COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Riserva Speciale nasce dallalchimia tra lestro poetico e visionario di Tonino Guerra, grande sceneggiatore e poeta, che ne ha curato letichetta e la maestria tecnica del brewmaster pi famoso degli Stati Uniti, Garrett Oliver, creatore delle birre Brooklyn Brewery.

Birra dallaspetto velato con un colore che ricorda lalbicocca arricchito da riflessi rosati. Garrett Oliver racconta che nella preparazione: ho impiegato la purissima Acqua proveniente dalla sorgente di propriet di Birra Amarcord, Malto dOrzo e Luppolo, Miele dAcacia e Millefiori, la Visciola che una ciliegia selvatica tipica di questa zona e il Prugnolo, un altro frutto che nasce spontaneo in questo territorio. Il risultato una birra elegante, che matura almeno nove mesi prima di essere pronta e che ha una naturale longevit. Una birra complessa e raffinata, un mosaico di ingredienti nobilitati dalluso di Lieviti dello Champagne, una birra che ha molte e interessanti possibilit di abbinamento con la cucina della tradizione e con quella pi creativa.

Rifermentata in bottiglia con Lieviti di Champagne che le conferiscono un perlage fine ed elegante, tipico dei vini pi pregiati.

Abbinamenti consigliati
Il carattere unico di Amarcord Riserva Speciale la rende perfetta per il formaggio pecorino, il pat, i piatti di anatra, maiale e coniglio ma anche per le ostriche e i pesci, oppure semplicemente come aperitivo per occasioni da non dimenticare.

Note: Brewed with acacia and wildflower honey, Visciola wild sour cherry and blackthorn. Refermented in the bottle with Champagne yeast.

SlackerMads (2977) - DENMARK - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle. Label doesnt mention blackthorn as the description here on RB does. Hazy orange with a small white head. Honey, grain, straw, candlewax. Medium/full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Seems pointless to me, but inoffensive and hides the alcohol well.

yngwie (16590) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. A dense, white head sits on top of a lightly unclear, golden body. The aroma has a strange fruityness, in a quite nice way though. Meaty malts in the back. The flavor is mostly fruity, still with the same strange fruity touch found in the nose, as well as a little maltyness and a bitter touch. Full-bodied and quite dry. Some bitterness in the else fruity finish. Judging from the commercial description this beer definitely dont comply with the German purity law, but thats perfectly fine with me. I still dont know if I think it was a well performed experiment, but its definitely far from bad, and the use of ingredients are certainly expected considering its an Italian brewery. 130208

Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel.
Pours clear orange with a small head. Aroma is vinoius, light cherrues, a bit of wet socks, honey, thyme and somewhat dusty. Medium carbonation, fine dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is better than the aroma. Fairly soft caramel malts, clear honey and light vinious. Well balanced with a light fruity tartness and varming alcohol. Quite elegant, really.
