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"

erickok (5449) - 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.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden body with a white head. Sweet initally with hints of sugar cane, some light citrus and a lightly tart lemon finish. Soft carbonation with a mild body and a decent citrus finish. Okay.

Muggus69 (2134) - 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 (4327) - 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.

Joen (45) - Tricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2010
A pale colored beer with colorless head. A nice yeast aroma, but in the background you recognise some hops/ A sweet taste with some hop accents but they don’t linger. The sweet tast will conquer you senses and stay there. I don’t like the happy endings, I prefer a bitter end.

One of the better beers I’ve had lately. Real nice and bubble gum like. It had a nice flavor to it that went down very easy. Slightly yeasty I would readily drink this again.

On tap at the brewpub in Brugges. A nice yellow/orange beer with a decent sized head. The aroma is zesty and hoppy. The taste is fresh, peachy and spicy. Not bad at all.
