Beer Report #9 – Maneblusser (moon extinguisher)
Hello BelgianChef (cryptospeak) here,
My ninth beer report will be a report on the beer Maneblusser (translated to English: moon extinguisher). The name has a funny history behind it, it all started back in 1687 when a guy walked out of the bar and thought the St.-Rombout's tower was on fire. He quickly alerted everyone and within a matter of time the whole village knew what was happening and started to extinguish the fire by going up the tower with buckets of water. Once they were at the fire they quickly realised that there was no fire, it was the moon and the low clouds that made it seem like there was smoke coming out of the tower.
Information about the beer
Maneblusser is a gold-yellow hazy colored, slightly bitter, fruity, sweet and smooth tasting beer. It's brewed at the Het Anker brewery (the same brewery as report #8, the brewery has many more beers) in Mechelen, Belgium.
