The inspiration for this brew originates in the night of January 27th in the year 1687. The moon projected its reddish glow on Saint Rumbold’s tower, which was wrapped in a dense fog. “Fire, fire, the tower is on fire!” shouts the dreary voice of a drunken man. The alarm was sounded and people were making haste to help extinguish the so-called fire. Before the tower was reached, the moon slowly moved through the fog. From that moment on, the Mechelenians are called the Maneblussers or “Moon extinguishers”. To commemorate their heroic deed, we brew a heroic beer called The Maneblusser. A blonde beer with an alcohol percentage of 6 % VOL. Brewed according to the traditional method of high fermentation with refermentation in the bottle. For the heroic Mechelenians, but not exclusively of course.

Fin (8569) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle consumed at Het Anker Brewery Tap, Mechelen, Belgium, Saturday 8th February 2014. Pours straw coloured with a slight haze and large white head. Quite a fresh nose, spicey in the mouth, a little bitterness. As Belgian ales go this appears to be on the refreshing, easy going thinnish side, its a jolly pleasant beer and the sort of thing that would be considered sessionable over here.

Ordinary Belgian blond beer, bit boring compared to the other Anker beers. This is just plain average.
