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"

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2006
Darker golden yellow coloured, with a rather large white head, and some light sprankling. Deep malty, fruity and light spicy aroma with in the background some fresh hops. Full body, nice balanced. Finish is dry hoppy, just a little bitter. This is an excelent beer.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Poured a clear gold with a dense lasting head. The aromas from this beer are quite enticing, pilsner meets belgian golden. Herbal hops blend with banana and melon with a stiff maltiness. Flavors on the other hand fall very short of the bar the aromas set. A syrupy sweetness combined with a unappealing harsh bitterness and hop flavor. Some yeasty fruitiness only confuses the beer. The aftertaste is sweet yet bitter and harsh and, to the benifit of the brewer, makes you want to drink more because the initial impression is better than the end.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Lightly hazed, dark golden color with a taller off-white head. Mild bananas and fresh wood shavings in the aroma. Hints of malt and floral hops in the nose. Quite zippy in feel. Pale malt and a touch of lemon cleaner in the flavors. Really nice finishing flavor and linger with a nice balance of floral hops and lightly toasted malt the begs for one more try. Too boring in the front.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2006
Poured with a huge head, very carbonated, abit of spiciness to it, seems abit citrusy, grassy. Ok,but not balanced enough for me.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Crystal gold in color with a large white head with a good thick,creamy head. Aroma is fruity,bananas and spice. Flavor is of sweet malt and finishes with a zest of spicy bitterness.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Part of the entrance fee for a tour of De Halve Maan included a free serving of this. What’s better than free beer? Free good beer. This was very enjoyable with a bowl of the house beer and cheese soup, which is literally soup with cubes of cheese. Rather well-balanced with some discernible hops and a hint of mace. Dry, crisp finish.

ABUSEDGOAT (2351) - California, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Cloudy golden with a puffy head. Aroma was lemony with light sugars, nothing impressive. Flavor was the same, once again nothing special. Bah

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Draught at the Bruge Bear. Poured clear golden and frothy in a stemmed goblet. Yeast, fruit and spice in the aroma. The Flavor reminds me of a cross between a German Pils and a Triple. Quite refreshing.

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 (6239) - 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.
