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"

Dedollewaitor (14488) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2007
Cloudy gold with little white head. Blond fruity & slight spicy. Light sweet & good aroma. Very pleasant in taste also. Medium bodied & well balanced. Easy drinkable & perhaps a bit too simple.

(Bottle, Akkurat, Stockholm, 19 Nov 2007) Golden colour with brief white head. Fruity nose with peaches and spicy hops. Possibly a hint of smoke. Fruity, spicy taste with notes of tropical fruit, apricots, pineapple and spicy hops in a fairly bitter finish. Nice belgian blond.

tomciccateri (1028) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - OCT 11, 2007
From a brown 33cl bottle notched August 2010. Pours a clear gold with little head. Dull, estery aromas. Light-bodied, fizzy mouthfeel, light pale malt falvor, slight hops flavor, slightly complex fermentation components. Slightly sweet flavor balance. Very carbonated.

Bottle from Ghent. Gold colour with a good head. An easy drinking Belgian ale, but nothing special.

Draught @ 9th Belgian Beer Weekend, Brussels. Clear medium orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, moderate yeasty, fruit. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (020907)

MartinT (8396) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed fruitiness seeps from the simple maltiness, as doughy yeast offers subtle plantanes to balance out a supporting hop bitterness. This Belgian Ale doesn’t carry enough substance to keep me entertained for more than a glass, but I cannot say it is severely flawed.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam lingers atop the pale golden, full of floaties.
-The finish is dry and somewhat mineral; simple and crisp.
-Carbonation is fluffy and expansive.
-Alcohol is tasted at 6%?!?
-The body is lean and made for sessions.
-A soft spiciness develops into furtive citrus fruit.

Bottle; best before July 2009.

Bottle @ Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Clean, crisp unspectacular ale. Easy drinking Belgian session beer.Not going to knock your socks off but wont disappoint either.

Enjoyit (3573) - Vadum, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2007
Amber of color with a white head. An aroma of spice, sweets and notes of fruits. A flavor of sweets, spice, toffee and a bitter finish.
