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.

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.

SlackerMads (2358) - DENMARK - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle. Label doesn’t mention blackthorn as the deScription here on RB does. Hazy orange with a small white head. Honey, grain, straw, candlewax. Medium/full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Seems pointless to me, but inoffensive and hides the alcohol well.

yngwie (15764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. A dense, white head sits on top of a lightly unclear, golden body. The aroma has a strange fruityness, in a quite nice way though. Meaty malts in the back. The flavor is mostly fruity, still with the same strange fruity touch found in the nose, as well as a little maltyness and a bitter touch. Full-bodied and quite dry. Some bitterness in the else fruity finish. Judging from the commercial deScription this beer definitely don’t comply with the German purity law, but that’s perfectly fine with me. I still don’t know if I think it was a well performed experiment, but it’s definitely far from bad, and the use of ingredients are certainly expected considering it’s an Italian brewery. 130208
