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"

Bottle. Pours golden, good foamy head. Smells of malts, fruits and hops. Taste starts sweet, a good bit of bitter kicks in and finishes sweet-ish, more fruity and malts. Nice balance between sweet and hoppy bitter.

Beer is a hazy, light golden color. Head quickly dissipates to thick lacing. Aroma is apple sweetness. Flavor is sweet with a tangy or sour component, ultimately quenching. Similar tartness to a Flemish Red. From notes taken at Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan, June 7 2007.

Poured @the brewery, unfiltered. Hazy dark blonde. Nose is (pils) malty and hoppy. In the taste the hoppy bitterness dominates. I miss the balance of the old one where you note a little bit of coriander. Refreshing though.

330 ml bottle. Pours amber with huge head and lots of carbonation. Aromas of cooked malts, light coriander, and citrus. Flavors are similar with a light hoppy bitterness. Nice session ale for a hot day in Brugse.
