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"

750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, yeast, pineapple, pear and light spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw, yeast, pineapple, light earthiness and a hint of spice with a crisp finish.

Fruity, relatively light drink. Hint of nutmeg in taste and aroma. Distantly reminds of Karmeliet mixed with regular Chouffe. Not bad.

MarkoNm (255) - SLOVENIA - APR 21, 2014
Pours a hazy golden color, topped with a decent white head. There is a weak malty aroma, aided by some yeasty smell too. The taste is between bitter and sweet, finishing with a slight spicey feel. A very decent beer.

Beer is a hazy, light golden color. Head quickly dissipates to thick lacing. Aroma is apple sweetness. Flavor is sweet with a tangy or sour component, ultimately quenching. Similar tartness to a Flemish Red. From notes taken at Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan, June 7 2007.

dr_brewer (4) - Ourense, SPAIN - APR 4, 2014 does not count
Poured @the brewery, unfiltered. Hazy dark blonde. Nose is (pils) malty and hoppy. In the taste the hoppy bitterness dominates. I miss the balance of the old one where you note a little bit of coriander. Refreshing though.
