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"

[1186-20080304] Tap. Grainy citrus orange hops aroma. Hazy, bright orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter hops and grainy yeast flavour with grassy hints. Medium body is bitter. Not bad, quite bitter.

Ungstrup (31416) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2008
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty with light spicy notes. The flavor is sweet malty with stronger notes of spices, leading to a dry spicy finish.

thewolf (11640) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Havnens Vin & Tobak, Vejle.
Pours clear golden with lots and lots of bubbles. They all reach towards a wonderful frothy, large, white head. Light yeasty aroma with some oranges and doughy malts. Flavour is lightly metallic, some fruity notes and a herbal, spicy, hoppy finish. Very drinkable, though.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2008
Pours golden with a long lasting white head. Hoppy aroma and nice taste for quite a light beer. Light spicyness, very little aftertaste. Very balanced and drinkable.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Hefe with odd pepper and metallic notes. Nice look and plenty of flavor for a light bodied brew. Not something you look for again at 3.30 a bottle, perhaps that is why people give it the undeserved low rating.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Pours a cloudy golden color with a decent sized off white head. Aroma of wheat, clove, and banana, smelled like a light aroma hefe. Decent flavor, but nothing special.

joergen (24402) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008

RSRIZZO (1905) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Aroma is a crisp malt scent with a hint of skunk. Color is golden with a lot of sediment floating around, looks like fish food. Carbonation is very active with a very thick dense head. Taste is light and metallic. Starting with a light body it goes down with a crisp. Finish is a light mildly sweet malt taste with a faint fruity flavor. After taste leaves you with a metallic taste and a little skunk. Not a very good Belgian brew and not something I would seek out again
