Moa Breakfast Beer is a blend of premium wheat malt, floral Nelson hops and cherries. A very refreshing and fruity lager specifically designed as a European-style breakfast beer but more commonly enjoyed as a mid-afternoon beverage here in New Zealand. Although not always.

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.
