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"

Bottle. Damn skippy its unfiltered -- it looks like a snowglobe. Pours a hazy gold with a white, pillowy head. Nose is mostly non-descript; I cant say it smells like much except Belgian beer, which isnt inherently a bad thing. Its nutty and citrusy, but it doesnt have much of a base to it. Its all right, but it isnt great.

Nice Beligum ale. Had tried it at the brewery a few years ago, and the bottle brought back lots of memories.

Bottle. Pour is cloudy orange with loads of floaties and a frothy white head. Aroma is lightly spicy, light orange, and light honey. Flavor is also light orange, honey, and banana. Very effervescent. Fine.

Pint from Belgos. 1 finger head, clear, paler than other belgian beers ive tried. Smelled of belgian yeast. Tasted of slightly sour fruits with some wheat. Smooth mouthfull, easy to drink. Most sessionable belgian ale so far, not overly complex but good.

On tap at the brouwerij De Halve Maan in Brugge on 12-08-10 (3,30 euro). Slightly cloudy, amber color with thin light head. Crisp, clean taste, almost like a Pilsner. Kind of like Leffe, but lighter and less body. Much prefer their other beers, but solid.

great for a blond. I love Belgian beer though. Good flavor, clean crisp, easy drinking for Belgian, for a light beer drinker, u get a good flavor, good strength, tasty all around well crafted brew. I like it and my wife had 4 of them. Totally nice all in all, good price, try it

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2015 Enjoyed unfiltered two glasses at De Halve Maan brewery in Brugse. Slight citrus note. Appears a very beautiful and cloudy golden orange. Lightly sweet and medium bitter taste. the finish is refreshing and kept me wanting one more drink. Just delightful. Average carbonation and light body. Filtered for bottling because customers prefer it that way. Too bad. It is just perfectly beautiful unfiltered. If you can, take the brewer tour. The guide is incredibly passionate and knowledgeable.
