Moa Sour Grapes 2014 Vintage

MOA SOUR GRAPES
2014 Vintage

Style: Belgian Fruit Lambic
ABV: 6.9%
Bottle Size: 375ml
Serving glass: Tulip

Moa Sour Grapes is a refreshing and uniquely unusual Belgian-style fruit lambic. A wheat beer base was fermented and conditioned with our house sour microflora. Generous amounts of whole bunch Sauvignon Blanc grapes were hand harvested from the Head Brewer’s Vineyard, and then left in contact with the wort during the main ferment and again in barrel for conditioning. Typical sour characters are evident in addition to the herbaceous vine like characters from the grapes.

Released: September 2015

Moa Rum Barrel Sour 2014 Vintage

MOA RUM BARREL SOUR
2014 VINTAGE

Style: Sour Belgian Brown Ale
ABV: 9.0%
Bottle Size: 375ml
Serving glass: Tulip

Moa Rum Barrel Sour (2014 Vintage) is a rum barrel aged sour, loosely based on a Flanders Red Ale. The rich malt base has integrated with the vineous, slightly toasted oak flavours after 12 months conditioning in barrel, and is balanced by a mild Umami/savoury sourness, adding to the complexity of this beer. Sherry like with a strong raisin character, this slightly tart beer finishes with a warming mouthfeel.

MOA CHERRY SOUR
2013 VINTAGE

Style: Cherry Lambic
ABV: 5.9%
Bottle Size: 375ml
Serving glass: Tulip

Moa Cherry Sour 2013 Vintage is a barrel fermented and aged cherry sour beer. Brewed with a wheat beer base and whole Marlborough cherries harvested in December 2013, with 12 months in a combination of tank and barrel on both the skins and stones, cherry flavours are very upfront. Farmyard characters are evident from the Brettanomyces yeast and it is tart rather than over acidic. A food friendly beer well matched with Brie or aged Gouda.

MOA SOUR BLANC
2013 VINTAGE

With a wheat beer base, Moa Sour Blanc 2013 Vintage is a throwback to how the very first beers were produced.  Fermented and aged in a combination of tank and oak barrels using natural wild yeast and selected bacterium, this beer carefully balances phenolic and complex acidity with dryness and funk.  A sour beer in the traditional Belgian Lambic style with a complexity best described as a riot of flavours.
