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.

- 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 acacias 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.

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle share at CBC Clerkenwell, many thanks to Ken. 10%. Hazy peachy orange, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is varnish, white spirit, grape juice and rhubarb. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is varnish, glue, rhubarb tart. Quite strange. Not sure what they were aiming for, but whatever it was I think they missed. Still, its not bad.

teorn88 (7632) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 5, 2011
75cl bottle. Quite a special one here. Pours a bright orange color with an abundant creamy white head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is on the sweet side with a predominance of caramel notes and fruits. Peaches and rad brries in the nose with molasses and caramel. Taste is sweet again with a slight tartness in the back. Burnt sugar, fruits and some yeast. Slight alcohol burn too. Full mouthfeel and good amount of carbonation. Overall, very interesting, also if the wheat character is not up front and the fruits could be pushed further to me.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2013 750 ml bottle. Slightly cloudy orange body with a big off-white head. Strong and nice aroma of caramel malt, fruit and spices with a hint of dry fruit. Flavour is sweet malty, fruity, spicy, light fruity acidity and some yeast. Well hidden alcohol, moderate bitterness, medium body and a nice, spicy, fruity aftertaste. A bit unusually, but nice and refreshing.

DutchDrebus (5800) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
Tasted this at a special tasting session at Caf Buitenlust, Oirschot, given by Benito. Its quite an experience to drink this one. A colour i hadnt seen before, very luxurious glasses. Doesnt have to much of a smell except for something sweetish, honey like. Some people loved it, but to me it was a bit to watery and lacking in taste. Special one though.

ClubGonzo (5646) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a cloudy orange body with a large creamy white head. Nose is complex notes of dark and red berries, syrup, raisins, white sugar, caramel and hints of straw and dusty grass. Taste is white sugar, raisins, plums, red berries, alcohol, straw and hints of candi sugar, honey and dry yeast tones. Medium to full body, high carbonation. Once again, an Italian experimental ale full of gusto and with little to no direction. Is this a mead, fruit beer or Belgian strong ale? Only an Italian would now. Or, at least, not me. Not horrible, just very strange and not too wonderful in any way.

Bottle. Aroma fruity, evidently sour, simple fruitish sourness, peach. Hazy orange colour with a pinky tint. Taste is fruity, peach, berries, slight general yeastiness, light to moderate sourness. Quite easily drinkable. Overall somewhat simple sourness and also straightforward overall character. Very good nevertheless.
