COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Unfiltered.
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"

Joel (114) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 2, 2015
On tap at De Halve Maan brewery in Bruges, Belgium. Pours orange with a white head. Grainy aroma. Crisp and drinkable with some mild bitterness. Sessionable, thin body, nothing special.

jjsint (1252) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from JSG Wine Merchants, Hills Rd, Cambridge. Yellow, very cloudy. A fair bit of tick but quickly dissipating white head. Smells of lemon, kumquat, clove and bready malt. The aroma is lighter than I expected but it’s still gorgeous. Sweet, easy taste. Citrus and spice (clove, cinnamon) very much in the fore. Light to medium body, warming alcoholic palette. This is a joy to drink.

Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. A sweet aroma, nothing special. The clear orange beer has a large white head. In the taste hop, sweets and alcohol. Sour comes up when the beer warms up. Medium carbonated.

florent.janssens (198) - - DEC 27, 2014
Belle mousse. Goût houblonné très léger qui s’accentue en arrière goût. Bière qui reste légère. Classique sans intérêt particulier, mais qui se boit très facilement.

patricks110 (1962) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
Pours a cloudy golden amber with a thin yellowish head. The nose has tons of caramel malts and a light citrus fruit note. Sweet caramelized malts in the middle with a bit of citrus zest, light Belgian spice notes and a floral hop that adds a bit of bitterness to the finish. A easy going but boring Belgian brew.
