COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dopo i lusinghieri successi ottenuti con le prime cinque birre, il birraio sardo Nicola Perra, si lancia in una nuova avventura “molto pazza” (Macca Meda, in lingua sarda) con una birra vicina ad una American Amber Ale, al tempo stesso forte e beverina, dal taglio “internazionale” per la presenza di ingredienti legati a paesi di grande tradizione, messi al servizio del nuovo emergente “Made in Italy” sinonimo di fantasia, creatività ed originalità. La Macca Meda, al naso ci regala una piacevole sensazione di freschezza seguita da imponenti note fruttate di uva bianca, arancia ed albicocca. Nel palato convivono in armonia l’agrumato, l’amaro e lo speziato che ci indirizzano verso un retrogusto esplosivo contraddistinto da ficcanti punte di pepato e da una netta astringenza. Artefice principale è il First Gold, un luppolo impiegato non di frequente, di origine inglese, coltivato in Belgio nella zona di Poperinge. Destinata, per complessità ed eclettismo, a ristoranti di alto livello, consiglio di provarla con carni dai sapori decisi come quella dell’anatra o dell’oca. Godibile anche in ambienti meno formali, con formaggi di media stagionatura. Lorenzo Dabove in arte Kuaska

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2012
Bottle from Pazzeria, Milan
Hazy light amber color with medium sized head. If you rally dig into the aroma, you may find some almonds (but also paper and alcohol). Correct body strength, modest malt flavor, with a very light touch of herbs; light residual sweetness; it has a correct bitterness. Not bad, but overall simple and rather boring.
Among the Belgians, sub-par.
