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"

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Fairly disappointing, all fluffly and light without much aroma or flavor. It’s a slightly hazed gold with a foamy head. It smells of yeast and a very light, pale malt. The flavor has a little citric tartness added to it and it has a dry finish. Whoopty-doo.

MissKicha (5) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2007 does not count
Tap at the brewery. Golden color with floaters. No haze. Light carbonation. Leafy nose. A slightly skunky flavor. Not one of the better Belgians.

iowaherkeye (2690) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2007
11.2oz bottle, Notched @ February 2009. Pours a hazy golden with many floaty chunks and a three finger fizzy white head. Aroma of some dusty hops, mild oxidation, doughy yeast, spice, a bit of lemon and banana. Pretty sweet smelling. Up front is an off taste that I can’t describe--kind of overly sweet and past its prime old--with some paper and a dry finish. Highly carbonated, lighter in body. Not too good.

altonbrownd (3766) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle at home. Orange, skunky taste. Sweet and citrusy. Spicy. Much carb, in the mouthfeel. Fair enough.

bb (6784) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Bottle. Amber beer with a huge off-white head. Sweet malt aroma with yeast and some spiciness. Yeasty, spicy flavor. Very dry. Lingering yeast. Very high carbonation.

SilkTork (5163) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2007
Bottle - unfiltered. A dry pale ale with spice notes from the yeast. Moderate carbonation. So dry this could be a strong lager. The interest comes from the yeast notes. The malt is too clean to be interesting, and the hops are lager hops and quite dull. Faint citric notes. Less than average beer.

goozen (2875) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2006
A nice dark golden beer with a bitter, citrus taste an d carbonation on the Tongue, pretty nice

cheap (3943) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2006 Never knew this existed until found one at my company party. Boy was I surprized. Looks like any other pale yellow american beer. Aroma of yeast and when you taste it, it’s a bit bitter initially but not terribly. Regular beer flavor, nothing really different that I could pick out. Could be a bit less offensive on the taste buds. Nice tingly carbonation that picks at the back of your tongue. Finish is not real offensive but does linger for a while.

JonMoore (1841) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2006
Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a huge white head. Fresh citrus, orange peel and yeast aroma. Taste is sweet, spicey and fruity with lemon, fresh yeast and a light bitter and dry finish. Nice.

DanBerg (59) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2006
Drank on tap at Kafe Belgie, Utrecht. Blond Belgian Ale with a nice colour and average size of head. It tasted a bit like a Belgian white instead of an Ale, due because of the citrus aroma and fresh taste. Will drink this again.
