Moonglow Weizen Bock
Tonight I'm drinking Moonglow Weizen Bock brewed by Victory Brewing Company in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. This is their fall seasonal and an unfiltered wheat beer. "Moonglow shines with its own magical yeast strain intact, and exudes a radiance all its own!" Enjoy by SEP 24 2011.
Mmm. I like the aroma. Lots of bananas on top of pears and wheat. Spicy start and again with the bananas, nice and ripe. Cherries, too, I think. And just a hint of lemon. The wheat adds to the flavors and textures as well. A sugary component is also among the stand-out flavors in this beer.
Now I don't know how much alcohol is in this dude, but I was caught a little off guard. IT IS IN THERE! Of course I can go look around and find out. So demanding. Hold on! OK, the Victory site says approximately 8.7%. See, I told you so! Warmth, even a little burn, and nice play with the fruity flavors. Great carbonation. You finish with a spicy alcohol warmth. Pretty good beer.
Five. Minutes. Later. I have been sitting here for like 5 minutes trying to figure out one word to describe Moonglow. That's when I read the little bottle story again. Poof, they had the word there. This beer is an elixir! Personally, I could have done with more masking of the alcohol, but this is one you should grab. One other thing. With all the awesome Philadelphia sports victories going on, Victory better ramp up their volume! LOL. See you in the World Series!

Words are readable but don't bother telling me they are blurry. I already know. Dark before 5pm today. And I don't live in Alaska.
