COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Leighton (22055) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2015
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co, Clekenwell - London. Many thanks to Kenny. Pours unclear pinkish gold with a foamy white cap. The nose holds doughy pale bread, citrus, herbs. Medium sweet flavour with light alcohol bump, lemon rind, bitter grass, more herbal notes. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with notes of crusty bread, grains and citrus fruits. Interesting. OK.

Rasmus40 (21696) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2013

Theydon_Bois (20485) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle split at CBC Clerko, thanks to Kenny, 10/09/15. Hazed orange topped with a decent off white swirl. Nose is straw, light puke, pink berry, floral notes. Taste comprises bitter fruit, farmy, light wood, faint citric peel, hay. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok ... hides the ABV well but on the other hand doesn’t deliver a lot on said ABV.

3.4
yngwie (17185) - 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 don’t comply with the German purity law, but that’s perfectly fine with me. I still don’t know if I think it was a well performed experiment, but it’s definitely far from bad, and the use of ingredients are certainly expected considering it’s an Italian brewery. 130208

Bottle at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Italian beer tasting presented by Benito. Smell fresh, light sweetness, light fruity. Taste the same. Almost a little champagne-like. Good carbo and body.

Scopey (15478) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle thanks to Kenny. It pours murky hazy rose with a decent off-white head. The nose is soft, juicy, floral/hibiscus, light jam, bubblegum, light plastic and Welch’s grape juice. The taste is crisp, bitter, toasty, light spice, hibiscus, sweet, juicy, grape skin and rhubarb. Medium + body and highish carbonation. A touch restrained overall, but enjoyable nonetheless. Hides abv pretty well also.
