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.

Hazy dark amber with a big tan head. Aroma is estery and a bit sweet, with typical weizen spiciness. Alcohol is noticeable up front, but its presence diminishes towards the finish. Flavor has notes of lemon, pepper, coriander, and some grape. Not a big fan of wheat beer in general, but this is pretty good.

This big ol wheat beer makes me happy, especially since Im on a wheat kick. Theres a beautifully dark, cloudy pour. Good taste with lots of interesting flavors to pick up.

I beg your pardon? 8.7%? Wow - this is a deliciously drinkable big beer. Gorgeous hazy amber brown body with a thin bubbly off-white head. Spicy and citrusy on the nose, with definite banana and malt. Coats the mouth with a pretty creamy mouthfeel and a wheat and fruit malt flavour. Lingers for a while, nicely.

Interesting Weisse character. Very sweet malt. Heavy, but balanced. Alcohol is exceptionally well hidden.

If youre a fan of Golden Monkey definately treat yourself to this beer. It has a deep caramel coloring that if it was only a little thicker could be drizzled as a dessert topping. It spreads evenly across the palate offering a truly delectable treat.

Crockett (1113) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2005
Pours light hazy amber with a medium sized white head. Aroma is very tart of citrus and berries. Peppery and lots of yeast. Weak banana and caramel. Exepected more.. Finish was a little funky. Solid beer.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2005
This beer pours an amber/orange color with a thin white head which dissipated rather quickly and left little lacing..very weizenbock typical. Aroma is mild with notes of citrus, peppers, orange peel and malt. Sticky nose...you can almost tell this will have a sticky mouthfeel. Flavor is medium bodied and relativley light in carbonation as to what would have been expected. Grains and wheats are obviously apparent, but so is the slight tinge of alcohol in the finish. Banana, citrus, grape peel and grains are all over this beer, but theres that damn stickyness in the finish. Dry but sticky finish. Tongue-coating maltiness. Interesting fruityness, but overdone syrupy palate and alcohol presence.

Wheat beer is not my thing. But I were to drink a wheat beer this would be it. Kinda reminded me a golden monkey with the spices.
