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"

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.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2010
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.

wheresthepath (2115) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2010
[330ml bottle at The Retreat, Reading] Pale yellow, small and diminishing white head, rather fizzy. The brewer’s giant wine glass fails to improve the appearance. Flavour has a hint of gammon (like a watered down Leffe Blonde) with some honey behind. Some dusty cardboard from the brewer’s attic has clearly fallen into the mash tun. Citrus comes through in the finish. Rather bland and fizzy.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Clear dark gold, but downright chunky with flocculated sediment. Very exuberant off-white head. Floral and carbonic notes combine well in the aroma, something of a champagne character. Flavor overall fruity, pear, strawberry, melon, against a yeasty-must background. Very lively palate, but chunks large enough to feel as your drink are a bit much for me.

planky84 (2866) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2010
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Amber pour with a white lasting head. Aromas of burnt sugars, herbs, coriander. Flavours of bitter lemon, grapefruit, some spice, quite fruity. Finishes moderately bitter.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours golden with a lot of sediment. The nose has a lot of apple in it such as a dry cider might. The flavor is pretty sweet. Hints of candy but not much else. Something is a little off in the aftertaste. Not my favorite.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Sugar and cereal malts on the nose, sweet with just a hint of spice. Pours a hazy chunky blonde and thin white head that dissipates. Sweet malts, candi sugars, and cereal grains with just hint of cidery flavor. Not very good.
