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"

I tried this from a bottle at a bar and later on draft at the brewery in it’s unfiltered form. Aroma is subtle Belgian character, slighly malty with a hints of grass and citrus. It has a thick, long lasting head, especially from draft. It has a satisfyingly full flavour without being overpowering or rich, slighly malty, yeasty, grassy with a smokey aftertaste. The brewery draft version had more bitter bite to it, and a bigger aftertaste that was slightly metallic, you kept wanting another sip to experience it. Very good beer!

What to say. I didn’t find this belgian beer very belgian. Spicy but flat tadte. A little mouthfeel and too little aftertaste.

Tap@Halvemaan. Pours hazy golden with white head. Aroma is light malty and floral with some banana and koriander. Taste is malty with bread and biscuit, yet fruity with banana and koriander. Finish is quite balanced dry and malty.

Een tegenvallend Belgisch speciaalbier. Een iets te bittere nasmaak waardoor deze niet fijn te drinken is. Zonde

Bardzo delikatne w smaku. Ładna biała piana. Piwo niczym szczególnym się nie wyróżnia, ale jest dobre. Very delicate in flavor. Nice white foam. Beer anything in particular stands out, but it is good.

Flesje thuis gedronken. Donkergeel, helder bier met stevig wit schuim. Aroma van citrusvruchten hop. Smaak is bitter en fruitig. Nasmaak is iets bitter / wrang.

Heidbummer (194) - SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours hazy gold with thick white head. Yeast and banana nose. A bit thin for the abv, slightly cloying. Not too much banana on the taste, mostly yeast. I’ve had this on draught at the brewery and it was lighter, more floral and way more refreshing. It’s OK in bottle but it’s lost quite a bit of it’s freshness unfortunately.

Fules (727) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 14, 2016
Hatalmas, tartós hab, borostyán szín. Kissé édeskés, fűszeres illat. Édeskés-savanykás, fűszeres, komlós ízvilág. Közepes test, sok szénsav, enyhe keserű. Valahogy nem illik bele a savanyú. Nem jött be.

Medium malt, herb aroma. Hazy amber, big long off-white head. Medium sweet and bitter, a little bitter finish. Light body, a bit thin texture.
