Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Victory Donnybrook Stout nonick.

a: Nearly clear dark amber with an inch and a half offwhite head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense patchy lacing.

s: Mild ripe dark fruit.

t: Fruity Belgian esters, the sum total leaning to ginger at first, more general later. Dry finish.

m: Medium, good body, loads of carbonation tingle.

o: A good representation of the style, Refreshing. If you like hefeweizen, this is a sort of darker version.

A- A cloudy amber, with a 1/2" white head, noticeable bubbles streaming up.

S- Spice, cloves, yeast, light bananas and apple or maybe its pear.

T- Just about mimics the smell, fairly well balanced with nothing overpowering my taste buds, hides the abv pretty well. good beer.

M- light to medium, carbonation prickels the tongue.

O- American Weizenbock says it well, not my normal style but would defiantly get it again, good flavor and not overaly spiced and no funky aftertaste.

12oz brown bottle with an enjoy by date of Aug. 19, 2015

Victory Moon Glow Weizenbock changed the color of my clear Weihenstephan weizen glass to a cloudy amber hue. The fine carbonation bubbles rushed to the top of a 2-finger fluffy and bubbly tan head. The nose is dominated by pleasant smells of fruit and spice - banana, apples, cloves and also an aroma of caramel. The taste follows the nose with stronger flavors of spice/cloves, bananas, and bready flavors of wheat is also noted. Alcohol makes its appearance giving it a warm and spicy finish. Mouth feel is medium bodied with an active carbonation. The Ale is [medium] smooth on the palate with a noted alcohol warming.

Moon Glow is a good American style Weizenbock that is darker and has more malt than its German counterparts. Another stellar brew from Victory!
