COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moa Blanc Evolution is bottle fermented in the Belgian-style with a small amount of coriander added during its extended maturation time giving it a unique spiciness. Described as a rich, mouth-filling beer, it’s really a true wheat lover’s beer and a staple of the Moa Reserve range.

Tasting Notes
Moa Blanc Evolution has a slight fruity aroma and a crisp, refreshing finish. Stone fruit and hazelnut flavours compliment the distinctive dominant spicy and phenolic characters. With a subtle hop aroma and bitterness, Moa Blanc Evolution is well paired with lightly aged cheeses, smoked and savoury meals, or on its own for a satisfying pint. Moa Blanc Evolution is best served at approximately 4˚C in a pilsner glass.

Thanks to Sylvia for this. Pretty good witbier. The yeast seemed a bit more like a standard Belgian than a wit. Crisp and a little spicy. Serving: Bottle

Pdubyah (403) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 18, 2014
Over excitable and the cork flew over the room and the resulting beer over the keyboard, table, cat and me. Softer and more muted than the Blanc, has a lot going on in the middle, and the finish lingers towards a dryness. Not convinced that this is better, but it is different than the standard.

The bottle looks really nice. Alot of head with big bubbles. Slightly sour smell maybe a little bit yeasty smell. At first you can feel the orange and coriander. Really refreshing. Reminds me of sparkling vines.

Little head, but very lively carbonated on the palate - almost too carbonated. Typical wheat characters on the palate, and quite soft texture,

sulawang (627) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
Visual: Composite corked. Pours almost clear pale orange with virtually no head but lots of very hard to see steady streams. Nose: wheaty citrus malts, pineapple, peach. (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: crisp sweet malts Mid-palate: tangy, medium sour, (lvl-4)-sweetness, (main) wheat malts, hints of pineapple, hints of peach Finish: coriander dryness, dry fruity malt finsh. Summary: Pretty straightforward with a good body and texture. It could be better visually.

Lagerboy (1256) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
375 ml corked and caged green bottle, best before date stamped on the neck is 22.3.13, buyer beware. Unclear orange yellow, lasting snow white fine foam. Aroma is skunky, citrus and wit spice. Taste is quite tart, verging on sour, mostly citric, not much else... this one has gone off, too bad. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

pintbypint (2646) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
375ml green bottle, corked. Pours a light lemony yellow, hazy. Large white cap, lots of lacing. Nose has wheat, orange, spice. Taste has wheat, coridander, light hoppy finish. Some yeast, hop and spice notes lingering. Medium bodied, tight carbonation. Pretty good, seems to have a bit more going for it than your average wit. Enjoyable.

TheBear11D (256) - Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2014
The Blanc Revolution pours a mostly hazy crisp golden yellow with a thin bubbly beige head that is easily agitated. The aroma is fruit and coriander with bread. The flavor is light fruit, coriander, and a touch of honey and bread. Overall this is a very solid beer.

gripweed57 (728) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 4, 2014
375 ml corked and crowned bottle. Pours a pale yellow gold color with a million tiny bubbles building to a massive rocky white head that dissipates somewhat slowly. Yeasty wheat malt aroma with notes of chalk, lemon peel and coriander. Tart citrus wheat flavor reminiscent of dry white wine. Spicy malt mid taste has notes of white pepper and coriander. Finishes dry and tart with notes of grassy hops.

dmac (4080) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle from Xroads. Poured a hazy light yellow with a larger foamy white head. Aroma is odd. Sort of a fruity wit with lots of white grape juice, wheat, wet toast, apricots, light spice and some corriander. Body is medium with lively carbonation that dies down and an average to quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor of white grspe juice, champagne, sweet sugary fruit, light toast. Meh not impressed for the big $$ tag.
