In 2005 Xavier Vanneste, son of Mrs Véronique Maes, renovated and restarted the old brewery which had been in the family since 1856. He launched Brugse Zot, a new beer with a unique recipe. Today Brugse Zot is the only beer brewed in Bruges’ town centre!
The people of Bruges are known as "Brugse Zotten" (Bruges Fools), also known as "Brugse Jonckers"

Me like it! Very nice aroma, fresh. Pours enormous white head, never saw anything similar. Almost nothing in the glass, just full of lovely foam. And it stays whole time, smaller but still present and I like it. It has very nice quite bitter finish which is what I also like in this type of beer.

flying_pig (1125) - SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2015
330ml Bottle from Albert Heijn supermarket, Amsterdam:
A light, easy going beer with a good balance that fell short of being a classic Belgian offering but was refreshing, lively and quite crisp which helped it go down easily. I’m not sure it’s one that I’d go out my way to find again but it was an enjoyable offering and one worth trying if you happen across it.

Small free glasses after the brewery tour right from the brewery tap. Very refreshing, but nothing really special. Just a decent blonde.

PlutonowyMan (131) - POLAND - APR 18, 2015
Kolor jasno ?ó?ty, z?oty, do?? m?tny. Piana spora, z drobnymi p?cherzykami, do?? d?ugo pozostaje w szkle, topniej?c pozostawia ko?uch na powierzchni trunku. Aromat owocowy, w którym prym wiedzie brzoskwinia, morela. Jest te? delikatny akcent miodowy, zio?owy i lekkie nuty trawiaste. Smak wed?ug mnie jest bardziej ubogi i mniej "oczywisty". Jest miód, nieco moreli, przypraw, troch? suchego trawiastego chmielu. Brugse Zot jest odrobin? kwaskowy, do?? mocno nagazowany, co niestety ?le wp?ywa na jego pijalno??, goryczka jest delikatna, znikoma ale wystarczaj?ca dla tego piwa, alkohol dobrze ukryty. Piwo warte uwagi, w ko?cu to te? belgijska klasyka.
