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"

Golden color, hazy; lasting, large white head - Definite malt aroma, cereals, grains, fruits, citrus and floral hops, hints of yeast and sugar - medium sweet and slightly bitter taste - full body, rather thick and smooth texture, soft carbonation - slightly sweet and bitter finish.

ronaldtheriot (1404) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Brugse Zot has a thick, off-white head, a minimal amount of lacing left behind, and a semi-clear, golden appearance, which goes to milky gold-tan, when the bottom dregs are fully swished and poured in. The aroma is of sweet, light malt, and the flavor is of that, along with mild bitterness, grain husk, lemon juice, sugar, and some sourness. Mouthfeel is medium (or, even fuller) and very prickly from the carbonation. Brugse Zot finishes similar to champagne. RJT

fiammanghilla (702) - Genova, ITALY - FEB 8, 2015
Bottiglia 75 cl, bevuta al bacciere baciccia. Chaira con bella schiuma. Piuttosto secca, non eccezionale ma bevibile e godibile.

De Halve Maan Brouwerij also makes this beer. Unlike their Straffe Hendrik brand, this is a 6% blond beer. Fresh, sweet and light; but still with the excellence this brewery is known for.

Hazy gold beer, good size pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and minerally crisp. Airy dry pale malts, trace of cream. Sweetish banana esters and a very light touch of sweetish fruits and citrus. Airy dry finish. Okay.

Light golden, slightly hazy, with a big frothy white head. Foamy in the mouth with a nice bit of carbonation. Aroma of yeast, pepper, clove, dough. Tastes of clove, spice and light citrus fruit. Typically Belgian - I like it.
