This version of the Its 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 it is very much alive!

Tmoney99 (13244) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour fruit and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tropical fruit flavor with a medium to heavy fruit, wood & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

Det hr var en bra och komplex l med fina toner av syra, tropiska frukter och grs. Kroppen var stabil och balansen satt dr den skulle. Slutsats; riktigt trevlig l.

olio (8990) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 8, 2014
375 ml bottle. BBE 16.01.2019.
Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Nice tangy grapefruit aroma with wood and some sweet notes from the mango I presume. Some alcohol comes through on the flavor, dry wooden notes, grass, grapefruits and gooseberries, maybe faint mango too, apricot on the aftertaste, weirdly. Decent but not that special despite the specs.

lusikka (7680) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 8, 2014
375 ml bottle. Pours a copper amber colour with a foamy head. Aroma of citrus, mango jam, white grapes and some urinal cake. Flavour of tart wooden notes, sweet mango jam, white grapes, yeast, some berries, caramel sweetness and alcohol. Medium bodied. Alcohol comes through a lot, thus finishing bone-dry. A bit thin. Gimmicky.

Quite strong and pale, but also hoppy, a bit too much of alcohol taste. The smell is nice!!

Holmen1 (4696) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2014
Fra fat p Whats Brewing smaksfest nov-14 : uklar mrk oransje med tett skum som varer. Aroma minner om solvarme tropiske frukter og sure br. Mangoen crasher med det vinse fra chardonnayfatet, og det hele bllir litt ufriskt.

tandembrauer (1059) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2014
At Whats Brewing 2014, Stavanger. Pours hazy dark orange. Aroma of vinegar, wine, fruit, some medicine. Mildly sour taste, fruity. Not a very prominent taste, but very good.

RexTalionis (3474) - FINLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy mahogny in color with an off-white head. Theres instantly some part of barnyard and vinegary notes on the nose, which are closely followed by some notes of white wine grapes from the Chardonnay barrel and then theres also subtle tropical fruityness. Very funky notes indeed. Bit of wooden barrel notes mixed with some funky and citrus notes in taste. Theres also some hints of tropical fruityness with influences of sweet and overcooked carrot in the middle here. Little bit of spices and more of them citrus notes in the end. Quite tasty though.
