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.

Drat at the brewery. Good beer. Nice Weisse aroma and taste. Along with a sweet malt flavor. Very well balanced.

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.

Opaque dirty copper-orange with a fizzy head. Medicinal aroma with a tart orange-alcohol flavor, yet easy to drink. Nice.

Color is a darker caramel with light white head. nose is full of light fruits, sugar, some bannana, and yeast. Taste is simalar but filled with bitterness. Not bad, but I still like the darker stuff.

Body is a foggy brown, with a bubbly thin head. Honey, dried fruits, alcohol, grapes, wheat aroma. Taste is cinnamon, nutmeg, apples, apricots, wheat. Pretty easy drinking for a 8.7% beer.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2005 Not cloying in its sweetness as the other few weizen bocks I have tried. The head is large, tan colored and long lasting. Lots of bubbles in the body. The body is amber and slightly cloudy. The aroma is brown sugar, nuts with cherries, bananas and a cinnamon spice. This goes down with a thick mouthfeel. I am going to age a few. This si scary drinkable. Best by March 1, 2005.

bottle thanks to the_beer_god. pours deep amber. thin head, but lots of carbonation. thick sticky wheaty aroma, with some cloves and yeast and banana. despite the german-ness of the brew, it tastes rather belgian and spicy; acidic and bitter, which fit the style very appropriately. interesting to say the least!

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2005 This beer had a much lighter pour then I was expecting. It was an orange color instead of a brown color. The head was practically non-exisistent. Very interesting appearance. The smell was very peppery and spicy. There was citrus, orange, and caramel in the taste. The problems were that it was too sweet and too peppery. The alcohol is also a bit noticable. Still once again Victory has produced a very good beer. This is not there best beer in my opinion, but I am still impressed. The palate has a nice spicyness to it which works quite well.
