Birra del Borgo ReAle 7 Seven Anniversario
Brewery: Birra Del Borgo
Style: American Pale Ale
Format: 750ml Bottle
Aniversario 7 follows some big footsteps from previous years anniversary beers all rated in the high 90's on Rate Beer. This does not disappoint and is definitely a peculiar beer and among the most waited for in their range. Considering how much everybody loved last year version, ReAle 6 Anniversario, they decided to keep its main features. Using the same malts from their classic ReAle and an interesting hops' mix (which they added with a continuous hopping process during the boil, combined with dry hopping during the ageing) coming from the different Continents: Hallertau Saphir from Europe, Amarillo from America, Nelson Sauvin from Oceania and Sorachi Ace from Asia. But Africa was missing… so they decided to add an alternative ingredient from this continent: roiboos (Aspalathus linearis), a sort of bush coming from South Africa. Its leaves are used to brew a kind of herbal tea also adding spices, in this case black pepper and orange zest. They also added a mix of cinnamon and other spices coming from Zanzibar. This gave an intense and nice aroma, with scents of tropical fruit and citrus. But it's not finished yet! they also made a Special Edition (or we should say, a double special!), the “7 oak aged” matured in wooden barrels. Enjoy!
