Bottle; Unfiltered.
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!

Bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head with some floaties. The aroma and flavor have doughy bready malts, mild sweetness, hay, light citrus and banana, yeast. Carbonated, thin, just ok.

Pretty typical Belgian Blond. Clean yeasty, lemony characters, lightly spicy, with some bitter hops in the finish. Touch of alcohol is noticed right at the end.

Bottle from Bottle Shop, Brugge. Golden in colour, some carbonation. Aroma is of lemon and yeasty fruit. Taste is of some caramel, citrus fruits and a touch of grain. Alcoholic burn is subtle but pleasant. Decent stuff.

2014.06 - ter plaatse in brouwerij de Halve Maan - bier is niet naar bottelarij vertrokken, maar wordt ter plaatse ongefilterd (en daardoor waarschijnlijk meer troebel dan de gebottelde versie) getapt - licht geel - neus : moutig - mond : moutig en lichtzoete nawee
