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 itís 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.

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.

Pdubyah (417) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 14, 2014
*750ml bottle* I donít know why but this drinks more like a Pislner than a Wheat beer, and itís not until you get to the bit where the sediment clouds up the beer that it looks like a wheat beer might, and I did try, Iíve had experience . Anyway it looks great, fantastic head, and the palate is all soft and low key without any hints of lemons or citrus notes. I though the hops were forward (Again more like a Pils) but I did enjoy it and I do have more to drink.

Dervock (503) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle - slightly hazy pale yellow with a big white head. There are hints of the banana but the malt dominates with some musty veg. Taste is more like it than the aroma, hints of banana and spice. Nice balanced dryness across the taste and just a nice level of soft carbonation.

yngwie (14010) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. A more or less clear one, golden in color and with a small, white head. The aroma has some notes of hay, grass and pale wort, with a faint rubbery touch. Metal notes in the flavor, with a generic fruityness, hay, grass and some bitterness. Medium to thin body, plesant carbonation. Short fruity finish. Not much of a wheat beer this one, but itís drinkable. 140418
