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"

olsvammel (7225) - Örebro, 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 couldn’t quite match it.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-straw color with lots of floaties. Nice rocky white head with moderate retention and lacing. Typical Belgian aroma of banana, clove, bread and yeast. Flavor is Belgian yeast, grain and honey. Moderate alcohol burn and slightly dry finish. Drinkable, but far from the top for the style.

downender (8659) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2010
On tap at Lowlander, London WC2. Golden with a slight white head. A Sweet Belgian ale with a herbal edge, mandarin notes and touch of floral hop. Fine.

I drank so much of this in Bruges. Lovely blond. Yeasty breadiness, a little spice and grass. Pours hazy blond/orange, pillowy white head. Very drinkable.

ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2010
Pours a hazy orange-brown body with a thin, bubbly and quickly disappearing near-transparent head. Some sediment roaming around in my Trappist chalice. Looks interesting. Nose is light, with hints of yeast and banana being principal elements. Taste is also very light and refreshing; this is highly drinkable. Banana, yeast, citrus, molasses and hints of chewing gum. Kinda sweet, but not too much. A nice little Belgian Ale, not very memorable but very pleasant nonetheless.

Sigmund (7487) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2010
330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 6%. Pale golden colour, slightly hazy, huge and long lasting white head. Pleasant aroma of Belgian ale yeast with distinct spicy and some fruity notes. The flavour is fairly crisp and moderately spicy, yeasty notes, not very sweet. Moderate hops.

stouby (4666) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2010
Draught at Den Tatoverede Enke, as Zot Brune. Light hazy brown. Flavor moderate malty (caramel, brown sugar) and hoppy. Flavor moderate sweet and bitter. Light body. Nothing to remember.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Clear yellow with a good frothy head. Aroma is just slightly of light fruit such as pear. Taste is a bit spicy and light and a bit of bitterness with the finish. I drinkable beer, but nothing stands it apart from many others.
