COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schuppenaas (Ace of Spades) is our fourth beer named after playing cards. For this beer we are obviously inspired by the great "Orval". We use a different yeast for the first fermentation but like Orval the second yeast strain is a Brett. For Hops we chose this time for Tomahawk and Simcoe. Additional Simcoe is added as dry-hopping.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2014
Interesting ’wild ale’ with thick and stable, cream white head and misty orange blonde robe. Aroma reveals dry-hopping, pine needles, peach, leathery Brett, apple peel, rose petals, dried orange. Crisp fruity onset with refreshing citrus touch, flowery, smooth with honeyish malt sweet accent, long hop bitter finish with bone dry Brett effect. Acceptable as a tribute to Orval, I guess.

Sten (674) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - NOV 10, 2014
Amber coloured beer with a huge, fluffy white head. The aroma is fresh, hoppy and has soms hints of citrus. Fresh and hoppy taste, very lively with alot of carbonation and a bitter aftertaste. (Bottle 33cl)

thanatosti (970) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Hazy amber with a big lacing white head. Fruity hoppy aroma with some Brettanomyces. Taste and aroma really reminds of Orval although the Schuppenaas is a bit sweeter.

Mainuh_man (238) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge, rocky white head that leaves tons of lacing. Aromas are lots of citrusy and floral hops, and some sour aromas (almost like sweet tarts). Flavor is dominated by hops: lots of citrus. Nice bready malt character coming through, then transitions to sour notes along with some soy sauce, but still, lots of hop flavor. Finishes with lots of herby hops that linger for a long time, a bit ascerbic (popperings?). Medium-light body with a slick mouthfeel and active carbonation. Overall, nice hop aromas, mild malt, so not that well-balanced, and overly carbonated, but still, quite tasty.

DutchDrebus (4288) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle @ home. I expected a black beer, but it’s actually amber with a fairly chunky and large white head. Smells slightly leathery, horseblanket, some malts, brett. Tastes malty, sweetish, some brett, quite fresh. It’s a decent beer that I’ll probably never drink again. Medium body, active carbo but not bothering me.

Pyrmir (3529) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2014
330 ml bottle. Amber with beige head. Aroma of malt, biscuit, chlorine and some spice. Taste is spicy, rye, malt, bread and some light dried fruit notes. Interesting

Excalibur123 (184) - Soria, SPAIN - SEP 23, 2014
Vierte color amarillo oro con buena cabeza de espuma que se mantiene largo tiempo en la copa; aromas a levadura, lúpulo, galleta y miel; en boca entrada potente con amargor medio; buen cuerpo y carbónico moderado, pos gusto algo amargo y seco, buena cerveza que se bebe bien aunque sin ser compleja al final se hace un tanto pesada.

Borresteijn (4915) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014
33cl Bottle from Prik&Tik Pauwels. As SchuppenAas. Slightly hazy orange-amber colour, white head. Aroma of a bit of Brettanomyces, yeast, citrus, light floral, almost salty. Flavour is citrus, light Brett character, light salty and yeasty, light floral, firm bitter finish. Light-bodied. Hard to describe, but nice. Could use more Brett.
