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.

Thought this might be a good beer but to me it wasn’t. A weird bitterness and lightly spices or herbs in the taste and smell.

Espuma branca com aroma de maltes e ervas. Gosto caramelado com algo de pimenta. Ótima drinkability. Retrogosto um pouco seco mas aprovadissima.

Prachtig biertje dat vol van smaak en geur is voor een blond bier. Licht fruitig aroma, klein bittertje in de smaak, maar sowieso een van de mooiere, lichtere blonde biertjes op deze klootaard

Drunk on draught in the brewery tap house. Enjoyable blonde, hoppy beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
