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, č 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. Piů alcolica e corposa rispetto alle classiche Pils, sorprende per la sua intensitŕ rivelandosi esplosiva ma equilibrata. Una bionda “tosta” di cui vi innamorerete, proprio come la protagonista del romanzo di WillaCather da cui prende il nome.

camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Light citrus and fruit nose. Palate follows suit. Lots of nice carbonation going On. Pilsner im not sure because hops seem pretty high. Very well done and unique.

fenouil (18) - courbevoie, FRANCE - MAY 19, 2016
Trčs originale bičre italienne qui surprend au nez par la complexité de ses arômes. Un nez puissant d’agrumes, pamplemousse, citron, mais aussi une dominante d’épices, d’herbes séchés. Vraiment original ! La bouche est ample avec une magnifique amertume qui invite ŕ la dégustation. La finale suit dans le męme style : agrumes et herbes séchés. Trčs surprenante : une belle personnalité.

davidezdonz (228) - , HONG KONG - MAY 15, 2016
A 330ml bottle with a best before date of October 2016 and poured into a Mikkeller pint glass. It poured a hazy golden orange colour with a two finger slightly off white head that had great retention and left thick sticky lacing. Aromas of citrus lemon and orange, some pineapple and a hint of grass and herbs. Tastes of sweet honey, lemon and orange with a hint of grapefruit and herbal bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall this was a great and refreshing Pilsner. Aromas were a bit weak but it looks and tastes good.

luiggiggi (4) - ITALY - MAY 14, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2016 Ottima pilsener, si presenta con un bel colore giallo pallido, una schiuma compatta che lascia un buon lacing ed un profumo erbaceo penetrante. In bocca apre il luppolo, seguito da note fruttate e chiude sempre l?erbaceo che lascia un buon finale. Corpo leggero, bassa carbonazione. Provata alla spina presso birreria Gino

Lele (356) - Padova, ITALY - MAY 12, 2016
Birra veramente molto buona e ben fatta. Colore giallo un po’ torbido, con bella schiuma. Al naso sentori un po’ caramellati, ma soprattutto fruttati e un po’ erbacei. In bocca č sensuale. Fruttata, soprattutto melone, ma anche speziata e un po’ di caramello, con un finale sull’erbaceo, tendente all’amaro ma assolutamente non troppo. Ottimo lavoro!

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Fules (327) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 2, 2016
Közepes, nagyon tartós hab, homályos világos borostyán szín. Citrusos, komlós illat. Komoly keserű, édes, citrusos - trópusi gyümölcsös beütéssel, picike gyantával. Igazi ízorgia. Utóíze a korty folytatása és sokáig tart. Testes sör.
