Moa Blanc wheat beer is brewed using a blend of 65% wheat malt and 35% barley malt which results in an elegantly smooth beer, with hints of spice and uplifting esters. The slightly cloudy appearance reflects its Germanic origins.
Winner of the Malthouse (Wellington, NZ) West Coast IPA style beer challenge 2011, this beefcake of an imperial pale ale really packs a punch. A hearty addition of NZ hops are chucked in the kettle for some extra dry hopping, producing a well balanced IPA.
“Amber colour with a good collar of white head and evident carbonation. Aromas of stonefruit, caramel, strawberry tart and pastry along with American hops that give it a slightly spruce quality. Good strong bitterness and sweetish malt character, plenty of oily body. Really grabs the tongue like a West Coast IPA. Lengthy finish that brings out more dessert pasty loveliness and fulsome bitterness.”
