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.

Patrickctenchi (3569) - 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.

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.

Starts with a big head.... but then.. gone is the foam. Nice amberbeer! Hoppy, great balance of spices and nice to have some good american (?) hopflavours in an amber beer!

ForlornHope (36) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
33 CL bottle. Pours nicely, large white head quickly diminishing. Slightly sour aroma but correctly placed ( ie intentional ). Lovely amber-orange colour. Taste is slightly sweet to start but soon becomes bitter with a flowery, orange background. Medium palate with a long, dry, bitter finish. Overall a fine beer. I have seen this described as an Orval clone and that is not far off. Shame I only have one bottle - I quite like this and would have another.

Bière ambrée de 6,5 % abv et un niveau EBU de 44. Elle est brassée chez Anders sur une recette de Het Nest. Couleur ambre clair d’une grande pureté. Bulles par milliers très fines en fontaine. Mousse blanche très épaisse et qui tient assez bien. Arômes de pelure d’orange, coriandre, houblon fleuri, fleurs blanches, pamplemousse rose, et une pointe de curaçao. 1ère bouche soyeuse avec une belle prise fleurie, puis du malt et houblon. Arrière-bouche agréable, douce et fraîche. 2ème toujours très fleurie, mais équilibrée malt/houblon. 3ème avec fleurs (bien sûr), et une légère touche de tabac blond. Arrière-bouche avec des agrumes et une pointe d’épices. La longueur est bien équilibrée dans le fond, avec cette touche spéciale toujours. Fraîcheur, parfum, douceur sont les maîtres-mots. La levure est complexe, d’une très belle composition, élégante. L’alcool est bien pour le genre, quoique un peu juste. Dans la finale, le mérite se perd quelque peu avec le temps … CONCLUSION : une bière qui a de très belles qualités, mais sa touche originale s’affaiblit dans la finale. D’autre part, je la verrais plutôt sur un tempo abv de 7,5, parce que le soutien est ici un peu à la peine... Quant à l’interprétation de l’Orval dont parle le brasseur, je trouve que cette bière est bien trop fleurie pour prétendre à une quelconque comparaison avec la trappiste.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle as rail soda, courtesy of deanso. Pours a hazy amber beer with a massive white head on top. Very firm head. Aroma is rather yeasty, bready and even has some tarty touches to it. Flavor is quite bitter, cookie, earthy and a bit messy. Too much yeast in there to be honest. Quite decent.
