REVIEW – Brugse Zot
BEER NAME: Brugse Zot
BEER STYLE: Blonde Ale
BREWERY: De Halve Maan Family Brewery, Since 1856
REGION: Bruges, Belguim
INGREDIENTS: Malt, hops, water and yeast
BREWER’S NOTES: Brugse Zot is a delicious blonde beer, brewed according to a unique and traditional recipe. The beer is brewed with four different kinds of malt and two aromatic varieties of hop which give it its inimitable taste. The refermentation in the bottle creates a longer natural preservability.
- APPEARANCE: Rich golden colour with large, lingering, white, creamy head.
- AROMA: Fruity notes of banana and pear and citrus, hint of candifloss and lightly toasted malt with an added spiciness
- FLAVOUR: Sweet & Spicy flavours with subtle malt notes and a slight bitter ending
- MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied, with good carbonation and a dry finish
- OVERALL: Fun, playfull, easy drinking blonde ale steeped in history and well balanced in flavour.
- PAIR WITH: When in Bruges do as the Brugse Zotten (people from Bruges or Bruges fools) do and pair this with waffels
