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 at ōl&BrÝd. Golden a,ber color with thin white head. Aroma of brett, mango, skunky. Taste of fruit, mango, brett, funky. Nice one but like the one without BA. But still quite enjoyable

Pours a orangish golden one finger head. Sugar coated slight funky nose. Super refreshing on the palate. This would be a good cros-over beer for wine drinkers. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiulijn (16931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Hazy amber color with compact head. Vinous aroma, grapes with light hazelnuts. Smooth mouthfeel; there is some acidity, fruitiness, wood, astringency; medium to strong bitterness.
Not a bad beer, but altogether itís not cohesive.

hopwine (611) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Mango, Chardonnay, mild funk on the nose. Flavor is the same plus some mild oak and light acidity. Not as exciting as I was hoping for but still solid.

b3shine (7140) - Indiana, USA - JUN 11, 2014
12.7 oz bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a semi-transparent fuller orange with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; mango and soft funk. Tastes like it smells with a nice, lively mouthfeel. Good beer, and one of the better varietals.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle. Deep hazy golden with a lively white head. Earthy, funky, and modestly sour, with sweet rounded white vinous notes. Absolutely no sign of the mango for me. Still quite a nice brew regardless.

Borresteijn (5662) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2014
Sample from 37.5cl bottle at De Bierkoning. Slightly hazy amber colour, off-white head. Aroma is quite muted, just light Bretty funk, hint of fruit, later on some vanilla custard and mango comes out. Flavour is medium-sweet, malty, caramel, light funky, vanilla, hint of fruit, light vinous, light-bitter finish. Light-bodied. Completely different from the White Wine Barrel version.

Christian (11983) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2014
At Borefts Beer Festival 2013. Golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of funk and leather, with grapefruit and a touch of white wine. Dry, fruity and funky flavour with wood, pineapple and white wine.

tobias (204) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2014
375ml bottle: pours like a brand new penny. Fluffy white head that is shot lived. Subtle yet complex aroma with notes of apple, pear, grapes, and straw with hints of vanilla, mango and pineapple. Less funky than I was expecting. I was expecting something really tart and sour. The funkiness and sourness are subdued but very much in balance with the malty, fruit flavors presence. Very balanced and drinkable beer!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
