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"

Drank on tap at Kafe Belgie, Utrecht. Blond Belgian Ale with a nice colour and average size of head. It tasted a bit like a Belgian white instead of an Ale, due because of the citrus aroma and fresh taste. Will drink this again.

piwnepodroze (406) - POLAND - OCT 14, 2016
W ramach zwiedzania należy jeszcze zejść do eleganckiej restauracji i koniecznie spróbować sztandarowe lokalne piwo Brughse Zot - w wersji niefiltrowanej i niepasteryzowanej, która jest dostępna tylko tam. W takiej wersji to piwo jest jedyne w swoim rodzaju - doskonale pijalne, lekkie, smaczne i aromatyczne.

jbruner (4117) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Unfiltered version on tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy golden yellow with fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma of mild sweet maltiness and light Belgian yeast. Taste is more toward the esters with a hint of earth. Clean and easy, decent.

6bottlepack (196) - Devon, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2016
Keg at Samuel Jones Exeter. Pours clear gold with a one finger white head. Aroma is very saison like ,fresh bread,candy sugar & farm yard aromas with some spice. Taste good s more of the same fresh bread,candy sugar sweetness ,light caramel ,biscuit ,clean & refreshing. Light bodied & perfectly carbonated with a slight chewiness. There is a slight sourness to this beer which helps make it refreshing. The finish is slighly dry with fresh bread,candy sugar & caramel coming thru. A decent beer!

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.
