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"

baraciisch (2291) - California, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Light orange to gold in color, slightly cloudy, thin foam head, sweet crisp wheaty flavor, slightly bitter finish on the palate, aroma is slightly yeasty, never been a big fan of the blonde ale, trippel is better but not bad nonetheless... Like a wheat beer with a pilsner finish

sebletitje (7498) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2009
bottle. pours hazy golden with quickly disappearing white head. Lots of floating sediments. Aroma has notes of Belgian yeast, grainy and some fruits. Taste, yeasty, some malts, light fruits sweetness almost banana putting it right under an abbey style. Finish of light bitterness, with some spices felt on the palate and good bubbly carbonation mouthfeel. Disappointed by the overall palate.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 7, 2009
330ml bottle at Novare Res. Pours a golden cloudy with a big frothy head. Aroma is light and foofy, like flowers, mint, and grass. Flavors are light also, just citrus, grassy, and yeasty. Subtle caramelly note in the finish. Smooth and soft in the mouth with a slight sting on the palate.

esox (1179) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2009
Draught @ the brewery. Hazy orange to yellow beer with a large white head. The aroma is quite hoppy and spicy. Coriander and orange peel are quite obvious, also some dried fruits in the finish. The flavor is mellow, medium bitter and it has some sweetness on dried fruits, The palate is very smooth, soft and medium bodied. Very easy to drink.

radagast83 (5606) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2009
11.2 oz bottle. Pours a yellow color with a foamy white head. Aroma is citrus and yeast. Flavor is alright, but there are too many floaties in the beer for my taste.

Although it’s nothing spectacular compared with other Belgian ales, I still enjoyed it thoroughly. Pours nicely with a thick head and I like the suspended particles...it gives the beer a certain uniqueness or identity. The taste was smooth with subtle notes of lemon and not overly bitter.
