Dave Nicholls, the brewer at Moa here. Left a reply re the Wellington tasting for you to have a read of.
What's your courier address as no need to win lotto, I will send some of the 750ml range for you to try! Thanks for the comments on the St Josephs, a beer that I'm really pleased with
Hi Steph. Thanks for the comments on the Original. Strange you find pineapple as I am aiming for no esters at all with a very low temp fermentation (<10) so the dominant flavours are yeast and hop derived.
Another fruit beer....might do something for next summer, not sure what yet. We have a cider comming out soon and I'm working on a quad/belgian strong/tripel bock (call it what you want, I'm not really a style brewer) and an imperial stout. Both will be aged in newish oak (joys of having a winery next door).
Yep, I'll be helping out hopefully (assuming I'm still in the country). I sent Ian a mail a long while back, but haven't yet had time to respond to his latest mail - on the last day of a 2 week work trip to the US, including a whole bunch of beer tasting :)
Hi Steph, have you tried the Noir yet? I read with interest your comments re the Emersons Belgian tasting, wish I had been there as the more I brew the more I lean toward the Belgian. Heard a rumour that a St Josephs had been included.....any truth? By the way I'm bottling a wee batch of the St J that has been in oak for 10 months. A four pack is on its way to you when its ready in exchange for honest feedback....are you interested?
Had a spare ticket for the event at Bar Edward if you wanted it. The Malthouse was fun last night, but decided (wisely at the time) to bail because I had an early start this morning with work! Crept out the back door without anyone seeing me :)
Hey Steph - what's the deal with Friday next? I assume I just turn up at some stage? Still not sure if I'll actually get to attend a session since I have friends/family up that weekend, but put me down for Saturday 12pm session and if I can't attend, I can't attend :(
