COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

mutz (683) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2015
Tap @ brasserie het anker, Mechelen. Te koud getapt wat mij betreft. Lichtgele kleur, troebel, plakkerige kraag. Ruikt en smaakt bitterzuur . Behoorlijk waterig, niet zo mijn smaak.

Fluxing (472) - POLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Kolor jasnozloty, lekko zmetnione. Bardzo obfita piana, genialnie oblepia szklo. W aromacie pelno gumy balonowej, bananow, gozdzikow, owocow, przypraw. W odczuciu polpelne, gladkie. W smaku drozdzowo-kwaskowate, mocno przyprawowe i to wlasciwie tyle, ale dobrze pijalne. Goryczka niska, mocno przyprawowa i lodygowa.

Hoppy_Luke (494) - Poznań, POLAND - MAR 5, 2015
Maneblusser po przelaniu do szkła ma złotą barwę i dość wysoką, ale złożoną z grubych i średnich pęcherzyków, pianę. Owa piana szybko kazała o sobie zapomnieć! Aromat słaby, ledwie wyczuwalny... Belgia nieznacznie daje o sobie znać... Smak bardzo jałowy, niczym koncerniak. Do tego lekko metaliczny. Alkohol dobrze ukryty. Całościowo mało belgijski! Ogólnie nic specjalnego...
