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!

On tap at Mikkeller Bar SF soft opening. Phenols, brett, slight sweet fruitiness, honey, malt, yeasty. Bottom line: too much bandaid, not enough mango, not enough sour.

Cirrhosis (1262) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2013
Most annoying waiter on the planet dropped off a mildly hazy taney orange beer in front of me. Aroma hits both sweet and sour, with big brett and obvious white wine, I can trick myself into smelling the mango. Mild funk and oak hit the taste, tropical fruit that but I could never really nail down the mango, brett, the chardonnay is obvious and really dries out the flavor. Dry and crisp, easy to drink, more funky then sour, fruit (every time I type fruit I think of Sean DoveÖÖ.. Donít know why) OAK!!!! Good beer the end.

Cool_Bond (2003) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2013
Wonderful aromas of mango and sweet grapes. The taste is a little worse but what I feel is most liquor taste. The aftertaste disappears quickly. Okay to drink but not much more. Follow me @ Kung av Ųl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Men nog var det peach i också? Kan ev rejta fel nu. Tunn och frisk. Känner inget av chardonnayfatet, hur fasen nu ett sådant fat smakar i en öl. Bra tempererad. På mikkeller bar

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - JUL 18, 2013
On tap at Mikkeller Bar in SF. Aroma is sour/Brett funk and Chardonnay barrel. Flavor catches some bitter hop and funk. You totally missed me on the Chardonnay and mango. DTM said mango; I say Mongo. Fair at best sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from The Davis Beer Shop. Pours light copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is pleasantly sour. Not vinegar. Not ? Pleasant. Med body. Mango is somewhat obscured by the tart/sour, wood and general earthiness. Not getting a lot of white grape either. But the overall effect is quite wonderful. Thereís a sour oak fruit effect. Once in awhile mango seems discernible. I can imagine grape once in awhile. Itís always tart/wood. Dry. Quite the experience.
