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.

Soy sauce and fig aromas feature in the savory-infused fruitiness. Tomato, wood, clove, rubber, hops and a bit of wheat all poke through. Beer fizzes over the lip of the bottle. It appears a clear, bloody amber. Clove is more apparent when drinking. Fair bitterness. The flavour is well-rounded and hits all of the tongue. Full body. Slick and creamy. Hops linger on tongue along with a clove-infused sweetness.

Poured a slightly darkish leather. Yeasty and a tiny bit of bitterness. Not exceptionally flavorful.

Was skeptical about uploading review based on that this wasn’t fresh. Still, we’ll call this one an aged review. This was poured into a weizen glass. The appearance was a hazy bronzed orange color with a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds leaving less than slim messy lacing. The smell had a sweet dark fruits to gentle spice rolling into each other nicely. Light sweet bready notes balance nicely. The taste wraps together the spice with the breadiness, sweet yet gentle clove. There’s no aftertaste but it does have a slight gentle sticky sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable aspect to it. Carbonation seemed okay for the style but may have died a bit too since it’s an old bottle. Overall, for a weizenbock that came out last Autumn, I liked it now. I’m hoping to see it this coming Autumn as I’m sure it will be nice to sip on my deck overlooking a West setting Autumn sun.

Bottle at home. Aroma is banana bread, wheat, spice, red grapes. Creamy head. Tastes sweet, musty, funky yeast, earthy, cinnamon, overripe fruit. Quick finish for the high ABV.

Evolutionary (370) - Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Bottle in grand cayman. Nose is malt, raisin, and dark fruit. Pour is appropriate and clean. Medium thick body and unfiltered. Tart cherry note muted by malt and raisin feel. Bready but don't see much of the wheat it says.
