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.

DocJitsu (1921) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Pours a straw-golden color with a well-retaining white head. Gimmicky, fake cherry aroma dominates. Thin mouthfeel with some astringency. Cherry flavor is less obtrusive than the nose. Drinks pretty nicely, actually.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
12.7 fl oz bottle from Potsdam NY, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear light golden with a white rim. Aroma: Hugely fruity, lots of bubble gum, tropical fruits, oddly medicinal cherry, booze?, odd. Palate: Medium-ish body, moderate to low carbonation. Flav.: More cherry than anything else, oddly dusty/peppery, bubble gum, synthetic rubber?, light tropical fruits, still quite odd; dry with decent bitterness and a very fruity, cherry finish.

I dont get this one. Breakfast? Cough syrup and bubble gum for breakfast?

Bottle pour. Very clear golden color with little head. Great fruity aroma with cherries and bananas. Silky on the palate. Initial fruit taste, but progresses to a slight bitter taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2014
An excellent beer that would be perfect for a breakfast champagne! Very citrusy and fruity aroma and flavor. Good crisp taste and finish. Nice carbonation but lacking a head. Sweet bananas and mango flavors. Very nice brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

edsspoon (892) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2014
Pours golden with a bubbly white head that quickly fades to a ring. Got a bit of sediment in the glass which made it cloudy. Aroma of cherry, banana, yeast and pine. Taste is hops, some cereal, cherry, mild bitterness and lots of sweetness, some hints of herbs also. Its pretty pleasant but also quite a strange beer.
