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.

mR_fr0g (7265) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell 10/9/2015. Many thanks to Kenny for this one. Translucent yellow / straw coloured pour with a lasting thin white head . Aroma is solvent alcohol, with apple, grape and apricot fruits. Flavour is composed of Belgian yeast, woody, tart apple, apricot and grains. Palate is grainy, spicy and highish carbonation, tangy grape. Not a huge fan of this.

Leighton (16286) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2015
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co, Clekenwell - London. Many thanks to Kenny. Pours unclear pinkish gold with a foamy white cap. The nose holds doughy pale bread, citrus, herbs. Medium sweet flavour with light alcohol bump, lemon rind, bitter grass, more herbal notes. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with notes of crusty bread, grains and citrus fruits. Interesting. OK.

Theydon_Bois (15029) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle split at CBC Clerko, thanks to Kenny, 10/09/15. Hazed orange topped with a decent off white swirl. Nose is straw, light puke, pink berry, floral notes. Taste comprises bitter fruit, farmy, light wood, faint citric peel, hay. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok ... hides the ABV well but on the other hand doesn’t deliver a lot on said ABV.

Craft Clerkenwell Bottle Share. Hazy pink tinted gold beer, big fluffy pale peach colour head. Palate is light with modest fine carbonation. Sweet floralness. Mild spice. Sweet floral generic fruits. More floralness and spice. Light finish. Hides the abv very well but was expecting something more coherent than this.

Scopey (10705) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle thanks to Kenny. It pours murky hazy rose with a decent off-white head. The nose is soft, juicy, floral/hibiscus, light jam, bubblegum, light plastic and Welch’s grape juice. The taste is crisp, bitter, toasty, light spice, hibiscus, sweet, juicy, grape skin and rhubarb. Medium + body and highish carbonation. A touch restrained overall, but enjoyable nonetheless. Hides abv pretty well also.

The_Osprey (4893) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle share at CBC Clerkenwell, many thanks to Ken. 10%. Hazy peachy orange, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is varnish, white spirit, grape juice and rhubarb. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is varnish, glue, rhubarb tart. Quite strange. Not sure what they were aiming for, but whatever it was I think they missed. Still, it’s not bad.

SkillsFactory (373) - 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.

Sebilinz (1372) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle. Golden body with white head. Aroma is fruity with hints of honey and sourness. Taste is also very fruity with hints of yeast and also some honey and some dryness. Aftertaste is dry and refreshing. Nice one.

zacgillbanks (3778) - 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.
