A little gem sampled in Colorado I believe. Red licorice aroma. Flavour is light but the aroma is amazing!!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Moa Breakfast is a medium hazy light golden liquid with a full head of tiny white bubbles and active carbonation. Nose is crisp and has elements of citrus and stone fruit. There is also an element of earthy funkiness which is different for sure. Taste is light and crisp faint hints of apricots and wheat. Mild hops. Body is fluid but fizzy. Finishes with a lingering hint of earth and malt. A very light, crisp and clean fruit beer.

During a night of drinking, we stopped in Nathaniels and I took a chance on this without knowing the style, but the bottle looked nice. Yuck, a fruit beer. Poured a hazy straw body. Aroma is moderately sweet, cherry, light cereal, grape. Taste is moderately sweet, cherry, light grape, cereal. I guess might have been better received on a hot day of lawn cutting.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from colonial spirits.
Holy shit that smells like fruit loops.
Pours a mostly clear medium golden color with a huge fluffy white head that persists forever. Very fruity aroma, cherry, raspberry, banana, powdered sugar, with hints of clove and a light yeasty phenol. The flavor is sweet and fruity less like fruit loops but more like skittles. Sweet sugar mixed with strawberry, raspberry, cherry and banana. Lingering sweet fruity sugary flavor long after every sip. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a sweet slick bubbly mouthfeel. This is certainly different, but I really enjoyed it. The flavors are kind of artificial but they don’t hit you over the head or cloy. I could drink this again, and given the price I might just do that. About half what that other New Zealand brewery that distributes here charges and in a much cooler bottle.

A big bubblegum smell and taste. A little peppery in the back taste. Very clean. Really different. A strange beer for sure. Thanks Mike.

The head is medium. It smells medicine, strange, a bit sour, malty. The taste is bit dry, fruity, medicine. Overall not so good

Poured from bottle at northside cafe. They had this listed under stout in accident or I wouldn't have ordered this fruity pile of hell. It actually wasn't bad. Could see why the call it a breakfast beer - light and fruity.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Mike! Bright, burnt gold body with a foamy, fizzy white head... Looks like a gueuze. Aroma is cherry bubblegum. Seriously... Cherry flavored Double Bubble. Sweet cherry, wheat, faint yeast. Medicinal. Taste isn’t as sweet as aroma indicates. Dry bubblegum yeast, dry cherry flavors, hefty wheat finish. Aftertaste is blunted quick without much finish. Mild floral hop notes. Different, strange... pretty crappy overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours a clear straw yellow with a decent white head, quite high carbonation, which is explained by the lager base beer I guess. Aromas of cherries and almond. Very strong considering no colour has come through from the fruit to the beer (unless they were yellow cherries...? who knows...). Taste has a light sweetness and something like sherbet. Palate gets a bit cloying towards the end, and the finish builds up some astringency. Otherwise quite a nice beer.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. The first thing that hits me is that this is massively fruity in the smell, with a lot of cherries coming off it (which I happen to detest). Taste is pretty heavily cherry laden as well, with just a hint of nuttiness coming through underneath. Not a fan of this one.
