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"

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 7, 2010
Tasted at the Zythos beer festival, Belgium.
Poured clear with a creamy, small lacing white head. Aroma of some spicy coriander, malts and belgian yeast. Medium bodied one with a malt based flavor, spicies and some belgian yeast character. Easy drinkable blond one.

obguthr (5646) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Yeast and kibble aroma. Cloudy orange with huge chunks of sediment, medium head. Tart flavor, slight grassiness, with a horehound finish. Harsh mouthfeel. Not a lot of character. Not bad tasting and the yeast chunks seem to have little effect on flavor, but it’s boring otherwise.

dnstone (2650) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 15, 2010

erickok (5397) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 11, 2010
Confusing smell with bread, citrus and leaves. Extremely clear with a minimal white head. Pleasant balance of sweet and sour. Very light body with little after-taste. Nice if you’re up to something not to complex.

Muggus69 (2100) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2010
Picked up a 330ml bottle from Brugge Creamy white head atop a lively hazy orange body. Sweet malts on the aroma, pepper, clove, coriander seed-like spice in the works with notes of ripe banana and tropical fruit. Lively carbonation, medium body, drying texture. Tart wheat malts to begin; notes of orange and ripe apricot and peach with clove and coriander spice. Dry finish, low bitterness. Quite a nice witbier-like brew, bit different from others.

branspra (293) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with an extremely large, dense, frothy white head. Lacing is strong. Aromas of oranges, hay, lemon and hints of cereal. Palate is very lively, creamy throughout and then a crisp finish. Flavors of wheat and hay abound, with a nice citrus finish. Very good session beer.

Vaiz (4258) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2010
Bottle at home, thanks dEnk! Pours a hazy coppery golden color with a thin white head. Fruity aroma with cheap malts and old beer. Slightly watery fruity and bitter flavor. A bit boring in spite of the funny looking clown on the bottle.
