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!

Tap. Pours bit hazy amber with a medium white head. The aroma is yeasty and fruity with lots of sweet berries. The flavor is light acidic with white wine notes. Grapes and exotic fruit. The mango is not very profound.

Lightly hazy amber beer with a tidy cream coloured head. Palate is light, crisp and semi dry. Minerals. Light white wine and a touch of sourness. A little creamy malt in the mid. Mildly bitter seltzer minerals. Subtle mango before the minerally dry finish. Bitter minerally aftertaste.

Borefts 2013 - Tart wine aroma and initial sharp wine taste, quite acidic. Later the sweet mango helps tone down the sharpness. Finishes dry.
