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"

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 7, 2007
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with big white head, lots of carbonation, and lots of floaties... a lot of action in the glass, really. The aroma is clove, some banana, and crackers. The flavor is some yeasty clove and banana, light honey, and a bitter tone like nut shells. Hints of zest once in a while. Mild banana aftertaste. Ok, nothing special.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Sampled at Lucky Baldwins, February 2007
The beer is brilliantly clear and shows a straw gold color. It is topped by a frothy, creamy, rocky, light to pale tan colored head that is quite big for a beer from the tap and in fact leaves quite a well defined lacing pattern on the sides of the glass. The aroma is dominated by grassy hop aromatics, but there are also some fresh grain notes and a lightly toasted, biscuit malt character here as well.

The beer tastes lightly, well not it is fairly sweet, but it is deceptive as it is quite light on the palate. The flavor is grassy with notes of hay; these notes seem to be derived from both the malt / grain character as well as the particular hop choice. This beer has a really nice, pale malt character to it; the combination of malt sweetness, biscuit notes and touches of soda crackers really compliments the grassy hop notes. This tastes like a cross between a malt accented, yet still quite hoppy, pils and a Belgian ale, which is I suppose quite what the brewer was attempting. It is very easy drinking and I can definitely see quaffing a few of these on a seasoned Summer day.
