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.

airrick2003 (538) - Louisiana, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Appearance: thick pale white head, cloudy golden in color Aroma: cherry, I'm picking up some warm bud light smell to it every now and then that I'm having trouble putting a name on, faint smelling, alcohol Taste: cherry, hint of bitterness Palate: leaves a lingering slightly bitter aftertaste Overall: pretty disappointed with this, doesn't really taste like I thought it would, some sort of bad flavor lingering in there, that weird taste kind of went away as it got up to about 45° ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
