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"

danlo (1134) - Darlington, Durham, - NOV 17, 2012
330ml bottle from the Cheese & Wine Shop Darlington. Pours a slightly hazy light gold amber colour, bubbly white head and aroma is yeasty, malt, lemon, pear. Sharp initial bitterness with lemon rind taste, malty, bready and yeast notes, through to a residual dry sourish bitter finish. Nice, quite drinkable.

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

martijnniehof (13) - ISLE OF MAN - AUG 24, 2014
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 (267) - 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 (1294) - 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.

gripweed57 (641) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2014
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.

wimpyjoe (3763) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle @ Firehouse, Sowerby Bridge. Slightly hazy yellow-blond (mainly yellow) with a small frothy head. Has a nice light wheat aroma and a fair taste in this respect.

Bier met niet zoveel smaak aan. Ik vond het een teleurstelling. Net als de dubbel en de bock eigenlijk

It’s a good beer, nothing really special, just a good beer. Malty taste in the mouth and the aftertaste.

Helder donker goud, bijna witte kraag. Vrij fruitig en smaakvol, met wat gist en kruiden. Vrij droog met en lekker bittertje en goede carbonatie.
