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"

Zymurgeist2 (1027) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 19, 2014
At a cafe in Brugge by the old windmill. Mostly clear orange-yellow with a spicy aroma. Taste is bland and slightly biting. Moderate bitterness on the back felt disjointed from the rest of the beer.

Keg at Draft House. Dark yellow, hazy, slightly sparkling, small foamy off-white head … dense sparse lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty with light lemon, very light wheat. Must be some wheat in this. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is light wheat ester, some lager, light straw and butter.

Elwood (3216) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Serving: 750 ml. bottle. It pours a deep gold color with a tight white head. Nice mix of Belgian yeast aromas, light caramelized malt, candied citrus peel, and spice. Straight forward flavor profile. Citrus, yeast, and a light sweet flavor. Fairly high carbonation. Not bad.

Fomos a fábrica situada em Bruges e apreciamos o sabor e toda a história que envolve essa cerveja saborosa, leve amargor e teor alcoolico moderado.

SPDickerman (955) - Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Pours murky orange with a small white head. Smells fruity with hints of caramel. Taste is caramel, banana, hints of biscuit. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and average mouth-carbonation, Brugse Zot finishes with a lingering spiciness.

Ulysse (19) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2014
Fresh hop aroma. Orange with a wall sticking foam. Carbonation tickles the tongue. Gentle feel in the mouth, ladylike.
