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.

An excellent beer that would be perfect for a breakfast champagne! Very citrusy and fruity aroma and flavor. Good crisp taste and finish. Nice carbonation but lacking a head. Sweet bananas and mango flavors. Very nice brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

edsspoon (302) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2014
Pours golden with a bubbly white head that quickly fades to a ring. Got a bit of sediment in the glass which made it cloudy. Aroma of cherry, banana, yeast and pine. Taste is hops, some cereal, cherry, mild bitterness and lots of sweetness, some hints of herbs also. Itís pretty pleasant but also quite a strange beer.

Pale gold. Fruity aroma with champagne like palate. Firewood, banana, slight smoke. Sticky mouthfeel that lasts on the tongue. Big fruit is the theme of this brew leaning well towards the sweet side. Very low hop bitterness gives it a slight dry finish that has a Chipotle like peppery taste.

Dogbrick (7575) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Sample at Falling Rock. Hazy straw color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of malt, fruit and wheat in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of fruity wheat, grainy malt and vanilla. The finish is malty up front with an off fruit aftertaste. Below average overall.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dirty golden amber with a thin head cover, light streaks of lace. Aroma reminds me of a kolsch, or maybe a European pilsner. Taste begins with wheat and citrus and bubble gum, which gives way to earthy bitterness and carbonation. The finish plays like a simple Belgian Ale. A really odd combination, but it is refreshing as a spring afternoon brew. If this is a fruit beer, I need to taste something fruity.

Poured at tasting. A yellow with some head and some lace. Aroma was..... I really donít know what to say here. This was the oddest aroma, maybe some grass. Taste was just as odd, I did not pick up anything I could I could say it was. Some one else said it was like drinking an air freshner and I think thatís pretty close. Not offensive just weird.

Very fruity, blueberry, pomegranate. Light, yellow color, small white head. Taste is pasty fruit. Hay. Not bad for breakfast or early in the day, but any more would be painful.

>> Thanks DTF for the share. Pours a full haze straw, great foam. Soapy lacing. Nose is intense fruit punch, popsicle, juice box. Taste is very chemical, essentially eating an air freshener refill pouch. Palate is soapy, Iím sure there is a normal beer below all the adjunct chemical, but it is lost. I highly doubt this was the intended flavor.

<!> extreme chemical

Pours pale and clear. Small white top, not very thick. Aroma is bubblegum and candy, mixed with some sour cherry lemonade. More sweet candy in that mixture. Taste is actually not as sweet as the aroma hints. There is still some bubblegum and sour cherry lemonade - but also some hop bitterness. It does not feel very balanced though, aftertaste is somewhat rough and feels pretty short. Not really my cup of tea - but I guess there is a place for this kind of beer also. Is it refreshing - for sure.
