In 2005 Xavier Vanneste, son of Mrs Vronique 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"

Rune (11640) - Troms, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2010
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Bestillingsutvalget. Unclear golden. Two finger off-white head with a solid stand and leaving spotty lacing on the glass. Spiced fruity to the nose. Sweet plums and ripe apples to the taste buds along with a touch of yeasty fruitness. Relatively short aftertaste. Easy to drink. So-so (Troms, 28.10.2010).

Finn (6824) - Troms, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2010
Flaske 0,33l fra bestillingsutvalget til Vinmonopolet. Gyldenbrun. Litt uklar. Hyt luftig skum som detter litt. Forsiktig krydret aroma. Smaken avrundet med innslag av malt & frukt & krydder. Avslutter syrlig bittert. Litt mye kullsyre. KI=6.

Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Light golden pour from bottle. Thin head. Aroma is slightly fruity with a touch of hops. Taste is hops, grain and some mild citrus. Watery body. Just not much here given the price. In a word - disappointing.

On tap and in bottle at the brewery in Bruge; overall an OK beer. I didnt see why all the awards. It was quite carbonated for my liking. Overall a good beer but nothing special

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2010
Blond beer with a white head. Malty sweet aroma and taste. Fruity, sweet, no hopps and above all as boring as a Leffe. I dont understand why this beer has become so popular.

What a change from all these pilseners Ive been having. A strong aroma, but a dose of paint. The flavor is not as spicy as the aroma. A little sugar, plenty of malt. Very cloudy with tons of chunks. A decent beer.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 Had at the Halve Maan or however it is spelled in Brugge. Seemed OK, I would need to try again but it just doesnt grab you. Serving: Tap

Poured a bright gold color, lots of tiny bubbles, with a white head that lasts. Aroma is a strong pilsner-like malt, grassy hops, and typical Belgian yeast. Well-balanced flavor. Mild sweetness with low bitterness. Excellent carbonation, drinkable, a real thirst quencher. I could drink this all day long.

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are malt, yeast, fruits and hops.

olsvammel (6601) - rebro, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2010
On tap at the Lowlander in London. It poured a hazy yellow liquid with a small white head. Flavour of yeast, apples, pears and other fruits. Semi smooth mouthfeel, light-medium body and high carbonation. A decent blonde that lacked some taste and the balance was slightly off. The bitterness was a bit to strong and the fruity sweetness couldnt quite match it.
