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.

- 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.

Arancio opalescente con riflessi rosati, schiuma bianca eccezionalmente persistente vista l'alta gradazione alcolica. Aroma di lievito da champagne, miele, leggera banana matura. Al palato stesse caratteristiche, in un secondo momento si sentono chiaramente le visciole ed il miele, sul finale bella nota di frumento. Corpo leggero, molto carbonata. Molto elegante e delicata.

Percy0103 (763) - MEXICO - APR 9, 2016
Bottle, 750ml. A cloudy amber beer with a small white head. Aroma is of honey, berries and champagne. Taste is somewhat bitter with a sourish alcoholic finish. Medium bodied with some carbonation. Dry and astringent with a well-balanced alcoholic aftertaste.

JorisPPattyn (9878) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2011
Very fine & dense head with a faint pinkish sheen; orange-amberish beer with again a faint rosy/pink haze; textbook lace. Alcoholic, fruity (wild fruit, unripe raspberry, orangezeste), and greenery. Again unripe or wild, tart fruit. Faint artichoke-like flavour with some more pale malts and other grain. In a discreet way, vinous. Quite carbonated MF, some alcohol, but again discreet. Medium bodied at best, seems well-attenuated. Fine, but not really outstanding. Wheat is not obvious. I wonder what the Garrett Oliver connection might be. The Italian is too exotic for me.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk at the Danish Invasion extravaganza. Pale golden orange, thick white head fades to a frothy white rim. Nice wheaty zesty nose, cloves, touch of pepper tickling the nostrils, citrus hints. Similar flavours, touch of kiwi fruit, grapefruit bitterness, nice wheaty bubblegum hints, light grapefruit & kiwi bitter linger on the finish. Hides alcohol well, but a bit fizzy and a bit thin.

Yozora (38) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle courtesy my gf, bought at a bottle shop in Copenhagen. Pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, spices, floral notes, honey, caramel, toffee with a hint of alcohol. Taste is toffee, cherries, almonds, honey, floral, spicy, yeasty, plums, bready malt with a well balanced bitterness. Medium body with a medium to high carbonation. Very different and interesting beer expected a more fruity beer from the description but got a more malt forward, belgian one with some floral hints. Not bad at all and very different from most offerings out there.
