COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Riserva Speciale nasce dall’alchimia tra l’estro poetico e visionario di Tonino Guerra, grande sceneggiatore e poeta, che ne ha curato l’etichetta e la maestria tecnica del brewmaster più famoso degli Stati Uniti, Garrett Oliver, creatore delle birre Brooklyn Brewery.

Birra dall’aspetto velato con un colore che ricorda l’albicocca arricchito da riflessi rosati. Garrett Oliver racconta che nella preparazione: «ho impiegato la purissima Acqua proveniente dalla sorgente di proprietà di Birra Amarcord, Malto d’Orzo e Luppolo, Miele d’Acacia e Millefiori, la Visciola che è una ciliegia selvatica tipica di questa zona e il Prugnolo, un altro frutto che nasce spontaneo in questo territorio». Il risultato è una birra elegante, che matura almeno nove mesi prima di essere pronta e che ha una naturale longevità. Una birra complessa e raffinata, un mosaico di ingredienti nobilitati dall’uso di Lieviti dello Champagne, una birra che ha molte e interessanti possibilità di abbinamento con la cucina della tradizione e con quella più creativa.

Rifermentata in bottiglia con Lieviti di Champagne che le conferiscono un perlage fine ed elegante, tipico dei vini più pregiati.

Abbinamenti consigliati
Il carattere unico di Amarcord Riserva Speciale la rende perfetta per il formaggio pecorino, il paté, i piatti di anatra, maiale e coniglio ma anche per le ostriche e i pesci, oppure semplicemente come aperitivo per occasioni da non dimenticare.

Note: Brewed with acacia and wildflower honey, Visciola wild sour cherry and blackthorn. Refermented in the bottle with Champagne yeast.

SkillsFactory (150) - ITALY - JUN 27, 2015
Arancio opalescente con riflessi rosati, schiuma bianca eccezionalmente persistente vista l'alta gradazione alcolica. Aroma di lievito da champagne, miele, leggera banana matura. Al palato stesse caratteristiche, in un secondo momento si sentono chiaramente le visciole ed il miele, sul finale bella nota di frumento. Corpo leggero, molto carbonata. Molto elegante e delicata.

la_monica (7) - ITALY - MAY 12, 2015 does not count
colore eccezionale (rosa/arancio opalescente), schiuma pannosa e molto persistente. profumi di lievito, note di frutta acidula (appunto usate per la produzione), e a temperature leggermente più alte di quella di servizio effluvio di miele. sensazioni riscontrate anche al palato: la nota acida della frutta, la sapidità del lievito in sospensione, il calore e la morbidezza del miele.

zacgillbanks (3102) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2015
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A hazy yellow coloured beer that pours with a large foamy head. It has lemon, cherry and tart fruity flavours with a sweet zesty, warming floral fruity finish.

ClubGonzo (4623) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a cloudy orange body with a large creamy white head. Nose is complex notes of dark and red berries, syrup, raisins, white sugar, caramel and hints of straw and dusty grass. Taste is white sugar, raisins, plums, red berries, alcohol, straw and hints of candi sugar, honey and dry yeast tones. Medium to full body, high carbonation. Once again, an Italian experimental ale full of gusto and with little to no direction. Is this a mead, fruit beer or Belgian strong ale? Only an Italian would now. Or, at least, not me. Not horrible, just very strange and not too wonderful in any way.

Yozora (38) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle courtesy my gf, bought at a bottle shop in Copenhagen. Pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, spices, floral notes, honey, caramel, toffee with a hint of alcohol. Taste is toffee, cherries, almonds, honey, floral, spicy, yeasty, plums, bready malt with a well balanced bitterness. Medium body with a medium to high carbonation. Very different and interesting beer expected a more fruity beer from the description but got a more malt forward, belgian one with some floral hints. Not bad at all and very different from most offerings out there.
