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.

25 cL bottle, thanks to MiP. Pours golden amber with a lacing off-white head. Light spiced and caramel malty aroma. Flavour light fruity (dried to overripe), and light yeasty. Somewhat oxidised, yet not to dominantly. Ends with a light fruity note and no real bitterness.
