COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La madre di tutte le birre

Birra chiara leggera tipo Lambic, pi delicata, meno estrema, fatta fermentare con il lievito madre da panificazione. Se il Lambic lanello mancante tra la birra e il vino, Birra Madre

Birra Madre nasce dallamore per il pane, simbolo della civilt contadina, prodotto di fermentazione del cereale come la birra; dallamicizia con Davide Longoni, grande panificatore in Realdino, localit brianzola sul fiume Lambro; e dal fascino che hanno su tutti noi le birre Lmbic, tipologia belga a fermentazione spontanea in cui rivive, presa dallaria, tutta la flora microbica della valle della Senne (Bruxelles).

Noi abbiamo fatto qualcosa di simile: abbiamo preso il lievito madre di Davide e abbiamo fatto vivere la nostra birra con il fermento del suo pane, che in equilibrio microbico con lambiente esterno e comprende in s i lieviti e i batteri autoctoni di tutta questarea, la valle del nostro amato (e tanto martoriato) Lambro.

Il risultato, come per i Lmbic, una birra particolarissima, secca e sapida, vinosa e sidrosa, con un retrogusto decisamente acidulo e i sentori minerali e organici tipici della pasta madre. il nostro Lmbic sul fiume Lambro (scherzosamente detto Lmbric), maturato in botte nove mesi e fatto uscire a febbraio in due versioni: normale (senza schiuma) e rifermentato in bottiglia (la Gueuze brianzola: la Gazeuse!).

Se la birra e il pane sono forme di presentazione dello stesso prodotto, questa birra lanello mancante tra la birra e il pane. la Madre di tutte le birre!

Il disegno in etichetta di Enrico Mason, artista e ideatore della Befana sul Lambro.

brianza_ale (209) - ITALY - JAN 9, 2015
37,5cl bottle, year 2012, teku glass. Pours into the glass with no head at all; very slighlty cloudy full golden, apple juice like, colour. Smells actually almost identiacl to a lambic, with those particular acidic, bacteria and yeasty notes, pronounced cider like charcater, basement, wood and river side aroma. Tastes apples, sourdough paste, vinous, bit lemony and bubblegum; medium quite dominant sweet note, moderate and smooth acidic note. Really any carbonation, zero, the body is so thin it seems water. Fruity, dough and yeasty aromatic finish. Not bad at all, aromas and notes are fine, but the body is really so much and that alone ruins quite much the whole beer in my opinion. Also a bit too much for sweet in my opinion, especially for the genre. Still remains a nice and respectable attempt to brew a spontaneous fermentation beer outside Belgium , and by the way the nose is great !!

DSG (12533) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Mortlach for this bottle! 2011 bottle. Hazy yellow. Great funky barnyard aroma with a bit of vinegar notes, oak, sweaty notes and fruitiness. Sour flavor, somewhat lemony, with nice funk, fruitiness and a mild honey-ish sweetness in the back. Medium-bodied. Very pleasant.

Courtesy of Daniele, brewed 10.09, batch L27
Cloudy golden color with small head, short retention. I expected a breadish aroma, instead there is some lactic, and light acetone; sour but not pungent, and without Bretts. The mouthfeel is not too dry, the acidity level is moderate, it has flavor of yeast, light bread, light lemon peel; balanced final, quite fresh.
Clearly an homebrew attempt at brewing Lambic; it would be a sour beer, not a Lambic (as the currently assigned style); although the curiosity of drinking a sourdough beer is satisfied.

Mortlach (2107) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 5, 2013
05/05/2013 Ma che siete a f (375ml bottle). Ambrata, limpida, schiuma leggerissima, virtualmente assente, con bolle grossolane, che scompare rapidamente. Naso magnifico, sentori di pasta lievita e frutta, un bel carattere vinoso. In bocca leggermente acida, molto morbida e discreta, forse un po leggerina. Corpo esile, carbonazione bassa. Lambic di buona fattura, pulito e dalla ottima beva, ma manca un po di carattere.
