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.

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.

Orange color, and a thick tan head. Sweet citrus scent, and a nice variety of spices in the flavor. An easy drinking beer, without being too thin.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2005 Im enjoying this one. Brown bodied with an off-white head, this baby smells of sweet malts, grassiness, fruity yeasts, and spices. Caramel and mild citric flavors (mainly orange), pomes, and spices come across in the taste leaving you with a warm banana, spices, and alcohol finish. A dangerous brew, since I could easily put these away all night long. The 8.7% abv just hasnt struck me yet.

Bottle. Premier Gourmet in Buffalo. Golden red brown body, fairly clear. Aroma is yeasty, but more of a Belgian like yeastiness than a wheat yeastiness. Sweet malt, touch of caramel, some alcohol as I swirl the glass. Flavour is not what I expected. Lots of sweet malt, some alcohol in the finish with very little wheaty flavours poking through. They start to come out more as it warms, but it is still more bock than weizen. Average medium bodied palate. Nice but unexciting. I had hoped for more.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2005 Opaque brown body, with a frothy white head that disappears fast. Aroma is bananas and apples. Still bananas in the flavor but its followed up with a shot of sweet cherries. Alcohol very present in the finish. Great weizenbock. I had 3 last night while working around the house and started feeling a little numb.

Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Ruddy orange-red body, thin quickly dissipating off-white head. Chewy aroma of banana, clove, tangy wheat, and caramel, slightly sharp. Sweet caramely body, somewhat toasty, with plenty of banana and clove with some development of sweeter fruits (e.g., cherry) from the sugar-charged malts. Surprisingly strong; alcohol is evident at the finish, after which the banana sticks on the palate for awhile. This is a very good Weizenbock, and certainly a sipper rather than a session beer! Thanks Dan (jah noth) for the bottle!

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2005
Big banana and clove aroma. Some citric bite coming through too in the flavours. Very rich, with a sweetish finish. A big wheat like this runs the risk of being a bit blowsy and overblown. However, whilst this is undeniably a big, bold, beer it maintains its balance. A classy brew. Bottled at the Green Leafe Cafe, Williamsburg.
