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.

Excalibur123 (136) - 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.

Expected simple Belgian Pale Ale, but was pleasantly surprised by the mild, but noticeable, Brett character. Just enough to add some flavor and bitterness, but not enough to dominate. Reasonable malt backbone, and good bitterness. Easy to drink.

Patrickctenchi (3671) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy, orange-amber with a huge, beige head. Dark, spicy yeast aroma....fruit. Tart, earthy yeast flavours..caramel, citrus...grapefruit. Very busy and complex mix.....just doesn’t have any balance and doesn’t go anywhere in particular.... Plus, I wouldn’t place it anywhere near the amber ale category.

rdb84 (101) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy gold/amber color. Modest foam head. Strong yeast aroma, almost resembles oregano. Undertone of brown sugar, salty peanuts, condiment. Taste is sour and very (very!) bitter, resembles zucchini. Gentle undertone of citrus and pines. Large bitterness in the aftertaste. Interesting, but it will not turn into a regular for me.
