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”.

330ml bottle from IPB
Appearance : Clear yellow medium head. Goes away fast.
Aroma : Dusty yeast, A bit citrusy and floral.
Taste : Dusty yeast with notes of herbs.
Overall : Not very good. This feels really old. Plenty of off flavours. Astringent, citric and dusty finish.

Good Blond Ale, rich, full-bodied taste. Does not particularly stand out from the mass of Belgian Ales.

Beerhunter111 (22268) - P´Castle, GERMANY - JUL 26, 2017
33cl bottle. A almost clear pale golden beer with a huge good lasting white head. Aroma of banana, sweet malt, yeast, mild citrus. Taste of mild citrus fruits, banana, yeast, sweet fruits, sugar.

Mooi ongefilterd biertje. Verassend volle smaak met een tikje cytrus wat hem net even fris maakt en hem zo naar binnen laat rollen! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zenkis (865) - Ogre, LATVIA - JUL 20, 2017
bottle from supermarket,
Decent, average belgian ale with flavor profile of slightly dark malts touch and peppery-phenolic yeast. Medium+ dry finish, medium+ body, light lasing. Still very drinkable. Color - amber to brown.

rumore (708) - Rimini, ITALY - JUL 15, 2017
From a 33cl bottle. Pours a slightly opaque gold with medium-high white foam, scarcely persistent. Aroma is rich in esters, giving a fruity feeling. Body is fairly dense, and highly carbonated. Taste is sweet and a little spicy, not really interesting. Finish is not good, as the beer also seems to leave kind of a sandy feeling.

Lore (2873) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 3, 2017
hazy golden colour, huge amount of yeast particles and large dense white head; aroma of apricot, coriander, orange zest and lemony notes, as well as candy sugar and earthy notes; taste is the same with some spicy peppery aftertaste; not bad at all!

johndoughty (5521) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2017
Bottle. Golden with a clear appearance and small head. Slightly bitter medium body. A bit too sharp for me but still quite drinkable.

Maarten1993 (1348) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2017
Drank with Rik 23-06-17. Like a normal Belgian blond. Nothing special. Some freshness.

Det er ikke en øl man tænker på man vil ha igen, det en sgu fin i smagen det er slet ikke det. Det som taler bedst for den er udseende! - Super flot, gær som lever og leger i glasset. Der er nogen som kunne lære noget her... Smagen er meeeh
