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"

This would make my perfect nama beer (Japanese draft beer). Very drinkable and tasty, but still very refreshing. Great beer, one of my favourites in this style.

Hana @ Halve Maan, Brugge. Suodattamaton versio. Kaatuu lasiin samean kullankeltaisena noin kahden sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu on hyvin mausteisen hiivainen, sitruunaa ja korianteriakin tuntuu. Maku on hyvin yrttisen mausteinen, sitruunainen ja pippurisen hiivainen. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen ja suht napakasti humaloitu. Laadukas belgiblonde, hyvin mausteinen ja sitruunainen tapaus. Näin suodattamattomana todella hyvä tyylissään.

the aroma is malty and fruity with hints of hay, candy, yeast, garden berries and grasses... smells like saison... the taste is malty and fruity with notes of flowers, lollipop, yeast and herbs... sweet, bitter and dry aftertaste...

Solides Belgian Ale der real belgian Version. Gras, Kräuter, belgische Hefe und die legendäre Malzsüße umgarnen sich, im nicht ganz zu kunstvollen Belgian Beer Gewitter. 0,25/?€ im CAFE DE KLIKSPAAN, Groningen.

I really like this but I don’t think my score really does it justice. Light fluffy with elements of sweet juicy banana. There’s a light juicy chewy quality that is really nice. This deserves way more than its paltry 56 score.

Ysok02 (999) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2016
Robe blonde, reflets ambrés, mousse peu persistante. Nez fruitée et levuré, pointe de houblon. Bouche à l’attaque fraîche, moins d’ampleur et de complexité que la précédente. Une blonde assez banale.

Bottle from Trembling Madness, York. Pours amber, fluffy white head. Quite sweet, banana bread, toffee - in fact a bit medicinal . Doesn’t linger on the pallet like other ales of this strength. Very drinkable but there are better Belgian beers out there

What to say. I didn’t find this belgian beer very belgian. Spicy but flat tadte. A little mouthfeel and too little aftertaste.

Tap@Halvemaan. Pours hazy golden with white head. Aroma is light malty and floral with some banana and koriander. Taste is malty with bread and biscuit, yet fruity with banana and koriander. Finish is quite balanced dry and malty.
