COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Pours a hazy golden color. Aroma and taste are wheat, hints of fruit, and has a sweet finish.

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.

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

Good, complex Belgian beer. The citrus and ginger aroma; the apple and orange taste. Quite sour, very fresh.

Fris, maar niet te fris. Alsof je op de Oosterscheldekering staat in je adamskostuum, maar het is lekker 25 graden en er staat maar weinig wind. Gewoon genieten dus. Hoewel je natuurlijk beter in de kroeg had kunnen staan.

adasko (319) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Has a delicate fruity aroma, tiny notes of strawberry. It’s clear, golden color, with nice head and great lacing. In taste it’s a little bit sour and very very refreshing.

I had this at my sisters house. Pours gold with a white head. Taste fruity, belgian yeast, sweet. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
The Brugues ’city beer’ and a successful new start of this old brewery. Yellowish white, finely structured, sticky, dense and stable foam, colour a golden peach blonde, misty. Yeasty and fruity aroma of orange, green apple, peach, bread, caramel, ginger, straw, cardboard. Fruity, lightly malty taste, some green apple, bit grainy, bit yeasty, finishing in a short but balancing hop bitterishness. Almost like a lighter version of Duvel. Certainly not the worst of these middle strength Belgian blondes suitable for tourists in outdoors cafés.

330 ml bottle from A Taste of Belgium Restaurant in Palm Beach, Aruba. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Slightly yeasty nose has a slight tropical fruit note. Upfront, flavor is tart earthy malt with more yeasty notes. Complex malt character. Dry bitter finish. Very tasty.
