La Riserva Speciale nasce dall’alchimia tra l’estro poetico e visionario di Tonino Guerra, grande sceneggiatore e poeta, che ne ha curato l’etichetta e la maestria tecnica del brewmaster più famoso degli Stati Uniti, Garrett Oliver, creatore delle birre Brooklyn Brewery.

Birra dall’aspetto velato con un colore che ricorda l’albicocca arricchito da riflessi rosati. Garrett Oliver racconta che nella preparazione: «ho impiegato la purissima Acqua proveniente dalla sorgente di proprietà di Birra Amarcord, Malto d’Orzo e Luppolo, Miele d’Acacia e Millefiori, la Visciola che è una ciliegia selvatica tipica di questa zona e il Prugnolo, un altro frutto che nasce spontaneo in questo territorio». Il risultato è una birra elegante, che matura almeno nove mesi prima di essere pronta e che ha una naturale longevità. Una birra complessa e raffinata, un mosaico di ingredienti nobilitati dall’uso di Lieviti dello Champagne, una birra che ha molte e interessanti possibilità di abbinamento con la cucina della tradizione e con quella più creativa.

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

- Light pink foam, creamy, soft, fine and very persistent.
- Beer pink peach - orange, veiled, with pearly reflections.
- Warm and structured body, fine and thin perlage.
- The nose, at slightly higher service temperatures, can feelevery notes: velvety notes of yeast, fresh wild fruit among which the sloe persists, sweet honey.
- The same aromatic bouquet could be felt in the palate.
- A series of flavors and aromas surprise our senses: velvety feeling given by the yeast in suspension, the same that ferment this beer for at least nine months; the freshness and the acidity by the wild fruits harmonized by the sweet coming from the honeys and the malt. Bitterness practically absent, elegant and smooth dry end.
- Good the aftertaste persistence.
- Our celebratory beer, with high alcohol content and made with sought and unusual ingredients. Ingredients among which the Champagne yeast, wildflower honey and acacia’s honey, wild cherry and blackthorn, which are wild fruits that grow spontaneously in the hills between the Marche region and the Adriatic coast. A marriage with the arts: the art of brewing played by Garrett Oliver, who collaborated in the realization of the recipe, and art in its various forms represented by Tonino Guerra (writer, poet, painter, ...), who wanted the wild fruits of his loved land in this beer, adorned by a dreamlike label designed by his own hand.
