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

Hold your hand over the cork!!! Maybe served a little warm, but rather lively. Clear as a bell, the beer pours a light yellow with frothy head. Hopping is light and classical for this style. There are hints of grass and citrus on the nose, and the palate is rounded and orange-coriander. Perfectly pleasant, but nothing worth the excessive carbon footprint of getting it over from NZ. Could have just as easily gone over to Belgium.

Citrus, grass too much coriander but the right amount of spices here. Poured itself a large head at proper temps. It has the right colour. I probably wouldn’t have it again, but it’s worth a try for anyone at least once.

high_on_hops (549) - Burlingame, California, USA - FEB 16, 2014
On tap. Pours a faint, hazy, straw gold with a foamy white head. The aroma is light, with biscuit and some coriander. The flavor has lots of wheat along with more bread and coriander notes over a light-medium body.

Bottle @ Moa, Blenheim. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma has winey/grape tones, citrus and coriander. Hazy, pale yellow coloured with a white, lasting head. The taste has wine, lemon, coriander. Very refreshing brew. Enjoyed it a lot.

Taster from the Bowery Whole Foods in New York. A little bit too yeasty for my liking.

kiwianer (3315) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 15, 2013
The head is robust, the body blond and cloudy. It smells yeasty, malty, hoppy. The taste is carbonated, yeasty, bit malty. ok

presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle. Foamy on dark amber. Quiet scent. Taste starts off with a twinge of sourness which is forgotten after the first sip. Malty for style with a warm growing spiciness.

Ferris (2006) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle - heat, yeast and a bit of citrus. Clear bubbly gold with a decent white head. Light citrus and a bit of hay. Very underwhelming considering the packaging and description. So light it is almost not there.

Bottle of UNE bičre :P. Pours gold with white head. Nose is coriander, lemon, less spice than typical wit. Flavour is the same with some orange and grape. Finish is mildly tannic. I think all the wheat in this is malted?
