Moonglow Weizenbock pours a copper color w/ orange highlights. Very murky in appearance. The one finger cocoa head quickly disappears down to a sliver. Lacing is good. The nose I get is mainly clove, banana, apple, malt, bread. Very nicely blended into a good cold weather brew. Ah... The taste takes it up a notch. Everything in the nose is here- and it's blended very well. It's close to a 4.5, but I'll leave it at a 4 for now. The flavors really come alive in this beer- and the spices are very well done. Feel is medium-full, w/ some big time carbonation on the back end, and aftertaste. Big spices on the aftertaste as well. The only complaint I have is there isn't more presence from the malt. Overall, a solid brew from Victory.

Pours a hazy amber color with nice head and pretty good lacing. Nice collar forms as the head recedes.

Smells like spice, fruits, alcohol, and herbs. Like a fruitcake or potpourri.

Taste opens with the fruits and an earthy tone, moving into the spiced and fruit flavors. Finishes with the spice and a bit of lingering sweetness. Not cloying, but it definitely lingers a bit.

Mouthfeel is flat feeling and a little thin. Not what I expected.

Overall, its pretty good, nothing great.

Appearance is a cloudy dark amber with a tan head. Had to be patient with the pour and wait for the beautiful dense head to fade a bit. Not much lacing left behind. Scents are mainly fruity - orange peel and lemon - with a little wheat as well. The smell could use a little more oomph though. There's a lot going on in the taste - it combines the flavors of a wit with a hefeweizen - and boy is it good! Banana and bread give a bubble gum-like sweetness, and a twinge of lemon gives a perfect amount of tartness. Mouthfeel is full-bodied, though carbonation is high. This is one of the best wheat beers I've had. Victory has a winner.

A - Pours a hazy, light brown color. Head quickly dissipates with spotty lace.

S - Very fruity (bananas), with smells of cloves, spices and yeast. Notes of wheat and malt as well.

T - A bready and fruity taste that blends nicely with the wheat and malts. Yeasty as well. Not overly sweet, very delightful and extremely well balanced.

M - Medium bodied, rather smooth tasting with a nice finish. Hides the alcohol very well.

O - I found the Moonglow Weizenbock to be an amazingly tasty brew. Victory makes some excellent beers and this is no exception. Refreshing and delicious!
