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.

Dark brandy-colored body. The aroma has the expected big malts - dark wheat bread, prunes, and maybe a little smokiness. The flavor is much "brighter" due to a big citrus taste in the start. The same dark malty elements in the aroma make a second appearance at the end of the flavor. Dry, hoppy finish with cherry sweetness. A little rough around the edges, the dry finish doesnt sit well with the rest of the sweet flavor but otherwise a fine beer.

jasonp (1577) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Pours a dark cloudy amber with a quickly fading head. Aroma is spicy with cloves. Taste has strong notes of caramel, citrus and dark fruits, wheat along with belgian brew spices and yeast. Pretty complex, VERY sweet, not much bitterness. Alcohol content very well hidden. Mouthfeel is full and round. Quality brew, but its not really my thing.

IMtheOptimator (1167) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Poured a very murky light brown with a white head that dissipated completely. Aroma is very spicy with subtle fruit traces. Taste is not as sweet as I expected. The predominant flavor is spice, with some fruit tones and an alcoholic twinge to the finish. Not bad, but not as drinkable as some other weizen bocks Ive had.

chandernagor (39) - Oak Park, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2004
Copper amber color, hazy, with a slightly off-white head. Aroma is full of fruit, a little bit yeasty and spicy as well. Nice sweet and sour flavor, with once again a lot of fruits (banana, orange, apple) and spices (cloves rule). Sour taste turns into tart aftertaste. Pretty nice mouthfeel despite an overall medium-bodied beer.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2004 man does this beer come back on you the next day and make its presence known, shall we say, in an unpleasant olifactory manner. but, the beer itself is nice. lackluster head retention, good banana esters from the yeast, full body, sneaky alcohol strength. good, but the more i drink it, the less i find myself enjoying it. good for a couple pints, then diminishing returns.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Hazy amber with high carbonation but a little diminishing head. Aroma is similar to one of a wheat beer. The flavor is similar to a wheat with some Belgian-type flavor and banana mixed in. Alcohol is noticeable.

SpringsLicker (3501) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 3, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2005 Hazy amber accompanied by a huge head. The aroma was sour and yeasty. The flavor was malty with a very crisp acid bite that wasnt quite right. Maybe this was a bad bottle?? Too much wheat tang sourness and not enough Bock maltiness. Ill have to try this again. Re-rate Current Numbers reflect the re-rate. The first one was a bad bottle. Same appearance as above. Aroma is citrus, yeast and malt, somewhat between a Belgian Golden Ale and a Bock. Sweet, with a bit of tartness at the finish. Much better and glad I tried it again.

Cloudy amber color with asmall off-white head. Banana, clove and malt aroma. Very sweet clove, banana bread and malt flavors. Medium feel with a lightly dry finish.

Cloudy deep orange/brown color with a small beige head. The aroma was full of bananas, clove, yeast/bread, and sugar. The flavor was quite sweet with bananas, cloves, and yeast. The feel was kinda on the thin side for me...acidic/dry finish. Very good weizen Bock. Thanks for the surprise Willblake!
