Moa Special Reserve Program


 

THE MOA SPECIAL RESERVE PROGRAM

The Moa Special Reserve Program showcases Head Brewer David Nicholls’ renowned creativity and diverse range of skills.  New recipes are trialed, ancient recipes from plague times are resurrected, wild yeasts are experimented with, and techniques such as barrel fermenting and ageing are used.

All beers are brewed using the finest natural ingredients with taste and the drinker’s experience the sole focus. In short, this is a brewer led program. No short cuts, no hidden agendas - just good beer.

All our Special Reserve beers are limited edition small-run, single batch (1,200L) brewed beers. Some brews are available only on draught, some only in the bottle, and occasionally some in both.

MOA N.Z. GOLD ALE - Beer for N.Z. OLYMPIANS

Style: Golden Ale
ABV: 5.4%
Serving Glass: Tulip Glass
Bottle Size: 375ml

Bottles from Countdown
And available on draught at selected craft beer bars in New Zealand.

Just in time for Rio. Unlike Rio.

We’re obviously pretty bloody thrilled to be a supporter of the New Zealand Olympic team, and seeing as we’re a brewery, we thought we should probably make a beer you could watch The Games and eat hot chips with. So we did and it’s a Golden Ale and it looks like this.  

But we didn’t make a whole lot so it’s only available for a short time at Countdown and selected bars. Unless no one buys it, in which case it will be around for a while. Go New Zealand! 

This golden colour ale is brewed predominantly with Pilsner malts, Vienna and a touch of Wheat, giving a mild malt sweetness. Both late hopped and dry hopped with NZ Motueka to provides an upfront passionfruit and pineapple characters that give way to some pine and lemonade-type citrus flavours. This beer has a lingering clean after-bitterness with a dry finish, best enjoyed when celebrating a New Zealand Gold!

MOA TRIPEL SAVVY
2016 VINTAGE

Style: Grape-infused Belgian Tripel
ABV: 9.3%
Serving Glass: Tulip Glass
Bottle Size: 375ml

An experimental Belgian style Tripel where the candi sugar adjunct was replaced with unfermented Sauvignon Blanc grape juice from the 2016 Marlborough harvest. This year sees a greater addition of Sauvignon Blanc juice for a more in your face fusion. A quintessential Tripel invoking banana and spice derived characters, complemented by the vinous yet fruity and tropical notes.

MOA GEWÜRZ I.P.A.
2016 VINTAGE

Style: Grape-infused Belgian I.P.A.
ABV: 6.6%
Serving Glass: Tulip Glass
Bottle Size: 500ml

A Belgian IPA playing on the spice of the Belgian Ale yeast and the natural sweetness of the Gewürztraminer grapes. Locally harvested (2016 Vintage) Gewürztraminer grape juice has been added in the fermentation process. The addition of USA hops, Simcoe, Amarillo and a touch of Citra, accentuate the spice characters of this grape infused brew. The result is a spicy IPA, with hints of lychee and rose aromas, giving a warming finish.

Moa Hoppy Cologne


Moa Hoppy Cologne (Kölsch-style Ale)

Pale straw colour in appearance with a nice lingering head, this German style ale is brewed with predominantly Pilsner malts with a touch of Vienna and Wheat, providing a mild malt sweetness.

 

Fermented using a traditional Kölsch yeast at relatively warm temperatures, the objective has been to produce a summer ale with good drinkability.

 

It deviates from style in bitterness (45 IBU) and hop character, having been both late hopped and dry hopped with NZ Motueka and Australian Vic Secret.

 

Up-front it has passionfruit and pineapple fruit characters that give way to some pine and lemonade-type citrus flavours.  A mild white wine character with some slight spiciness, this beer has a lingering clean after-bitterness with a dry finish.
