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"

roebuck (45) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2009
On tap at the Chicken In in Brugge, Belgium. Great restaurant too! Pours in a hazy yellow color. Frothy head that disolves fast. A bit like an IPA with some hops but not as intense. Mix a lighter IPA and the typical Belgian Ales and you’ve got this guy.

Bloekie (210) - BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2009
Hazy colored gold beer with a tiny head. Very fizzy. Flavor is quite sweetish, disappears quite rapidly but has a nice long cottonmouth feel to it. Palate is linear to the first sweetish taste, no distinguishable other tastes. Overall a nice beer, but nothing all too complicated.

Beer5000 (5302) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 30, 2009
330 ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma is light fruity and spicy. The flavor is light, refreshing malty with a spicy and fruity touch. Medium body and rather short finish. Drinkable but a bit anonymous and ordinary for my liking.

floydian1 (1249) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 27, 2009
330ml bottle into tulip glass at the Belgian Beer Cafe in Brisbane. A hazy golden beer with chunky sediments and a fluffy white head providing good lacing. Fruity malty aromas. Quite light bodied with malty fruity flavours (mainly oranges) and a gentle spicy bitterness to the finish. A well balanced and sessionable Belgian ale with character. I like it.
