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.

bonkiedeaap (634) - Leerdam, - APR 18, 2014
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis. The beer has a golden blonde color and a nice white head, with a lot of CO2. In the aroma tones of yeast, caramel, herbs and of course citrus. The taste is fresh, dry and a little bitter, but overall it gives a watery mouthfeel. In the taste the tones from the aroma are very well noticable, despite of that not a very rich palate. The finish is fresh and a little bitter.

chromeotaphor (148) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2016
Muffig fris zurend aroma met hinten van citrus. Aantrekkelijk wolkige volle schuimkraag met een fel ei citrus gele kleur. Zurige bitter die vol en licht romig smaakt, lekker bruisend. Verfrissend redelijk vol van smaak, aanradertje.

Prima biertje van het vat. Duidelijke tonen van citrus en vrij steek in koolzuur. Al met al lekker fris.

erickok (5404) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2016
Hazy yellow, frothy head. The lemony notes of a typical wheat, nice enough but a little more hop please. Refreshing medium bitterness with a simple body but nice long lasting actually. Pretty nicely done especially for a wit! (On tap at the brewpub)

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