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"

vyvvy (4135) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Pours copper / orange with a fizzy off-white head. The aroma has sweet toasted malt, Belgium yeast, lightly paper, basement must and some sweetness. Medium / light body with lots of tiny bubbly carbonation. The flavor starts with toasty bready malt, peppery spice, hazelnut and earthiness. The finish is overly spicy and doesn’t have much else. A fair Belgium ale.

gmonroe10 (243) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2008
Tap at ’t Loosje, Nieuwe Markt. Pours a dark brown with a bit of gold, one finger head. Sweet malt with a nice hoppy fast finish. Lacking a bit of complexity, but a good beer.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2008
33cl bottle from Habersham Liquors (Savannah, GA). Pours a dark golden honey color with a one finger white head. Good head retention and clearly visible particulate matter swirly in the glass. Smells sweet, almost like honey, with notes of caramel, slightly musty bread and yeast. Taste is much of the same -- slightly sweet, bready, notes of malt and faint honey. Light to medium mouthfeel with a quick finish.

mabel (6777) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2008
[1186-20080304] Tap. Grainy citrus orange hops aroma. Hazy, bright orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter hops and grainy yeast flavour with grassy hints. Medium body is bitter. Not bad, quite bitter.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2008
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty with light spicy notes. The flavor is sweet malty with stronger notes of spices, leading to a dry spicy finish.

thewolf (11259) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Havnens Vin & Tobak, Vejle.
Pours clear golden with lots and lots of bubbles. They all reach towards a wonderful frothy, large, white head. Light yeasty aroma with some oranges and doughy malts. Flavour is lightly metallic, some fruity notes and a herbal, spicy, hoppy finish. Very drinkable, though.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2008
Pours golden with a long lasting white head. Hoppy aroma and nice taste for quite a light beer. Light spicyness, very little aftertaste. Very balanced and drinkable.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Hefe with odd pepper and metallic notes. Nice look and plenty of flavor for a light bodied brew. Not something you look for again at 3.30 a bottle, perhaps that is why people give it the undeserved low rating.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Pours a cloudy golden color with a decent sized off white head. Aroma of wheat, clove, and banana, smelled like a light aroma hefe. Decent flavor, but nothing special.

(Draught on 2008-05-19, rated from memory) Golden and cloudy. Quite big white head. Yeasty and bit malty nose. Yeast and some sweetness in taste.
