COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moa Breakfast is a European style beer brewed with a blend of premium wheat malt and a variety of floral hops. A very refreshing lager with an abundance of cherry character and aromas, Moa Breakfast is more commonly enjoyed as a mid-afternoon beverage here 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 4°C in a pilsner glass.

Name initially attracted me to this beer. Would it be a gimmick? No! The cherry aromas give way to a floral tasting wheat beer, matched mine with eggs bene for breakfast. Creamy mouth feel. Best enjoyed in an open balloon glass ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2012 Massive cherry nose but drinks much differently to the nose, sweet at the front of the palate but with a smooth beer finish a really unique brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: cherries. It really isn’t subtle here! Appearance: beautiful golden yellow. Head collapses to a thin lacing. Taste: stunning. Very rich and fruity, but not sweet. No strong after taste - it drops its flavour and goes, leaving just a faint hint of cherry fruitiness at the back of the mouth. Very quaffable!

1/26/12. 12.7oz bottle. Clear golden at first, but adding the yeast makes it a bit cloudy, with a nice off-white head that sticks. Somewhat weird aroma of cherry, citrus, and vanilla... reminds of Sam Adams Cherry Wheat. Sweet, tangy flavor of lemon peel with cherry, borderline funky yeast, almost Belgian in character, with yeast and nuttiness. Weird.

PorterPounder (5713) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - cage corked 12.7 oz bottle. Pours a champagne-like slightly murky light golden with nice bubble action and a soft snow white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with some cherry notes, and a hint of bubble gum. Flavor has a slight sour undertone with some cherry kriek notes, some bubble gum artificial sweetness, a touch of yeastiness. Spritzy mouthfeel. Odd, but not horrible.

fluffy (1802) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2012
looks and smells like a cider/champagne hybrid. aroma is quite floral, almost like perfume. flavor is effervescent with sour berries and green apples. somewhat yeasty though i fail to see how this is a wheat beer honestly. interesting.

Jimthechap (1792) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 12, 2012
Yellow-gold colour with a good fluffy white head. An immediate perfumy rush of scent from the glass pervades: floral and enticing. Aromas of cherries and flowers, but through that there’s a slight funky aroma. Also a touch of bubblegum? Very cool and then a twist of sour cherry. Good mouthfeel and lip smacking. I was expecting the cherries to bring sweetness, but am happy with the sour twist. A lovely tart finish and a perfectly charming beer.

Brodies_Best (260) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 7, 2012
Nice champagne-like bottling. Fresh apple cider aroma pours golden and slightly cloudy with frothy white head. Loads of bubbles. Wheaty full flavoured beer with slight floral bitter finish. Fruity aftertaste.

hawthorne00 (2554) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma of cherries, almonds, an odd mustiness. Taste of cherries, vanilla, medicinal fly spray. Not my sort of thing at all.

Very sweet and delicate and light. Hints of banana and summer fruits and possibly some bubblegum. I enjoyed it immensely, although I probably wouldn’t have it with breakfast.
