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 :)
