Editor’s note: Brewed by Djævlebryg at Brøckhouse, Hillerød, Denmark.

Brewers note: This beer is NOT brewed as an American Pale Ale. It is not brewed to suit a certain style which is why we call it a "hoppy ale".

English: Both the British and Americans are good at using hops - in slightly different ways. We have combined the best from both traditions and created Schopenhauers Vilje ("Schopenhauer’s Will"), a beautiful amber coloured ale with a floral character, caramel notes and - like the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer - a good portion of bitterness. This brew can be enjoyed on a hot summer’s day, a cool evening or accompanied by e.g. poultry dishes.

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 13, 2008
courtesy of Laurent Mousson - a bit nervous at the opening, foaming out of the bottle; hazy red-orange colour under a huge pale beige foam; fairly hoppy nose showing some cream, almonds and lichies; solid malt backbone, slightly oily; a reasonable bitterness introduces a long creamy and fruity quite soft aftertaste

JorisPPattyn (9505) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2008
Amber-copper beer; good but vanishing cream-coloured head. Beautiful grapefruit nose, sucade as well; well-balanced. Soft bittersweet taste, again sucade or preserved orange. Very slick MF, bit sticky. Very good, hoppy, and yet balanced ale.

FatPhil (14021) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 20, 2008
500ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Deep copper, small creamy head. Sweet fruity hops on the nose. Quite lively on the tongue, needs a bit of a swirl. Decent sweet malts, prominent bitter hops, some soapiness. Leaves a tingly hoppy and slightly soapy finish. Good to the bottom of the glass, but leaves me a bit sticky and needing a drink.

Pinball (11939) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2008
best before 23.05.08. nice aroma at first (hoppy) but then i got some aged beer below that.. being that it’s not exactly fresh, it could be expected. looks great. clear dar yellow and a giant lasting vanilla-white head with small bubbles. flavor : hoppy hoppy bitter. yummy. a little watery but in a very refreshing way. bitterness is aslo a little sweet (caramel+something good i don’t know how to describe) aftertaste lasts forever. beneath the bitterness i get some fruit.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008
A hoppy ale with a fresh taste. The palate is gentle and the flavor is bitter, a tad edgy and energy giving. Maybe not spectacular, but my favorite of the Djævlebryg.
