COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

pours clear copper, thick foamy white head, complex aroma of yeast, green olive, and yes, bandaid... taste is sour, citrus, wood, leather, and white wine, very interesting ... not a beer Iím used to but leaves me wanting more.

Pretty nice wild with huge brett character. Tons of bandaid and medicinal brett with a light tropical fruit character and a very very slight tartness on the backend.

(bottle - 375 ml) Orange copper pour. The same dry tart funky aroma. Acidic and vinegary flavor with a sad lack of mango in it. Can get the barrel and Chardonnay notes but I missed the mango.
