COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

0,33l bottle from Merkur. My 400. rating. The bottle is an eyecatcher. The beer is a creamy, smooth, tasty, bittersweet delicacy. The high ABV is not noticeable. Perfectly balanced beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It seems more like an IPA an over-hops beer. Citrus notes are evident but the bitterness is not perturbing taste. Quite drinkable indeed.

Extreme pils, the masterpiece of the brewery. It was made with Dogfish. Taste: Hops, citrus, spices. The body is obviously low. Complex taste,with an amazing long end. Clearly underrated, compared with beeradvocate ratings.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2012
375mL bottle. ($7.99 / bottle.) Golden color, a touch of haze. Tall, foamy, white, frothy head. Leaves sexy lace all down the neck of the glass. Aroma of mixed berries. Scent is wine like, resembles a Pinot Gris. Flavor is sweet, fluid grains, light citrus effervescence, soft malts, gentle straw pils malts. Finishes with a straw character with grassy Saaz hops and a citrusy Simcoe presence. Delicate, elegant, and perfect in every way a beer could be. The most well made beer I’ve ever had. So soft and divine. Loads of fruit without fruit being used. Amazing. (3251)

Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy. Great imperial top. Slightly cloudy, yellow. Oils and malt, transatlantic integration. Average carbonation, small champagne bubbles. Medium body, alcohol noticeable. Really good noble unfiltered beer.

Dit bier heeft een mooie gelaagdheid. Eerste is hij wat bitter met citrusinvloeden, daarna volgt een romige laag met tropisch fruit. In de afdronk komt weer een klein bittertje terug met een zoete finish. Prachtig bier!

Xstream (242) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2014
Zo, dan blijkt dat die Italianen ook heerlijke biertjes kunnen maken. Deze Is erg fruitig en zoetig met een milde grapefruit bitter, maar niet zo erg als al die andere extra hop biertjes die er vaak meteen weer in doorslaan. Mooie balans. Fris en fruitig. Heerlijk zomer biertje.

Rolfarild (192) - NORWAY - JUL 26, 2015
Golden with a big, white, frothy head and lots of lacing. Aroma od orange, peach, grass and saaz hops. Taste sweet with spice, citus, caramell and bread. Aftertaste dry bitterness and tropical fruits. Creamy mouthfeel that ends up dry and chrispy.

Di colore oro pallido, velata, ha una bella schiuma fine, cremosa e persistente. Anche il naso si presenta in ottima forma, con molta frutta (polpa di agrumi, pesca, frutti tropicali) e sentori floreali; semplice ma elegantissimo. Abbastanza carbonata, al palato rivela un corpo molto rotondo e sostenuto, dove però i malti non trovano lo spazio che vorrebbero o forse vengono semplicemente sopraffatti dalla generosa luppolatura. Ti aspetteresti un’imperiale tappeto di malti fragranti o crosta di pane, invece l’imbocco è subito agrumato, ultimo strascico dell’aroma, mutando poi rapidamente verso un deciso ed elegante amaro erbaceo, finalmente in piena tradizione boema, dominato dal saaz. Bel taglio secco, a fine corsa, con un lungo retrogusto amaro erbaceo.
