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.

RC8 (308) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2021
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2021 This was a gift and I had never heard of it, so my expectations were moderate. After serving it I was blown right away by the aroma. It somehow manages to be a very hoppy beer while also retaining a pilsener-quality. It is not particularly sweet or malty, but enough to balance the hops beautifully. Overall I was extremely impressed. I am giving it a great review because it's unclear to me how you could make a beer in this style any better than this.

Nordcore (3093) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2021
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2021 Golden, clear with a medium white head. A hops, lemon and straw aroma. Medium bitter with a soft hops and straw end.

Rider0nTheStorm (614) - Ablis, FRANCE - SEP 6, 2021
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2021 Bouteille achetée chez Saveur Bière. Couleur jaune orangé, un peu trouble. Nez bien fruité avec des notes tropicales. En bouche c'est soyeux et pas mal du tout, bon équilibre entre les malts et les houblons. C'est pas épais mais c'est loin d'être léger. Ici je crois qu'il est difficile de reconnaitre une pilsner ou une ale.

Gangstergafje (2768) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2021
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2021 22-05-2021; bottle; at home (bought at Saveur Bière, as part of their April 2021 discovery box). The looks of the beer are nice. It is a fine looking golden yellow beer, crystal clear and with a nice slight haziness,. On top of the beer a very nice layer of frothy white foam is formed. Foam retention is average and a nice thick drape is left on the beer. Looking good. The aroma of the beer is very nice. It is very aromatic, and completely different from what I expected. The malts give some nice aromas of biscuit and some grain. Not too strong. Hops are very prominent in this beer. They give loads of tropical fruits. There is lemon zest, grapefruit zest and juice and a touch of orange. There are nice notes of passionfruit and some nice mango too, together with some warming pine aromas, like walking trough a Italian pine forest in the summer. Lovely. The label saus Imperial Pilsener, but it almost feels like a APA or IPA. Lovely beer. The taste of the beer is also very pleasant. It is loaded with sweet malt aromas and also some sweet fruity notes. The hops give a nice bitterness, but also some nice fruity sours. The result is a beer that is in quite good balance, very nice! The palate of the beer also is very nice. Medium body, extremely smooth and nice medium-light carbonation, enhancing the smoothness of the beer. The finish is filled with these nice hops, filled with tropical fruits. Also some nice touches of the malts. All in all, it really is a very lovely beer. Good work.

Hrc_Cro (1182) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 3, 2021
UPDATED: APR 3, 2021 0.33l bottle. Misty golden color with white head. Aroma of malt, hops, fruits, mango and flowers. Taste is bitter and sweet.

PellicleMeister11 (350) - Torino, ITALY - MAR 6, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2021 Bevuta in bottiglia da 33. Sentori di luppolo e lievito nell'aroma. Bella schiuma a grana grossa. Gialla. Comportamento sinusoidale fra dolce e amaro. Si sente l'alcool. CfgpPr

MartinNaxera (733) - Pilsen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 1, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2021 Malty citrusy aroma. Great unfiltered lager pale colour and solid head. Taste is fruity, malty, bit yeasty. Solid body and just a limited carbonation. Subtle long lasting bitterness. Nice one!

Rune (21710) - Tromso, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2020
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2020 330ml stylish bottle bought from Vinmonopolet Nettbutikk. Shared with Finn. Covering white head leaving rings of lace on the glass, near clear golden body. Quite inviting smell of grain and herbal hops. Decent blended taste of noble hops, bread, and a citrus bite. Malt-fruity, mid-sweet ending. Well bodied. Pretty good. (Bergstua, Malangen 28.10.2020).

Finn (14670) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2020
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2020 Fellesbestilling. Delt med Rune på Bergstua. Lys gylden. Klar. Lavt tett skum. Lett brødaroma. Hint av frukt. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken tørket frukt. Tørr avslutning.
