Bzart Geuze Cuvée 2011 8°
 
Strictly speaking not an Oude Gueuze, seen the addition of an extra yeast. Pours clear dark golden amber with a white head. Aroma of brett, apples, spice, barnyard and notes of sour grapes.. Body is medium, foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is lemon, champagne, musty, biscuity malt, tangy vinegar, dry, soft bitterness.

A beer by Brasserie des Légendes, not the same as the existing Ambiorix beers, as this is a beer which the brewery came up with themselves. (cfr. http://www.apaqw.be/…/Les-brass…/Brasserie-des-Legendes.aspx and http://www.tongeren-vandaag.be/index.php/2721-ambiorix-bier ) Pours a deek dark brown with a respectable off-white head. Aroma and taste has malt, light chocolate, medium bitterness, light roasted with faint black currant notes.

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.
