COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La birra Morgana è una birra artigianale non filtrata (quindi sul fondo della bottiglia troveremo un notevole sedimento), non pastorizzata (di conseguenza non subisce quel trattamento termico che rende "sterile" la birra, per cui i principi attivi restano vivi), ed è una birra ad alta fermentazione; cio’ significa che andiamo ad utilizzare un lievito che lavora ad alte temperature (circa 20 C°.), contrariamente alla stragrande maggioranza delle birre che sono a bassa fermentazione, perchè pensiamo che cosi facendo possano essere esaltati i profumi e gli aromi. Le varietà di luppolo utilizzate (Hallertauer o Tettnang tedesco per l’amaro, ed il Saaz ceco per il profumo), variano sensibilmente di volta in volta, anche a seconda delle stagioni. L’ esigua quantità prodotta per ogni cotta, e l’ utilizzo di un impianto quasi completamente a controllo manuale, ne fanno un prodotto suscettibile a leggere ma molteplici variabili. Dopo la fermentazione primaria, viene imbottigliata con una piccola aggiunta di zucchero, per far ripartire la fermentazione secondaria, in questa fase si ha la formazione della classica gasatura naturale e la cosiddetta presa di spuma. Questo processo di rifermentazione continua con il passare dei giorni, in maniera sempre piu’ lenta, da cio’ si intuisce che anche il gusto, piu’ passa il tempo e piu’ si evolve. Tutti i fattori precedentemente elencati possono quindi dare origine a differenze tra un lotto di produzione e l’altro. Queste differenze devono essere considerate come una caratteristica della Morgana Birra col fondo, della sua genuinità ed artigianalità.

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. It pours an unclear, orange-golden body and a finger-thick off-white to light beige head. The aroma is quite weak, with some milky notes, but mostly fruityness and some yeasty notes. The flavor is fruity and lighlty yeasty, with some milky notes. Medium body, quite dry. Pleasant bitterness in the finish. Well, it seems lightly infected, but it’s still far from undrinkable. 121110

sneevel (71) - - OCT 10, 2012
Serious gushing. Pours yellow golden with a decent white head, looks good. Pretty nice aromas, light malt, some floral and a tiny bit of esters. Some decent malt in the taste as well, but turns watery and a bit sourbitter at the end. Not bad at all, but too expensive, and half the contents of the bottle spewed out upon opening.

larsga (6276) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2012
Gusher. Huge offwhite head. Hazy orangey body with strong carbonation and visible particles. Continues to gush after I’ve poured the first bit. Fruity chalky earthy aroma with funky notes. Dry fruity chalky floral taste with herbal earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mildish, chalky mouthfeel. Dry tropical fruit and earthy straw aftertaste with herbal funky notes. Unsusual, and surprisingly dry.

tia (1004) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle. Hazy honey color with big cream dissipating head and light lacing. Smells like honey, too, on a biscuit. Flavor also reminiscent of honey plus a nice bitter note. Light and refreshing, but not quite crisp. Light bitter finish.
