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"

Fatehunter (2066) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Poured from a bottle into a Brugse Zot glass. Golden, transparent color. Only the faintest head formed. A very light smelling beer. A hint of pear and other fruits. Taste: Slightly malty, some bright fruits and just clean tasting. Overall subtle flavors but still good. Light and crisp with moderate carbonation. Great beer. Very drinkable, goes down easy but with some nice flavors. All the notes are subtle but still appreciated.

Pours a hazy orange straw colour with a thick, fluffy white head. Nose is yeast, bread, banana, orange citrus, clove and coriander. Taste is rather sweet. Palate is dominated by cereal, banana, clove, coriander and orange.B@H

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
