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"

Beer5000 (5469) - 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 (1285) - 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.

ekstedt (6232) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2010 Bottle (33 cl) at the brewpub at Bredaryd Wärdshus. Shady golden, medium white head. Fruity aroma with oranges and tangerine. Good balanced, dry with low bitterness. Draught at the brewery. Much better this time, fresh with fruity notes and floral hops. Very refreshing.

johndoughty (4619) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2009
Bottle. Golden with a small head. Crisp bitterness prevails that lingers for a while. Reasonable but not one I would try again.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2009
Rather plain Belgian, somewhat more wheaty than expected. Overall it is fair with a clear yellow body and a medium sized head with lacing.

Plovmand (7290) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 12, 2009
Bottle. Clear golden body with a medium creamy white head. Yeasty and bit spicy aroma with dry fruity notes. Light hoppy as well. Mild taste of fresh fruit and Belgian yeast. Medium bodied. Thirst quenching brew.

SudsMcDuff (7519) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - APR 4, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2010 I walked by a dry-cleaners at 3:00 in the morning and there was a sign on the door that said, "Sorry, We Are Closed." You don’t need to be sorry. It’s 3:00 in the morning, and you’re a dry-cleaner... it would be ridiculous for me to expect you to be open. .. . gold on the pour.. . big wispy head, lacing is killer .. . muddled and more muddled .. pretty damn sweet .. . a good Belgian but very middle of the road ..

December 2008 bottle. Pours yellow with a huge white head. Malty aroma’s linger through this sweet/sour beer. Impression of syrupy grains maybe dried bananapeel. Spicy aftertaste.
