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.

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.

Bière belge dégustée à Hannover en Allemagne. Goût similaire à une bière blanche. Excellente avec un nez fruité de zeste de citron.

Iphonephan (3529) - McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2014
From a 33 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a clear gold with a massively thick off white head. Somehat funky nose. Flavors of bublegum. Smooth and silky mouthfeel. Decent.

CapFlu (4588) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
Lasting frothy white head atop a sediment-filled brownish amber body. Yeasty nose with coriander. Pretty zesty flavour with a citrus base. Rather straight-forward Belgian Ale. It becomes more plump and fruity as it warms.

330ml bottle served in a tulip glass. Re-reviewed @ 2012.11.24. A: Pours a clear golden yellow to orange color forming a big bubbled and aired white head. Good retention and some spotty lacings formed and left in the glass S: Sweet and spicy in the nose. Candy sugar, cinnamon, cloves, orange zest, honey and flowery hops. Bready yeasts which are quite Belgian style T: Taste follows the nose: Sweet and bready upfront. Quite malty. Notes of candy sugar, honey, cinnamon, pepper, cloves, orange zest followed by earthy Belgian yeasts and some flowery hops M: Light to medium body. A little bit molasses. Good balanced bittersweet aftertaste O: Easy drinking beer which is, at the same time, quite complex. A classic Belgian Ale. Strongly recommended --- OLD REVIEW (on-tap): 330ml own tulip served from the tap at the Amsterdam airport. A: Pours a clear yellow to orange color with a big fluffy white head. Medium retention. No lacings S: Quite spicy to a lager Beer. Candy, honey and flowery hops T: Taste follows the nose. Not bad. Quite refreshing. Yeasts are also very much noticed M: Light to medium body. Good bitterness. Again, refreshing O: Good beer. Recommended [ BA Review @ 4/21/2011 ]
