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.

This beer is one of a kind. The nose is cherry kool-aid but the beer is dry and crisp. The cherry is only experienced in the nose. Very light straw color with striking white head. A good looking beer with a champagne-like character. Not overly bitter, slightly sour and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wombat23 (765) - Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2016
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle. Pours a clear straw with a white head. Medium to high carbonation. Nose is black cherry soda with licorice notes. Taste is not as sweet as the nose would indicate. Cherry, faint apple, and wheat. A medicinal finish not unlike watered-down cough syrup. Refreshing. Overall, it’s fine for a day at the beach and I wouldn’t turn it down if it was offered.

darbeer75 (559) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2016
Aroma: extremely sweet cherry candy nose; unlike any beer I’ve had; Appearance: pale straw with thin white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: not nearly as sweet as aroma, but kind of like a hybrid between 7 Up and beer. Pretty refreshing. Palate: light bodied with medium cherry sweet finish; Overall: definitely different but would buy again for a hot summer day. Too bad it’s retired.

Cherry candy nose, lemon zest. Clear amber, thin head. Cherry, banana, bubble gum, dry. Full body, soft carbonation. Nice, but kind of artificial.

Amarela, ligeiramente turva. Espuma rala de média duração. Forte aroma de chiclete de cereja. Sabor adocicado equilibrado de cereja, levemente ácido, com notas de banana e melão. Retrogosto ácido.

Bottle. Clear golden pour, with a white head. Sweet and fruity, but still clean and drinkable. Pineapple, cherry, cantaloupe, light wheat grain, and slightly tart. Medium spritzy light body. Decent.
