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.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 7, 2009
330 ml bottle from Belgium Beers, Antwerp. A thick greyish head resting on a golden brown colored body. Sugary aroma; grains, caramel and sweet bread. Very sweet-flavored with both a fruity and malty sweetness. Modest bitterness. Sticky texture. Dries up a bit in the finish. Three tads too sweet, not a favorite.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2009
Bottle, thx to OleR. It pours a golden color with some carbonation, and a big, creamy, off-white head. Some butterscotch on the nose, with caramel, some grains and a rather unpleasant sweetish, puke-like scent. Sweet, malty flavor with roasted malts and some butterscotch. Drier towards finish. Much much fruityness going on. Some hoppy bitterness. Dry, full-bodied. Quite bitter finish with plenty of residual sugars. A strange beer. The aroma isn’t interesting at all, but the flavor is quite all right. Can’t see me returning to this one. (090312)

Lubiere (13911) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2009
A dark amber ale with a thick light moka head. A light malty aroma with caramel and light fruity esters. In mouth, a Belgian vienna, a bit nutty, with light oxidation and hops. So-so. BB 26-06-10. Bottle at Smokeless Joes, March 23, 2009.

Sammy (12205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2009
Bottle at Smokeless Joe’s. Sour yeasty moldy aroma on a great big initial head (Lady, hold the residue or let me pour this myself). Expiry June 2010. Some fruitiness initial, but mouthfeel is unenjoyable, a great sour bite attack on themouth. Th malty finish is fine, but the mouth needs lots of time to recover. Not much taste there, but drinkable.

ogivlado (7824) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 5, 2008
Bottled(250ml). -Orange/amber coloured, creamy off-white head, lively carbonation, very sweet malty nose. Roasted malt, caramel and light spicy taste with sugary and mild vegetables notes. Slightly peppery fruity finish. Unbalanced beer.

3.2
diabel (1714) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2008
Bottle Hazy, amber-brown body. Off-white, creamy head. Lightly infected aroma (butterscotch, diacethyl (?)), fenols, malts (medium strong), wine, ... Quite badly balanced aroma. Moderately bitter, moderately sweet flavour. Flavour is ok, although the balance is not perfect, but that’s not really disturbing. Powdery dry mouthfeel.
