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"

Apart from everyone else it seems, I found the aftertaste fo this beer exquisite. Its a nice mix between a light and a dark beer. highly recommended.

Bottle from Ledgers; BB Feb 09; Nose of banana esters, spices, caramel and yeast; clear darl gold with a small off white head; flavor with caramel, light fruitiness, spices, and some background hop bitterness, the mild hops lasting into a very tiny bitter finish!

Cornfield (5570) - 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 (2698) - 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 (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle at home. Orange, skunky taste. Sweet and citrusy. Spicy. Much carb, in the mouthfeel. Fair enough.
