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.

Murky amber tones mingle with a quickly disappearing head. Smells like a handful of cloves and a silo full of wheat. There is something about the total blend of flavor in this that makes it really nice I think. There is an initial sour citrus followed by a big wheaty malt, ending with a final flourish of hops that finishes with a peppery spice aftertaste. Very complex and very nice. [2002 batch]

Hazy golden color. Quickly diminishing head. Quite a bit of carbonation. Cidery sweet aroma. Tart, acidic banana taste.

Nice golden orange color. A big malty and sweet aroma. BIG clove character, nice malty profile as well. Spicy, banana, fruit, and a big estery palate to finish. Really enjoyable beer.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - DEC 28, 2002
Sweet aroma with a little pepper. No head at all. Tastes flat. Can taste clove, spice, peach. Has a nice sweet start with a tart hoppy finish. Has Belgian flavors with German spice. Gets better and better with every sip. My overall impression was a 14 at first and is now a 16.

Estery, medium sour, just off dry. Yeast, fruit hues in a primarily carmel nose, the taste is a solid blend of viney hop, fruit, wheaty grist, and orange/apple. It’s missing a bright spot, but this beer is a champ. Thanks, VENOM!

A wonderfully flavored beer that you can drink all day long. When German style beers are made as well as this, it is hard to drink anything else. In a great lineup of beers, this may be Victory’s best.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2002
Nice amber weizenbock that possessed a distinctive fruitness that one often finds in Belgians. Excellent taste and lovely finish. Strong yeast and grain flavors. NOTE- Pour slowly as, at least in my bottle, there were bits of the ’magic yeast extract’ in the bottom.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2004 glistining amber atmospheric clouds of froth..aroma was deep maple syrup-like super malty thick and sweet craziness..alcohol firmness in the background..flavor was first slightly acidic turning cereal like in the finish but in the middle it had notes of grapes with added grape tartness that took it out of the weizenbock arena and threw it into the god-knows-what arena..interesting concotion..with a definite banana aftertaste

Medium/dark clear amber - very pretty in the glass. There is a lot going on in the flavor dept and it is bold, but does not assault. The fruit/spice essence is so well balanced that the outcome is just plain delicous. Quite an accomplishment.
