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"

Cask at the New Oxford in Salford, near Manchester, Belgian Beer Festival. Cloudy dark browny gold. Notes are rubbish as I was very drunk by this time. I liked it though, needs a re-rate.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Pours a dirty straw/gold color, cloudy with a an initially large fizzy white head, but it fades fairly quick. Aroma is quintessentially "Belgian ale" to me. Hay, lemon, dirt, grass, coriander, it’s got some things in common with wits and saisons, but it’s not as peculiar as either. Flavor is similar with dirt, grass, earth, old citrus, and slighty spicy yeast. Finishes with bread, lemon and lingering yeast pungency. Thin and fizzy mouthfeel. It’s pretty decent, almost like a maltier pilsner brewed with Belgian yeast. Maybe that’s exactly what this is...

malrubius (2609) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 4, 2008
750 ml 2007 bottle split in Duvel glass. clear golden with lasting white head and lace. Enticing and assertive spicy yeasty zesty floral aroma. Very mild honey sweetness with with apricot/cantaloupe fruitiness and spicy dry finish with a little carbo bite and some wateriness. Quaffable, almost to a fault. The flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. But still, very good. I could drink this all night.

PorterPounder (7412) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a murky medium dark orange with a thin, but long lasting white beady head. Fruity aroma with some prune-like accents. Flavor has some of the same pruney accents, with some yeasty notes, a bit of candied sugar, and kind of an unpleasant stale taste. Moderately thick mouthfeel. Middle of the road Belgian.

On tap. a light yet slightly sharp aroma. Typical Belgian taste good enough but not especially unique. Almost a wheat taste.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2008
Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Poured a slightly hazy golden colour with a smallish white head. Yawn. Aroma was stale cheesy farts, some hop and yeast. Not the nicest. Some grassy hop in the flavour, but a nasty metallic twang was evident that blighted this for me. Somewhat lager like in character and very disappointing.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - AUG 28, 2008
on tap at papago... crystal clear gold color with a small white head. not a whole lot going on in the aroma... mostly yeast with grass, earth and some faint spiciness. flavors of yeast, spice, grape-like sweetness with a dry twig-like bitterness on the finish. as it warms a "corked wine" aroma and flavor appear... very odd. medium body with low carbonation.
