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.

daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Another from my notes of my first order from Belgianshop.com. I found this one to be odd, but a bit underrated on this site. Amber color wtih a decent sized head. Aromas are malty and dried fruits, and something odd...not sure what. Flavors were malty and sweet wtih a slight bit of tartness. No hops to speak of. Pretty decent, but not world class at all.

bhensonb (15858) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Bottle at Cambrinus in Brugge. Light aroma of cooked dark fruits - aka raisins. Dark amber color with a fine beige head. Less than medium body. Fine carbonation. It’s a great flow of light caramel and floral/herbal hop. It’s balanced. It goes with spicey food. It finishes well. Truly sessionable (except for the ABV).

3.2
jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2008
[email protected] Very strange aroma. Is it malt? Don’t know. It’s sweet and sourish, raisin, figues and?. Dark amber color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, caramel malts, light herbal bitterness, hint of raisin. Sticky mouthfeel. Better than expected.

MiP (15981) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2008
Bottle, 6.5%. Clear brown colour. Very small head. The flavour is malty, slightly sugary, sourish.

yespr (48165) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2008
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.

2.7
SilkTork (5885) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2008
250ml bottle from Bier Tempel, Brussels. Sweet, jammy, brown malt, licorice, raisins, cardboard, marmite and dog shit. Aroma of twiglets. Thin, dryish, blood tinged finish. An OK beer.

3.3
DruncanVeasey (8326) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2008
De Zolder, Brugge, New Year’s Eve. Clear red and thinly headed. Chewy, waxy, prune-sodden aroma. Flavour srtaightforwardly malty, with lots of chewy dark fruit. Didn’t strike me as overly sweet at all. Simple but good.

2.1
ha1ag (952) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2007
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
