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"

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a murky medium dark orange with a thin, but long lasting white beady head. Fruity aroma with some prune-like accents. Flavor has some of the same pruney accents, with some yeasty notes, a bit of candied sugar, and kind of an unpleasant stale taste. Moderately thick mouthfeel. Middle of the road Belgian.

On tap. a light yet slightly sharp aroma. Typical Belgian taste good enough but not especially unique. Almost a wheat taste.

wyzzywyz22 (2094) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2008
Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Poured a slightly hazy golden colour with a smallish white head. Yawn. Aroma was stale cheesy farts, some hop and yeast. Not the nicest. Some grassy hop in the flavour, but a nasty metallic twang was evident that blighted this for me. Somewhat lager like in character and very disappointing.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - AUG 28, 2008
on tap at papago... crystal clear gold color with a small white head. not a whole lot going on in the aroma... mostly yeast with grass, earth and some faint spiciness. flavors of yeast, spice, grape-like sweetness with a dry twig-like bitterness on the finish. as it warms a "corked wine" aroma and flavor appear... very odd. medium body with low carbonation.

nbutler11 (1267) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2008
Poured like apple cider from the tap at Papago -- completely devoid of carbonation or foam. Apple, pear, and faint chardonnay grapes on the nose. Nectar mouthfeel with the sweetness of syruppy pear. Slightly tart finish.

8/23/08: Bottle.
Yellow-brown-orange body with a yellow white head which is medium-large. Spicy champagne nose that includes gasoline or some type of liquid chemical toward the back. which is more pronounced as the beer warms. Flavor has a lot of citrus up front - yeast, bread dough. Finish is a bit sour.

Borresteijn (5248) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2008
On tap @ the brewery, last year. Golden colour, white head. Aroma of fruits and hops. Flavour is light, somewhere in between a Leffe blond and a Straffe Hendrik. Soft sweetness, a little dry. Metallic. OK.

not a bad beer at all. Shits on most beers thats for sure. Malty with a mettalic aftertaste. Head diminishes pretty quickly though. Had this one on tap and is a nice amber colour. Reccomended.
