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.

Bottled@HBF2013. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is passion fruits, and that’s about it. Flavour is fruits, toffee and overall rather sweet.

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. It’s all quite acetic and estery but oddly, quite drinkable!

333 c&c from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy light gold with a slight, fizzy white head. Nice aroma of mixed floral and cherry. With a little banana in the background. Med body, almost. Flavor is more bitter than not, and the floral/fruit combo is almost like perfume. The fruit is arguably cherry, and there’s no significant sugar present, so it’s perfume, fruit and dry. Finishes like that.

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle shared by Bobby. Hazed yellow pour with a white head. Smells like fruity pebbles, sugar, pear, and apple. Candy-like sweetness, grass, grape, and cherry fruit snacks. The flavor is incredibly sweet. Candied fruit all over the place. Grape, pear, apple, and cherry fruit snacks. Kind of a Jello thing going on.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Draft. Clear yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of straw, grapes, citrus. Taste is berries, licorice candy start, bitter hay finish. I’m not a fan of lager fruit combos.

Ratman197 (9436) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2012
375 ml corked and caged green bottle poured a clear yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, lime, floral notes and orange. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, crackers, lime, lemon zest and some floral hints with a crisp dry lingering lemon lime finish.

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 1, 2013
375ml bottle (HBF2013, Saturday)
Puke-making solventy aroma - pear drops and nail varnish remover. Super-yucky fruity taste - strawberry yoghurt. Fake and fucked up.
