This version of the It’s 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!

RexTalionis (3522) - FINLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy mahogny in color with an off-white head. There’s 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 there’s also subtle tropical fruityness. Very funky notes indeed. Bit of wooden barrel notes mixed with some funky and citrus notes in taste. There’s 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.

bastarda (439) - Freiburg, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2014
@Cerveteca Lisboa, 13th August 14; already most complex in its aromas, beautifully ranging from dry cidre, woody, oaky notes to some hints of white wine and even a whiff of very fresh Brie and some really very subtle hint of Mango. Tastewise, its a lot less sour than expected from sniffing but an absolotely fine tartness with woody notes, a lot like Champagne and a very subtle hint of Mango.

Vestergaard (1764) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark, Brown amber. Aroma is dry, vinous, wooden, bretty stuff. Great deal of exotic fruits, and actually a good deal of hops. Taste is dry without being too funky. Bitter, vinous and hoppy notes up front, followed by more sweet, fruity notes, that reveal a certain malt- and alcohol presence. Despite that, the alcohol is well hidden. Sparkling, dry mouth feel. Medium-High carb. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Klimaet (1979) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle shared with Vestergaard and Rasmusott. Thanks guise <3. Pours a hazy dark amber with a medium sliiiightly offwhite head. Aromas of white wine, slight unripe berries-tartness, slightly tropical fruits sweetness, slight caramel and brettanomyces. Taste is pretty sweet up front, slightly unripe berries-tartness as from the nose, caramel and pretty yeasty.

RasmusOtt (2389) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2014
Pours a dark amber with a tiny fizzy head. Aroma of wild barnyard brett, green grapes, dry champagne, sweeter fresh fruits in the background. Also get some straw and hay but the specific mango is not really to be sensed here for me. Taste of dry, weak sour and with a weak sweet fruity note on the end. I get green grapes, weak citrusy fruits, straw, barnyard and a champagne dryness to it overall. Very good and refreshing, would love to try it fresh to see if the mango will be more specific.
