De Koninck Wild Jo 5.8°

De Koninck Wild Jo 5.8°
 
 
Bright golden yellow colour on the body, only a bit cloudy, with a small white head on top, with good density and average retention. Pretty weak aroma of pink grapefruit, wet leather, minerals, unripe plum, grass, hint of caramel, green apple, jute and white pepper. Crisp fruity taste but a bit subdued, light on the tongue with medium carbo, smooth, apple peel and peach accents, grainy, bit sourish but very softly so, leathery Brett touch in the finish but gentle, dryish finish, bit yeasty with some grassy hop bitterishness. Would be interesting to cellar for a year and see how it develops.

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.
