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 4°C in a pilsner glass.

375ml bottle. Shared by dmac. Thanks bro! Pours a hazy straw color with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of really sweet cherries, wheat, and juicy fruit gum. Taste of tart cherries, sweet citrus, bitter pine, bubble gum, and wheat. Very odd beer.

Its a beer for breakfast! Also my first from Moa. bottle poured pale yellow with light head. Aroma is a cherry with touch of vanilla with a light grain. Taste bring forther some ester and cherry. Pretty dry body. Very different kind of beer. Might like it next to a big bowl of hot oatmeal.

The beer came in a nice 375ml bottle with a cork. I love the idea of a breakfast beer. On popping the cork white smoke drifted out & the smell of cherry & bubblegum hit me. It poured with a good three fingers of white head which took about two minutes to die down to about half a finger. There was light carbonation in a muddy yellow body. The taste was sweet - there were cherry & bubblegum flavours which matched the smell. The finish was long and dry. Not my favourite beer from Moa, but worth trying.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Clear yellow pour with a small, firm white head on top. This beer is weird. Nose showed promise but had a lot of sweetness and tartiness there but you could get past that. Taste was just sugary, fake lollie type notes. An odd fake black cherry tone throughout with some super sweet sherbert. Very sweet and slightly sour cherry doesn’t work together at all. Too weird for me

Tart cherries are the primary aroma. Pours a hazy straw with quickly diminishing white head and no lacing. The taste is delicately sweet. Cherry flavored lip gloss comes to mind. A bit of floral noted in the aftertaste. Light viscosity and crisp carbonation. Overall, this is a very subtle yet refreshing beer. Very delightful. While not something I would want to drink every day, I would definitely drink again.

Slightly sweet, yellow in color, low carbonation. Has a strange taste, somewhat like bubblegum

Poured from the bottle. Color was light gold with a white head. Aroma was a bit strange. Taste was surprisingly refreshing, nice champagne feel, reminded me of brunch. Do not get any real cherries. Overall not to bad.

Bit tangy and hay aroma. No glass available at the moment. HUGE champagne zing at first than a dry grapefruit aftertaste.Complex. Great.

Bad retention, but good lacing. Smells very wheaty. Tastes like a jammy cherry and wheat. An alright beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I really like this beer. It's pretty light yet has more of a complex character then you would expect. Easily one of my favorite beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
