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"

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.

Heidbummer (167) - SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours hazy gold with thick white head. Yeast and banana nose. A bit thin for the abv, slightly cloying. Not too much banana on the taste, mostly yeast. I’ve had this on draught at the brewery and it was lighter, more floral and way more refreshing. It’s OK in bottle but it’s lost quite a bit of it’s freshness unfortunately.

Fules (628) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 14, 2016
Hatalmas, tartós hab, borostyán szín. Kissé édeskés, fűszeres illat. Édeskés-savanykás, fűszeres, komlós ízvilág. Közepes test, sok szénsav, enyhe keserű. Valahogy nem illik bele a savanyú. Nem jött be.

CzechTex (127) - - JUL 3, 2016
In a bottle. Pours with dense microbubbles, leaving doily lacing behind. Maybe not world class beer, but a reasonable option. Not sure why this is rated so badly....OK feel on the tongue, pleasant.

Gehbe (116) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 3, 2016
Big white-ish head, medium lacing, very clear. Aroma of fruit and spice: lemon, pepper, grapefruit, some light malt, caramel, clove, yeast, grass. Taste: light sourness with even lighter sweetness and bitterness upfront, light crisoy bitterness taking the top note towards finish. Fairly dry and crispy, high carbonation, some stickiness in aftertaste. Overall light and refreshing in both taste and aroma, nice in summer.
