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.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle. Drank on air during the Bottoms up Dallas radio show - the cork nearly took someones eye out upon opening. Golden amber pour with some fluffy head. Nose is bready malt, cherry, wheat. Flavor is fruity and light- would actually work well for breakfast/brunch. Sweet grains, nutty, slightly tart.

Bottle pour at Moa. Lots of sweet synthetic cherry, some tart citrus character, a sweet brioche background. Interesting, pretty tasty, nice full body. Very impressed.

hopdog (12113) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Corked bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an averaged sized head. This one was weird. Was getting fruity pebbles and just couldnt get past that. Artificial sugary fruity pebbles.

toscanoigor (223) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - NOV 29, 2016
Cerveja dourada, clara, com muita espuma e frisante. Aroma predominantemente frutado, principalmente cerejas (nem tanto a fruta fresca, aquele cheiro artificial tpico de remdios com sabor) mas um leve final de banana e fermento, com notas florais. O sabor leve, frutado, e bem menos artificial. Cerejas, banana e um toque de melo se complementam bem. Destaque tambm para o malte. Final persistente de frutas e um toque de lpulo terroso. Corpo leve, intensa carbonatao. uma cerveja interessante e complexa, mas um pouco enjoativa. Vale a pena ser harmonizada (doces com ma, limo, frutas vermelhas, chocolate branco ou saladas e frutos do mar)

wombat23 (1229) - 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, its fine for a day at the beach and I wouldnt turn it down if it was offered.

darbeer75 (826) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2016
Aroma: extremely sweet cherry candy nose; unlike any beer Ive 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 its retired.

obguthr (6180) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2016
Cherry candy nose, lemon zest. Clear amber, thin head. Cherry, banana, bubble gum, dry. Full body, soft carbonation. Nice, but kind of artificial.

vidmidia (286) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - JAN 4, 2016
Amarela, ligeiramente turva. Espuma rala de mdia durao. Forte aroma de chiclete de cereja. Sabor adocicado equilibrado de cereja, levemente cido, com notas de banana e melo. Retrogosto cido.

on tap at Eulogy in Philadelphia; a wheat beer with cherries; amber color; smells like cherry cough medicine - tastes pretty much the same; very medicinal flavor; very light malt; I culdnt finish it

JohnnyJ (5539) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 21, 2015
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.
