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.

Mi è piaciuta. La trovo originale e ben fatta. Bello il colore rosa arancio. Al naso si sentono i frutti selvatici utilizzati ed una acidità che fa pensare ad una lambic. In bocca attacco dolce, poi secca ed acida, comunque il tutto ben equilibrato; nasconde benissimo i 10 gradi.

Flavor is wheat, dough, sl.ight toast, then yeasty dough, wheat malts, grass, leather, earth bread, tart under-ripe cherries, gooseberries, slight lemon zest and a refreshing slight tartness and med high carbonation make it quite refreshing for such a high abv beer. Really good!

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2011
75cl bottle. Quite a special one here. Pours a bright orange color with an abundant creamy white head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is on the sweet side with a ’predominance of caramel notes and fruits. Peaches and rad brries in the nose with molasses and caramel. Taste is sweet again with a slight tartness in the back. Burnt sugar, fruits and some yeast. Slight alcohol burn too. Full mouthfeel and good amount of carbonation. Overall, very interesting, also if the wheat character is not up front and the fruits could be pushed further to me.
