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"

Pinball (11918) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2009
clear orange, large white to offwhite head with lacing. aroma is fruity, faint banana, yellow fruity aroma with grapes, citrus fruits etc. warming up i got more sweetness, more banana, even some peaches. flavor is a bit bitter, notes of yellow fruits, faint citrus, yeast. the flavor is in fact fine, but the yeasty bitterness gets in the way.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Slightly cloudy golden pour with a white head. Mild citrus aroma. Flavor is similar, but contains some mild garbage notes at first. This fades, and the beer gets a little bit better, but remains average at best.

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2009
After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and evenly of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a thick golden color and a light acid taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a fruity touch. This beer smells malty.

The beer that the Brewer gives at the end of the tour should encourage people to want to drink the other beers that the brewery has to offer right? Well, in Belgium, Brugse Zot does not cut it. There are too may beers that are far better then this. THis beers does have a good aroma of citrus from the yeast selection. BTW the tour is pretty good, but very basic about brewing. The old equipment is nice to see.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Draft at De Halve Maan after the brewery tour. Pours a cloudy, dark, orange amber hue with a frothy, off-white head of foam. A wet, soapy wash mostly rejoins the body, though a few scant spots remain behind on the glass. The aroma is based in blonde candy sugar, showing hints of banana, and is spiced with coriander, orange peel, and soft floral hops. Flavors are largely the same, again sweet up front with blonde candy, yet balanced decently on the back end with spicy coriander and dried wildflowers. Mediuml bodied, with lively carbonation, the palate is easy going, finishing clean. Solid spicy blond, but nothing special.

Travlr (21174) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 4, 2009
On draught at Delirium in Brussels. Straw colored with a medium large white head. Aroma of citrus and hay. Yeasty flavor with some spice and citrus. Bitter edge. Not bad, but lacks complexity.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2010 09.09.09 Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a small cream color head that did not stay long. Taste has high carbonation. Aroma is not very present but a hint of malts and citrus is found. Flavors of yeast is very present, with fruity and spicy notes, and with a sweet and bitter finish. Dry and with a not of a smoky flavor last in mouth. Did not particularly enjoyed this beer. Re-Rate, 20.05.10: Pours a clear golden colorwith some yeast floating around and with a medium size white head. Aroma od malts, hops and some honey and spices. Flavors of malts and yeast, some hints of honey, some lemon and spices. Good carbonation, some sweetness but mostly bitter and dry finish. There is a small metalic feel to it though.

wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2009
Draught é L’Estaminet, Brugge. Beautiful blonde ale with thick, white, lacing and durable head. Grainy aroma, with some spicy notes. Taste is also grainy and spicy, with a fruity, honey note on it and yeasty. It finishes light hoppy and bitter, with a full mouthfeel. Refreshing and dry beer. A good one to drink, but lacks a bit in overall taste to be a real top beer.
