COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moa Breakfast is a blend of premium wheat malt, floral Nelson hops and cherries. A very refreshing and fruity lager specifically designed as a European-style breakfast beer but more commonly enjoyed as a mid-afternoon beverage in New Zealand. Although not always.

Tasting Notes
Moa Breakfast is a wheat beer based lager with a subtle, sweet cherry aroma and taste. Hints of almond, banana and vanilla characters can also be detected. Low bitterness levels and an absence of strong malt characters emphasise these fruit flavours. Moa Breakfast can either be poured carefully off the lees or alternatively with the lees mixed in if a stronger yeast character is desired. Moa Breakfast is best served at approximately 4įC in a pilsner glass.

Moa Breakfast has a very thick, fluffy, white head, nice, thick lacing on the glass, and a bright, yellow-golden appearance, with champagne-style bubble streams. The aroma and flavor are unusual, but one can smell wheat and strong fruitiness, and the taste is of white wheat bread, underlying cherries, pleasant bitterness, and other things I canít describe. The alcohol does come into play in the back-end of the sip. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Moa Breakfast finishes crisp, clean, flinty, refreshing, sweet, and delicious. I think this is an outstanding flavored beer! RJT

Bottle from Specs. Pale gold with just a touch of haze and a smallish off-white head. Aroma of apple, cherry, and wheat. Taste is light wheat beer with fruit juice. Light bodied, light fizz. Itís ok, but not really. Itís kind of watery beer with phony tasting fruit characteristics.

reebtogi (4180) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
375ml corked bottle pours a golden color with a 2 finger white head that settles down to leave some thin spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is apples with a hint of cherry and yeast and cereal grains. Taste is fruity sweetness with a little bit of grainy malts and very mild hop presence. Light bodied with nice carbonation. A very interesting and unique brew that is recommended for those wanting something a little bit different.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Interesting, but not in a great way. The initial aroma was green apple, followed by cherry Twizzlers. A bit metallic on the finish. Not a beer I would seek out again.

bytemesis (3151) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a medium white head and little lacing. Aroma is wheat, apple, spicy, cinammon. Flavor is very spiced, prominent wheat notes, perhaps a bit of cherry. Lightly sweet, no bitterness. A little too spiced for me, but interesting nonetheless.

Nikiel (877) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle with Carla from Beermongers. Pours a clear yellow/gold with bubbly white foam. Smells of wheaty cherry juice. Tastes very bubbly and sweet with hints of wheat and cherry/pomegranate. More confusing than refreshing.

Smells like red licorice. Pale wheat beer appearance. Itís incredible how strong that cherry licorice aroma is . A bit too wheaty for me.

Ratman197 (9794) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2012
375 ml corked and caged green bottle poured a clear yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, lime, floral notes and orange. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, crackers, lime, lemon zest and some floral hints with a crisp dry lingering lemon lime finish.
