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"

reddragon (29) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Bottle: I think this is a rather underrated beer. A fine Belgian blonde with nice creamy head. Excellent pale color and aroma of citrus and malts. Some sediment in the glass, leaves little lace but has very nice flavor. Maybe should give it a try again in spring, not a cold weather beer.

rauchbier (3610) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2007
Tap, at ’t Brugs Beertje, Brugge, March 2006. Amber gold, thin white head and good condition. Gentle sweet maltiness in the nose with a delicate hop note, sweet and yeasty in the mouth with some malt tempered by a low hop bitterness, low nutty finish with a yeast bitterness and a little spiciness.Reminded me of Palm.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - NOV 29, 2007
Os bares e restaurantes de Brugge fazem excessiva propaganda dessa breja local. Trata-se de uma blonde amarga e um tanto aguada. No paladar, lúpulo e banana, com um toque de fermento.
