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.

VueltaBirrista (15) - Murcia, SPAIN - OCT 21, 2016
De aspecto dorado pálido y acompañada de una verdadera orgía de espuma blanca. Aroma a cereal y lúpulo, sobre todo hierba y cítrico. En boca es deliciosa, muy suave y agradable. Recorre varias fases, el dulzor de la malta, cítrico y lo que se me antojó manzanilla para terminar en un amargo muy personal (76 respetables IBUS) que para nada se hace desagradable. Su carga alcohólica tampoco se hace evidente en ningún momento. Entra como el agua.

Looks like a (little hazy) pils with a rich white head. The aroma is typical of a IPA, hoppy and full of grepefruit, a little spiced too. In mouth is full bodied, sweet and malty with a nice bitter end. Despite the alcoholic content, the mid-low carbonation and the perfect balance between sweet and bitter make this a very drinkable and great beer.

Bottle 0.33l sample at Samo Pivo Belgrade, Serbia. 20.07.2016. Small tasting with Ogi and Vlada. Pour it hazy golden color with small white head. Aroma sweet caramel with yeasty twist. Taste sweet caramel, peach, apricot, pretty much yeasty smooth texture, nice balanced for this kind of style, medium body, creamy, lively, sweet finish.
