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"

nbutler11 (1267) - Rota, SPAIN - AUG 24, 2008
Poured like apple cider from the tap at Papago -- completely devoid of carbonation or foam. Apple, pear, and faint chardonnay grapes on the nose. Nectar mouthfeel with the sweetness of syruppy pear. Slightly tart finish.

8/23/08: Bottle.
Yellow-brown-orange body with a yellow white head which is medium-large. Spicy champagne nose that includes gasoline or some type of liquid chemical toward the back. which is more pronounced as the beer warms. Flavor has a lot of citrus up front - yeast, bread dough. Finish is a bit sour.

Borresteijn (5478) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2008
On tap @ the brewery, last year. Golden colour, white head. Aroma of fruits and hops. Flavour is light, somewhere in between a Leffe blond and a Straffe Hendrik. Soft sweetness, a little dry. Metallic. OK.

not a bad beer at all. Shits on most beers thats for sure. Malty with a mettalic aftertaste. Head diminishes pretty quickly though. Had this one on tap and is a nice amber colour. Reccomended.

Beerman6686 (5405) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Poured a cloudy blonde color with an off white head. Aroma was subdued and malty with a bit of a sourness to it. Flavor was also a bit sour, but did not get in the way, of the sweet candy sugar and spices that this beer has. Not bad.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUL 29, 2008
(330 ml bottle (marked 4/09) from Tully’s) Pours somewhat cloudy bronze-ish amber with three fingers of puffy off-white head. Lots of chunks in the bottle. Aroma is kind of light candy-sweet, a touch fruity but not really a whole lot going on. Mouthfeel is quite soft and light but a touch fizzy as well. Fine sheets of lacing. Flavor is a bit yeasty with some candyish malt sweetness and light fruitiness. Has a more bitter finish than normal for a Belgian. Has a bit of a metallic note. Fair.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville. Clear golden pour with gauzy white and lasting head. Very bready nose with some metallic notes. More on the palate, really with some added mild citrus. Okay, but not great.

shrubber85 (9146) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Bottle. Peach and sour malt aroma with hint of astringency. Pale yellow color with moderate head. Light peach malt and astringent alcohol flavor. Bland - not much there.
