The Victorious Weizenbock – The Moon Under Water Pub & Brewery

The Moon Under Water Pub & Brewery out of Victoria have 4 standard beer in their lineup.  One of these 4 beer is the “The Victorious Weizenbock” a strong, dark wheat beer.  While most Bock beer are lagers a Weizen Bock is always an Ale.  The Weizen Bock pours a deep reddish brown colour with a tan head.  The aroma consists of sweet fruits such as apricots, bananas and prunes with a wheat base.  The flavour was of dark fruits such as prunes with bananas and apricots as well as caramel, nuts and possibly a hint of sour.  The alcohol content of this brew is a strong 8.2%.  This is a very tasty beer but this style of beer will be quite different for many people.

Commercial Description:  “Vic-to-ri-ous: envincing moral harmony or a sense of fulfillment.  Our pride and joy.  Canadian wheat, German Munich and a little chocolate malt combine into on open-fermented party.  Fruity New Zealand hops compliment the melanoidins, spicy clove-like phenols and banana esters.  Rouse the yeast before serving or risk offending the brewing Gods.”

  1. Alright! I was hoping you’d like this one. It took me awhile to get a fair sampling of it and I really enjoyed it. Have you seen their limited release Maibock yet?
