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.

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.

TimE (3357) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 24, 2014
deep golden. Clearly Belgian yeast in the nose, with some hop and malt character but not too distinctive. The mouth has a touch of band aid. Malty. Really undistinguished.

Foffern (1298) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy dark orange colour with a big soapy off-white head. Aroma of hay, pale malt, citrus and Belgian yeast. Fruity flavour of pear, sweet malt and marzipan. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A fruity, rich and good beer.

Rune (8486) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 26, 2013
500ml bottle picked up at Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo and carried back home. Partially gushing content. Big rocky, white head slowly collapsing over a muddy, orange coloured body. Fruit and grain to the nose. Taste of mid-sweet, earthy malts, a little lactose and spices on a backbone of subdued yeasty fruitiness. Dry spiced fruity ending. Easy to drink. Just alright (Tromsø, 25.04.2013).

Palme (3546) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 22, 2013
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. Light cloudy in the glass with a big off-white top and some big chunky sediments. Flour and fruits on the nose. A little bit of wheat as well. The aroma is not that bad at all. It’s average on the carbonation and thin oily on the mouthfeel. A bit herbal and floral flavors. I get more of that wheat, some grains before It ends quite dry in the mouth. Straight forward, easy to drink but not especially memorable. 31.03.2013

ej (785) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2013
Golden and hazy with loads of floaties. Relatively low head formation. Mellow aroma of white bread, maize and malts. Taste is mellow and rather bland, some subdued maltyness and low bitterness.

ClubGonzo (4232) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a hazy light orange body with a small white head. Nose is mild floral heather tones with pale malts and light lactic hints. Taste is floral heather-like herbal tones with pale malts and hints of chamomile and grains. Medium body and carbonation. Fair enough, but fails to make a lasting impression.

Emeister84 (1129) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Aromas of golden earth--hay, straw--, toffee, and bread. Golden-orange, with off-white head foam. Some sweetness, balanced nicely by a soft bitterness. Light-medium bodied with average carbonation, and finishes pretty clean with some lingering caramel and yeasty/fruity flavors.
