Moa has released three new special beers; a 2015 Vintage Tripel Sauvignon combining Marlborough's grapes and grains and two award-winning 2014 Vintage Sours, namely Moa Sour Grapes and Moa Rum Barrel Sour.
Pale and strong with a fruity character, Moa Tripel Sauvignon is a Belgian-style fusion beer, delivering notes of banana, spice and tropical fruits. Coming in at a 8.7 percent ABV, it replaces the traditional candi sugar adjunct with unfermented Sauvignon Blanc grape juice from the 2015 Malborough harvest.
As for the brand’s newly released sour brews, Moa Sour Grapes is an usual Belgian-style fruit lambic, featuring typical sour characters and herbaceous vine-like characters. Customers aiming for something even more intense would also want to try the new Moa Rum Barrel Sour, a barrel-aged slightly tart beer with a rich malt base and strong raising aroma.
