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.

Pours gold w slight haze. A little fizzy w unsustained head. Aroma is sweet like apple juice. Flavor is sugar sweet bubble gum with cereal and slight citrus background. Thin and light. Enjoyable for what it's trying to be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reimer96 (1576) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
Pours a hazy reddish pink with a small white ring. Aroma of tart cherries, sweet fruit and that’s all but in a nice bouquet balance. Taste is much of the same with a light amount of cherry and tartness in the profile balanced with malt profile... Great beer for making beer cocktails with.

Dark yellow, white lacing foam head. Promising fresh fruity aroma, however no fruit flavors present in taste. Very wheat dominated, pitty. (Houston 201501)

Corked bottle from Kenny Rd Market. Gold pour with thin bright white head and visible carbonation. Aroma of strong berry bubblegum. Tastes are black cherry, artificial sweetness, wheat/grain, light banana. Bit of a cough syrup vibe here. Highly carbonated. Not for me.
