Beer Tasting: Victory Moonglow Weizenbock

The Beer: Victory Moonglow Weizenbock
Style: Weizenbock
Reviews: Beer Advocate Rate Beer
Packaging & Date Stamping: 12 oz. brown bottle; "Best by 9/15/07"

From where & how stored: Purchased from Exton Beverage; stored in their cooler, then moved to my refrigerator at 42F

Pricing: $35/case of 24

Availability: Fall seasonal

ABV, IBU, and Other Available Stats: 8.7% ABV
Bryan's Notes
The Look:
- one-finger of tight, creamy head with a few bigger bubbles peeping though
- reddish-purplish haze
- unfiltered for sure with yeast specs floating throughout
- dark, slick pour

The Aroma:
- banana
- medicinal band-aid
- candied alcohol aroma like a belgian dubbel or tripel

The Taste:
- pecan pie (nutty and molasses) upfront, citrus wheat in the middle, chased by an ever-so-slight bittersweet-ness in the end
- fades quickly to leave me wanting another taste

The Verdict: A heftier-bodied beer than an average wheat, but nice and smooth. A winner from a solid brewery.
Adam's Notes
The Look:
- cloudy orange brown
- substantial head dissipating to thing layer of foam

The Aroma:
- fruity malt grain nose
- slight spice

The Taste:
- sweet tang
- wheat malt
- apricot
- fresh and clean
- flavor disappears during the finish

The Verdict: This is a very drinkable wheat beer with a wider grain profile. Drink it when its chilly out ;-)
