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.

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

The aroma won me over with this brew. Lots of cherries and other fruits poured from the bottle. The flavor was light with the fruit and some sweet malt. The finish was light and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12.7 fl oz / 375ml corked and caged bottle into a Samuel Adams glass. Served cold. Aroma: Bright and fruity cherries! A little spice maybe. This smells like good morning smiles. Appearance: Bright and kind of hazy, translucent yellow body with a rocky, very fluffy, very large white head that gradually fizzes away. Very bubbly body. Taste: Aw yeah, sweet and tart cherry. Nice light malty, bready flavor. It tastes like good fresh cherry jam on real bread. Really, really tasty. Palate: Very light body, but not watery at all. Bright. Fizzy. Refreshing. Overall: What a wonderful beer! I feel like I could drink this every morning with breakfast.

Poured from the bottle and tried too wait for breakfast but I’ve been too busy so I busted it out tonight. Instantly noticed the Champaign like head and flavor. Even dryness. The fruit is definitely cherry! Pretty good and I can see how it would be good for breakfast.
