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.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
Pours a hazy reddish pink with a small white ring. Aroma of tart cherries, sweet fruit and thats 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.

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.

superspak (4997) - Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2014
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lightly tart cherry, lemon, white grape, white wine, berries, wheat, cracker, herbal, floral, grass, and herbal/floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright/floral hops, cherry, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lightly tart cherry, lemon, white grape, white wine, berries, wheat, cracker, herbal, floral, grass, and herbal/floral earthiness. Fair amount of earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cherry, lemon, white grape, white wine, berries, wheat, cracker, grass, and herbal/floral earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice balance and complexity of bright/earthy hops, cherry, and pale malt flavors; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly dry mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice fruited lager style. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of bright/earthy hops, cherry, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
