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.

Grzesiek79 (4487) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 5, 2017
750ml Swing-top bottle serve in bucked with water and ice cubes. Osiagnelo temperature 5 stopni Celsjusza. Spora blyskawicznie rosnaca pianka jak w szampanie ale tak szybko nie opada lecz jest dosc dlugo trwala. Barwa zamglona pomaranczowa z jaso szarymi odcieniami bladego rozu. Aromat miodowo owocowy, owce lesne. Smak to glownie syrop z agawy, klonowy i miod. Owocow w smaku niezbyt mocno sie wyczuwa, wisni nic, a nic moze troszke tej dzikiej sliwki, ale jesli owoce to tylko nasuwaja mi sie do glowy figi, mnostwo figowego dzemu. Piwo mimo owocow malo owocowe, wytrawne i mimo sporych odczuc miodu naprawde nie bylo slodkie. Kapitalnie dobrane i zgrane jest tu wszystko, do tego piekna butelka, alkohol zupelnie jakby go nie bylo. Federico Fellini Still Alive!

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.

Sdaniel90 (1111) - Mexico City, MEXICO - APR 9, 2016
Bottle, 75cl. Sparkling peach colour with a frothy offwhite head and sticky lacing. Complex aromas of cherry, honey, berries, herbs, alcohol. Medium bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Dry, oily and astringent. Moderate sweet fruity character into a sour and bitter alcohol finish. Amazing and truly unique.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2016
Bottled. Orangeish golden colour, mediumsized white fluffy head. Aroma is quite strong on the alcohol, some rhubarb, mild herbs, some grape as well as some mild resiny notes. Flavour is gluelike alcohol, some rhubarb, mild grass as well as some yeast and mild strange sweetness to it.

Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell 10/9/2015. Many thanks to Kenny for this one. Translucent yellow / straw coloured pour with a lasting thin white head . Aroma is solvent alcohol, with apple, grape and apricot fruits. Flavour is composed of Belgian yeast, woody, tart apple, apricot and grains. Palate is grainy, spicy and highish carbonation, tangy grape. Not a huge fan of this.

Leighton (22834) - 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.
