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.

Taste is very sweet, yeasty, and sour (bananas, apples, plums, raisins). Nice mixture between the bock and the wheat. Not for me though.

Shag (2839) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Aroma is wheat, grapes, lemons, bananas and caramel. Apperance is a murky brown with a moderate off white head and fair lacing. Flavor is syrupy with a very strong grape presence. A good kick of sour fruit, banana, wheat, and tart apples. The finish is thick on the tounge with a moderate alcohol burn. A nice beer and something to be sipped on slowly. I've heard of an infection problem on the best by 8/20/04 bottles but my bottle seems fine. And if its a bacteria causing the pleasent sourness, then rock on bottle infection! Once again I thank cb and TAR for providing this beer.

muzzlehatch (4758) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2004
12 oz bottle. Bready, yeasty, lemony in the nose -- is this a "weizengueuzebock"? Infected perhaps -- not very bock-like at all, though the bottle didn't gush as infected beers are wont to do. Very acidic and carbonated, little in the way of "bock" or wheat profile, more citrusy than caramelly or woody/smoky. Still, infected or not, off-style or not, it's tasty and worth a try. I hope to have it again and find out if this bottle was a sport.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2004 Citric aroma bouncing off wheaty yeast...Chocolate earth underneath the lemony profile...If Schoune had a weizenbock, this would be it...Is this a tasty infection or just how it is supposed to be?...

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2004 This beer pours a brown body with low apparent carbonation and a very quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma is of banana, brown sugar and citric notes (grapefruity). Not too complex and no Aventinus. Taste has a light sourness from the wheat and more banana/brown sugar flavours. Body is thin-medium. I don't think this was infected, but still it had a sourness that seems out of order in this style. Luckily I've got another bottle and a re-rate is in order. Thanks Mike!

The_Beer_God with the hook up on the MoonGlow, I let this baby sit for a few months so I think it’s about ripe, ~ Thanks Mike!

Pours a mahogany body with a THICK and frothy kaki head. Nice malty fruity aroma, nose of apples, peaches, apricots, plums, tangerine, and a dry yeastiness. Lets take a sip….. kind of a sour shock that I was not expecting! I certainly picks up some sweet toffee / caramel notes in the finish but he initial punch has a bitter doughy rotten lemon bite, very strange. It’s like an old bruised pear with some coriander, clove and nutmeg sprinkled atop. But the finish fades to a herbal spicy honey resemblance… I don’t know what’s going on with this brew? I’m on the fence with this one……. I wish I could show this brew more love but it’s just kind like an armpit with honey and spice.

desurfer (1283) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2004
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.

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
