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.

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.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 19, 2003
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.

Average sized fizzy off-white head. Hazy dark orange/amber. Aroma is sweet malty and wheat. Very rich malt and wheat flavors. Hint of alcohol. Creamy medium body. An excellent brew.

Banana beer! Smells like bananas and tastes like bananas. Masks the 8.7% ABV very well, and there are no messy banana peels to mess with or slip on. Elvis would have liked this beer with his grilled peanut butter sandwiches. Overall it was a good beer, that can get you in trouble if you're not careful, due to the high ABV.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2003 This beer rocks! Murky, burnt orange brew. Medium-sized, frothy, lightly tanned head. Retains very well. Yeasty and spicy nose with lots of clove, banana, and apricot. Some black pepper and bubblegum too. The flavor is lightly tart and fruity. Nice malt presence. Also, some white wine and white raisin. Well-balanced by the tangy yeast and bitter hops. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. I don't care much for wheat beers, but this one is a real winner!

Christmas comes early to Canton NY, formerly a beer wasteland as local beerstore has picked up full Victory line among other notable NY, PA and NE micros! Wow, first of this style I think I have ever had. Looks like fresh pressed apple cider, banana and pear nectar, alcohol well hidden. My guess is that the yeast is same as used in golden monkey.

Dark amber,red color,small head,nice aroma sweet,and spicey with some definate fruit tones to it.The taste was fantastic fruity and spicey with some definate maltiness to it.The after taste was spicey and mildly fruity.This is a wonderful brew and i would highly recommend this one.It has a little of everything and the alcohol really is well hidden IMO I wouldn't drink this one in large amounts but it definately is worth sampling in a limited basis.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2003 Enjoy by Sep 11 04: Cloudy copper color with a thick dark tan head and a citrusy spiced wheat aroma. Body is sweet, caramely malty and has a lightly sour sticky warming finish. Earthy character has some fruity notes as well. Had a bad/soured bottle previously with expiration date of 3/6/03, but this bottle is much better. A very nice weizenbock.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2009 2009: The more I drink this over the years, the less I like it. Unreastrained spiciness. Too hot. 2003 batch: Gee, this is horrible and it has gotten worse as time has gone on. Bad batch, I should think. Poured most of it out last night. My apologies to those I sent it to. Won’t touch ratings until I sample another batch of the 2003 release. 2002 batch:Weizenbocks are wonderful and of course this wonderful brewery produces a wonderful version. Huge spice, huge tropical fruit in the nose and mouth. Creamy, wonderful palate. A first-rate Weizenbock (though I rarely have bad ones). The only weakness is the strength of the head on this one. Still, top drawer.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - JAN 30, 2003
SPices galor in the nose, banana, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, orange zest, touches of doughy yeast, fermenting fruit, alcohol, bandaid, and wheat. Burning sunset color with globs of yeast floating about but the tan head was too short lived, infact the apearance scor is shearly supported by the color. As it warms more of a bready malt comes out and helps to balance the dry zesty mouth feel. Almost like a saison in the mouth. Loots of citrus in the taste with cloves, minerals, banana bread, and dried fruits. Banana cloves, wheat in the finish were expected but was also pleasantly surprized by Mint and mellon hideing there too.
