Based on a German Kristallweizen style beer, but in a nod to its origins, Moa Blanc is brewed using renowned Sauvignon Blanc wine yeast. A blend of 50% wheat malt and 50% barley malt results in an elegantly smooth beer with hints of spice and uplifting esters.

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.

330ml bottle. Filmy golden colour with small, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, white head. Slightly floral aroma, some lemon, a spicy touch. Taste is initially slightly muggy grainy, later dry, spicy with a soapy touch, cautious unspecific hints of fruit.

my introduction to wheat beers hasn’t been all that flash, though this and the napa smith probably aren’t the first places to look for quality. that unpleasant flavour that i now associate with wheat is present, as well as a thin body and a bit of yeast. not my thing.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2013
Aroma: Quite a weak aroma, not very strong or distinct, slight banana & citrus. Appearance: Very large frothy white head, quite dispersed. Cloudy liquid with a classic hazy golden appearance. Taste: Medium sourness and slight bitterness, no hints of sweetness with heavy citrus flavours. Palate: Light body, thin feel, soft carbonation, with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Overall: Pours with a very large foamy head, low aroma and an overly citrus flavour. An average Belgian White at best.

Very hazy gold beer, good white head. Mild creamy malt nose, grainy. Smooth palate with prickly carbonation. Minerals. Mildly lagerish malt, sweeter than that though. Mild lemon citrus. Minerally dry finish. Okay but a bit dry.

airrick2003 (603) - 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
