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"

Beerman6686 (6249) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Poured a cloudy blonde color with an off white head. Aroma was subdued and malty with a bit of a sourness to it. Flavor was also a bit sour, but did not get in the way, of the sweet candy sugar and spices that this beer has. Not bad.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUL 29, 2008
(330 ml bottle (marked 4/09) from Tully’s) Pours somewhat cloudy bronze-ish amber with three fingers of puffy off-white head. Lots of chunks in the bottle. Aroma is kind of light candy-sweet, a touch fruity but not really a whole lot going on. Mouthfeel is quite soft and light but a touch fizzy as well. Fine sheets of lacing. Flavor is a bit yeasty with some candyish malt sweetness and light fruitiness. Has a more bitter finish than normal for a Belgian. Has a bit of a metallic note. Fair.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville. Clear golden pour with gauzy white and lasting head. Very bready nose with some metallic notes. More on the palate, really with some added mild citrus. Okay, but not great.

vyvvy (5674) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Pours copper / orange with a fizzy off-white head. The aroma has sweet toasted malt, Belgium yeast, lightly paper, basement must and some sweetness. Medium / light body with lots of tiny bubbly carbonation. The flavor starts with toasty bready malt, peppery spice, hazelnut and earthiness. The finish is overly spicy and doesn’t have much else. A fair Belgium ale.

gmonroe10 (243) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2008
Tap at ’t Loosje, Nieuwe Markt. Pours a dark brown with a bit of gold, one finger head. Sweet malt with a nice hoppy fast finish. Lacking a bit of complexity, but a good beer.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2008
33cl bottle from Habersham Liquors (Savannah, GA). Pours a dark golden honey color with a one finger white head. Good head retention and clearly visible particulate matter swirly in the glass. Smells sweet, almost like honey, with notes of caramel, slightly musty bread and yeast. Taste is much of the same -- slightly sweet, bready, notes of malt and faint honey. Light to medium mouthfeel with a quick finish.
