COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moa Blanc wheat beer is brewed using a blend of 65% wheat malt and 35% barley malt which results in an elegantly smooth beer, with hints of spice and uplifting esters. The slightly cloudy appearance reflects its Germanic origins and it’s customary to gently roll the bottle before opening to create an even distribution of the sediment signature.

Tasting Notes
Moa Blanc has a fruity aroma and taste. Banana, vanilla, citrus and bubble gum fruit flavours dominate, with some phenolic characters present. Moa Blanc is a highly drinkable wheat beer, with flavours more moderate than other wheat beers. Hop aroma and bitterness are minimal. Moa Blanc is best served at approximately 4˚C in a pilsner glass.

The aroma is dusty and basement like with wheat and citrus as well as a sour note. The appearance is hazy gold with a large head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall average beer.

Very little colour and has banana and citrus tones. Zesty on the palate but with not much length.

Mjollnir (386) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2012
375mL bottle. Pours clear pale straw with a fluffy white head. Fruity, mildly acidic and earthy aroma, some phenolics and citrus peel. Mild bitterness, low sweetness, a bit of yeast in the flavour. Light body, lively carbonation, a little creamy with a lingering dry finish.

37,5cl bottle from Annam Gourmet Market, Saigon. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Light wheat aroma with yeast and citrus. Light and fruity and quite weak flavourwise. Finish is lighlty yeasty and slightly citric. Light and watery and quite boring, but still refreshing. (2012-05-11)

Bottle. I actually yawned while drinking this. Golden tan color. Very crisp bite, but nothing memorable or special. Nice bottle though

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2012 Appearance: light golden brown. Massive billowy head collapses to a little light lacing. Smell: grassy, fresh smelling. Taste: a hint of Belgian wit beer. Very carbonated, surprisingly so. Overall: a refreshing easy drinking wheat beer that should pair well with fresh cheeses like neufchatel, le roule, or cream cheese.

Bierkrug (2131) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2012
355 ml green bottle. Gold hazy color with a decent white head. Explodes like a volcano when opened. A light spicy, citrus aroma. Almost medium bodied with creamy carbonation. The flavor seems to have a very tart cardamom and light orange peel. A very slight sweetness. Turns a bit bready as the end approaches. The palate is dry and lightly bitter. Floral hop. Not really my thing.

750 bottle-shared by jtclockwork @Small Tasting at my place-pours hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is lemon/grassy, wheat/grain. Taste is grain/light malt, 2nd grassy hops, with some lemon at the finish. Upfront effervescence, crisp, then a quick finish.

750ml bottle. Looked like a good New Zealand bottle of beer to pop the cork on to celebrate the All Blacks winning the rugby world cup. It probably gets a higher overall rating than it deserves because of that. Hazy light golden with large but diminishing fluffy white head. Aromas of wheat banana - very estery, clove, bread dough cobwebs, apple & pear. Light sweet, moderate bitter and sour flavour with long duration. Tingly carbonation, light medium body, texture on the watery side. For a lot less coin I could have had a lot more Hoegaarden, but on this occasion Moa looked a lot more celebratory.
