COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Flanders, "Ezel" {donkey} is a nickname given to specific people or even entire village communities. However, as the people of this area, the word "Ezel" symbolizes not so much stupidity, but patient and dogged perseverance, a perseverance that is quite conscious of its own quality. The same applies to this ale: brewed from raw materials of the highest quality, it has a mellow taste that shows a real personality.

The commissioned ’Ezel’ beers traditionally represent a series of witbiers, but this dark version was added in 2007. Thick, yellowish, creamy, dense head, colour a brownish copper, clear and transparent, warm autumn-like with lively sparkling. Pasteurized, ’cooked’ aroma with further impressions of walnuts, tea, mango, cookie dough, witlof, grassy hops, coriander, nutmeg, cloves and dried leaves. Neutral onset, dried fruits, mild carbonation, smooth and supple mouthfeel, caramelly and slightly nutty malt base, light spicy notes, some floral hops in the finish but insufficiently bitter to my taste and even a little bit cloying. Recently tasted from tap and that was significantly better, though still rather bland.
