COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously brewed at Anders

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.

bonkiedeaap (657) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2016
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is amber colored and has a large and stable white foam, with lots of carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity, with notes of citrus, yeast and grass and fruitiness of appricots, grapefruits and other tropical fruits. Also a hint of wood is noticable. The taste is light sweet and fruity, with notes from the aroma and changes into a pleasant bitterness with fresh hops and some yeast notes. The finish is bitter and dry, and is long noticable. Very good brew.

johndoughty (5100) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2016
Bottle. Massive head on pouring that was very slow to dissipate..Brown appearance and slightly sour. Medium body but I found the taste a bit off putting.

Grzesiek79 (4096) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Many thanks for this beer to JefVerstraete. Piekna piana jak u Belga, metnosc spora, przepieknie pachnie swiezym ananasem morelka i mirabelka. W smaku te same owoce oraz sycylijska cytryna dochodzi i limonka. Fajne jak na belgie porzadny chmielowy kop. Wytrawne gozkie i bardzo aromatyczne piw, w dodtatki malo alkoholu jak na Belgie. Na koniec przeslanie: Lemmy will by glad.

jc1762 (964) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Thanks to the kind folks at Comme la Gueuze for the bottle! Poured into a sifter showing barely any carbonation with moderately filtered brown. The nose shows a lot of sweet Belgian yeast. The palate is very lightly carbonated and light bodied. Flavors of moderately intense Belgian influence and lightly sweet caramel malts. Nice and simple.

Bottled 330ml (PETA6)
Hazy orange-amber color, good cloudy off-white head, lace. Riped fruits and bretta in the nose. A bit dry cardboardish. Medium-bodied. Bretta, funkyness, spicey and fruity flavor. Bretta overrides American hops. Ok.

Swaroga (2130) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 16, 2016
33cl bottle. Amber/red in colour with small head. The beer has an aroma of honey, cooked dark fruits, dried plums and some raisins. Some roots and cake. Very little carbonation and oily in mouth. The beer is medium sweet with notes of honey, cake and spices. A very delicate fruity sourness and a spicy finish. Some warming alcohol too. The beer has a strong honey profile overall, it has very little to do with Orval but it is still delicious in its own way.

lio88 (9) - ATH, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2016 does not count
Very nice amber colour, little hazy. White foam disappearing fast. Smell of fruits and yeast. Taste is very dry, slightly acid and decently bitter but after taste is a little harsh. Bretts note very present. Might need some additional ageing. Probably inspired by Orval but no so well balanced.
