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.

Bottled in take One maastricht. Dark amber color with hardly any lacing, Quickly diminishing beige head. Aroma is sweat and yeasty. Flavor is overly sweet. Low carbonation made me think it was expired but it was just a badly composed beer

oh6gdx (20003) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2006
Bottled. Reddish amber colour with mediumsized bubbly head, which quickly goes into a smallsized beige, longlasting one. Aroma is roasted malts, sour fruits with marzipan and a slight sticky alcoholic tone. Flavour is caramelly, malty, slightly metallic and ryeish. Watery palate, and quite "bulk feeling". Very boring.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2006
(Bottled) Clear, deep reddish amber color with a small, but lasting head. Very toffee-caramely, slightly roasted-malty, sourish aroma with rye and marzipan hints. Sour-sweet, caramely-malty flavor with an ashy, mildly bitter and acidic finish. Caramel and grainy rye malts in the aftertaste. No signs of alcohol. Light to medium-bodied, a bit thin, ashy and quite low- but foamy-carbonated palate. Boring is the keyword here.
