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.

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 16, 2012
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a very white head. The aroma has notes of lemons, straw, yeast, and cinnamon. The flavor is sweet with notes of fruits, malt, caramel, yeast, and alcohol, leading to a dry and fruity finish.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2013 750 ml bottle. Slightly cloudy orange body with a big off-white head. Strong and nice aroma of caramel malt, fruit and spices with a hint of dry fruit. Flavour is sweet malty, fruity, spicy, light fruity acidity and some yeast. Well hidden alcohol, moderate bitterness, medium body and a nice, spicy, fruity aftertaste. A bit unusually, but nice and refreshing.

thewolf (11254) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 12, 2013
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel.
Pours clear orange with a small head. Aroma is vinoius, light cherrues, a bit of wet socks, honey, thyme and somewhat dusty. Medium carbonation, fine dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is better than the aroma. Fairly soft caramel malts, clear honey and light vinious. Well balanced with a light fruity tartness and varming alcohol. Quite elegant, really.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2011
Very fine & dense head with a faint pinkish sheen; orange-amberish beer with again a faint rosy/pink haze; textbook lace. Alcoholic, fruity (wild fruit, unripe raspberry, orangezeste), and greenery. Again unripe or wild, tart fruit. Faint artichoke-like flavour with some more pale malts and other grain. In a discreet way, vinous. Quite carbonated MF, some alcohol, but again discreet. Medium bodied at best, seems well-attenuated. Fine, but not really outstanding. Wheat is not obvious. I wonder what the Garrett Oliver connection might be. The Italian is too exotic for me.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk at the Danish Invasion extravaganza. Pale golden orange, thick white head fades to a frothy white rim. Nice wheaty zesty nose, cloves, touch of pepper tickling the nostrils, citrus hints. Similar flavours, touch of kiwi fruit, grapefruit bitterness, nice wheaty bubblegum hints, light grapefruit & kiwi bitter linger on the finish. Hides alcohol well, but a bit fizzy and a bit thin.
