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.

Nevelig, oranje van kleur met een flinke, witte schuimkraag. Aroma van citrus, hop, alcohol, karamel. Kruidig. Smaak is medium zoet, medium tot flink bitter met dank aan de hop. Levendig co2, prettig mondgevoel, medium tot volle body.

VsXsV (1899) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2014
Sample at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2013. Hazy deep golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of earth, light noble hops, bread, biscuit, apples and brett. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of barnyard, bread, light noble hops and earth. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice but not that close to Orval.

Douberd (1719) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip. ABV 6.5% Deep orange copper colour on the body, with a huge slighty off-white head, froathy but with good retention, leaving irregular lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity, some brett, farm aromas, yeast. Taste is bitter from the very start, yeasty, fruity and with quite a bit of citrus. Medium thin body, carbonation on the high side. Overall a very pleasant surprise, aminly because I was expecting a boring amber ale and this is more of a nice saison.
