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"

pivnizub (9161) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2007
Bottle: Orangey coloured, stable foamy layer; sweetish-sourish-fruity nose (citrus fruit with - maybe - a tinge of coriander), moderate sweetish-sourish flavour with a light bitterness, quite light bodied; citrusy aromas in the drier, sourish finish, followed by a faint bitterness in the aftertaste. Good, refreshing stuff.......

leaparsons (8576) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle. Golden with a large foam and lots of carbonation. Aromas are yeast, lemon and spices with toasty malts and strong banana. Flavours are caramel and biscuit malts followed by banana milkshake syrup. Yeasty and spicy with a bitter, dry finish. Light and drinkable.

beeranarchist (215) - Aalborg, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2007
Bottle. Yellow, clear with a medium white head. Aroma is yeast, clover, malt sweetness, banana and some alcohol. Flavour is green apples, banana with slightly bitter finish. Very refreshing and pleasant, but a little ordinary.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Pours a transparent golden with some suspended yeast particles and a large airy, clingy, pillowy white head. Sweet bready biscuity Belgian malty aroma has some peppery coriander notes and a touch of green European hops. Starts with some light flowery sweetness, foamy carbonation and a drier, slightly metallic finish. An ok Belgian ale, but I’d like to see a little more body and flavor in it.

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.

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.
