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 cloudy golden amber with a thin yellowish head. The nose has tons of caramel malts and a light citrus fruit note. Sweet caramelized malts in the middle with a bit of citrus zest, light Belgian spice notes and a floral hop that adds a bit of bitterness to the finish. A easy going but boring Belgian brew.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy medium amber with a solid 1/2" off-white head, lace that slips back into the drink. Aroma of caramel malt. Taste is caramel malt that adds carbonation on the swallow, then turns only a little bit hoppy in the finish. A light version of a Belgian Ale, which is perfectly all right.

A very pleasant lager style Belgian beer with a bit of a kick. Refreshing to the palette with just enough of a hoppy taste.

Clear orange colored beer with a big white head. Smells Belgian yeast. Tastes like yeast, fruity and a nice bitterness. One of the best Belgian Ale.

On tap at restaurant in bruges. Pours clear fizzy and lager-like. Flavor is crisp balanced, but a bit too malty and lacking in depth ok, nothing special for this category in this category.
