This version of the Itís Alive has the mango to give it that sweet fruity tropical fruit taste, while the Chardonnay barrel aging gives it a vineous character. Brett gives the tartness. Complex beer Ė it is very much alive!

Pulled this one out of the fridge way too cold, so sitting here nosing the goodness of this beer. Mango wasnít too evident on the palate and the flavours fell away quicker than I would have liked. Itís a good beer but the flavours were muted..
