COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 4C in a pilsner glass.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Draft at Churchkey. Clear light gold. Nose holds pure corn starch and red Twizzlers. Flavor might actually be worse, with bits of sweet vanilla working in with the disgusting mareschino sweetness. Really just awful, I dont know how this beer is getting good reviews; this was from a fresh key keg. Maybe just a weird batch or something strange happened in transport? Alas.

mansquito (5849) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Whole Foods, Bowery 375ml ($7): Pours a peach color with a white head. Aroma is cherry, hops, and some other fruit flavors. Taste is slightly sweet at the front and then gets more bitter towards the finish, with a sort of dry feel towards the back. Fruitiness is way lower than I expected at the outset. Aftertaste is, however, very cherry. Pretty good beer. Would be a nice session. Alas, too expensive.

This is my third Moa beer, and I havent been that impressed. But this one is new (newer) and I had to try it. The beer pours a light orange and has a lovely aroma. The flavor is... well, WOW. It is loaded with orange zest and leave the mouth with a pillow of flavor. VERY well done and my favorite Moa beer so far.

NikkTwist (2947) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Draft at Eulogy. Yellow amber with a large marshmallow white head. Medicinal strawberry off the nose. Floral cherry on the tongue. Juicier than most flavored lagers/wheat beers but still feels way too light. Good enough for breakfast I suppose but otherwise like a soda pop.

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 with striking white head. A good looking beer with a champagne-like character. Not overly bitter, slightly sour and light in a good way.
