COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewery Het Anker decided to brew an easy drinkable city beer for the Mechelenians, still peppy enough in order to enjoy it to the fullest. We brew a heroic beer called Maneblusser. It’s a blond beer with an alcohol percentage of 5.8% vol. in which you can taste a subtle citrus aroma and a fine finish. Maneblusser is brewed according to the traditional method of high fermentation with refermentation in the bottle.

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 “Moonextinguishers”.

Small white head, stable, over pale gold beer. Coriandersoup, disgustingly overpowering spicy nose, wether it is really there or not. Flat corianderflavour, hopelessly perfumed by yeastflavours. Light medium bodied, bit spritzy. As the ingredientlist speaks of no spices, the corianderflavour is probably due to some weird yeastcomponent, but that knowledge does not help it from being uninviting. As to the reason for this beer, I’m mystified.

On tap at The Beer Brothers Zomerbierfestival, Mechelen. Hazy golden with a rich white head. Spicy coriander nose. Sweetish, quite a bit of coriander flavours. Too much coriander in other words.

Tasted today on tap @ Perron M, beerfestival Beer Brothers, Mechelen. Almost clear blond color, wth nice white head. Aroma: yeast, fruits touch, hops. Medium body. Taste fruity, with malt notes. Good hop bitterness. More hops than Margriet before. Like it.
