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"

Otje (677) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2006
On tap, cafe Studio, Haarlem. Hoppy, citrussy aroma, a bit skunked. Malty, sourrish flavour with a good bitter hoppy finish. A bit thin and lager-like, not a very pronounced flavour.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle: Muddy golden, very hazy, huge fluffy white head, fairly strong carbonation.   Sweet candyish nose, a bit bready, slightly husky.   Soft spicy breadiness on the tongue.   Some floral aspects.   Grassy malt finish, semi-sweet, with subtle spices.   Fairly pleasant.   Nothing out of the ordinary, but certainly a quaffable Belgian Ale.   Mouthfeel is somewhat wheaty.

zug4abby (287) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 12, 2006
Bottle thanks to Hairofthedog from our recent trip to Belgium! Pours a slightly cloudy golden/yellow color with a small head and just a little bit (of very sticky) lacing. Aroma is light and slightly grassy, but not a whole lot to the nose. Flavor is similar, light and grassy with slightly sweet hints at the end. Very smooth and easy to drink.

TheBeerGod (5179) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Draft. Clear golden body. Nose is flowery, yeasty, and very fruity. Taset elicits stronger fruit notes, yeast, light spices, and bitter floral notes. Body is medium and has a fine carbonation feel to it. Finishes with banana, yeast, grains, light alcohol and flowers.
