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 4įC in a pilsner glass.

Bottle. Interesting. Pours a hazy light gold with a high, fine-grained white head. Nose is immensely cherry; I could smell it all the way across the table. There were also vanilla, almond, and toasty notes involved. Nowhere near as sweet as I expected from the nose; dry, round with a nutty, bitter edge. Finish was long, with increased nutty bitterness; drinkable but still substantial. Good.

Hermod (4963) - Vantaa, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle @Olutexpo, Helsinki. Poured hazy dark yellow with a white head. Very fruity aroma, pineapple, orange and light spicy notes. Flavor is the same mix of orange and pineapple juice, some light soury notes in the finish. Easy to drink, light bodied.

wlajwl (4924) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Aroma is cherries/berries, zesty yeast lemons and tropical fruit. The flavor is lemons, cherries, malts, fruit, spritzy texture and tart/tangy finish.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Serving: Draft. It pours a hazy, light amber color with a small white head. Odd nose that is very fruity. The flavor is sweet with notes of grain and fruit that I canít quite place. Like some sort of cherry strawberry mix. Light body. While itís not offensive, itís not my mug of beer.

Unclear yellowgolden in color with a small whitish head. Bit of hay, some pineapple in aroma. Quite fruity indeed. Taste has got same strong notes of pineapple. Would suite well as a morning juice perhaps, atleast considering the overwhelming notes of pineapple thatís present in this one.í

0,15l on tap @ OlutExpo 2013. Pours hazy golden with a medium head. Aroma is some malts with loads of cherries. Flavor is malts and artificial cherries. Not bad, just not my cup of tea.

Pdubyah (553) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 12, 2013
Not for me. This has a fine aroma of fruit or flowers, that moves to a sherbet. Then you get a mouthful of something that is chemical concoction between bubble gum and something sour. very short palate, no length of cary, very thin. It looks great in the glass, and the packaging is superb. However looks and appearance donít match and this fails the crucial taste test.

Light haze on this gold beer, tiny white head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Smooth and semi dry pale malt. Mild minerals. Touches of sweet apple and bubblegum ester. Semi dry finish. Itís all quite acetic and estery but oddly, quite drinkable!
