a deep amber-brown body with a slight cloudiness topped by a medium thick off white head with good lacong. Slightly sweet and yeasty wheaty malt aroma with notes of banana and clove. Slighlty sweet wheat and malt flavor with slight yeasty notes and subtle notes of banana and other fruits. The finish is sweet and fruity. Medium bodied with a tingle from the carbonation.
