Imperial Pilser" realizzata con Sam Calagione del birrificio Dogfish Head (USA). Pils, Carapils, Simcoe, Warior, Saaz <nt>
Una delle poche incursioni nel mondo della bassa fermentazione made in Borgorose, è il frutto della collaborazione tra Leonardo e Sam Calagione di Dogfishead. Ognuno dei due birrai ha messo del proprio in questa birra, scegliendo a turno il tipo di luppolo da aggiungere pugno a pugno in un dry hopping lungo 60 minuti, tra Simcoe, Warrior e Saaz. Più alcolica e corposa rispetto alle classiche Pils, sorprende per la sua intensità rivelandosi esplosiva ma equilibrata. Una bionda “tosta” di cui vi innamorerete, proprio come la protagonista del romanzo di WillaCather da cui prende il nome.

Countbeer (5997) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle: Medium sized, airy and bit fluffy white head changes with regular speed into a unequal spread hilly islad lacings on top of a beautiful equally hazy layered darker yellow fluor orange colored beer. Smell nice hoppy bouquet: hop, flowers, lemon, citrus, soap, hint of nettle, herbs, sweat and swimming pool. Flavours are a nice mix of hops, bitter, citrus, flowers, flowers, some malts, creamy, floral bitter and creamy herby. Aftertaste is bitter, hops, malts, light spicy hint of flowers and herbs. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium to fuller body and a creamy texture. Quite a nice beer, hoppy and tasty!

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with frothy white head. Aromas of grassy and floral hops, citrus, sweet malts, and some spices. Flavors of light spices mixed in with a little sweat malts, nice amount of grassy and floral hops, bit of a caramel and fruit. Finishes dry and with some hop bitterness. Kind of a hybrid between a IPA and pilsner. Pretty solid.

Big sweet flavor with grass, light pee, big melon and pineapple. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly sticky finish, somewhat resinous, with lots of sugar, straw and tropical fruits. Nice.

Gutifa (135) - Eisenharz, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2013
Yellow/orange color with a good white head. Floral hoppy aroma with a good base of malts. More body than in a normal pils. Good drinkability and perfect combination between the malts and floral hops. Impossible to guess the more than 7% of alcohol. Dry finish.

Butters (4039) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Thanks to brother Austin! pours a hazy golden straw dull with fair white head. Very sweet and honeysuckle and lavendar and the hops are well melded together. It does have a quality like other ’italian’ beers that I’ve had before. Not sure what that is. Maybe the water? But this is one of the best imperial pils i’ve had.

ben4321 (5642) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Location: 37.5 cl bottle from Sparrow, 1/10/13

Aroma: It has a good amount of tropical fruit: peach, grapefruit, etc., with clean malts and other hops
Appearance: It pours a hazy orange color with a huge, milky head, and tons of sticky lace
Flavor: The taste is on the hoppy side as well, with a tropical sweetness, and a mid-plus hop feel
Palate: The body is on the full side, with a rich, creamy feel, average carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I decided to drink this one back-to-back with the Dogfish version, and I was even more impressed by this one. I has a really nice hop feel to it. Really well done. It’s almost hard to believe that this is a Pils, it’s got an almost IPA-level of hops.
