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"

Good balanced beer. Slightly fruity with a medium dry bitter hop in it with a light sweet finish. It’s uncommon that the sweetness breaks through a hoppy (dry) finish, it’s usually the other way around, but i kinda like it.

Osprey87 (1707) - WALES - SEP 19, 2014
Keg at Draft House. Dark yellow, hazy, slightly sparkling, small foamy off-white head … dense sparse lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty with light lemon, very light wheat. Must be some wheat in this. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is light wheat ester, some lager, light straw and butter.

Elwood (3176) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Serving: 750 ml. bottle. It pours a deep gold color with a tight white head. Nice mix of Belgian yeast aromas, light caramelized malt, candied citrus peel, and spice. Straight forward flavor profile. Citrus, yeast, and a light sweet flavor. Fairly high carbonation. Not bad.

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.

SPDickerman (954) - Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2014
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 (18) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2014
Fresh hop aroma. Orange with a wall sticking foam. Carbonation tickles the tongue. Gentle feel in the mouth, ladylike.

Dem0niac (3) - - AUG 24, 2014 does not count
Good, complex Belgian beer. The citrus and ginger aroma; the apple and orange taste. Quite sour, very fresh.

martijnniehof (15) - 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.
