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.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a Weizen glass. The label has a nice description and a freshness date. Appearance: Deep rich crimson highlights flow through a deep amber body with a slight haze. This is topped by a light beige colored and tightly packed head. The tall stiff foam hangs on well and makes lots of slick lacing on the glass. Smell: There are deep sweet fruity and bready notes with notes of wheat, banana bread with walnuts and over-ripe banana peel. Taste/Palate: The flavor matches the nose with a light dusting Dutch cocoa, fruity banana, dried apricots and a mild touch of hop spice. It also has a sweet and mellow abv warmth. The full body has a smooth creamy texture with plenty of soft carbonation. Notes: Outstanding!!!

Bottle from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer. Cloudy dark orange brown, reasonable head. Big malty aroma. Sickly sweet vanilla malt flavour. Strong sweet alcohol aftertaste. Too strong and sweet for me.

onceblind (9629) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2017
Clear deep amber hue with noticeable floaties and a lasting ivory head. Bready saison like aroma with some mild fruity esters and a semisweet dark wheat tone. Smooth mellow flavor that’s dark wheaty, slightly fruity, has a little kiss of orange and clove, with a smooth booze phenol warmth at the bready sweet end. Not shabby, but there’s too many floaties that I’m concerned over.

Experten: "Nyanserad, kryddig smak med liten sötma, inslag av aprikosmarmelad, sirapslimpa, kanel, kandisocker och pomerans." Amatören: "Jag kunde inte *hick* ha sagt det bättre *hick* själv!"

Pours clear amber, very little foam. Sweet autumn fruits aroma, bit of sugary and frostbitten pears, sweet and with a bitter edge. Taste is creamy, sweet and has some pumpkin spices for some reason. Small alcohol kick there as well but nothing too serious. Decent example of the style, malty, drinks easier than it should. Not overly sweet, which is a good thing in my book.

Pours a cloudy amber with a short-lived white head. Lots of caramel and spice present in this unfiltered wheat ale. Definitely recommend this one.

Bottle picked up from Wine Rack at Yarnton Nurseries, Yarnton, Oxon, consumed at home Sunday 19th March 2017 whilst cooking Fish Pies and Voodoo Pizzas. Hazy amber with not much of a head, a little boozy, wheaty, some banana toffee, soft in the mouth, fruity a touch of spice. This is decent infact most beers that i’ve had from Victory are very good, however not desparately exciting. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

malushky (135) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2017
330 ml bottle at Greenwich Union. Pours hazy copper, yeast floating, small, short-lived head. Aroma mostly of nuts, warm, some dough and alcohol present. Very nice taste, sweet, ripe fruits. Medium-bodied. Very good beer in overall, but could be more weizen-y for my taste.

3.4
Vestergaard (2089) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2017
From bottle thanks to Bursprak! Pours a hazy rusty amber with a small eggshell head. Aroma has toffee, bubblegum, light hops, estery, banana, wheaty malts. Taste is sweet and sticky, light boozy, hint of hoppy bitterness towards the end. Very yeasty. Oily, fluffy texture and a smooth carbonation.
