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!

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.

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.

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

Drinking in riedel Chardonnay glass. Pour medium amber with a small crisp white head. Aroma is very unique tart,yeast,malts and light wood notes. A nice flavored beer starts out crisp and tart but not sour with a heavy grain/ malty finsh. I wish I could have found the mango oh well.

Ready4Aheady (38) - New York, USA - APR 7, 2014
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.
